In order to improve the content and usability of nycmusicmonth.nyc (“Site”), the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment or its agent or contractor (“MOME”) automatically collects several categories of information from users. This information includes the following:
MOME uses this information to identify site performance needs; to ensure compatibility with the technology used by Site’s visitors, and to generally add and improve services offered on the Site. In order to accomplish those goals, from time to time, MOME may conduct statistical analysis and social media analysis of the data it collects.
MOME does not collect data for commercial or marketing purposes,3 and MOME does not sell, exchange or otherwise distribute the data collected by the Site for commercial or marketing purposes.
Information Submitted to the Site
During a session on the Site, a user may affirmatively submit information to MOME by, among other means, electronic mail (“e-mail”) or filling in and submitting an on-line form. Such affirmatively submitted information is stored in a secure environment, and will be used by MOME in furtherance of its duties or obligations.
The purposes to which you affirmatively submitted information may include, but are not limited to, the following:
MOME does not rent or sell personally identifiable information (e.g., information such as name, address, phone number, e-mail, etc., or other information that identifies or could lead to the identification of a user as a particular person), nor would MOME exchange or trade such information with third-parties without a user’s explicit permission.
MOME does not collect personally identifiable information about you during your visit to the Site unless you provide that information voluntarily by sending an email or completing an on-line form. You may choose not to send us an e-mail or complete an on-line form. This choice will not impact your ability to take advantage of most features of the website, including browsing or downloading most publicly available information.
Security and Monitoring
The act of using the Site constitutes the user’s express consent to MOME’s monitoring of all uses of the system. If such monitoring reveals possible evidence of criminal activity or any other unauthorized use, system administration personnel may provide your information to law enforcement or other officials, as authorized or required by law.
Cookies are text files, or entries in larger files, utilized to distinguish between visitors to a website, and to track information during multiple visits to a website. MOME uses “temporary cookies”5 on some parts of the Site, and such temporary cookies expire upon the end of the browsing session. The Site generally, do not use “persistent cookies.”6
Web Bugs (a/k/a Web Beacons)
The Site does not use web bugs7 on its web pages or in any html e-mail generated by use of the portal, or otherwise sent from the Site, for any purpose other than to identify site performance needs; to ensure compatibility with the technology used by the Site’s visitors, and to generally add and improve services offered on the Site.
No applications on the Site specifically solicit information from minors or seek to determine whether the visitor is a minor. Consequently, because such information will not be specifically identified as being from minors, users of the Site should be aware that personally identifiable information submitted to the Site by minors will be subject to being treated in the same manner as information given by an adult and may be subject to FOIL.
MOME strongly believes that parental supervision is an important factor in Internet use by minors. Therefore, MOME asks parents to guide their minor children when children are asked to provide any personal information online. MOME further asks that children ask for and receive their parent’s permission before providing any information online.
