technologies play a fundamental role in the activities of an
organization like Synthmuseum.com which operates at
an international level. We are based
in USA. We are in the business of providing the most accurate and unbiased information about vintage electronic musical instruments and providing other services of value to the electronic music community. Protecting your privacy and your personal data is an important aspect of the way we create, organize and implement our activities on-line and off-line.

Collection of Personal Data
We believe that there should be limits to the collection of personal data and any such data should be obtained by lawful and fair means and, where appropriate, with the knowledge or consent of the data subject.

Except for automatic server logging information, we do not collect any other data about your visit to synthmuseum.com.
The Classifieds Area
Some personal information is gathered when you register. During registration, we ask for your name and email address. The system will also ask for your street address, city, state/province, zip/postal code, country, telephone number, and the URL of your web site, although only fields that are marked with an asterisk (*) on the registration field are required. This information is used solely to assist you in navigating the system by automatically filling in certain forms (such as the ad posting form) with your information so that you don't have to continually re-enter it. Once you register you are no longer anonymous to Synthmuseum.com - you have a username and are able to take full advantage of the many offerings of the Synthmuseum.com Classifieds.
The Synthmuseum.com Classifieds may also collect IP addresses for system administration and to report aggregate information to our advertisers.
