We, e-muse.com, respect you, our user, and your privacy. It is our policy to comply with internationally recognized standards of personal data privacy protection and, in Taiwan, with the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (the "Ordinance").
This statement set outs our privacy policies and practices in relation to the following:
1. What information is collected

WHAT INFORMATION IS COLLECTED

The third kind is personal information which we collect during your subscription for certain email marketing programs such as opt-in email, opt-in newsletter, polling and special promotions ("Subscription Information"). Subscription Information includes all your Personally Identifiable Information, your email address and topic(s) interested to you.
HOW INFORMATION IS USED
Personally Identifiable Information is used solely for the purpose of identifying, managing and servicing individual user.
Aggregated Information is collected to help us to compile aggregate statistics on site usage and to analyse our users' demographics, interests and behaviour. This will give us a better understanding of the needs of our users and design our services and products accordingly.
Subscription Information is used to deliver the emails or newsletters to users who have chosen to subscribe to such emails or newsletters.

We only share your Personally Identifiable Information with e-muse.com's partners in accordance with our operating agreements with them.
We only share the Aggregate Information about our users with our advertising partners. We need to do this so that our advertising partners can target their advertisements at the right audiences.
