When we use the term “personal information” we are referring to information that is connected to your name or can be reasonably connected to your name. This may include things like your IP address, e-mail address, mailing address, birthday, telephone number, photographs, personal images, or beauty profile information you provide that could be used to identify you, or information about the products you purchase, when those pieces of data are stored with your name. Any information that is not connected to your name is not considered personal information.
WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR INFORMATION?
Kove Audio uses the personal information that it collects to provide you with products you order, information, and services.

We may also use your personal information for other legitimate business purposes, including to detect and prevent fraud, to collect amounts owing to us and to maintain business records.
Like other sites, we may also passively collect information using various technologies (which cannot presently be used to specifically identify you) such as your site preferences, age, gender, language, time zone, income, and education (some of the information we ask for may be optional).

We collect your personal information from third parties, such as social media sites and data co-ops.
