Although you may use many features of this site without completing a registration or sign up form, visitors who do register and/or sign up for special services may have access to additional features of the site and are more likely to receive information particularly suited to their interests. For example, a registered user is eligible for additional services provided by this web site such as listener clubs and personalized content. Our registration and special services sign up forms may ask you for contact information, e.g. name or email address and demographic information, e.g. zip code or age. You must provide the information in order to receive the benefits of registration or of the special service. We may use the contact information that you give us to better tailor your web site experience to your interests, and to send you information about Radio One and its services as well as promotional material on behalf of some of our partners. We use other information that you provide to us to show you content in which you may be interested and to display the content according to your preferences. We will also share this information with the Radio One family in order to enhance your experience on this and other Radio One web sites.
From time to time, we may conduct online surveys and contests, which ask you for contact information, e.g. name or email address and demographic information, e.g. zip code or age. We may use this contact information from our surveys and contests to provide you with information about our company and promotional material on behalf of some of our partners, and to contact you when necessary.
To enhance Radio One's ability to tailor this site to your preferences, we may combine information that you provide us on registration and other online sign up forms with other information about you that we may obtain. We do not share that information with any other party.
This Radio One site may offer shopping services, which may be offered by us or by a firm that operates a store under contract with us. If our site offers shopping or other commercial services, you will use a customer order form to request information, products, and services. The order form will ask you to give us contact information, e.g. name or email address, financial information, e.g. account or credit card numbers, and demographic information, e.g. zip code or age. We will use the financial information that you provide to bill you for products and services that you request. By giving our site your credit card and related personal information, you are authorizing our store to give that information to the merchant and credit card company to confirm and fulfill your order. We will use contact information from the order form to fulfill your orders. We may also use contact data to get in touch with you when necessary.

These special relationships may include "powered by" partners, business partners, sponsors, and co-branded sites (referred to here as "co-branded pages"). These might include, for example, pages that share our name and that of another entity, such as a ticket sales agency. You should look for a specific privacy statement on any such co-branded page. Any personal information that you provide when signing up at one of these co-branded pages may be shared with our third party partner. You should also check our partner's web site for information regarding its privacy policies. In addition, we may share any of the information collected from you with these other non-Radio One companies on an aggregate basis. The aggregated information is not linked to any information that can identify you.
