Privacy Policy

Age restriction: You must be at least 13 years old to contact us without a parent or guardian's permission. If you are under 13 years of age, you can only contact us with your parent or guardian's permission. That's not our choice, that's federal law. If you don't like that, complain to congress. They made that law in their typical knee-jerk reaction style.

Your IP address: When visiting our website, the web server logs your Internet Protocol address (IP address) and where you came from if you clicked on link to get to us from another website (like Google, MySpace, etc.). This is a routine function of web servers. We don't permanently archive the logs, though we do look at them while they are in existence to see where people are coming from that visit our site. The logs are periodically and automatically purged by the web server using some internal web server algorithm unknown to us for deciding when to do that. It seems to us that the logs stick around for a couple months then disappear. We're not really into the technical side of it. Anyway, we don't keep them and won't unless required to do so by legal process. We wouldn't know what to do with them anyway. We make music, not statistics.

Your correspondence: If you send us a message via e-mail or using our contact form, we will probably keep it forever and ever, because we love you (well, we will keep it until we don't need to keep it anymore, but probably for a very long time). Even if you send us a message saying that you don't like us and wish we would fall off the face of the earth, we will keep it because it's better than not getting any messages. It shows that at least someone knows we're alive. If you send us a message stating that we're great and the best band on earth, we may well have it bronzed and hung on the office wall. It will go right next to those empty spots we have reserved for our platinum albums. Yes, we're that confident.

Your e-mail address: If you send us an e-mail, or use our contact form and include your e-mail address, we will keep it, and will only use it to contact you in reply to your message or to inform you of our activities. We will not sell, loan, rent or otherwise give it to any other entity not working directly with us (like our record label, publicist, management, etc.), and will require that those that use your e-mail address on our behalf respect this privacy policy and not give out your e-mail address to non-directly-affiliated parties in any way. If they do that, we will spank them and allow you to spank them too if you desire. If you receive e-mail from us and want to be removed from out list, just reply and tell us to remove you. If you prefer postal mail, send your opt-out request to Spyral Entertainment, LLC, The Misfit Toys, c/o Tim Merrill, 10234 SW 55th Lane, Gainesville, FL 32608. Either way, it shall be made so.

Notices: We may periodically update this privacy policy and it is your responsibility to check it periodically to make sure you still like it. With that said, if for some reason we lose our mind and decide to sell everyone out and profit from our billions of e-mail addresses (give or take a few billion), by selling, renting or otherwise being capitalist pigs with them, we will let you know at least 30 days in advance so you have a chance to opt out before we get rich, retire, and move to Antigua. Until that time, if you need really, really need a scam mortgage, scam college degree, scam work from home job, or placebo pharmaceutical drug or herbal remedy for ED or some other malady, let us know. We have plenty of those messages in OUR inbox that we can share without selling your e-mail address. While we will try our best to not give out or lose your personal information, we are not in a position to guarantee it will never happen. There may be things that happen beyond our control that may result in disclosure of your data. We all know that there are a lot of evil hacker types out there, among other things we can't control. Consequently, we offer no warranties or representations as regards maintenance or non-disclosure of your data. If you can't accept this, then we require that you don't give us any of your information, and if you do give us your information, you are agreeing to our terms.

Bottom line: We want to hear from you and we will do out utmost to respect your privacy, and will do our best, without any guarantees, to not let your personal contact information fall into the greedy hands of  spammers and other non-likeable entities. Shame on them.
