|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.
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.
