Note to journalists, experts and PR Professionals

Note to Journalists, Experts and PR Professionals: News and journalism are public activities. Your name, business contact details, and professional interests and affiliations may well already be publicly available, particularly if you are a journalist, a recognized expert, or a PR professional. We have created this Privacy Policy to inform you how we collect and process your personal information, and how we comply with our obligations to look after that information, and what your rights are. 

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully to understand how we will treat your information before you start to use our Websites or communicate with us.

Guidelines

 

Publisher Guidelines:

Your music press release provides RSS feeds for both public consumption and to third-party publishers for redistribution on Websites and Blogs.

We also offer the possibility to download press releases as pdf. 

Feed Usage Guidelines:

If you use these feeds on your site please minimize the number of times you pull them.  Because we update our feeds in real time, there is a connection between feeds pulled and bandwidth charges.  We recommend that high traffic sites use an RSS or RDF solution rather than Javascript.  Additionally, we reserve the right in our absolute discretion, to block or limit access to our feeds.
