Terms & Conditions and Privacy Policy

1 - Terms

By accessing the website at www.stevedanyew.com (“The Website”) owned by Steve Danyew (“The Composer”), you are agreeing to be bound by these terms of service, all applicable laws and regulations, and agree that you are responsible for compliance with any applicable local laws. If you do not agree with any of these terms, including the privacy policy, you are prohibited from using or accessing this site. The materials contained in this website are protected by applicable copyright and trademark law.

2 - Purchasing Sheet Music

You as the customer are purchasing copies of sheet music for the exclusive use of live performance in a musical concert.  When you purchase sheet music you are not purchasing the copyright or ownership of the music.  The Composer retains copyright and ownership of the music.  You do not have the right to copy the music, forward electronic or printed copies of music to others, sub-license, assign, transfer and/or sell the music to anyone.  Through your use of the Website, no employment relationship or partnership exists between you and the Composer.

Music is purchased for the exclusive use of an institution (university, high school, church, etc.), performing ensemble, or individual, and copies of the music cannot be shared with, or used for performances with other institutions or ensembles. (Example: You cannot purchase a concert band piece for your high school and use the music with your high school band and also with a band from another school.)

Electronic PDF files may be printed according to the license that comes with the piece.  If no specific license is provided, the PDF file may be printed as many times as needed, for the exclusive use of the purchasing institution or ensemble.  The PDF file and copies of the music cannot be shared.

Sales and licenses shall be governed by the copyright laws of the United States of America, whether the music is supplied and/or used in the USA or any part of the world.

Please contact the Composer for any other use of the sheet music other than performing the music at a concert.  All other uses may require special licenses or permissions.

11 - Privacy Policy

Protection of Your Personal Information

Any information collected on this site will never be sold or shared with third parties. The Composer does not collect any personal identifying information (e.g. name and email address) through this website except when you specifically and intentionally provide the information (for instance, when you submit a contact form inquiry, or submit an order through the Store). Any information you share is used for the stated purpose only.

  • When you submit a sheet music order, your contact information is used to communicate with you regarding the order and deliver the sheet music. When ordering, you also have the option to be added to the email list for occasional emails regarding new compositions and news. You can unsubscribe from the email list at any time.
  • When you submit a contact inquiry via the contact page, your information is used to respond to your contact inquiry.  If you indicate that you would like to be added to the email list, you will be added. You can unsubscribe from the email list at any time.  
  • The email list is managed through Mail Chimp (see their privacy policy and terms of use). 
  • This website is hosted through Square Space. Orders and contact inquiries are emailed to the Composer and stored in a Google spreadsheet. We will protect personal information by using reasonable security safeguards against loss or theft, as well as unauthorized access, disclosure, copying, use or modification.

The Website may use "cookies" and similar technologies to collect basic information about your computer and its connection to the Internet (e.g. the name of the domain from which you access the Internet, the date and time you access the website, etc.). This generic information is used only for statistical purposes to aid site growth and ongoing maintenance.

This website contains links to other websites, but the Composer is not responsible for the privacy policies of third party websites. 

Orders Submitted through the Store

When you submit an order through the Store (https://stevedanyew.com/store), you are not providing credit card information to the Composer or the Website. The Store is essentially an order form, where you enter your contact information and the sheet music you would like to purchase.  If you prefer to pay via check, you are emailed an invoice.  If you prefer to pay via credit card, you are emailed a PayPal link which will open an electronic invoice on the PayPal website. This PayPal invoice will allow you to pay for your order via credit card, but credit card information is processed through PayPal (see Paypal's privacy policy here), not through the Website or the Composer.  At no time is your credit card information entered on the Website or transmitted to the Composer.  The Composer is not responsible for the security or privacy of information you input in the PayPal credit card invoice.

The Composer may change this privacy policy from time to time at the Composer’s sole discretion.
