By using our website and providing us information, you are acknowledging you have read and agree to this Privacy Policy.


You are prohibited from using this site if you are under the age of 13. We do not intentionally or knowingly accept information from anyone under 13 years of age.

JATB helps to spread the joy, passion and excitement of America's truly original classic music. In furtherance of our business mission and goals, we collect two types of information through the website– personal and non-personal. Non-personal information is, like it sounds, information which does not identify you personally. We use this nonpersonal information for a variety of business reasons, including to help us learn more about our site and our visitors generally, and to monitor the performance of the site.






We automatically record information ("Log and Usage Data") created by your use of the Service, which again helps us to improve our service. Log and Usage Data collected from the website may include information such as your IP address, browser type, the referring domain (which tells us where you came from to access JATB and helps us understand how you found our service), pages visited, and access times.




Some of the non-personal information is collected through the use of cookies and/or pixel tags. Cookies are small data files containing information about the user that are stored on the user’s hard drive. You can delete and/or disable these cookies at any time through your internet controls on your computer. Some cookies are used to make login to our site easier (such as by remembering usernames and passwords). Cookies can also help us to understand what pages on our site you access and how long you stay. If you disable cookies and/or delete session cookies, your use of our site may be affected and some of the features of the site may not function properly. Pixel tags are small data files on the website that anonymously record your activities on the site for marketing purposes (for instance, if you start to sign up and then change your mind). It helps us to evaluate the effectiveness of the website.




Personal information is that information that can identify you personally. This includes information such as your name, your address, information about you, videos, essays, pictures, and your e-mail address. You might provide us this information to inquire about upcoming events, to donate to our organization, to join our mailing list, to buy season tickets or to apply for a scholarship opportunity.
