Dusty Groove Privacy & Security Policy

Your Privacy

We respect your privacy and do not tolerate spam. We will not rent or sell your name, address, email address, credit card information or any other personal information to anyone, unless legally required to do so.

We do not share browsing or buying patterns with any third parties or other companies.

We do not participate in advertising networks and do not track searches or product browsing across multiple websites. We may obtain information about customers from other sources to verify name, address and/or contact information.

We do not use any advertising on the Dusty Groove website. We do use Google Adwords on sites other than our own. We track inbound paid advertising referrals to improve our advertising performance.

We provide a Share button on some of our web pages. Clicking the share button will display buttons for Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest which may provide a personalized social media experience on those sites.

We display your recently viewed items on certain pages for ease of navigation. The website formulates the "Suggested Titles" page by looking at a customer's order history, cart, watch list, and viewing history to create a list of titles that appear to have interested the customer in the past. Those titles are supplied to the recommendation lookup scheme to create a personalized list of suggested titles. The information that is used to create this list is available on the customer's account page and was provided by the customer. No personalized data is used that cannot be found on the customer's account page.

When an account is created on the Dusty Groove website we send notifications regarding account activity, orders, and occasional special announcements. Customers may subscribe to or opt out of receiving newsletters and special announcements at any time.

Deleting Your Account

You have the right to access personal information we hold about your and to request that your account and any personal information be deleted. If your would like to exercise this right, or if you have any additional questions about your information or our policies, please contact us at


Dusty Groove uses the latest encryption technology to protect credit card and other personal information. All pages are served and all transactions, such as account creating and order placement, are conducted using secure HTTP connections (TLS 1.2, the successor to SSL). This protocol encrypts all of the information send to us, including credit card numbers, names, addresses and phone numbers, so that this information cannot be hacked or intercepted by anyone on the internet.

Private browsing, or "incognito mode", is supported by Dusty Groove and encouraged where appropriate.


"Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser. We do not store any personal information in cookies, but we use them to identify customer accounts, manage orders, and maintain website preferences while shopping. We do not track user activity across other websites and do not use cookies to share profile information with third-party marketers. We will never give or sell personal information to anyone.

Changes to Our Policy

Our Policy is intended to provide you with the safest and most secure shopping experience possible.

Since technologies change, we reserve the right to modify, add, or remove portions of our Privacy Policy. Please periodically review this page for changes. This policy is effective from June 2018.
