We Offer Great Value

In this day and age we all want to get the best value for our money when it comes to musical instruments. That’s why at Monaghan Music and Piano Centre/ we have introduced our new “Price Match Guarantee” scheme, which simply means that if you are interested in any musical instrument from us – whether it’s, a piano, a guitar or any of the other musical instruments we sell on-line – we Guarantee to either Match or Beat our Competitors Price – it’s as simple as that.

PLEASE NOTE:
The Price we Guarantee is the FULL PRICE you pay to have the instrument delivered directly to your home – including all Delivery, VAT and any additional Taxes. It is important to make sure you include these costs from any competitor when asking us for a Price Match. We’re sure you’ll agree this is one of the best Price Match schemes available if you find something we welcome your feedback.

  • We won’t be beaten on price.
  • We’ll match the product prices of key online and local competitors.

The Details:
At the time of order, we price match all local retail competitors (including their online prices).

Our Price Match Guarantee covers one price match per identical item, per customer, at the current price available to all customers.

Our Price Match Guarantee does not cover:

  • The online prices of retailers not listed.
  • Products shipped from or sold by third-party sellers (Marketplace sellers) on websites.
  • Any financing offers, bundle offers, free items, pricing errors, mail-in offers, coupon offers, items that are advertised as limited quantity, out of stock items, clearance items, open-box items, refurbished items, pre-owned items, deal of the day, daily deals, special hour sale event items, credit card offers, gift card offers, rent/lease to own items, and items for sale.

How Can I Pay
There are several ways you can pay for your internet order:

Credit Card:

When ordering, you select your type of credit card (we accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Eurocard and Diners) and we debit the sum from your credit card account for the available goods at the time of shipping.
Please note that, unfortunately, we cannot accept Maestro, Switch or Laser cards.
When paying by credit card, please always use our Secure Server which transfers encoded data.
Please note that we can only trade and invoice in Euros and our invoices will reflect the exchange rate of the day at www.oanda.com. Your credit card company may charge you a different exchange rate, and sometimes UK card companies make a small commission charge from Pound to Euro conversions.
Please check with your Card Company or bank if in doubt.
If your order is large and it is your first order by credit card, we may request proof of the card’s details – for your safety as well as ours!

PayPal:

PayPal is a popular method of payment at Monaghan Music & Pianocentre. It’s quick, easy and safe! If you haven’t got an account with Paypal already, you can set one up at www.paypal.com. The procedure is very simple!
Enter your PayPal Login and Password details when you’re ready to complete your order and confirm the total amount. Like credit card payments, we will only debit your PayPal account shortly before we ship your order. For data protection reasons it is only possible to make a PayPal payment online.
Should the total of your order exceed the initial amount you were shown online when making your order (due to extra shipping charges or higher VAT rates in your delivery destination), it’s possible to make an extra payment by PayPal. Our staff will give you further information on this with your order confirmation by email.

Please note: If you choose PayPal as payment method immediately instead of clicking on our “Go to check out”-button, the address details saved on your PayPal account will be used for your order. We therefore kindly ask you to check if the address information on your PayPal account is complete and up to date.

Bank Transfer:

You can make a SEPA transfer directly from your account holding bank. They will ask you for our IBAN and Swift/BIC Code. All this information is provided by us here at Monaghan Music & Pianocentre and will be sent to you in your order confirmation.
Some banks will apply a charge to transfer money across to us here in Ireland, so please check beforehand.
An international bank transfer takes usually 2-4 working days to arrive but you’ll see the status of your order change once the transfer has arrived

NOTE: Acceptance of payment may be dependent on the payment provider who may require security information to be entered or validation checks to be carried out as part of their secure payment system. If payment is not accepted, you will be notified of this. Please check your payment provider terms and conditions.

What About Exchange Rates If I Am Based In UK?
As we are based in Ireland, we can only trade in Euros. This means that all prices given in pounds on the website fluctuate with the markets and should be used for guidance only.

If you are paying by credit card the exchange rate of the day we take the money from your card applies, please note that we only charge your credit card shortly before the order gets shipped out.

It is possible that your credit card company applies a different, more unfavourable exchange rate, please note that this depends on the credit card company and we unfortunately have no influence on that.

Some credit card companies might also charge extra fees for international transactions, which has nothing to do with the exchange rate itself. Again we have no influence on that and cannot be held responsible, sorry!

Do I Have To Pay VAT
Deliveries within Ireland will be charged at the local Irish VAT rate.

Deliveries to EU countries will be charged at their local VAT rate (where applicable).

Due to the turnover of our company, EU law requires us to charge the local VAT rate of all EU countries.

We do not have currently a website for each EU country showing the differing prices and VAT rates. We indicate each country’s website with a flag in the top right hand corner of the web page. Should your country’s flag not be available on our website please contact our international department for more details. You may use the UK flag to make an order, however please note that these prices may vary from the total shown on your final order confirmation.

Third countries are all countries who are not a part of the EU.

Orders outside of the EU will not be charged 23% Irish VAT rate BUT orders shipped to Australia will be charged 10% GST.

Am I Liable For Import Tax
If you require your order to be shipped to a country within the EU, then the answer is no.

The total price we quote you includes the relevant local VAT rate for that country and no more taxes or import duties are necessary.

However – should you require your order to be sent to a country outside the EU then the Irish VAT will be excluded and the receiver of the goods will be responsible for paying the necessary VAT, import and customs duties upon arrival in that country.

Should you have any further questions about this, please get in touch with our Export team who would be happy to help you further – info@pianocentre.com

We do not provide any EUR.1 forms

Information For Non EU Countries
Customs and import charges for non EU countries
For deliveries from Ireland to countries outside the European Union customs or import charges are to be paid upon arrival of the shipment in the country of destination.

This is over and above the standard import duties. Charges for customs clearance (and its handling, e.g. by a forwarding agency) have to be paid for by the customer. We do not have any influence on these charges and cannot predict the amount. The customs regulations vary significantly from country to country.

If you would like more information about this please contact your local customs office. Please note that you, as an importer, have to adhere to the regulations of the country in question.

Can I Have The Goods Sent To A Different Address
We include a separate field on our online ordering form to enable you to receive your order at a different delivery address. This may be for example, your work address or a friend or relative’s address, if you know you will not be at home to receive the parcel.

Please instruct the recipient to check the parcel carefully for any signs of damage or tampering before signing for the parcel.

If you require your order to be sent to a different country, then please note we are obliged to charge the VAT of the country of destination. If you have any further questions regarding this, please contact our Sales Team – sales@pianocentre.com

Are All Products Checked Before Being Delivered
When we receive deliveries from our suppliers we check all cardboard packaging materials for shipping or packaging mistakes.

From experience, we know that our customers prefer closed original boxes rather than opened and tested goods.

Sometimes we add English manuals to the boxes, but in most cases, the equipment goes through us without being opened.

Guitars and some other acoustic instruments like violins and double basses are an exception – before being shipped they are quality controlled by our qualified experts or by the manufacturer to make sure that you´ll get a perfect instrument. Final personal adjustments are naturally left to you.

If you receive equipment which is in the original packaging but not in “factory-fresh” condition it might be a product to which we have added a manual or a product which had been returned by another customer within the scope of our money-back guarantee (a B stock product)

B stock products are always checked by us to ensure they are complete and working. We assure you that they are free from defects and you get the same warranty as a brand new item.

You can always exchange a B stock product within 30 days after the purchase should you decide you would rather have a brand new item.

Are Goods Insured During Transport
Yes, all shipments are fully insured during transport!

Please check all parcels when you receive them.
We pack the products carefully, but transport damages cannot be ruled out. If you notice any problem inform the carrier right away and insist on getting a written damage report or refuse the parcel if this report is not supplied.

Damage reports need to be filed within 24 hours and they are the only way to file an insurance claim for the damages.

After receiving the damage report, please contact our customer service +353 47 89232 or info@pianocentre.com to organize a replacement.

30-Day Money-Back Guarantee
So you thought a particular product was the right one for you, and then you discover it’s not. Well, that’s life.

But no problem! We grant a 30-Day Money-Back Guarantee on any item you buy at Monaghan Music & Pianocentre. Even as a commercial customer we offer you full 30 Days Money-Back – no hassles, no questions asked!

Only exceptions are products specially made or modified for you (e. g. custom cases), items that are subject to wear and tear or products that cannot be taken back due to regulations of hygiene (e.g. used reeds for woodwinds) or licensing (e. g. already registered software).

If you’re not completely satisfied, please contact us, and we’ll arrange a return service.

Simply fill out the online “return product” form in the customer center. You will then receive all necessary information for the return shipment.

Please ensure that all products are returned in their original packaging, with all components and accessories and without signs of use.

Of course we still receive return wishes via E-Mail or telephone.

These conditions apply for our Money-Back Guarantee. Conditions for the legal right of revocation as well as our warranty service can be found in our Terms and Conditions.

Product must be returned in its original condition.

Warranty

All products carry a 1 year warranty unless otherwise stated. If items become defective due to manufacture fault within six months of purchase then the vendor will arrange for the collection and repair of the product entirely at the vendors cost. If the product can not be repaired within 60 days, then a replacement product will be issued, which will not be older and not be in worse condition than original product returned by the purchaser. If the item becomes defective within the warranty period, but after six months from the date of delivery, then the same conditions as above apply but the customer will be responsible for the cost of returning the product to the vendor. Products may not be returned to the Vendor for refund later than 28 days from delivery unless the vendor is unable to comply with its warranty obligations. This warranty excludes items that have become defective due to miss use, accidental damage or any reason other than manufacture fault. If an item is found to be without fault on its return to Monaghan Music & Piano Centre, and is out of the period of 28 day money back guarantee, then we will return the item to you for a small charge. We recommend that you insure your goods.

The Monaghan Music & Piano Centre extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than our standard warranty or free warranties offered by other retailers and manufacturers.

The extended warranty are given to the following products:

  • All new Digital Pianos come with a one year, limited warranty. The limited warranty for Digital Pianos can be extended to up to five years if the end-user registers their product with the manufacturing company (Yamaha, Roland etc.) within 90 days of purchase. Only registrations completed within 90 days of the purchase date will qualify for the extended cover. Only products bought within Ireland / Northern Ireland from an authorised dealer can be registered within Ireland / Northern Ireland. If the customer purchased outside of Ireland / Northern Ireland or from a non-authorised dealer, please address any warranty claims with the dealer or the distributor of the company in that country.
  • All new and used Japanese upright and grand pianos come with a five year limited warranty.
  • All older second-hand upright and grand pianos come with a one year limited warranty.

Piano Tuning
pianocentre-piano-tunning

Tune Your Piano Regularly

Piano Tuning is the most essential regularly-scheduled form of piano maintenance.
Tuning is a process which alters the pitch of the piano. We use tuning as means to positively change intonation to best suit our standard of equal temperament and compliment the diatonic scale. Tuning restores the balance of the piano by returning it to the standard pitch for which it was designed. Regular tuning in equal temperament allows the piano to sound well in in any chosen key.

Piano tuning involves the physical manipulation and movement of approximately 236 tuning pins altering the tension of the wire which is attached to each tuning pin, in order to change the pitch, either higher (sharp) or lower (flat). Each note is “set” at a place which provides for the distribution of frequencies and beat rates that we find most pleasing to our ears. Piano tuning is an art in itself and takes many years to develop the knowledge, skills and proficiencies necessary for artistic tunings. The overall skills needed for aural tuning require exhaustive practice, patience and dedication.

Piano tuning in Ireland on a regular basis is especially important due to seasonal changes and frequent swings in temperature and humidity levels.

F.A.Q. How often should I have my piano tuned:
Most pianos should be tuned twice yearly. Many of our clients have their pianos tuned much more frequently. Recording studios, concert halls, performances venues, bars and clubs, some schools and fine pianists often request tuning on a more frequents basis, as these instruments are in constant use. Most pianos should be tuned twice a year. If that can be done in accordance with seasonal changes, all the better.

Why does my piano go out of tune?
Pianos go out of tune for a variety of reasons. Pianos are sensitive to climate change, temperature and humidity levels. When moisture levels increase (such as during summer months) pianos often go sharp in pitch. This is because the strings are stretched from the tuning pin at the front of the piano to a hitch pin on the rigid cast iron plate or frame. Each string passes over a bridge (either treble or bass) and makes its connection to the soundboard via the bridge. When the moisture content of the soundboard increases, the board rises in reaction because it has absorbed ambient moisture from the air. Pitch rises or becomes sharp as the strings are tensioned by the enlarged soundboard, which has a diaphragmatic shape. The opposite is true when moisture levels decrease such as during winter months as moisture leaves the soundboard. Pitch drops (or goes flat) as strings relax due to shrinkage of the soundboard profile.

Pianos also go out of tune from frequent or hard playing as piano hammers impact the strings directly. Piano wire does also stretch for several years due to elasticity of the wire. Over time it becomes more brittle and no longer stretches noticeably.

Pianos also go out of tune when the pinblock (wood, usually a thick maple block under the tuning pins) becomes weak over time and loses the ability to hold a necessary amount of torque at the tuning pins to prevent slipping. A common reason for piano rebuilding is the inability of the piano to stay in tune because of a pinblock failure.

Piano Restoration
Piano Restoration Services

Started by Niall McLean, Monaghan Music and Piano Centre has been providing piano restoration services for over 30 years now. Specializing in tuning, restoration and sales advice, we are the place for all your piano needs and questions. Just one conversation about your Piano will confirm to you our deep understanding of your instrument and what we’ll do to restore its tone and playability.

Whether you’re looking to purchase a newly restored piano, or to have your own vintage piano refurbished, you can depend on our experienced craftsmanship. But it’s not just the many years of experience that instills trust, it’s confidence that the job will be done right to your special needs, your budget and your timing.

We at Monaghan Music and Piano Centre, consider each piano an individual work of art and use only the highest quality parts because we’re committed to restoring your piano to original specifications. Many hours of detailed work go into the restoration process to ensure superior results because our goal is to deliver a magnificent instrument that will give you a lifetime of joy and happiness. Your beautifully restored piano will look and sound just like it did when it was brand new, or even better.

Restoration Procedures Include:
Belly: Soundboard repair or replacement, new custom pinblock fitting and boring, damper felting, tuning pins and custom string replacement. Our soundboards either new or restored are varnished with high quality custom varnish and hand rubbed to bring out a beautiful patina. The plate or harp is artistically gilded with a proprietary gold finish over an epoxy primer base and final-finished in clear acrylic. Hand lettering of the embossed letters of the plate completes this process.

Cabinet: Repair and complete professional refinishing. We hand strip each piano and every part separately. In our shop there is no dipping or soaking of parts. Hand and machine sanding follow in preparation for custom stain or ebony finish. Veneer and case damages of all kinds are carefully repaired prior to staining. The finishing procedure includes application of wood grain filler, stain, sealer and fine lacquer coats. Our final finish is hand rubbed and known in the industry as a classic “piano finish”.

Keyboard and Action: Key recovering, ivory repair, keyframe felting and custom replacement of action parts including: wippens (repetitions), hammers, hammer shanks and flanges.

Regulation & Voicing: Each piano is put through the process of preliminary, intermediate and final regulation and voicing. These are painstaking adjustments to each action part and hammer in order to realize the full potential of the piano as a musical instrument. Complete action regulation is a process that involves cleaning and bedding the keyframe, minimizing friction, establishing a best key height and key travel (dip), key squaring and spacing, hammer blow distance, alignment and vertical travel of all components of the wippen and hammer assemblies, hammer shape and density, adjustments of the repetition lever, jack, repetition spring, back check, let off, drop and after-touch assessment. Damper regulation and timing is also a component of this cyclical process.

From simple reconditioning to complete restoration, let us help you enjoy your cherished piano for another generation.

Social Media Warning (Divulgence of Personal & Private Information)

Social media has provided a platform for internet users to disclose much personal information about themselves, in a way that seems innocuous, if not proper and expected. However, more than a few folks have already lived to regret personal information that was shared either by them or others. This has long been true of simple email. It is exponentially true of social websites and applications for social media on any other website, including this one. You are cautioned against carelessly disclosing information.

3. Indemnification.

You agree to indemnify, defend and hold harmless our Monaghan Music & Pianocentre website, its members, officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, suppliers and any third party information providers to our website from and against all losses, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, resulting from any use of our website or violation of this Agreement (including negligent or wrongful conduct) by you or any other person accessing our website.

4. Third Party Rights.

The provisions of paragraphs 2 (Use of the Service), and 3 (Indemnification) are for the benefit of our website and its owners, officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, suppliers, and any third party information providers to the Service. Each of these individuals or entities shall have the right to assert and enforce those provisions directly against you on its/their own behalf.

5.Term; Termination.

We reserve the right to investigate complaints or reported violations of these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use and to take any action we deem appropriate, including but not limited to reporting any suspected unlawful activity to law enforcement officials, regulators, or other third parties and disclosing any data necessary or appropriate to such persons or entities relating to your profile, email addresses, usage history, IP addresses and traffic data.

This Agreement, in whole or in part, may be terminated by Monaghan Music & Pianocentre without notice at any time for any reason. The provisions of paragraphs 1 (Copyright, Licenses and Idea Submissions), 2 (Use of the Service), 3 (Indemnification), 4 (Third Party Rights), 6 (Hiring an Attorney / No Attorney-Client Relationship), and 7 (Miscellaneous) shall survive any termination of this Agreement, in whole or in part.

6.Hiring an Investment Advisor, Attorney, or Medical or Other Professional / No Attorney-Client Relationship or Fiduciary Capacity.

Choosing a lawyer, doctor, or investment advisor is a serious matter and should NOT be based solely on data contained on our website or in advertisements.

The law is constantly changing and the data may not be complete or accurate depending on your particular legal issue. Each legal issue depends on its individual facts and different jurisdictions have different laws and regulations. This is why you should seriously consider hiring licensed, professional counsel in your jurisdiction.

Medical issues are complex, and can often stem from both organic and psychological factors. Never should a website be used as a source of diagnosing or treating medical problems.

Financial matters are highly individualistic. Risk tolerance is just one factor to consider before making any investments or financial decisions. For these, and other, reasons, you should look to the guidance of a trained professional, not a website.

You may send us email, but in no instance will this communication in any way be construed as initiating an attorney-client relationship, or other professional relationship, and so the contact should not include confidential or sensitive data because your communication will not be treated as privileged or confidential.

7.Miscellaneous.

Governing Law

This Agreement shall treated as though executed, set in force, and performed in the State of Ireland. Accordingly, it shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of Ireland in terms of those applicable to agreements, without regard to conflict of law principles.

Any legal claim arising out of or relating to these Terms of Service and Conditions of Use or our website, excluding intellectual property right infringement and other claims by us, shall be settled confidentially through mandatory binding arbitration per the American Arbitration Association commercial arbitration rules. The arbitration shall be conducted in Ireland. Each party shall bear one half of the arbitration fees and costs incurred, and each party shall bear its own lawyer fees. All claims shall be arbitrated on an individual basis, and shall not be consolidated in any arbitration with any claim or controversy of any other party.

Modification

Neither the course of conduct between the parties nor industry trade practice shall act to modify any provision of this Agreement.

Assignability

Our website may assign its rights and duties under this Agreement to any party at any time without notice to you.

Information For Non EU Countries
Customs and import charges for non EU countries
For deliveries from Ireland to countries outside the European Union customs or import charges are to be paid upon arrival of the shipment in the country of destination.

This is over and above the standard import duties. Charges for customs clearance (and its handling, e.g. by a forwarding agency) have to be paid for by the customer. We do not have any influence on these charges and cannot predict the amount. The customs regulations vary significantly from country to country.

If you would like more information about this please contact your local customs office. Please note that you, as an importer, have to adhere to the regulations of the country in question.

Social Media Disclaimer
The following describes the Social Media Disclosure for our Monaghan Music & Pianocentre website.

Social Media Issue

We live in an interesting time when privacy rights are championed alongside an unprecedented voluntary willingness of people to share their most intimate and superfluous life details with the world, even in places such as our Monaghan Music & Pianocentre website. While apparently benign on the surface, the dangers of unrestrained public disclosure of sensitive information is beginning to surface.

Key social media players are being sued for unauthorized or abusive use/misuse of personal information. Failure to protect and warn are likely going to be focal factors. Lawsuits are filed seeking damages for statements held to be responsible for people’s death or suicide. Bloggers presuming to operate under an unfettered freedom of speech or greater latitude offered to members of the press are losing civil cases for defamation, slander, libel, and so on.

As social media rapidly advances to allow more technologically sophisticated and easy dissemination, the simultaneous fallout of revelation without boundaries is mounting. Thus, a sober approach to the benefits of social media, while sidestepping the perils of imprudent disclosure, can facilitate an enjoyable online experience, without the consequences of excess, in settings such as our own Monaghan Music & Pianocentre website.

Presence/Scope of Social Media

You should assume that social media is in use on our Monaghan Music & Pianocentre website. A simple click of a button to endorse a person, product, or service is building a cumulative profile about you, which you should always assume can be discovered by others. Attempting to share a website with someone, whether by direct press of a button or else by email forwarding facilitated on a website, you should assume that this may not stop with the intended recipient and that this can generate information about you that could be seen by a veritable infinite number of people. Such a domino effect could initiate right here on our Monaghan Music & Pianocentre website.

Something as simple as a blog comment provides the opportunity for knee-jerk reactions that can become public and may not truly represent a position (at least in strength or severity) that you might hold after a period of more reasoned contemplation. You should also note that the ease of accessing one site through the login credentials of another, or the use of a global login for access to multiple sites can accumulate a dossier on you and your online behaviour that may reveal more information to unintended parties than you might realize or want. Any or all of these features could exist on our Monaghan Music & Pianocentre website at one time or another.

These few examples illustrate some possible ways that social media can exist, though it is not an exhaustive list and new technologies will render this list outdated quickly. The objective is to realize the reach of social media, its widespread presence on websites in various forms (including this website), and develop a responsible approach to using it.

Protecting Others

You should recognize the fact that divulgences made in and on social media platforms on this website and others are rarely constrained just to you. Disclosures are commonly made about group matters that necessarily affect and impact other people. Other disclosures are expressly about third parties, sometimes with little discretion. What can appear funny in one moment can be tragic in the next. And a subtle “public” retaliation can have lifetime repercussions.

Ideal use of social media on our website would confine your disclosures primarily to matters pertaining to you, not others. If in doubt, it’s best to err on the side of non-disclosure. It’s doubtful the disclosure is so meaningful that it cannot be offset by the precaution of acting to protect the best interests of someone who is involuntarily being exposed by your decision to disclose something on our Monaghan Music & Pianocentre website (or another).

Protecting Yourself

You should likewise pause to consider the long-term effects of a split-second decision to publicly share private information about yourself on our Monaghan Music & Pianocentre website. Opinions, likes, dislikes, preferences, and otherwise can change. Openly divulging perspectives that you hold today, may conflict with your developing views into the futures. Yet, the “new you” will always stand juxtaposed against the prior declarations you made that are now concretized as part of your public profile. While the contents of your breakfast may hold little long-term impact, other data likewise readily shared can have consequences that could conceivably impact your ability to obtain certain employment or hinder other life experiences and ambitions.

As with sharing information about other people, extreme caution should be used before revealing information about yourself. If in doubt, it’s likely best not to do it. The short term gain, if any, could readily be outweighed by later consequences. Finally, you should note that we are not responsible for removing content once shared, and we may not be able to do so.

Restrictions on Use of Social Media Data

You, as a visitor to our Monaghan Music & Pianocentre website, are not permitted to “mine” social media or other platforms contained herein for personal information related to others. Even where people have publicly displayed data, you should not construe that as though you have the liberty to capture, reproduce, or reuse that information. Any use of social media or related platforms on our website are for interactive use only, relevant only during the website visit.

Accuracy of Social Media Data

As any social media platform is built on user-generated content, you should consider this fact in seeking to determine the authenticity of anything you read. We are not responsible for verifying any user-generated content for accuracy. A best practices policy would be to view all such content as strictly opinion, not fact.

Potential Issues of Liability

You should also be mindful of the fact that your words could trigger liability for harm caused to others. While you have the right to free speech, you do not have the right to damage other people. Under basic principles of tort law, you are always responsible, personally, for situations where either:

1. you were required to act, but did not (i.e. – some “duty of care”)
2. your were required to refrain from acting, but did not (i.e. – slander, defamation, etc.)

These “sins of omission and commission” could cause problems for you, irrespective of whether you assert you are conducting business under the guise of one or more business entities. Illegal and unethical conduct, when done in the name of a corporation or LLC, is still illegal and unethical conduct. As it is rarely part of a business plan to engage in illegal and unethical conduct, you are doubtfully operating in any official capacity, but rather, perhaps, leveraging that capacity to effectuate personal wrongdoing. You should consult a licensed attorney if you wish legal advice as to the (potential) ramification of your situation or legal problems stemming from this website or another.

CHANGE NOTICE: As with any of our administrative and legal notice pages, the contents of this page can and will change over time. Accordingly, this page could read differently as of your very next visit. These changes are necessitated, and carried out by Monaghan Music & Pianocentre, in order to protect you and our Monaghan Music & Pianocentre website. If this page is important to you, you should check back frequently as no other notice of changed content will be provided either before or after the change takes effect.

When visiting our website, the IP address used to access our website may be logged along with the dates and times of access. This information is purely used to analyze trends, administer our website, track users movement, and gather broad demographic information for internal use such as statistical assessments and website improvement. Most importantly, any recorded IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Other information may be collected as well, which is rather typical of most websites. For instance, the source that referred you to our website is generally known. Likewise, your duration on our website, and your destination when you leave our website can also be tracked. Other common data collected includes the type of operating system the computer you are using to access our website has. Similarly, the type of web browser is often noted. Again, this is common data collection, and helps ultimately produce a better end-user experience.

Cookies are another common internet practice. Cookies are a key means of improving user experience by allows us to customize your use of our website. Simple information is transferred to your computer to allow the content and experience to reflect your actions, preferences, and so on. You should simply make the assumption our website uses cookies, and note that you are free to make adjustments in your web browser to disable these or otherwise receive notification of cookies so you can take whatever desired action you so choose. Please understand that refusing cookies may cripple some of our website features and render some aspects useless to you.

At times, you will be fully aware of information received, as you are the direct source providing it. For instance, you may comment on a blog post, reply to an email (whether broadcast message or autoresponder), provide an email address, complete a survey, requests SMS, or otherwise. Likewise, purchases necessarily involve collecting certain information, such as credit card information, Paypal addresses, your physical address for billing and/or shipping, phone number, and so on. Refusing to provide some of this information may lead to us being unable to provide you with the products or services you’ve requested.

A prime example of limited access to our website is where content may be protected by a username and password. Whether a username and password is generated by our website, or created by you, these will almost always be connected with some other information related to or connected with you. This is true since much content that is protected on the internet is subscription based, often paid for. Thus, the username and password must necessarily be tied to your other account data. Usernames and passwords, by their very nature, should be kept private.

Handling of Personal Information

Note that any personal information you provide to others apart from us or our vendors is wholly optional. As an example, you might disclose something in a blog post comment. That “private” information is now “public,” and we have no control over that. In like fashion, you sharing information with any other third party not functioning as a service provider to us puts that information beyond our control and becomes subject to the policy that party has in place.

Our primary intention for collecting personal and private information from you is simply to conduct our business. We can use this internally to better serve you. Accordingly, we see no reason to share your personal information to other parties and outside interests unless you have authorized us to do so.

Of course, there are instances where your information is stored with third party service providers, such as email service providers, as they provide services that are industry-leading in quality and security and are far more beneficial to our end user than attempting such services “in-house.” However, you are never required to deal with any such third party directly, they are limited in how they use your information, and they cannot sell or transfer it to others in any way.

However, of course, your information does comprise part of an overall whole. This aggregate of information, by contrast, may be used to understand our overall user base. Further, we may share this information about our website visitors as a whole, not individually, with third parties for various purposes, in our sole discretion.

While we are staunch privacy advocates, there are times when even we may be forced to abandon these ideals. Just as major search engines face ongoing compulsion to provide data against their will, so too may the same occur with our website. Illegal activity or other serious acts or allegations could create legal liability for our website. In those cases, we reserve the right to share your information, or else may simply be compelled to do so by law.

On the other hand, there may be times when we would need to share your private information in order to protect our own interests. For instance, in cases of suspected or alleged copyright infringement or other intellectual property violations, it may be necessary to share personal information.

Comments Policy

As you know, Web 2.0 is all about the conversation. But without a few simple ground rules, that conversation can turn into a shouting match that discourages others from entering into the fray.

So here is Monaghan Music & Pianocentre comments policy. By posting on my blog, you agree to the following:

You may comment without registering. You can log-in via Disqus, OpenID, Twitter, Facebook—or not at all. It’s up to you. You may post anonymously. I don’t recommend this, but you may do so if you wish. I may change this rule if it is abused.

You may post follow-up questions. If you have a question, chances are you are not alone. Others are likely thinking similarly. Therefore, I would rather receive your comments on Monaghan Music & Pianocentre than via email. It is a better use of my time to address everyone at once rather than answer several similar emails.

You may disagree with me. I welcome debate. However, I ask that if you disagree with me—or anyone else, for that matter—do so in a way that is respectful. In my opinion, there is way too much shouting in the public square to tolerate it here.

Monaghan Music & Pianocentre reserves the right to delete your comments. This is my blog. I don’t have an obligation to publish your comments. The First Amendment gives you the right to express your opinions on your blog not mine.

Specifically, I will delete your comments if you post something that is, in my sole opinion, (a)snarky; (b) off-topic; (c) libelous, defamatory, abusive, harassing, threatening, profane, pornographic, offensive, false, misleading, or which otherwise violates or encourages others to violate my sense of decorum and civility or any law, including intellectual property laws; or (d) “spam,” i.e., an attempt to advertise, solicit, or otherwise promote goods and services. You may, however, post a link to your site or your most recent blog post.

You retain ownership of your comments. I do not own them and I expressly disclaim any and all liability that may result from them. By commenting on my site, you agree that you retain all ownership rights in what you post here and that you will relieve me from any and all liability that may result from those postings.

You grant Monaghan Music & Pianocentre a license to post your comments. This license is worldwide, irrevocable, non-exclusive, and royalty-free. You grant me the right to store, use, transmit, display, publish, reproduce, and distribute your comments in any format, including but not limited to a blog, in a book, a video, or presentation.

In short, my goal is to host interesting conversations with caring, honest, and respectful people. I believe this simple comments policy will facilitate this.

Anti-Spam Policy
The following describes the Anti-Spam Policy for our Monaghan Music & Pianocentre website.

What Is Spam?

Spam is unsolicited email, also known as junk mail (received via email), or UCE (Unsolicited Commercial Email). Virtually all of us have opened the inbox of an email account and found emails from an unknown sender. By sending email only to those who have requested to receive it, we at Monaghan Music & Pianocentre are following accepted permission-based email guidelines.

What About The Laws Against Spam?

They exist. However, as with any body of laws, any individual State spam statutes can and will vary. The spam laws of each State can not only vary, but also have different definitions of unsolicited commercial email. Additionally, there may be various federal agencies keeping track of spam, including the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). At the Federal level, the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 promulgates some attempt at a coherent and unified approach to unsolicited commercial email. Ultimately, it would be difficult to enforce spam law violations on any consistent or pervasive basis, so your own vigilance is your own best first line of defense. Beyond that, we protect you by ensuring that you are 100% in control of whether or not you ever hear from Monaghan Music & Pianocentre by email initially or in the future, as detailed in our “No Tolerance” policy below.

Our No Tolerance Anti-Spam Policy

WE HAVE A NO TOLERANCE SPAM POLICY. We do not email unless someone has filled out an “opt in” form or “webform” expressing an interest in our information or products and/or services, or otherwise directly and proactively requesting it. News of the features and benefits of Membership is spread through advertising, joint venture marketing, and word of mouth, so we are only building relationship with folks who wish to learn more about what we have to offer and willingly subscribe to our content and contact through email. You are always completely in control of whether you receive email communication from Monaghan Music & Pianocentre, and can terminate at any time.

NOTE – Every auto-generated email contains a mandatory unsubscribe link that cannot be removed. Therefore, each communication generated by Monaghan Music & Pianocentre carries with it the option to “unsubscribe” and never receive another email communication from Monaghan Music & Pianocentre.

CHANGE NOTICE: As with any of our administrative and legal notice pages, the contents of this page can and will change over time. Accordingly, this page could read differently as of your very next visit. These changes are necessitated, and carried out by Monaghan Music & Pianocentre, in order to protect you and our Monaghan Music & Pianocentre website. If this page is important to you, you should check back frequently as no other notice of changed content will be provided either before or after the change takes effect.
