Our Cookies Policy is provided to comply with new legislation that comes into force in 2018. It’s rather important and sadly, somewhat dry and unexciting. It does however give you the facts you might need if you are looking into how we use cookies.

Introduction

The David Cross Band website uses cookies.

We will ask you to consent to our use of cookies in accordance with the terms of this policy when you first visit our website. If you give consent, then cookies will be stored on your device.

Our Cookie Notification

When you first visit our website, you will be asked to agree to the use of cookies – this is an explicit opt-in policy. To do this, click the “I’m okay with this” button.

You can manage your preferences by using the “More Info” button which will direct you to a website providing help to change your cookie settings, should you need to.

About cookies

A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to your web browser and is stored by your web browser. The next time (and subsequent times) that you visit the website, the web server asks your browser for cookie(s) that it stored earlier and, if the cookie is present, it is then sent back to the server. The server then recognizes the connection as one that has been made on an earlier occasion and can provide relevant information based on the content of the cookie. It is the website’s way to ask you, automatically, ‘have you been here before’; if you have, then the server will act accordingly.

Types of Cookie

Cookies may be either "persistent" cookies or " session" cookies and all cookies have an expiry date and time feature.

a) persistent cookies will be stored by your web browser and will remain on your device (computer) until the cookie’s expiry date, unless the cookie is deleted by you before the expiry date;

b) a session cookie, on the other hand, will be stored by your web browser and will expire at the end of your session, such as when you log out of the website or when the web browser is closed.

Cookies do not typically contain any information that personally identifies you, but other personal information that we store about you may be linked to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

Does the David Cross Band website perform such links?

No. We have no desire or need to link information from cookies to other information that we might hold about you elsewhere in our business.

Do Third Parties perform such links?

Cookies can be used by third party web servers to identify and track you and other users as you/they navigate the different pages on a website and can then identify users returning to a website. This is an automated process.

Cookies that we use
