Cookie Policy

 The Music Link is owned and operated by The Music Link Corporation (“The Music Link”, “we”, “us”, and “our”). This Cookie Policy explains how we use cookies and similar technologies in the course of our business, including through our websites that link to this Cookie Policy, such as https://www.themusiclink.net, https://www.recordingking.com, and https://www.theloar.com, or any website owned, operated, or controlled by us (collectively, “Websites” or “websites”). It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them. This Cookie Policy is and will be treated as part of our Privacy Policy, and is automatically incorporated therein.

 In some cases we may use cookies and other tracking technologies described in this Cookie Statement to collect Device Information, or to collect information that becomes Personal Information if we combine it with other information. For more information about how we process your Personal Information, please consult our Privacy Policy.

 

What are cookies?

 Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by online service providers in order to (for example) make their websites or services work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.

Cookies set by the website owner or service provider (in this case, The Music Link) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website or service you are using (such as advertising, interactive content and analytics). The third parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website or service in question and also when it visits certain other websites or services.

 

Why do we use cookies and other tracking technologies?

 We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites and Services to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies enable us and the third parties we work with to track and target the interests of visitors to our Websites, and we refer to these as “performance” or “functionality” cookies. For example, we use cookies to tailor content and information that we may send or display to you and otherwise personalize your experience while interacting with our Websites and to otherwise improve the functionality of the Services we provide. We also enable our users to employ cookies and similar tracking technologies in connection with their use of our Services in order to allow us and our users to track their subscribers. Finally, third parties serve cookies through our Websites and Services for advertising, analytics, and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.

Google Analytics

 This web site makes use of the "Google Analytics" third party analytics tool to gather information about the way visitors use ths site. The "Google Analytics" tool makes use of cookies to collect anonymous (aggregate) information about the way visitors use the site, such as the number of page views, how visitors reached our site and how many times they have visited our site. This information is used to improve our visitors' experience using our web site. The information generated by your visit is collected by Alphabet Inc. (formerly Google Inc.).

 Our site is using IP address anonymization for the "Google Analytics" tool. This means that the last octet of IPv4 IP addresses and the last 80 bits of IPv6 addresses are replaced by zeroes before they are sent to and collected by the third party "Google Analytics" service. The replacement takes place in the memory of your web browser and is never stored on disk or transmitted over the network. Therefore your IP address is never recorded permanently as a result of our use of "Google Analytics".

 

Other tracking technologies

We and our third party partners may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons, pixels (or “clear gifs”) and other tracking technologies. These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Websites or, in the case of web beacons, opened an e-mail that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Websites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to serve targeted advertisements to you and others like you, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of marketing campaigns. While you may not have the ability to specifically reject or disable these tracking technologies, in many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly; accordingly, in those instances, declining cookies will impair functioning of these technologies.

 

How can I control cookies?

 You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies.

 Our site gives you the option to consent to the use of cookies when you first visit our site. Moreover, you can revoke or give again your consent at any time through the clearly marked controls at the bottom of every page of our site. If you revoke your consent only the cookies marked as Mandatory above will be sent to your browser.

 Please note that revoking consent does NOT remove third party cookies from your web browser since there is no technical means to do so (third party cookies are managed by third party sites; as such, The Music Link has no control over their expiration and presence on your web server). Please remember to delete such cookies manually.

 If you prefer to reject cookies by default, you can change your web browser settings to that effect. All major browsers let you either reject cookies by default or ask you if you want to accept cookies. All major browsers allows you to review and / or delete cookies which have been stored on your computer in the past. Moreover, we strongly recommend that you turn on the Do Not Track feature on your browser. For more information please refer to the documentation of your web browser.

 Kindly note that rejecting the cookies marked above as Mandatory will make it impossible for you to use our site properly. It will make it technically impossible to log into our site. We would like to kindly remind you that this is not an acceptable reason for a refund since the liability for your inability to use our services lies with you, not us.

 Disabling Most Interest Based Advertising: Most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of Interest Based Advertising. If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com.

 Do Not Track: Some Internet browsers – like Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari – include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” or “DNT” signals. Since uniform standards for “DNT” signals have not been adopted, our Websites do not currently process or respond to “DNT” signals. To learn more about “DNT”, please visit All About Do Not Track.

 

How often will you update this Cookie Policy?

 We may update this Cookie Policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. Please therefore re-visit this Cookie Policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.
