What are Cookies?
A cookie is a small information file that is sent to your computer and is stored on your hard drive. They can’t read other information saved on your hard drive – they only contain and transfer to the website as much information as the users themselves have disclosed. If you have created an account on yiddishtwistorchestra.com then your computer will store an identifying cookie which will save you time each time you visit our site by remembering your email address. You can change the settings on your browser at any time to prevent cookies being stored on your computer without your explicit consent, but please take note that this will limit the amount of functions you can use on yiddishtwistorchestra.com.
Cookies are used to track visitors’ interest in our products which enables us to understand what most appeals to our customers so we can customise our offers as much as possible. Browsing behaviour is also used to create relevant banner advertising with product recommendations that we believe correlate to the items you viewed on our website. You will probably see these banners appear on other websites that you visit. This is called behavioural advertising. The adverts will be specifically tailored to each visitor but all cookie data is anonymous and only stored temporarily. For information on how to opt out of this type of advertising, click the ‘i’ icon on the display banner.
