What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or application. Your web browser (such as Safari, Microsoft EDGE, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome) then sends these cookies back to the website or application on each subsequent visit so that they can recognise your return visit and remember things like personalised details, basket contents or user preferences you made previously.

4. Third party cookies
Most cookies we use are “first party cookies”, which means they are set and controlled by DEROSA MUSIC ltd. You may have a third party cookie set for example if you watch one of our YouTube videos and then watch further suggested (by YouTube) videos which may contain adverts. Any cookies set in this way are beyond our control.
How to control, manage or delete cookies
There are various ways that you can control and manage cookies but be aware that any cookies you remove will affect the whole site during your visit or session. For instance you may not be able to remember items in the basket if you are buying something online (a process which requires cookies). Also please be aware that deleting cookies on one device (e.g. a mobile phone) doesn’t automatically delete them from another device (e.g. a tablet) when you visit our website. So you must delete cookies by device.
Managing cookies in the browser of your device.
Most browsers will allow you to:
• See what cookies are set and delete them on an individual or global basis.
• Block third party cookies.
• Block all cookies from being set.
• Delete all cookies when you close your browser.
The nature of cookies
Be aware that any preferences you set previously will be lost if you “delete all cookies”. This includes your request to opt out from cookies, as this requires an opt-out cookie to be set. This means that if you opt out from cookies and then delete all cookies, your opt out will not be saved and you will need to opt out again next time you visit (which will store a strictly necessary cookie so that your device can remember that you have opted out).
If you block cookies completely, this website will not work properly and some functionality will not work at all. We do not recommend turning cookies off for this reason.

We recommend that you DO NOT continue using Internet Explorer as Microsoft are no longer supporting browser development for IE which includes security updates. This may open your device up to exploitable browser vulnerabilities when browsing the internet in general.
