Singer Instruments Cookie Policy

Balancing your right to complete privacy with our need to create the best online system possible is not easy. One of the areas that can present an issue is the use of cookies and we are doing everything we can to make sure you can make an informed choice when it comes to how much information you want to share with us.

So, What is a Cookie?

Simply put a cookie is a small piece of code that we as the website provider can use to analyse what our visitors do when they come to our site. In order to see how our visitors interact with our website we place a cookie on the users browser (for example Google Chrome). These cookies are anonymous, don’t collect any personally identifiable information and many of them simply expire after a short period of time.

Why Do We Need Cookies?

Part of the process of refining and improving our online experience is to constantly analyse the traffic that visits us. By doing this we can see which of our pages is more popular, what content people like to engage with, which videos get viewed and what people do before they leave. Using this data means we can focus our efforts to remove anything that detracts from the user experience and augment or improve the things that work well.

Types of Cookie

The cookies we use fall into two major categories: Persistent Cookies and Session Cookies.

Persistent cookies, as the name suggests, last longer in the browser. This means that, when you come back to Singer Instruments we know you are are a returning visitor and can treat you accordingly. Session cookies only last as long as you are on the site. A session cookie is created when you land on the site and are removed when you leave.

Cookie Purposes

The purposes of cookies can be defined in four ways: Strictly Necessary, Performance, Functional and Marketing.

Strictly necessary cookies are integral to the use of our website. These enable us to assign a random unique identifier to each of our visitors which then allows us to quantify visitors and for them to use elements of the site like the contact form.

Performance cookies collect statistical data that we can use to measure how each of our visitors interacts with the site. This allows us to analyse how our website performs in comparison to other sites and how our performance changes over time.

Functional cookies remember your preferences so that next time you use a website things like language preferences, what region you are in are already set and you won’t see messages intended for first time visitors.

Marketing cookies make it possible for us to reach you when you are not on our site but might be looking for something related to Singer Instruments. This is done by advertising our services to people on the internet that are searching for things relevant to us or using other websites that are related.
