WHAT ARE COOKIES

Cookies and other Identifiers consist of small portions of code stored on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website that uses cookies to keep track of your movements within the site, help you resume where you left off, remember your registered login, theme selection, preferences, and other customization functions. "First party cookies" are set by the website Owner (in this case, Erik the Flutemaker Inc.) and assist in providing the Service more efficiently according to the described purposes.

Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "Third party cookies" and they enable third party features or functionalities to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

Cookie Installation is based on consent which can be freely withdrawn at any time.

WHY DO WE USE COOKIES

Cookies are often indispensable for websites that have databases, need logins, have customizable themes and other advanced features. Our main goal is to provide you with the best experience when interacting with our Services.

For technical reasons, in order for our Site to properly operate, some “essential” or “strictly necessary” third party cookies are required. To enhance your experience even further, third party cookies provide us with the necessary tools to track and target our user’s interests, for advertising, analytics and more.

HOW TO CONTROL COOKIES

There are two types of cookies: temporary (session cookies) and persistent.

Persistent cookie files remain in your browser's subfolder for the period duration set within its file and are activated again once you visit the website that created that particular cookie.
