5. Management of cookies preferences

It is possible to allow, reject or customize the use of cookies through the Cookie Banner that is located on the bottom left corner of the device’s screen on winamp.com website. However, giving instructions regarding the use of cookies through the browser settings is more powerful than accepting or rejecting cookies through the Cookie Banner.


6. How do I reject or delete cookies?

 

 6.1. Refusing cookies:

Most browsers have an option for turning off the cookie feature, which will prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, as well as (depending on the sophistication of your browser software) allowing you to decide on acceptance of each new cookie in a variety of ways. If you would prefer not to accept cookies in general, but want to make an exception for Winamp’s cookies, you can specially configure your browser settings.

6.2. Removing cookies:

You can configure your browser to automatically remove cookies when you close your browser. If you do that, your browser will not for example remember log-in details such as usernames and passwords. You will have to enter them again every time you start a session.

6.3. How do avoid being tracked?

You have to enable Do Not Track in your browser. Do Not Track is a feature in a browser that allows you to let a website know you would like to opt-out of tracking for purposes including behavioral advertising. It does this by transmitting a Do Not Track HTTP header every time your data is requested from the website.
