2. WHAT TYPES OF COOKIES DO WE USE?
First, we do not place cookies until you elect to continue using our Sites after our cookie banner displays.
We use the following types of cookies:
Required Cookies: These Cookies are necessary to enable ASCAP’s core business functionality on the website (e.g., creating, logging into, or taking action in an ASCAP account) and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are typically set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or completing forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these Cookies, but certain portions and/or functionality of the site may not work if you do so.
Functional Cookies: These Cookies are not strictly necessary to enable ASCAP’s core business, but allow the site to function and cannot be switched off in our systems at this time. Some of these Cookies collect aggregated and anonymized information used to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve user experience. Others include third-party Cookies that deliver optional, enhanced functionality and personalization, such as embedded third-party music or video players.
Targeting and Social Media Cookies: These Cookies include those set by social media services that we have added to the site to enable you to share our content with your friends and networks, as well as advertising or tracking Cookies that may be dropped by third-party tools on our site, over which ASCAP has no control. These may be capable of tracking your browsing activities across other sites and building a profile of your interests. The types of information collected and activities tracked are subject to such third-party’s terms and conditions. Disabling these Cookies may impact the content and messages you see on other websites you visit and will block this site’s social media sharing functionality and access to certain content.
