Welcome to the audioBoom platform, which is owned and operated by audioBoom Limited. Here we explain what cookies may be set when you visit the platform and how to reject or delete those cookies.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small data file that is placed on your computer or other device to allow a platform to recognise you as a user when you return using the same device and web browser, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (a ‘persistent cookie’). Other similar files work in the same way and we use the word ‘cookie’ to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

So, for example, when you accessed the platform, you were presented with a message that told you we were using cookies. We had to use a cookie to present you with that notice. If you continue to use the platform, more cookies and other tracking technologies will be placed on your device as described in this Cookie Policy. They help to enhance your user experience.
