Web Site Collection and Use of Information
Information Collected Through Our Website, Methods of Collection and How We Use This Information
All information on our site is free to browse at your leisure without the need for you to provide us with any personal information. In fulfilling our mission to continue Derek Mason’s musical legacy by providing a listening experience, Derek Mason Music Productions (derekmasonmusic.com) may collect “aggregate” information, which is non-personally identifiable information. This means that we do not track these items on an individual basis that identifies you, but rather accumulate this information on an aggregate basis that includes all site visitors. Non-personal information includes tracking the site pages visited or the amount of time spent on our site.
Our primary goal in collecting aggregate information is to be able to perform site metrics that allow us to improve the functionality of the web site. The aggregate information is used to track page visits, recognize peak usage times and analyze potential site redesign.
When you visit our web site, a server hosting the pages automatically generates a “session log.” We use session logs to help us determine how people (and search robots) travel through our site. In this way, we can structure our pages so that the information most frequently visited is easier to find. By tracking page visits, we can also determine if the information we’re providing is being used. The data generally gathered is the Internet Protocol (IP) address from which you came (which contains no personal information), the web site that referred you, the pages you visited and the date and time of those visits. This data may be used to compile aggregate and statistical data to help in web site design, to identify popular features, to measure site activity, and to perform analytics on your experience to improve our web site. Site metrics for Derek Mason Music Productions (derekmasonmusic.com) may be shared within our proprietorship company, and with our web service providers. The information shared will be aggregate data and will not include any of your personally identifiable information.
When you view one of our web sites or interactive music playlists we may use “cookies” to collect aggregate data. A “cookie” is a small text file that helps us in many ways to make your visit to our web site more enjoyable and meaningful to you. For example, cookies avoid you having to wait unreasonably, every time you come back to our web site. They also allow us to tailor a web site to better match our visitors’ interests and preferences. There are a couple different types of cookies. A “session” cookie is stored only in your computer’s working memory (RAM) and only lasts for your browsing session. When you close all your browser’s windows, or when you shut down your computer, the session cookie disappears forever. A “persistent” cookie is stored on your computer’s hard drive until a specified date, which could be tomorrow, next week, or 10 years from now. Persistent cookies stay on your computer until either a) they expire, b) they are overwritten with newer cookies, c) you manually remove them. Most browsers can be configured not to accept cookies, however, this may prevent you from having access to some of our site’s functions or features.
