Cookie Policy

Our Privacy Policy explains our principles when it comes to the collection, processing, and storage of your information. The Cookie Policy specifically explains how we, our partners, and users of our services deploy cookies, as well as the options you have to control them.


What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to ‘remember’ you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a ‘session cookie’) or for multiple repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as ‘first party cookies’), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (‘third party cookies’).


Cookies Set When Using Our Site

We use cookies for a number of different purposes. Some cookies are necessary for technical reasons; some enable a personalized experience for both visitors and registered users; and some allow the display of advertising from selected third party networks. Some of these cookies may be set when a page is loaded, or when a visitor takes a particular action.

Here are the categories of cookies set by or through minus6db.com, along with examples of their use:

  • Strictly Necessary: These are the cookies that are essential for the site to perform basic functions. Example: Cookies that allow registered users to authenticate and perform account related functions on minus6db.com.
  • Functionality: These cookies are used to store preferences set by users such as account name, language, and location. Example: Cookies used to remember visitors who comment on our blog posts (see Blog Post Comment Cookies, below).
  • Tracking: These are set by trusted third party networks to track details such as the number of unique visitors and page views to help improve the user experience. Example: Minus6db.com uses Google Analytics. For more information about these cookies, please visit How Google Uses Cookies.
  • Third Party/Embedded Content: Minus6db makes use of different third party applications and services to enhance the experience of website visitors. As a result, cookies may be set by these third parties, and used by them to track your online activity. We have no direct control over the information that is collected by these cookies. Example: We embed videos from YouTube.com using its Privacy-Enhanced mode, which limits the information it collects from our visitors.

Blog Post Comment Cookies

When posting a comment on one of our blog posts, you may opt-in to have a cookie placed to remember your name and email address. This will allow you to post additional comments without needing to enter your name and email address again.


YouTube Cookies

The videos on this site are externally hosted on YouTube and are embedded using YouTube’s privacy enhanced mode. Per YouTube’s embedding videos information page, YouTube will not store personally-identifiable information for playback of embedded videos under this mode. Please note that Minus6db has no direct control over YouTube’s use of cookies with embedded videos. For further information, please consult the Google Privacy Policy, which is the privacy policy used by YouTube.


Controlling Cookies

Visitors may wish to restrict the use of cookies, or completely prevent them from being set. Most browsers provide for ways to control cookie behavior such as the length of time they are stored — either through built-in functionality or by utilizing third party plugins.
