Cookies are also responsible for making sure that you don’t have to view the ‘Splash Screen’ each time you come to the site – thanks to cookies you only see it the first time.
It is possible to configure your web browser to either accept or reject cookies from a website. If your browser is set to accept cookies, and you continue to visit our site, then we will take this as your indication of your consent. You can disable cookies and still use our site, but it may not function properly.
Cookies help to let us see (via Google Analytics) how many people have visited the site and what content is popular, and what isn’t.

Why are we telling you this?
Well the European Union have introduced a new directive that makes it a requirement for websites to get consent for using cookies. Nothing has changed at singingwells.dev – except for the little cookie triangle in the bottom corner of the screen. The Cookies that we use are very much standard and in the true spirit of Abubilla Music and the foundation, we like to be open with you about our methods and how and why we do things.
We want to make you aware of this without being too intrusive, so we feel this is the best way to do it. You’ll also notice that all sites are starting to do it. The directive says that functions that are essential to the site are exempt, so sites with shopping carts that remember what you have added etc. won’t have to ask you, but sites like http://www.bbc.co.uk do – and you will notice them asking you about it.
The ruling was passed a few years back, and they gave a grace period which expires on the 26th May 2012- hence we’ve waited as long as we can before adding this info.
