What Are Cookies?
If you’d like to read more about Cookies in general, you can find more information here, in a Wikipedia article on HTTP Cookies…
We want you to have the best possible experience on BandLab, so we recommend that you leave cookies turned on when accessing our website (on your PC, mobile phone or tablet device). If you turn off cookies, there are things on BandLab that won’t work as they should and you’ll find that BandLab has less music for you to enjoy and that listening to that music is a solitary experience. For further information see ‘Disabling Cookies’ below.
The Cookies We Set
If you create an account with BandLab, then cookies will be used to help manage the signup / login process as well as for general administration. Cookies also make it so you don’t have to log in every single time you visit a new page. Much of BandLab’s core features and functionality will only work when you’re logged in.
User Preference Cookies:

Third Party Cookies
We use third party analytics tools to help us measure traffic and usage trends, such as Google Analytics. These tools help us understand how people use BandLab and help us find ways we can improve your experience. Tracking how long you spend on the site and which pages you visit, for example, can help us make sure we’re always delivering the most relevant experience for you. Through these cookies, we and/or our third party providers will not collect any personal data, i.e. any information that identifies you or is capable of identifying you.

Other Third Parties:
From time to time we also test new features and make subtle changes to the way the site is delivered. When we’re still testing new features, some third party cookies may be used to ensure that you receive a consistent experience on BandLab, whilst ensuring we understand which new features our users like the most.
In some cases, we may provide you with custom content based on what you tell us about yourself—either directly or indirectly—by linking a social media account. These types of cookies simply allow us to provide you with content that we feel may be of interest to you.
We also use social media buttons and/or plugins on this site that allow you to connect with your social network in various ways. For these to work, many social media sites—including Facebook, Google Plus, Instagram, Twitter, etc.—will set cookies through our site, which may be used to enhance your profile on their site or contribute to the data they hold for various purposes outlined in their respective privacy policies.
You can prevent cookies being added by adjusting the settings on your browser (the “Help” section on your browser should tell you how to do this). But do be aware that disabling cookies will affect the functionality of this and many other websites that you visit. Disabling cookies will usually result in switching off some functions and features on BandLab.
For example, if you turn off cookies:
- You won’t be able to sign-in to Bandlab
- You won’t be able to make music on BandLab
- You won’t be able to collaborate on BandLab
- You won’t be able to create Shouts or comment on BandLab.
