(a) our web server may record information about your computer and about your visits to and use of this website (including

Except as stated already, Opus One Music Services will make no attempt to identify individual website users.
You should be aware, however, that access to web pages will generally create log entries in the systems of your ISP or network service provider. These entities may be in a position to identify
computer equipment used to access a page. Such monitoring would be done by the provider of network services and is beyond the responsibility or control of Opus One Music Services.
All website server log file information collected by Opus One Music Services is kept secure and no access to raw log
files is given to any third party. This information does not result in the identification of your personal e-mail address or other personal information. The information collected is only

A cookie consists of information sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The information is then
sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser. Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies,
whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking "Tools", "Internet Options", "Privacy",
and selecting "Block all cookies" using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.
No cookies are set while browsing this website except for when using our 'phpBB' message board - as detailed below:
This policy explains in detail how “OPUS ONE BIG BAND” along with its affiliated companies (hereinafter “we”, “us”, “our”,
“OPUS ONE BIG BAND”, “http://www.opusonebigband.com/phpBB2”) and phpBB (hereinafter “they”, “them”, “their”, “phpBB software”, “www.phpbb.com”, “phpBB Group”, “phpBB Teams”) use any information
collected during any session of usage by you (hereinafter “your information”).
Your information is collected via two ways. Firstly, by browsing “OPUS ONE BIG BAND” will cause the phpBB software to create a number
of cookies, which are small text files that are downloaded on to your computer’s web browser temporary files. The first two cookies just contain a user identifier ( phpbb3_1wf8g_u and phpbb3_1wf8g_k hereinafter
“user-id”) and an anonymous session identifier ( phpbb3_1wf8g_sid hereinafter “session-id”), automatically assigned to you by the phpBB software. A third cookie style_cookie will
be created once you have browsed topics within “OPUS ONE BIG BAND” and is used to store which topics have been read, thereby improving your user experience.
We may also create cookies external to the phpBB software whilst browsing “OPUS ONE BIG BAND”, though these are outside the scope of this
document which is intended to only cover the pages created by the phpBB software. The second way in which we collect your information is by what you submit to us. This can be, and is not
limited to: posting as an anonymous user (hereinafter “anonymous posts”), registering on “OPUS ONE BIG BAND” (hereinafter “your account”) and posts submitted by you after registration and
whilst logged in (hereinafter “your posts”).
Your account will at a bare minimum contain a uniquely identifiable name (hereinafter “your user name”), a personal password used for
logging into your account (hereinafter “your password”) and a personal, valid e-mail address (hereinafter “your e-mail”). Your information for your account at “OPUS ONE BIG BAND” is protected
by data-protection laws applicable in the country that hosts us. Any information beyond your user name, your password, and your e-mail address required by “OPUS ONE BIG BAND” during the
registration process is either mandatory or optional, at the discretion of “OPUS ONE BIG BAND”. In all cases, you have the option of what information in your account is publicly displayed.
Furthermore, within your account, you have the option to opt-in or opt-out of automatically generated e-mails from the phpBB software.
Your password is ciphered (a one-way hash) so that it is secure. However, it is recommended that you do not reuse the same password across
a number of different websites. Your password is the means of accessing your account at “OPUS ONE BIG BAND”, so please guard it carefully and under no circumstance will anyone affiliated
with “OPUS ONE BIG BAND”, phpBB or another 3rd party, legitimately ask you for your password. Should you forget your password for your account, you can use the “I forgot my password” feature
provided by the phpBB software. This process will ask you to submit your user name and your e-mail, then the phpBB software will generate a new password to reclaim your account.
