Cookie Policy

We and our business partners collect information about your use of our online services using cookies. Cookies are very small files that are sent by us to your computer or other device which we can access when you visit our site in future. Cookies help us remember who you are and other information about your visits. They can help display the information on a website in a way that matches your interests. Most major websites use cookies.

Some cookies on this site are essential, and the web site won’t work as expected without them. For example without the temporary cookies we use you would not be able to add items to your basket and make a purchase. We give you the option to choose if you would like to have your customer ID remembered to make it easier for you to place an order (we do not recommend setting the “Remember Me” option on if you are using a shared computer/internet access device). This information also enables us to show you products by your favourite artists when you visit the web site.

Every now and again, we may ask you for your opinion on our services and the products you have purchased through our services. When we do research or surveys, we may use cookies and may combine the information collected by those cookies with your answers.

What is a cookie and what does it do?

A cookie is a small file that is sent to the browser and saved on your device when you visit a website that allows cookies (“the website”). Cookies allow the site to function efficiently and improve its services, in addition to providing information to the site owner for statistical or advertising purposes, primarily to personalise your navigation experience by remembering your preferences (for example, remembering the language and currency you set, in order to recognise you at the next visit, etc.)

Which cookies do we use and why?

Our website uses various types of first party cookies (organised and managed by the Vinyl Value Records), and third party cookies (organised and managed by third parties based on their own individual privacy policies and not under the control of Vinyl Value Records) and similar technologies, each of which has a specific function. Below is a table explaining them.

Types of cookie

Navigation cookies

Our website uses various types of first party cookies (organised and managed by the Vinyl Value Records), and third party cookies (organised and managed by third parties based on their own individual privacy policies and not under the control of Vinyl Value Records) and similar technologies, each of which has a specific function. Below is a table explaining them.

Functional cookies

These cookies allow, based on your express request, for you to be recognised when you subsequently access the website, so that you do not have to enter your information each time (for example: “Remember me”). If you have added items into your Shopping Bag and closed the session without completing the purchase and without eliminating those items, these cookies allow you to continue the shopping experience the next time you access the website (within a limited period), finding the same articles that were selected. Functional cookies are not essential to the functioning of the website, but rather improve navigation quality and experience.

Analytical cookies

These first party cookies are the property of the Vinyl Value Records (the site manager) and are used to collect data in an anonymous and aggregate way. These cookies are used to prepare statistical analyses on the navigation methods of our website’s users. Vinyl Value Records treats the results of these analyses anonymously and exclusively for statistical purposes only.

Social Network cookies

These cookies are necessary to allow your social account to interact with our website. For example, they are used to express your appreciation and to share it with your social networking friends. The social network cookies are not needed for navigation. For more information on the policies regarding the use of social network cookies, it is possible to consult the respective privacy and cookies policies:
