Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company is committed to protecting user privacy. We understand and appreciate that visitors and users of this web site are concerned about their privacy and the confidentiality and security of any information that may be provided to us.
Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company has established a privacy statement to reiterate our commitment to these principles.
Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company Website is a cookie-free site. When you look at this web site, our server makes a record of your visit and logs the following information for statistical purposes only:
- the user’s server address
- the user’s top level domain name (for example .com, .gov, .au, etc)
- the date and time of visit to the site
- the pages accessed and documents downloaded
- the previous site visited, and
- the type of browser used.
No attempt is or will be made to identify users or their browsing activities except, in the unlikely event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect activity logs.
A cookie is a message given to a web browser by a web server. The browser stores the message in a text file called cookie.txt. The message is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. The main purpose of cookies is to identify users and possibly prepare customised web pages for them. When you enter a website which is using cookies, you may be asked to fill out a form providing such information as your name and interests. This information is packaged into a cookie and sent to your web browser, which stores it for later use. The next time you go to the same website, your browser will send the cookie to the web server. The server can use this information to present you with custom web pages. So, for example, instead of seeing just a generic welcome page, you might see a welcome page with your name on it.
The name ‘cookies’ is derived from UNIX objects called magic cookies. These are tokens that are attached to a user or program and change depending on the areas entered by the user or program. Cookies are also sometimes called persistent cookies because they typically stay in the browser for long periods of time.
