As with most other websites, BigAppleMedia.com uses “cookies” (a text file that is placed on your hard disk or internal storage device by a web-page server) to help you personalize your online experience. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For instance, if you personalize BigAppleMedia.com pages, or register with the BigAppleMedia.com website or services, a cookie helps BigAppleMedia.com to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. When you return to the BigAppleMedia.com website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so that you can easily use the BigAppleMedia.com features that you may have customized.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser settings to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, however, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the BigAppleMedia.com services or websites you visit.
