Privacy Statement

As we enter the brave new world called “privacy concerns,” Mandolin Brothers, Ltd. wants its customers to know that we have, over our 42 years in business, always been mindful of the need for confidentiality and respect for the individual.   It is important for you to know that, at this company, information about your identity will not be sold to or shared with third parties, and that we will never send you spam.   We might occasionally send you a Sale Flyer, or an Informational poster about special pieces or new arrivals, or the occasional notice of a concert.    But we always give you an “opt-out” of such informational mailings at the bottom of each emailed flyer.

However, with the passage of time, advertising has taken on a new wrinkle and we’d like to give you a “heads up” about it.    Our display advertising partner, AdRoll, now enables us to present you with “retargeting” advertising on other sites based on your previous interaction with mandolinbros.com. The techniques our partners employ do not collect personal information such as your name, email address, postal address or telephone number.  The way it works is:  as you browse our website, advertising cookies are placed on your computer so that we can understand what you are interested in.  Companies have been placing “cookies” on computer readers’ websites since the World Wide Web became well-established back around 1993 – back when we launched our first site.   It’s not new.  But this enables you to see the familiar name “Mandolin Brothers” in display ads on the periphery of your screen when you visit some other website.  You can visit this page to opt out of AdRoll and their partners’ targeted advertising.   If you can’t open that page by clicking the underlined word “page” then use this link to opt out:  http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/.
