You can withdraw your given consent at any time with effect for the future. That said, Bandcamp is assuring the security and protection of your personal data. Bandcamp also sets its own cookies on your device. This also happens if you do not have a Bandcamp user (fan, artist or label) account. If you are logged in at Bandcamp, your data will be associated directly with your Bandcamp user account. If you do not want the association to your Bandcamp user account, you must log out of Bandcamp before clicking "Buy Record", "Buy Posters" or the Bandcamp logo.
