It is not possible to not communicate. Every behavior is some kind of non-verbal communication.
Every communication has a content. In addition, there is 'metainformation', which says how the communicator wants to be understood.
All partners involved in a communication process also interpret their own behaviour during communication.
Human communication involves both verbal and non-verbal communication. In addition to the spoken words, there are is also a non-spoken part (gestures, behavior, intonation..) which is part of the communication.
Communication between humans is either symmetric or complementary. This is based on whether the relationship of those communicating is based on differences or parity.
Recently, we have made changes to the way audio files are handled through our store. Previously, audio sales would provide a downloadable MP3. This feature is being phased out and replaced with an audio streaming option. This means you won't have to download or keep track of your MP3 files. You can now stream them directly through a web browser (or the CE21 Mobile app). Audio streaming products can be saved in the CE21 mobile app for offline playback.
