To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
This session cookie allows us to know you are the same person when you move from one page to the next, for both users who are logged in and also for some users who have not logged-in.
When you log-in, we store a greeting (usually your name) so that you know you are logged in as the right person when you continue to browse around the website or continue onwards to purchase tickets or items from our shop.
When you add tickets or products to your basket, we set a cookie on your machine to ensure that we are able to correctly let you know when your basket will expire and your tickets will stop being reserved for you.
When you add tickets to your basket, we set a cookie that logs that you have items in your basket and helps us to display the correct basket status to you when you then continue to browse around the website.
As well as the advertising conversion tracking and targeting pixels outlined above, where we are essentially the data controller, we also host various third-party tools and services on the website to enhance your experience, help you share information or enable us to optimise online advertising campaigns. These tools include social like or share buttons and embedded secure forms for sign-ups or competitions. They also include services to enable us to embed our media into the website – eg to embed video, we use tools from YouTube, Facebook or Vimeo or to share audio recordings we may use services such as SoundCloud or Spotify.
These tools or services often include cookies from these third-parties. Kilkenny Tradfest is not the Data controller for the information gathered via these cookies, and has no access to the information. You can find out more about the third-parties cookie policies and how to opt-out of their processing activity via the links below.
We use Google Analytics to determine how popular parts of our website are, to determine if you have been to the website before, and to securely and anonymously record the value of any purchases you make on our website. Google analytics sets cookies which will stay active for a number of years and identify on your computer that you have visited our website.
These cookies can be identified by their prefix of __u…. You can opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites you visit by installing a browser plugin at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
Remarketing to advertise across websites
Google (and other similar third parties) will show ads across websites that our users are visiting.
If you want to opt out of our remarketing campaigns you can visit Google’s Ads Settings page – http://www.google.com/settings/ads.
How to control cookies
You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.
