TERMS & CONDITIONS
1. What are cookies?
1.1. What are cookies and why are they important for user experience?
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device.
Cookies do lots of different and useful jobs, such as letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences. They help us understand how our website is used and improve your online experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
2. What type of cookies do we use?
2.1 Which cookies are used by TEDxPatras?
Strictly Necessary Cookies. Most of the cookies we use are session cookies, which are automatically deleted from your hard disk at the end of the browser session. Session cookies are needed to help the website function.
Analytical and Advertising Cookies. In addition to these we also use longer-term cookies that stay on your hard disk. On a subsequent visit it is then automatically recognised that you have previously visited us, and we know which input and settings you prefer. These cookies are stored on your hard disk and are automatically deleted after 30 days. They make our website more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. These cookies make it possible for us to show you information that is relevant to you. The sole purpose of these cookies is to adapt our content to your needs as well as to make browsing our pages as enjoyable as possible.
2.2 Are there also cookies from third-party suppliers (so-called “third-party cookies”)?
TEDxPatras makes use of a number of web partners who help to make our websites more interesting for you. This is why, when visiting our websites, the cookies of these companies may also be stored on your hard disk. These cookies are deleted automatically after a pre-specified period. The cookies of our partner companies also contain solely pseudonymous or anonymous aggregated data. This relates, for example, to data on which pages you have looked at, whether anything was bought or a signup occurred, among other actions. Here, some of our advertising partners also collect information from our websites on which pages you have previously visited in order to be able to show you advertising that best complies with your interests.
Third-party cookies used on our Webpage are the following:
fbp => Used by Facebook to deliver a series of advertisement products such as real time bidding from third-party advertisers.
ga => Used to distinguish users. By google analytics
gid => Used to distinguish users. By google analytics
gat => Used to throttle request rate. If Google Analytics is deployed via Google Tag Manager, this cookie will be named _dc_gtm_<property-id>.

2.3 What is onsite targeting?
Data is collected on TEDxPatras websites using cookies for optimisation of our advertising and of the entire online experience. This data is not used to identify you personally but solely serves the purpose of conducting a pseudonymous evaluation of the use made of our pages. With this technology, we can present advertising, special offers and services to you, the content of which is based on information obtained from a connection to click-stream analysis (for example, advertising that is based on the fact that during the past few days only you have viewed a specific page). Our aim here is to make our offers as relevant to you as possible and to present advertising that corresponds to your areas of interest.
Our websites make use of so-called re-targeting technologies. We use these technologies to make our offering more interesting for you. Retargeting allows users who have already shown an interest in our events to also be provided with suitable advertising on the websites of our partners. The use of personalised, interest-oriented advertising is generally more interesting for users than advertising that has no such personal customisation. The use of this advertising approach by our partners is undertaken on the basis of a cookie technology and an analysis of previous utilisation behaviour. This form of advertising is completely pseudonymous. On using our sites, cookies are deployed and thereby usage data is collected from you, stored and utilised. Your data is furthermore stored in cookies beyond the end of the browser session so that it can be called up again on your next visits to the websites.
2.5 How can you prevent the storage of cookies?

By enabling a specific setting, you can ensure that the storage of cookies is only permissible when you consent to it, effectively preventing any future storage. If you wish to accept only TEDxPatras cookies and block those from our service companies and partners, you can choose the “Block third-party cookies” setting in your browser.

Additionally, you can amend your browser’s cookie settings to be notified before any cookie is placed on your device, deactivate any or all cookies used by our webpage, or delete cookies already installed.
