  • Introduction
  • This website uses its own and third-party cookies to provide visitors with a much better browsing experience and services adapted to everyone's needs and interests. This Cookie Policy applies to all users of the Fest website.

  • What is a "cookie"?
  • An "Internet cookie" (also known as a "browser cookie", "HTTP cookie" or simply "cookie") is a small file consisting of letters and numbers that will be stored on a computer, mobile terminal or other user equipment from which the Internet is accessed.

    The cookie is installed at the request of the web server in the browser (for example, Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely “passive” (does not contain programs, viruses or spyware and cannot access information on the user’s hard drive).

    A cookie consists of 2 parts: the name and the content or value of the cookie. Furthermore, the lifetime of a cookie is determined; technically, only the web server that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the website associated with that web server.

    The cookies themselves do not require the use of personal information and in most cases do not identify Internet users.

  • There are 2 large categories of cookies:
  • Session cookies - these are temporarily stored in the cookies file of the web browser so that it remembers them until the user leaves the respective website or closes the browser window (eg: when logging in/out of a webmail account or on social networks).

    Persistent cookies - They are stored on computer's or hardware's hard drive (and usually depend on the cookie's set expiration date). Persistent cookies also include those placed on a website other than the one the user is currently visiting - known as "third-party cookies" - which can be used anonymously to remember the user's interests to provide the most relevant experience. advertising for users.

  • What are the advantages of cookies?
  • A cookie contains information that links a web browser (the user) and a specific web server (the website). If the browser accesses this web server again, it can read the information already stored and respond accordingly. Cookies provide users with a better browsing experience and support the efforts of many websites to provide user-friendly services: for example, online privacy settings, website language settings, shopping carts or relevant advertising.

  • What is the lifespan of cookies?
  • The lifetime of cookies can vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed. There are the following categories of cookies that also determine their lifetime: Session cookies – A "session cookie" is a cookie that is automatically deleted when the user closes their browser. Persistent or Fixed Cookies – A "persistent" or "fixed cookie" is a cookie that remains stored on the user's terminal until it reaches a certain expiration date (which may be minutes, days or years in the future) or until to its deletion by the user at any time through the browser settings.

  • What are cookies placed by third parties?
  • Certain sections of content on some sites may be provided through third parties/providers (eg news box, a video or an advertisement). These third parties can also place cookies through the website and they are called "third party cookies" because they are not placed by the owner of the respective website. Third-party providers must also comply with the law in force and the privacy policies of the website owner.
