What Are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files located in the browser directory of your computer or mobile device. When you visit a website, it can send information back to your browser. The browser then creates a cookie that is stored on your computer. Every time you revisit the same website, that website can access the information stored in the cookie created by your previous visit, as long as you have not deleted it or it has not expired.
Cookies are not just created by the website you visit, but may also be created by other applications or services that work with the website you are viewing.
No personal information is stored in any AMLD cookie.
What Are Cookies Used For?
Cookies are used for a number of reasons. They:
- help us improve functionality such as search performance;
- help us monitor the performance of our website;
- help us personalize a limited amount of content shown to you on the website;
- help us understand how people use our website.
We have three kinds of cookies that we use on the website:
Some cookies are essential to allow our website to work properly. The cookie _amld_website_session, for example, is set by default by the application that runs the website appliedmldays.org.
Third-party cookies are cookies created by a website other than the one you are currently visiting. We currently embed services from third party websites to provide extra functionality.
- Tito Cookies (on the tickets pages):
These cookies are set by the ticketing application software (Tito) that we use to host the web application. These cookies do not store any data that is tracked.
- Stripe Cookies (on the tickets pages):
Stripe is used as payment system and sets a cookie on initial page load.
These cookies are set by Stripe and are used by Stripe’s fraud detection software to assist in ensuring that only safe and legitimate transactions are allowed through their payment system
Stripe cookies policy: https://stripe.com/cookies-policy/legal
- Youtube Cookies:
These cookies are set via embedded YouTube videos. They register anonymous statistical data on for example how many times the video is displayed and what settings are used for playback.
No sensitive data is collected unless you log in to your google account, in that case your choices are linked with your account, for example if you click “like” on a video.
Analytical cookies allow us to keep track of our website analytics. It is highly beneficial for us to know how many visitors we get, where they are visiting from, what the most popular pages are, and what time of day has the least number of visitors (so we know the best time to do maintenance).
We use third party services to track our analytics. Examples of the cookies they set are _gid and _ga.
We use analytics services from Google, including Google Analytics. We do not send any personal information about you to Google. If you would rather not have any of your data be used by Google Analytics, you can opt out by using Google’s own opt-out browser add-on.
