Cookie Policy

This Cookie Statement explains how KDS 2020 uses cookies and similar technologies to recognise you when you visit our site and any other webpages, subdomains, country level domain variants that link or refer to this Cookie Statement, and in course of using any of our services. It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them. 

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, KDS 2020) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

Why do we use cookies?

Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our website to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their website experience. Third parties, such as EventBrite which is used to organise the registration process for KDS 2020, serve cookies for advertising, analytics and other purposes.
