Hi, and welcome to Bandsintown’s Cookie Policy.

The objective of this Policy is to provide you, as a user of Bandsintown’s services, with clear and accessible information about the cookies that we use, the role they play in helping us provide the best possible experience to you and the choices you have when it comes to your cookie settings.

1.    What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a small data file that is placed on the hard drive of your computer, tablet, smartphone or other device when you visit a website. They are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. 
 
When we refer to cookies, this includes other similar technologies such as tracking pixels  (transparent graphic images placed on a web page or in an email, which indicate that a page or email has been viewed), Google Tag Manager, or web storage used in desktop software or mobile devices.
 
Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your user experience. They can also help to ensure that ads you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
 
Some cookies are functional and enable additional functionality when a user accesses the website (e.g. allows users to save user preferences or language suggestions).  Other cookies are non-functional and allow the website and third parties to tailor messages and advertising relevant to a user’s interests.   We use cookies to keep track of how you use our website and services so we may provide a personalized service.  
 
There are a few different categories of cookies, including:

Session and Persistent Cookies

• Session Cookies - these are cookies which expire once you close your web browser,
• Persistent Cookies - these are cookies which stay on your device for a set period of time or until you delete
them.

First and Third Party Cookies
• First-party cookies - these are cookies set by the website that you are visiting at that time, either by us, or by a third party at our request;
• Third-party cookies - these are cookies that are set by a party other than that of the website you are visiting. If you visit the Bandsintown website or use the Bandsintown Service and another party sets a cookie through that website this would be a third-party cookie.
