Gigs North East Cookie Policy

In order to ensure users of our website are getting the most out of their experience with us, we use cookies on our website. A cookie is a small file that is automatically placed onto your computer when you click through and use websites (including this one) and which is stored by the browser on your computer’s hard drive. It is important to understand that a cookie stores data about your computer, not your personal data. Gigs North East do not use cookies to store information about you. Cookies are only used to track your order progress and user preferences and to improve your overall experience using the website.

We track two types of cookies: Temporary and Persistent

Temporary Cookie

A temporary cookie is used to keep track of your  “session”. Without that temporary cookie (which is not stored after you quit your browser) you would have to log on every time you access a new page.

Persistent Cookie

A persistent cookie is stored on your device. They help us provide you with user preferences, settings and information for future visits on our Platform. Persistent cookies allow convenient and easy access to familiar variables such as facilitating preferences such as favourites, bookmarks or language preferences. They can also be used to assess browsing behaviour.

Various cookies do different things, including:

Absolutely necessary cookies
These cookies are required to help the website function with the system settings of the device you are using – i.e to communicate to the website that you are using a mobile or
desktop.

Session Cookie
This cookie is used to identify you as you work through our website and the ticket ordering process.

Traffic Management Cookie
This cookie is used to ensure the Site operates smoothly in heavy traffic, giving you the best possible experience by sharing our web traffic between multiple servers to permit specific use to certain IP addresses.

Cookie Options Cookie
This cookie is used to save whether or not you consent to other cookies being used. It is not used to gather information, but instead acts as a guard to other cookies, should you opt out for cookie data. If you delete this cookie your Gigs North East privacy settings will reset back to default and you will be shown a message at the bottom of the window asking you if you’d like to change your privacy options.

Advertising Cookies
Targeting and advertising cookies track your internet habits and are used to deliver you advertising that a legally compliant party would like someone with your interests to receive. They can also limit the number of times you see an ad and to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns, dependent on how the advertiser sets that ad to behave.
