  • Cookies on our website
    1. We use the following three categories of cookies on our website: (i) functional cookies, (ii) analytics cookies, and (iii) third party (social media) cookies.
  1. Functional cookies

Strictly functional cookies enable you to move around our website and use its features, record information about choices that you have made, and tailor the website to your needs. Without these cookies, we will not be able to provide certain features, such as automatic forwarding to the least busy server,  remembering your wish lists, and saving your preferred language. These cookies will always be operating, regardless of consent, unless you block them by changing your browser settings.

  1. Analytics cookies (Google Analytics cookies):

Analytics cookies help to improve the performance of our website, providing a better user experience. We use analytics cookies on our website for internal user statistics purposes. These cookies also help us to provide you with a better user experience. Information supplied by analytics cookies helps us to understand how our visitors use our website, which enables us to improve how we present our content to you. They also allow us to test different design ideas for particular pages, such as our home page.

For these analytics purposes, we use Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a user statistics service offered by Google, Inc. (Google), which places the relevant cookies on your device. Google receives the information collected with these analytics cookies to provide anonymous user statistics to us with regard to the use of our website. The statistics received via the Google Analytics cookies allow us to better understand how our visitors use our website. We have concluded a data processor agreement with Google and have implemented other technical privacy protective measures, such as masking (anonymization) of IP addresses and turning off data sharing. Google also provides an opt-out feature in relation to Google Analytics.

We are not responsible for the privacy and/or cookie policy of Google or any other third party.

  1. Third party (social media) cookies

To support our communications, we sometimes embed photos and video content from providers such as Google and YouTube via https://vidcon.com. Pages on this website with this embedded content may present cookies from these third party providers. Similarly, when you use one of the share buttons on this website, a cookie may be set by the third party service you have chosen to share content through. The third party cookies are placed by the relevant third party provider. We do not control the dissemination of these cookies and we cannot block cookies from those providers placed via third party websites. We also have limited knowledge and control over these cookies, the data recorded using these cookies, and the purposes these are used for. The third party providers will use the gathered information for their own purposes. Gathered information may (among other things) include information on how you use the options of the relevant third party and may allow the relevant third party to recognize and track you across websites on the internet. You should check the relevant third party cookie provider’s website for more information about these cookies.

  1. Third party (advertising) cookies

In some instances, VidCon may partner with external advertising platforms to promote our content. These platforms use cookies to understand users’ browsing and buying activities so that we can measure the success of online advertising campaigns we run. Some of these retargeting platforms also uses web beacons (also known as 1×1 gifs), along with cookies, to determine if a user has visited a particular website. These beacons aid in providing more relevant advertising to the user, as well measuring the success of an advertising campaign, but provide no personally identifiable information.

These platforms do not store or use email addresses in any way other than to match browser cookies. They use Non-Personally Identifiable Information (Non-PII) only, which gives them info about our unique site visitor’s activity, in order to show them relevant ads.
