When the user starts the ordering process, his/her personal data will be stored temporarily, approximately for 30 minutes, as described above. Session cookies expire and the collected data are deleted from the temporary database at completion of the ordering process and also if it is interrupted for any reason. If the user intends to submit an order, session cookies cannot be preliminary deleted or removed.

  • Third party companies, organizations and service providers (e.g. Facebook, Google Adwords, etc.) may also initiate placement of „anonym cookies" on the computer of the users when the user visits the websites. Operation of these cookies does not allow GP Ticket access to the information gathered by the third parties, and does not allow the third parties get access to the cookies and the information collected by GP Ticket.
  • „Advertising cookies" - by placing these cookies GP Ticket receives information if a user has seen a particular advertisement and if yes, how many times. Using these cookies allows targeted advertising with useful information provided to the customers and thereby adds value to the websites.

Users may find information from the browser about the cookies set by the website, the length of storage, and may accept or prohibit setting of those. All modern browsers allow the change of cookie settings usually in the 'Options' or 'Preferences' menu of the browser. In such menus, the generic term "tracking" is used to cover advertising cookies.

By changing browser settings, users may achieve that only useful and necessary cookies be set on their devices and prohibit tracking ones. Users might prohibit the placement of all cookies as well.

When optimizing browser settings it has to be taken into consideration that prohibiting certain cookies might hurt user experience and/or prevent the use of a particular website function.
