Log info like IP addresses, browser version, and your on-site browsing activity on LiveKrakow.com might also be stored and remembered by this site. On this site, that’s done by the WordPress engine and third-party service providers. They include Google Analytics (for keeping track of statistics), YouTube (when embedding videos) and Booking.com (our accommodation affiliate partner). You can manage your consent to this using the cookies opt-in, opt-out (more on that below).
Cookies are files with small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies are sent to your browser from a web site and stored on your computer’s hard drive.
Like many sites, we use “cookies” to collect information. You can instruct your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, if you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some portions of our Site.
We offer a complete opt-in for all cookies as soon as you land on LiveKrakow.com. That’s a GDPR requirement, and is aimed to help you identify what sort of information and cookies you want to accept as you browse. The cookies we use can roughly be broken into the categories below:
LiveKrakow.com cookies – This Site uses its own cookies. They are there to help the WordPress (WP) content management and LiveKrakow theme to function as it should. WP installs cookies on active user’s computers to remember they have logged in or out. If you leave a comment on a post, this may also drop a cookie on your machine.
Booking.com affiliate cookies – this site is a part of the Booking.com affiliate program. We have Booking.com search modules, direct hotel links, and hotel banners across various pages. They are always sincere recommendations on hotels that we think will make your experience of Krakow and Poland better. Information filled into these boxes might include your hotel destination, a hotel name, your dates of travel. That information is transmitted straight to the Booking.com server, where you can browse suitable hotels. We are able to track the value of commission on bookings made, not specific bookings. Learn more about Booking.com’s cookies and how their used on their own privacy statement here.
Every user is asked to opt in to cookie use when they arrive at LiveKrakow.com. This also sets its own cookie, just to remember your cookie preferences. You can delete this cookie at any time by clicking here.
The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use all acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. We also aim to request and store the minimum amount of personal data from all users – no registration, no details, no email addresses are required to browse this site.
