When you visit an EventBank site – as an administrator, member, or visitor – cookies may be placed on your computer by EventBank or a third party. A sample list of cookies placed by EventBank appears below.
A cookie is a chunk of data – typically stored as text file – that is placed on your computer or other device when you visit a particular website. The cookie is used to identify your device to the website when you visit again so the site can load your preferences, automatically accept your credentials, or otherwise personalize the experience. Cookies do not store personal information about you, just information identifying your device.
Within your browser settings, you can choose whether to accept cookies. To access EventBank sites as an administrator, member, or visitor, you need to enable cookies (which most browsers do by default).
You can also separately control whether to accept third-party cookies – cookies placed by third party services that are integrated into the website you are visiting.
For example, third-party cookies are used by Google Analytics for tracking website traffic, and by EventBank to embed its functionality on non-EventBank sites using widgets. You only need to enable third-party cookies if you are using third-party services that require you to do so.
By default, Safari blocks third-party cookies, while Firefox and Chrome accept them. Internet Explorer blocks third-party cookies by default but allows users to accept them from EventBank and other sites. Some firewalls or browser plug-ins may affect your browser's cookies settings.
The following cookies are placed by EventBank on your computer or device to support the operation of your EventBank site.

If you are embedding EventBank functionality on another site using widgets, a technical cookie may be saved to your visitors’ computers or devices if third-party cookies are disabled in the browser. EventBank uses Google Analytics for internal activity tracking, so a cookie from Google Analytics may also be placed on your computer.
We also use web beacons on our websites and in email communications. For example, we may place web beacons in marketing emails that notify us when you click on a link in the email that directs you to one of our websites. Such technologies are used to operate and improve our websites and email communications.
