A ‘cookie’ is a small text file that is delivered by a website server onto a user’s computer whilst they visit that website. The cookies can be used at a later time by the website to identify particular devices and thereby remember each specific’s user’s website preferences and log-in details, if a log-in facility is present.

Most cookies do not collect information that identifies the user, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use websites, or a user’s general location.

How London Breeze Film Festival collects cookies

We collect your data automatically via cookies when you visit our website, in line with cookie settings in your browser and your customised cookie settings. We will also collect data from you when you contact us via the website.

We also use cookies to track your activity to help ensure you get the smoothest possible experience when visiting our website.

We may collect information about your computer, including, where available, your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration purposes. This is statistical data about our users’ browsing actions and patterns, and this data does not identify any individual.

Different types of cookies have different purposes and operate for different amounts of time.


  • Session cookies are temporary and expire once the browser is closed or the session ends
  • Persistent cookies encompass all cookies that remain on a computer’s hard drive until they are erased, depending on the cookie’s expiry date. All persistent cookies have an expiry date written into their code, but their duration can vary. According to the ePrivacy Directive (Directive 2002/58/EC), they should not last longer than 12 months, but in practice, they could remain on a device much longer if no action is taken.


  • First-party cookies, as the name implies, are put on a device directly by the website visited
  • Third-party cookies are placed on a device, not by the website visited, but by a third-party such as an advertiser or an analytic system
