Flow Festival does not gather information on website users via cookies. However, we have embedded a few carefully chosen third-party tools on our website, and they may save cookies on your browser.
With the tools provided by third parties – Google Analytics, Google Ads and Facebook Pixel – we can collect information that can help us direct Flow Festival marketing to the right demographics on other sites, such as Facebook and YouTube.

Social media plugins
Our website may contain so called social media plugins. When a visitor visits our website, a link is formed between the visitor’s browser and the server of the provider of the social media plugin. Due to the link, the visitor’s browser may automatically transfer data relating to the website visitor to the social media plugin provider in question, e.g. the visitor’s IP address and the information that the IP address in question has visited our website.
If the website visitor opens the social media plugin while he/she is logged into his/her user account in the social media platform in question, the content of our website may be linked with the user’s user account in that platform. In that case, the service provider in question may be able to connect the visitor’s visit to our website with the visitor’s personal user account in the social media platform in question.
