Any appearance of external hyperlinks does not imply that HTZ or its patrons are advertising such external sites, or the information, products or services they contain.

4. Privacy, confidentiality, cookies

Cookies are miniature files that are stored on a computer or mobile device when we visit a website. Cookies allow the website to "remember" visitors' activities or settings from previous visits so that they can be automatically applied during the next visit. In this way, the website already "knows" that you have been here before and in some cases adjusts what you see on the screen. Cookies are most commonly used to remember specific user preferences, to facilitate the input of information already entered during previous visits, to collect analytical data, or for advertising purposes. The www.croatia.hr website uses cookies – a set of data that serves as an anonymous individual identifier – by sending them to your browser and storing them on your computer. Cookies are used to make sure all features of the Website are fully functioning, and provide a better user experience.

There are two types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are temporarily stored on your computer and are automatically deleted after you close your web browser. They are used to obtain temporary information such as the status of your shopping cart in a web shop.

 

Persistent cookies remain stored on your computer even after you close your web browser, but they usually have an expiration date. Such cookies are used to facilitate access for registered users and store information such as usernames and passwords, which enables the "remember me" function during login, so that you do not have to enter your username and password every time you visit the website. Persistent cookies can remain stored on your computer for up to 18 months.

Cookies can also be categorised as first and third-party cookies. First-party cookies come from the site you are currently browsing, while third-party cookies come via ads or through external services from other websites. First-party cookies are used for, in addition to the proper functioning of websites, statistical monitoring of website activity.  Information collected for this purpose includes the user's IP address, browser, language and operating system information, and other standard statistical data which is collected and analysed exclusively in anonymous and mass formats. Third-party cookies are mostly used by advertisers to analyse user behaviour on various websites. The purpose of the analysis is to profile users by demographical data, interests, etc. - which is most commonly used for advertising purposes.

 

But how do cookies actually work?

Cookies store information in the form of "key" and "value" pairs within text files.

For example, cookies may store the language in which you are currently browsing the page. If the language is English, the record will most often look like this: language=en

When you first select your language, the website will create and save a cookie containing language information through your browser. Then, during every subsequent visit, if that cookie still exists, the site will know your choice and show you the content in the language you prefer.

When accessing the site, croatia.hr cookies identify the search engine parameters but not the users themselves. In short, the purpose of cookies is well-intentioned, they are not harmful and do not contain viruses. They provide a better user experience when you browse websites.

 

If you do not agree to the use of cookies, you can easily delete them from your computer (or prevent them from being stored) in your browser’s settings. For more information about managing cookies visit your browser’s pages or  www.allaboutcookies.org.

Because the purpose of cookies is to improve and maximize the user’s experience of using our Website and its processes to their fullest potential, please note that preventing or deleting cookies may disable the Website’s features or cause it to appear and function differently in your browser.

 

5. Statistics

The www.croatia.hr website uses Google Analytics to track user activity for statistical purposes. User activity is monitored to ensure that the Website functions properly and to improve the site and the user’s experience. Google Analytics does not allow user identification, although it does handle some forms of private information such as IP addresses. This is achieved through data aggregation and anonymisation techniques such as IP masking.

 

To ensure a better user experience and plan your future activities efficiently, we use the Google Analytics Advertising Reporting Features tool, which provides insight into the user’s gender, age and interests. This data is based on third-party cookies, it is anonymous and cannot be used to identify users.

Detailed information about this service and the cookies it uses, as well as the user’s options to regulate how their activity is being monitored, is available at: https://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html.

 

6. Links

We are doing everything we can to ensure that all links from our website direct you and/or your child to websites with high-quality content, meaning that they do not encourage negative behaviour. However, websites and web addresses are changing all the time, and we cannot always guarantee the content of every address we direct you to.

 

7. Changes and termination of the Terms of Use

The Croatian National Tourist Board reserves the right to change or discontinue all or any part of this Website and its Terms of Use at any time. Changes take effect when posted at this address or when users have been notified of them. The Terms of Use apply until terminated by you or HTZ. Your termination, possible at any time, signifies the termination of your use of the Website and the cancellation of all use of downloaded materials and content.
