ALPHERA d.o.o. for public relations, OIB: 93272581932, from Pula, Gervaisova 42, email:, respects your privacy and undertakes to protect it during and after your visit to this website (hereinafter: the “Website”). In that sense, ALPHERA d.o.o. acts as the data controller (“Data Controller”). This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) provides insight into our procedures related to the collection and processing of personal data.


2. Types of personal data that will be processed

The Data Controller collects and processes your personal data (for example, information that can directly or indirectly identify you, especially identifiers such as your name and surname, email address, IP address, or photographs taken by the official photographer at a festival (“Personal Data”)), when you:

  • are present at a festival that has been marked as an area that will be filmed and photographed,

  • contact us or connect with us on social media,

  • use the contact form on the Website.

The Data Controller shall not collect Personal Data unless you provide it voluntarily, with the exception of certain Personal Data that is collected by the information systems and programmes used to operate the Website, the transmission of which is inherent in the use of Internet communication protocols (for example, your IP address when you use the contact form) and shall not ask for more information than participation in certain activities requires. If you do not want to provide us with Personal Data (except for Personal Data relating to the use of Internet communication protocols that is usually collected when you visit a website), you can still access our Website, but you will not be able to use the contact form.

At the entrance to the festival area, which will be filmed and photographed, you can find a clearly visible privacy policy and a notice clearly indicating that you may be filmed and photographed, which is our legitimate interest since we organize the festival. If you do not want to be filmed/photographed, do not enter the area that will be filmed/photographed. We shall not publish videos and photographs of children (under the age of 16) in which they can be recognized without obtaining the prior consent of their legal representatives.

Visitors/senders provide their information voluntarily and there is no contractual obligation or requirement that the visitor/sender do so. The Data Controller shall not perform profiling based on the collected information - that is, there shall be no automated decision-making.

When we receive photographs and videos from our partners / event sponsors, who have photographed and filmed an event they themselves organized as a part of the Festival, ALPHERA d.o.o. shall act as the Data Processor, publishing photographs on this Website following orders from the Data Controller, in this case the partner / event sponsor, for the purpose of promoting the event organized by the partner/sponsor, so that it can gain media recognition and improve in the future.

This website uses cookies to provide a better user experience and functionality.

On the Website, we use Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager, a web analytics service offered by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”), which uses so-called cookies, small files that are stored on your computer. We collect the log information and information on how many visitors visit specific parts of the Website. Google analyses the use of the Website and the cookies enable us to analyse the visits by assigning a unique randomly generated ID to your device, which allows us to identify it the next time you visit the Website. The lifespan of these cookies is 24 months and they are provided by Google. When you visit this website for the first time, a notice inviting you to give your consent to the use of these cookies will appear on the website. If you give your consent, we will store a cookie on your computer and the notice will not re-appear for as long as the cookie is valid.

When you provide your Personal Data, its use shall be restricted to the purpose for which it was collected in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy. The use of your personal data includes:


  1. taking steps in accordance with your request, e.g. responding to questions and comments you submit through the contact form or on social media,

  2. using your photographs taken at the festival site for the purpose of promoting the Istra & Craft Beer Festival,

  3. the process of investigating suspected fraud, harassment, threats of physical harm or other breaches of the Website policy or any suspicious behaviour that we find impolite.

Providing Personal Data for the purpose listed under A. is voluntary, but in certain situations it is necessary, so the refusal to provide such data can prevent ALPHERA d.o.o. from responding to your requests. Data processing for the purposes listed under B and C is based on legitimate and public interest. If we have received your consent for filming/photographing and publishing videos/photographs, such processing is based on that consent. It is our legitimate interest to film/photograph festival participants for the purpose of promoting the festival so that it can gain media recognition and improve in the future.
