  1. About Cookies

A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on a user’s computer (or mobile device) that is created when a user visits a website using a program called a browser (Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox or Safari).

A cookie isn't a program itself and doesn't actively do anything on a user's computer. A cookie cannot be used to identify a user personally, but they do contribute to improving a user's experience of a website.

A cookie simply allows the website to read the contents of the cookie text file. The text file itself simply contains a unique identifier code; the site name and some digits and numbers.


  1. Why are Cookies used?

Our cookies are used to customize the web pages to your use and your settings, as well as to conduct anonymous surveys of user behaviour on the web pages and record the number of visitors. Cookies can also be used for user-targeted marketing in accordance with applicable laws.

Most websites will use cookies in order to improve the user experience by enabling the website to ‘remember’ the user, either for the duration of the visit or for repeat visits.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, such as:

· remembering what items a user may have added to a shopping basket or an itinerary as the user moves between pages on a website

· saving a user's preferences to allow them to customise a website

· measuring what users do on a website to ascertain which parts of a website are popular, how long they spend on a website, how often users return, where they come from etc

We process visitor information, information that the server automatically generates when someone visits our site. This typically includes which pages have been downloaded, time, which page you came from, device type (e.g., iPhone), browser type, and operating system. Visitor information is used anonymously, for the purpose of operating and further developing web pages.

This information is taken from the computer's web browser and may include your IP address, operating system, browser, screen resolution and previous website. We also use cookies to do targeted marketing (e.g. banners, posts in Social Media).

Cookies can be set to remember a visitor for the duration of their visit (session cookies) or to remember a visitor for repeat visits (persistent cookies). Most cookies have an expiration date, and will be automatically deleted after a given period.
