Cookies on this website

What are 'cookies'?

Cookies are small files which are stored on a user's computer. They are designed to hold a small amount of data specific to a particular client and website, and can be accessed either by the web server or the client computer. They allow websites to store things like user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a 'memory' for the website, so that it can recognise you when you come back and respond appropriately.


How does this website use cookies?

We make use of the following types of cookie:
  • Site performance cookies
  • Anonymous analytics cookies
  • Registration cookies
  • Third party advertising cookies

Site performance cookies

This type of cookie remembers user preferences for this website, so you don't have to re-set them each time you visit. Examples include:
  • Hotel reservation dates
  • Number of nights you planning to stay at a hotel

Anonymous analytics cookies

Every time someone visits our website, software provided by another organisation generates an 'anonymous analytics cookie'.
These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before.
Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies and, if you don't, it will generate new ones.
This allows us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site.
We cannot use these cookies to identify individuals. We use them to gather statistics, for example, the number of visits to a page, type of information people searching on our website, etc.
Using this analysis we can improve information appearing on our website and provide better services for our users.

 

Registration cookies

When you register with our website, we generate cookies that let us know whether you are signed in or not. Our servers use these cookies to work out which account you are signed in with, and if you are allowed access to a particular service.

 

Third party advertising cookies

The advertisements you see on our website are provided by other organisations. Some of these organisations use their own anonymous cookies to track how many people have seen a particular ad, or to track how many people have seen it more than once.
The companies that generate these cookies have their own privacy policies, and we have no access to read or write these cookies.

 

Other third party cookies

On some pages of our website, other organisations may also set their own anonymous cookies. They do this to track the success of their application, or to customise the application for you. Because of how cookies work, our website cannot access these cookies, nor can the other organisation access the data in cookies we use on our website.
