What are Cookies
A cookie is a text-string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your device/computer so that the website can remember who you are. Cookies will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the lifetime of the cookie and a value – usually a randomly generated unique number.
Cookies allow us to identify the computer or device you are using to access our website – we can’t identify you personally.
We use two types of cookies on our website – session cookies which are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the site, and persistent cookies, which remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer. (How long it remains there will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie).
Cookies allow us to obtain technical information regarding users of our site which essentially helps us to provide you with a better user experience and tailor our online services to your individual needs. We may collect information such as your IP address, your online use of our site and your web browser details. This primarily provides statistical information on how our website is being accessed and which parts of our site are being used.
The type of cookies that we use
We will use the following types of cookies on our website:
These cookies allow us to make sure you get the best possible functionality on our site. These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the site and use its features such as search and other online interactions.
These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often and if they get error messages from the web pages. These cookies do not collect information that identifies a visitor to the site. The information collected by these cookies is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.
One of the analytics tools that our website will use is Google Analytics. To learn more about Google Analytics you can visit: www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners
Third Party / Targeting Cookies
These are cookies used by social network channels (such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube etc) which may use information about your visit to target advertising to you when you visit their site.
Third Party Cookies such as these are set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user. These 3rd party cookies allow our carefully selected third party suppliers/advertisers to use the information on your visit to present you with adverts that you may be interested in. These allow us to interact with you once you’ve left our website by showing you adverts that may well help you find the ski holiday that’s right for you.
By using our website, you agree to us using the above types of cookies as set out in the Policy.
