Internet Log File Information
When you visit our websites we collect standard internet log information. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to various parts of our site. Information we gather in our standard internet log information does not identify anyone and is only used to statistical purposes including the establishment of visitor numbers, most popular pages and features, and most popular browser types.
Where a cookie can identify an individual via their device, even if identification can only be made via combining the data in question with other data, it will fall within the definition of data laws.
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites when you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as provide information to the owners of the site. Several of the cookies we use are essential for parts of the site to operate, in particular our booking systems. You may delete and block all cookies from our sites, but parts of the site will not function correctly.
All our first party cookies have a life that spans only the length of your session with our website, sometimes shorter, in particular if you are using one of our booking engines. The one exception is the cookie named "CookieSettings" which has a life span of 365 days and necessary to store your cookie settings for this site. The cookies used on this website have been categorised using best practice. A list of all the cookies used on this website by category is set out in the table below.
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies services you have asked for, like shopping baskets or e-billing, cannot be provided.
Strictly necessary cookies are always enabled.
These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
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 web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. They are only used to improve how a website works.
These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.
