Cookies are simply small files that have a unique number that is placed on your device and work as internal memory when you visit or interact with a website. Cookies are widely used in order to make websites function properly, or more efficiently, as well as providing information to the owners of the site and optimising your user experience.
Cookies are a standard piece of software that is widely used on websites. As previously stated, cookies are small text files that are added to your browsers internal memory and are used to keep track of interactions with websites. Most browsers such as Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer accept cookies automatically.
Cookies allow us to identify the computer or device you’re using to access our website – but we can’t identify you personally. Typically, cookies only contain two pieces of information: a site name and unique user ID, and this software does not collect any personal information such as name, address or email. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors to our website, to see how visitors move around the site when they’re using it, as well as the date and time. Like most other websites you will visit, we collect this information automatically.
The cookies we use also allow us to distinguish you from other users of the website which helps us to provide you with the best experience when you browse and search for trips on our website. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example; by making sure users are finding what they need easily.
At no time is your private cookies data shared with third parties. If you wish to stop cookies working on your device you can turn them off in your browser.
