2. WHAT IS A COOKIE?
3. COOKIES USED ON THE SITE
We use several different types of cookies. In particular, we use the following first party cookies: necessary cookies which allow certain fundamental features of the site to work; functional cookies, which allow us to remember choices you make (e.g. your cookie preference); and performance cookies, which monitor usage of the site.
Some of these are session cookies which are temporary and allow us to link your actions during a browser session. These are deleted at the end of your browsing session. Others are persistent cookies which remain on your device for the period of time specified in the cookie. These cookies help us identify you as a unique user (by storing a randomly generated number).
The site uses first party cookies for the following purposes:
a) necessary cookies
Necessary cookies are essential and help you navigate the site. These cookies make sure your basket is saved during all steps of the checkout process. This helps to support security and basic functionality of the site. These cookies are necessary for the proper operation of our site, so if you block these cookies we cannot guarantee your use or the security of our site during your visit.
b) functional cookies
Functional cookies are used to provide you the best user experience. These cookies are for instances used to save and remind you about reservations you have started to make, so will save you time if you want to complete your reservation at a later stage. These cookies could also recognise if a site user has already signed up for our newsletter/requested information about a service or if the user is seeing a certain page for the first time.
c) performance cookies
Performance cookies help us to understand the behaviour of our visitors and the usage of the site. This allows us to continuously improve the site to provide you the best user experience. These cookies are also used to help us understand what interests our users, and measure how effective our advertising is. Some of these cookies are managed by third parties, and you may refer to the third parties' own site privacy notifications for further information.
By way of example, we use Google Analytics cookies to obtain an overall view of visitor habits and visitor volumes, and to help improve the overall experience on our site. Google Analytics is a third-party web analysis service provided by Google Inc, which uses "performance cookies" and "targeting cookies" to analyse how you use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the site (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, this site uses Google Analytics with the expansion '_anonymizeIp()' which means that Google will truncate/anonymise the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union.
If you do not accept the use of these cookies, we cannot guarantee how our site will perform for you.
