COOKIES AND ONLINE TRACKING
We use tracking tools like browser cookies and web beacons to collect information from you. We collect information about users over time when you use this website or any apps that we may make available on our website.
Users of our website are able to verify and grant their consent to the use of tracking cookies during their visit. We use a privacy dashboard to permit users of our website to review and control their privacy settings during the time on our website.
We make the following distinctions between the cookie types in use on our website, and each cookie type is explained below:
- System: these cookies are necessary to ensure the website loads correctly. If these cookies were not set the website would not function. These are permanently enabled.
- Preference: these cookies ensure that choices you make while navigating the website are remembered for when you return to the website. These are permanently enabled.
- Anonymized: these cookies allow us to record information about your visit, the time you spend on the website and other points of interaction. The Internet Protocol (IP) information collected via these cookies are anonymized, and no personal information is shared. These are enabled by default but may be optionally disabled using the privacy dashboard.
Marketing: these cookies allow us to collect IP information from you, this information is shared with 3rd party data processors and allow us to provide relevant offers and promotions after you leave the website. An example of this might be a relevant hotel offer appearing on your personal news feed or timeline of a social media network you use.

The use of such tracking pixels for marketing purposes can be changed at any time via your privacy dashboard which is accessible from this page. You should simply untick the checkbox for “marketing” and these cookies will not be active during your visit.
For your information we would like to highlight that each advertising network may provide additional mechanisms to anonymize your visit when connecting to a website. This stops any data about your visit being shared back to the social media network. For your ease of reference we provide the following link to the popular Facebook social network, where you may review the tracking preferences you have currently set and change them [click here].
