A cookie is a text file stored on your computer or mobile device. Cookies store bits of information that we use to help make our website work. They can't run any code and don't contain viruses. Cookies contain basic information about your internet use, but they do not normally identify you personally.
The types of cookies used are:
Session cookies are used temporarily to preserve the state of your activity between pages, such as passing your choices in a form to the next page. These cookies are transient and do not stay on the user's computer. They are not visible to anything except your browser and are not passed on anywhere else. Once the user leaves the site, this temporary cookie is deleted. Using the information gathered, we can analyze usage patterns and structures of the site. In this way we can improve our services further and further, such as by improving content, personalization and making the site easier to use.
Persistent cookies are used to record information about how our site gets used. They only collect anonymous data on the pages people visit, and are not used to identify visitors personally. They remain on the user's computer to simplify personalization services the next time our site is visited. Cookies can store for example, what the user has selected. The user can always manually remove 'persistent' cookies.
We also use other technologies with similar functionality to cookies, such as web beacons, pixels, clear gifs, mobile identifiers, and tracking URLs, to obtain log data. For example, our email messages may contain web beacons and tracking URLs to determine whether you have opened a certain message or accessed a certain link.
We may also allow third parties and certain business partners or affiliates to place these technologies on the allChalets site. These partners use these technologies to (1) help us analyse how you use the site, (2) market and advertise services to you on the allChalets website and third party websites, (3) help us detect or prevent fraud or conduct risk assessments, or (4) collect information about your activities on the allChalets website, other sites, and/or the adverts you have clicked on. For example, to help us better understand how people use the allChalets site, we work with a number of analytics partners, including Google Analytics.
Third parties may also use such tracking technologies to serve adverts that they believe are most likely to be of interest to you and measure the effectiveness of their adverts both on the allChalets site and on other websites and online services. Targeting and advertising cookies we use may include Google, and other advertising networks and services we use from time to time.
