What Are Cookies?
Cookies are small files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website to recognise your device the next time you visit. Cookies serve many functions. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyse how well our website is performing, or even allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you.
Cookies contain personal information - i.e. your username if you log into My European Tour. Most cookies do not collect information that identifies you and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our websites, or a user’s general location.

Category 3: Functionality Cookies
These are used to recognise users when they return to the Sites. They remember user choices and enable the personalisation of content.
These cookies allow the Sites to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. They may also be used to provide services such as remembering whether you have already responded to a questionnaire. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
Category 4: Targeting Cookies
These cookies collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising relevant to you and your interests.
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 our permission. They remember which websites or Sites you have visited 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.
