COOKIES POLICY

When you use any of our services on www.wowgetaways.com ("Website"), we ("STS") may collect information using cookies. This information is used to provide you with a more personalised service and so we can continuously improve our products


What are Cookies?

"Cookies" are small pieces of information sent by a web server to a web browser, which enables the server to collect information from the browser. STS uses cookies for a number of purposes, for instance to enable us to simplify the logging on process for registered users, to help ensure the security and authenticity of registered users, and to enable traffic monitoring.


Overview of our use of Cookies

Non-registered visitors of our Website are sent anonymous cookies to keep track of their browsing patterns and build up a demographic profile.

Whilst you do not need to allow your browser to accept cookies in order to browse much of our Website or to access many of our Services, you must have cookies enabled if you wish to access any areas reserved for registered users.

By using cookies, we can improve our Services and tailor them to your needs and preferences, by collecting information about your preferences. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. You can choose to accept or decline cookies.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of our Website and Services.


Types of Cookies we Use

First-Party and Third-Party Cookies
We use both first-party and third-party cookies on our Website.

First-party cookies are cookies issued from the wowgetaways.com domain that are generally used to identify language and location preferences or render basic site functionality.

Session Cookies
Session cookies are temporary cookies that are used to remember you during the course of your visit to the Website, and they expire when you close the web browser.

Persistent Cookies
Persistent cookies are used to remember your preferences within the Website and remain on your desktop or mobile device even after you close your browser or restart your computer. We use these cookies to analyse user behavior to establish visit patterns so that we can improve our Website functionality for you and others who visit our Website(s). These cookies also allow us to serve you with targeted advertising and measure the effectiveness of our site functionality and advertising.


How are cookies used for advertising purposes?

Cookies and ad technology such as web beacons, pixels, and anonymous ad network tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us collect aggregated audit data, research, and performance reporting for advertisers. Pixels enable us to understand and improve the delivery of ads to you, and know when certain ads have been shown to you. Since your web browser may request advertisements and web beacons directly from ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.

Although we do not use cookies to create a profile of your browsing behavior on third-party sites, we do use aggregate data from third parties to show you relevant, interest-based advertising. We do not provide any personal information that we collect to advertisers. You can opt out of off-site and third-party-informed advertising by adjusting your cookie settings. Opting out will not remove advertising from the pages you visit, but, instead, opting out will result in the ads you see not being matched to your interests. This implies that the ad(s) you see will not be matched to your interests by those specific cookies.


How are third party cookies used?

For some of the functions within our Websites we use third party suppliers, for example, when you visit a page with videos embedded from or links to YouTube. These videos or links (and any other content from third party suppliers) may contain third party cookies, and we encourage you to consult the privacy policies of these third party vendors on their Websites for information regarding their use of cookies.


How do I reject and delete cookies?

You can change your preferences for the STS Website and/or the Websites of any third party suppliers by changing your browser settings. Please note that most browsers automatically accept cookies. Therefore, if you do not wish cookies to be used, you may need to actively delete or block the cookies. If you reject the use of cookies, you will still be able to visit our Websites but some of the functions may not work correctly. By using our Website without deleting or rejecting some or all cookies, you agree that we can place those cookies that you have not deleted or rejected on your device.
