Types of cookies

The length of time for which a cookie stays on your device depends on its type. We use two different types of cookies on our websites.

Session cookies are temporary cookies which exist only during the time you use the website and are deleted when you close the browser after using the website. Session cookies help our websites remember what you chose on the previous page, when booking our services for example, avoiding the need to re-enter information.

For example, if you tick the ‘Remember my ID’ box when you log in to our loyalty program a persistent cookie will be used so that the site remembers you for the next time you try to log in. Persistent cookies help us identify you as a unique visitor but don’t contain information that could be used to identify you to another person.

Cookies in emails

As well as the cookies we use on our websites, we use cookies and similar technologies in some emails. These help us to understand whether you’ve opened an email and how you’ve interacted with it. If you have enabled images, cookies may be set on your computer or device. Cookies will also be set if you click on any link within the email. The types of cookies we use are:

Web beacons: tiny, invisible images placed in emails to tell us whether you’ve opened them (and if so how often), how you interacted with them (for example the time you spent reading the email), which email software and web browser you used, which device you used and your IP address. We also use web beacons to help us display emails in the best format for your device.

Link tracking: our emails may contain a number of hyperlinks, each of which has a unique tag. When you click on one of these links the mailing company logs the click so that we can understand who has clicked through from an email to our website. We use this information to personalise future messages to you.

Cookies: our process for delivering emails may cause cookies to be set when you download images or when you click on a link.

Making choices about cookies

If you don’t want to accept cookies from our emails, you can close the email before downloading any images or clicking on any links. You can also set your browser to restrict or reject cookies. These settings will apply to all cookies on websites and emails.

In some instances, depending on your email or browser settings, cookies in an email may be automatically accepted (for example, when you’ve added an email address to your address book or safe senders list). Please check your email browser or device instructions for more information on this.
