20:1:2. About cookies
A cookie is a small file placed on your computer to collect standard internet log information and visitor behaviour information in an anonymous form. Cookies can be used by web servers to identity and track users (in anonymous aggregates, not individually identifiable users) as they navigate different pages on a website and identify users returning to a website. Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

20:1:4. Blocking cookies
Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies. For example:
20:1:4:1. in Internet Explorer (version 9) you can block cookies using the cookie handling override settings available by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy” and then “Advanced”;
20:1:4:2. in Firefox (version 16) you can block all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Options”, “Privacy”, selecting “Use custom settings for history” from the drop-down menu, and unticking “Accept cookies from sites”; and
20:1:4:2. in Chrome (version 23), you can blocking all cookies by accessing the “Customise and control” menu, and clicking “Settings”, “Show advanced settings” and “Content settings”, and then selecting “Block sites from setting any data” under the “Cookies” heading. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites.
20:1:5. Deleting cookies
You can also delete cookies already stored on your computer. For example:
20:1:5:1. in Internet Explorer (version 9), you must manually delete cookie files (you can find instructions for doing so at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/278835);
20:1:5:2. in Firefox (version 16), you can delete cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Options”, “Privacy” and then “Show Cookies”, and then clicking “Remove All Cookies”; and
20:1:5:3. in Chrome (version 23), you can delete all cookies by accessing the “Customise and control” menu, and clicking “Settings”, “Show advanced settings” and “Clear browsing data”, and then selecting “Delete cookies and other site and plug-in data” before clicking “Clear browsing data”. Again, doing this may have a negative impact on the usability of many websites.

20:1:6:3. Where private information is given
In order to process bookings Euro Tripping is required to collect certain personal details from you. These details will usually include the names and addresses of party members, credit / debit or other payment details and special requirements such as those relating to any disability or medical condition that may affect the holiday arrangements. We take full responsibility for ensuring that proper security measures are in place to protect your information. We must pass some information on to the relevant suppliers of your travel arrangements (hotels, transport companies etc.). Such suppliers may be outside continental Europe if your holiday is to take place or involve suppliers outside these countries. The information may also be provided to security or credit checking companies, public authorities such as customs / immigration if required by them, or as required by law. Except where expressly permitted by the Data Protection Act 1998, Euro Tripping will only deal with the personal details you give Euro Tripping as set out above unless you agree otherwise. We may make contact with you or members of your holiday party by post, e-mail, or telephone for the purposes set out. We will also use your information to inform you of offers in the future or to send you brochures. If you do not wish to receive such approaches in the future then please let us know as soon as possible. If we do contact you by e-mail about our new brochures or special offers, you will also be able to unsubscribe yourself from our database at this time. Euro Tripping will assume that you do not object to being communicated with unless you have previously opted out or contacted us.
