Why do we use cookies?

We use first party cookies in our legitimate interests to make our websites work better. We do not use your personal data collected from cookies for any other purpose. You have the right to object to such processing – please also see below how to disable and block cookies. Third party organisations drop cookies for marketing and related profiling purposes, and rely on consent, which you have the right to withdraw at any time – please see their privacy notices in the table below.

What is a cookie and what do they do?

A cookie is a small text file which sits on your device or browser and assists with information flow and functionality. We use cookies to support our websites. For instance, some cookies help with site security or provide information to help us improve the site. Each cookie stores certain data that allows for specified purposes to be fulfilled.

For example, cookies may store information about how the site is used, including for maintenance and improvement. They simply log numbers and provide grouped information about site navigation – this tells us if people can find what they want.

‘Session’ cookies expire after your visit and are used for various reasons, such as remembering certain information as you navigate from one page to another, so you don’t have to keep entering data.

Cookies which remember things for longer, from one session to the next, are called “persistent” cookies. These cookies can do things like remember your website preferences for your next visit.

Data collected informs when we place adverts

The data collected by cookies may be used (on the basis of our legitimate interests) to market to you. For example, we may also use this data to serve you an advert in your search results on selected partner websites such as in Google.

Further information is available in our privacy notice.

What are first and third-party cookies?

Cookies can be sent by different parties.

Our own cookies are known as first party cookies. When a cookie comes from another site, like Google, it is a third-party cookie, specifically chosen by us for analytical purposes.

Do I Have to Accept Cookies?

You may reject, block and disable cookies. However, site functions may be affected. Cookies help our sites to work properly. You’ll be able to browse our site without them, but some standard functionality and preferences will not work.

By accepting them, you allow us to improve your experience and remember information about you for your next visit.

To withdraw consent, you can reject, block or delete cookies. Please see the section below, managing your cookies, to adjust your browser settings. Please see the link to the privacy policy of third parties to contact them directly to withdraw consent.

Managing your cookies

There are several ways to manage cookies. You can:

  • Set your browser to prevent cookies from being accepted. More information should be in your browser’s “help” menu. How to adjust your browser will depend on which browser you’re using.
  • Set some browsers to send you an alert when a website is trying to place a cookie on your browser.
  • Block cookies by activating the setting on your browser to refuse all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies including strictly necessary cookies, site access and features can be limited or not available.
  • Use an ad blocker to block any of the tools specifically or individually, including Google Analytics.
  • Delete cookies stored in your browser by “clearing cookies”. This will only delete cookies already stored. It won’t prevent new ones being accepted unless you change the acceptance settings. Also, clearing your cookies on one browser of one device does not automatically clear them on another. You need to clear all browsers on all devices, independently.
  • Refuse specific cookies, by using that cookies opt out process, in the table at the end of this notice.

We are not responsible for the content or cookies from external websites. If you follow a link from our website to a third-party site, they will have their own privacy and cookie notice.

It’s important to note that restricting or disabling the use of cookies can limit the functionality of our websites or prevent them from working correctly at all. If you choose not to allow cookies you will still be able to browse the platform, but your experience will not be as beneficial as if you have cookies enabled. Without persistent cookies (see definition below) you will not be able to book a room or manage any existing bookings as cookies are required for these processes to be completed.

How long do cookies last?

Different cookies can last for different lengths of time.

Session cookies last for that website visit. Information is kept from one page to another, so you don’t have to keep entering it. We use session cookies to help improve your experience with us and to support key activities that you want to undertake on our websites.

Persistent cookies are on your browser and may last for a period of time or until you delete them. They can personalise the site and remember information each time you visit. We use them to see how people engage with our site. It helps us change and develop the site and improve your experience of it.

Cookies we use

PWE sites make use of cookies for a variety of different purposes. These include those that:

  • are ‘strictly necessary’ for technical reasons; and
  • allow selected third parties to collect personal data for advertising and direct marketing.

Some of these cookies may be set when a page is loaded, or when a visitor takes a particular action, such as clicking the ‘continue’ or ‘book’ button on a particular site.

Strictly Necessary Cookies support our websites operation. They are essential when you move around our website and use its features. For example, they remember your details when you login. This allows you to access your account. Without such cookies certain services cannot be provided.

Analytical / Performance cookies collect information on how people use the site including the pages visited, which helps us develop these and improve how a site functions. We can see if people find things easily and improve site navigation.

Targeting / Advertising Cookies. These are cookies that record your visit to our sites, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. They collect information about your browsing habits and track the volume of visitors and number of times an advert is displayed and clicks such adverts receive. We will use this information to make our sites and the advertising sent to you and displayed on them more relevant to you and your interests. We may also share this information with certain third-party business partners for analytical purposes such as Google and to enable them (and other parties) to serve personalised advertisements to you. These cookies are also used to limit the number of times you see an advert as well as help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by third party advertising networks or technology providers. They remember the websites you visit and that information may also be shared with other parties e.g. advertisers.

Website cookies

The cookies we use are listed below. To opt out of these please see “Managing your cookies” above. Using an ad blocker enables you to individually block any cookies.

Some third parties will also drop first party cookies, normally ‘session’ ones, onto your device which may not be included in the table below.
