What are cookies?
A cookie is usually a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer, smart phone, tablet or other electronic device. However, they can take a number of different forms, such as pixels, plugins, tags scripts and combinations of these technologies to allow ‘device fingerprinting’. Cookies use information that is transferred to or read from your device’s hard drive. Some cookies may collect personal data about you. You can find out more information about cookies and pixels on the Information Commissioner’s Officer (ICO) website (www.ico.org.uk).
First Party and Third-Party Cookies and Pixels
Some cookies and pixels are referred to as “first party” which means they are placed by the website you are visiting – so in our case first party cookies and pixels are placed by Hospitality Connect’ own website. “Third party” cookies and pixels are placed by other organizations (with our permission) via the Hospitality Connect online website, such as advertisers and social media platforms. They work by collecting information from your device and passing it directly back to the third party.
We want you to understand the different types of cookies that are used on our website. These may be set by us, or by third parties who provide functionality embedded in or connected to our website. We use a variety of types of cookies for the following purposes:
- Strictly necessary (essential) cookies: these are cookies strictly necessary for the provision of our website to you, for example, cookies that enable website content to be delivered securely and efficiently. Without these cookies, the website may fail to operate properly.
- Functionality cookies: these cookies are used to recognize you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalize our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region, search preferences, or your login details, if you choose this). Without these cookies, some parts of the website may not work as we intend them to.
- Targeting & advertising cookies (including ad measurement): these cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests, both on and off our website. 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. These cookies are usually placed by trusted third parties (such as advertising networks) who we have a relationship with. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organizations such as advertisers. These third parties combine data that we share with them with data from other sources, such as their own websites. This combined data can then be used to ensure that we can better target our visitors with advertisements for roles on our website that are more relevant to you and others. For more information, visit www.youradchoices.com. Please note that by opting out of receiving targeted advertisements on one browser, device or app will not necessarily opt you out of all such adverts from all browsers, devices or apps.
You can find more information about the individual cookies we use on our website and the purposes for which we use them in the table at the end of this policy.
