What is a Cookie and Why Do We Use Them?

A “cookie” is a small piece of information sent by a Web server to store in a Web browser so that it can later be read back from that browser. We may use cookies to store some personal preferences for your future visits. Cookies allow us to recognise you more quickly; therefore, your time spent on our site can be more personalised and productive. You’ll find that cookies are an industry standard and are used at most major Web sites in much the same way we use them here at the Astor Court Hotel Site.

We may use third-party site usage tracking companies to analyse your Site visit or to conduct surveys. In the course of serving our pages, these third parties may place or recognise a unique “cookie” on your browser. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, e-mail address or telephone number) about your visits to the Site and other Web sites in order to help us understand how to serve you better.

These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other Web sites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. When you view a web page on our Site that contains advertising provided by one of these third parties, the service provider may place a cookie on or retrieve a cookie from your computer if you have not disabled your browser from receiving cookies.

If you wish, you can prevent cookie files from using (non-personal) information about you by either deleting the cookie folder in your browser or by putting your browser’s Privacy setting higher, but doing so will mean that:

  1. your use of the Site will be adversely affected (and quite possibly entirely prevented),
  2. your experience of this and other sites that use cookies to enhance or personalise your experience will be adversely affected, and
  3. you will not be presented with advertising that reflects the way that you use our, and other, sites.
