Cookies Policy

This is the Cookie Policy for The Holiday Tracker, accessible from www.theholidaytracker.co.uk. By accessing The Holiday Tracker website, and/or using the Service, you consent to the use of cookies.

Our Cookies Policy explains what cookies are, how we use cookies, how third-parties we may partner with may use cookies, and further information about cookies.

What Are Cookies

Along with most sites on the modern internet, our site uses cookies, which are small pieces of text that websites can store in your web browser when you visit the site. These pieces of text can then be accessed the next time you visit the site. This enables the website to remember small details about you (for example, that you’ve visited before) and we use this to, hopefully, improve the experience for you.

Why We Use Cookies

We use cookies for analytical purposes and to provide our service to our customers. Analytics cookies help us to build up a profile of how visitors use our website and The Holiday Tracker application. They help us to make the website work as efficiently as possible and provide better content and services in the future. Service cookies allow The Holiday Tracker to keep you logged in while you use the application.

Disabling Cookies

You can prevent the setting of cookies by adjusting the settings on your browser (see your browser Help for how to do this). Be aware that disabling cookies will affect the functionality of this and many other websites that you visit. Disabling cookies will usually result in also disabling certain functionality and features of the site. Therefore, it is recommended that you do not disable cookies.

In order to login to The Holiday Tracker, you must have cookies enabled, as we rely on cookies to enable the login functionality to work.

The Cookies We Set

We use cookies when you are logged in so that we can identify you as you use the application. This prevents you from having to log in every single time you visit a new page within application. These cookies are typically removed or cleared when you log out to ensure that you can only access restricted features and areas when logged in.

We regularly test different versions of our webpage to see if certain elements provide more compelling content to our customers. In order to do this, we employ a practice known as A/B testing. When we A/B test, we display content A to 50% of our visitors and content B to the other 50%. We set cookies to remember if you are in group A or group B in order to display the same content each visit to ensure a consistent experience for you.

We use a cookie to track which pages you visit on our site to help us understand which content is useful to our visitors. This helps us better tailor our future content as we endeavour to provide the best experience possible for our users.

If you use our free Pro-Rata Calculator then we store your email address (which you enter as part of the calculator) in a cookie – this is to save you from having to enter it on subsequent uses of the calculator.
