You can learn more about online advertising at www.youronlinechoices.com You can opt-out of almost all advertising cookies at www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices although we would prefer that you didn't as ultimately adverts help keep much of the internet free. It is also worth noting that opting out of advertising cookies will not mean you won't see adverts, just simply that they won't be tailored to you any longer.

The following may be used on our website:

  • DoubleClick (owned by Google) and Google Ad Words

Affiliate Advertising

One type of advertising we may run on our website is affiliate advertising.  This form of advertising means that if you are shown and click on an advert on our site and then you perform an action such as a purchase or a booking we are paid a commission on that sale.  These commissions help us to keep our website going and make it free to use for our users.

The company we work with to facilitate our affiliate advertising is called Affiliate Window.  Affiliate Window will place Tracking and Targeting Cookies on your computer.  The individual merchant advertisers (i.e. the company whose advert you see) will also place Cookies on your computer. 

Typically the Cookies placed will expire in 30 days or less.

The Cookies which will be placed on your computer by Affiliate Window are:

Tracking cookies set when you see one of the Affiliate Ads to record which Ads you have seen and also set when you click on one of the affiliate links on our website and used to let Affiliate Window and the advertiser know the website from which you came. 

Targeting cookies are set when you see an ad and used to let the advertiser and Affiliate Window know where you were when you saw it.  They are also set when you click on an Affiliate link and are used to let the advertiser and Affiliate Window know the website from which you came

The data held by these cookies are - an id for the ad you've seen, an id for our website, an id for the ad on which you clicked, an id for the group of ads to which the ad belongs, the time you saw the ad, the time you clicked, any reference we have added to the click, an id for the type of ad, an id for the product, an id for the advertiser site you visited

The Cookies which will be placed on your computer by Advertisers are:

Our partners include:
