What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their website work, or to work more efficiently, as well as providing reporting information.
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, HORIZON Holidays Ltd) are called "first party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies". Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.
We use first and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Website to operate, and we refer to these as "essential" or "strictly necessary" cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience of our Online Properties. Third parties serve cookies through our Websites for advertising, analytics and other purposes.
What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?
Cookies are not only the way to recognise or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technoligies from time to time. like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"). These are tiny graphic files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail including them. This allow us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to deliver or comunicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to the website from an online advertisment displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
Do you serve targeted advertising?

These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in.
