What is a cookie?

Cookies and similar tracking technologies, such as beacons, scripts and tags (together referred to as ‘cookies’), are small bits of text, usually stored on your computer’s hard drive, or within your web browser. Cookies allow a website to identify and remember your actions and preferences over time, such as your language and location preferences, or your login information. They also enable the website to serve you content specific to your interests and preferences.

At WebBeds, we use both first-party and third-party cookies on our websites.

First-party cookies are cookies set by WebBeds. These cookies are generally used to identify your language and location preferences and to render basic site functionality.

Third-party cookies belong to and are managed by other parties, such as other websites or service providers. These cookies may be required to support our advertising and marketing efforts and to enable certain website functions, such as pop-ups, banners, videos or ads.

Session cookies

Session cookies allow websites to track your movements from page to page and are used for several reasons, such as remembering login credentials during a browsing session. These cookies are usually erased when you close your web browser.

Persistent cookies

Persistent cookies are stored on your computer or mobile device between browser sessions for a pre-defined amount of time. These allow websites to remember user information or settings across the site, or in some cases across different websites.

These cookies perform functions such as keeping your site visit secure and remembering you between pages, for example when you navigate from page to page on our websites. Access to certain areas of our websites depends on these types of cookies.

Functional cookies

Functional cookies can be either session or persistent cookies and can be delivered by a first or third party. They remember information such as usernames or language settings and may allow the site to display important alerts. These cookies are not considered necessary, and can be blocked, although this may impact some functions of the website.
