Amadeus Hospitality Cookie Notice

Last Updated: June 2022

In this Amadeus Hospitality Cookie Notice (“Cookie Notice”) you will find information on what cookies are, what cookies may be set when you visit, and how to manage them.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file placed on your device (e.g. computer or mobile phone) when you visit a website.

Cookies are used to make your use of the website easier as well as provide business and marketing information to the website operator.

The term ‘cookies’ includes similar technologies for collecting and storing information, such as Local Shared Objects (commonly referred to as “flash cookies”) and web beacons or web bugs (including transparent or clear gifs).

Types of cookies

There is a distinction between session cookies and persistent cookies, and between first party and third party cookies.

Session cookies allow actions to be tracked during a single browser session. They are deleted from your device when you close the browser. Persistent cookies remain on your device between sessions and allow a website to “recognize” a user on their return, and to remember their preferences. These cookies will remain stored on your device until deleted or when they have reached specified expiry date.

Session and persistent cookies can be either first or third-party cookies. A first-party cookie is set by the website being visited, whereas a third-party cookie is issued by a party other than the website being visited.

They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.

They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.

We may use third-party service providers to perform these services for us, and when this is the case, the cookies may be set by a third-party (third-party cookies) with our permission. The third-party service providers may share information with other parties. These cookies are not controlled by Amadeus.
