What are cookies?

Most websites you visit will use cookies to improve your experience by enabling that website to 'remember' you, either while you are on the website or for the next time you visit. Some websites will also use cookies to enable them to target advertising based on your location and/or browsing habits.

Cookies are tiny text files stored on your computer when you visit a website. They can be useful in lots of different ways, such as storing your preferences and generally improving your experience of that website. Without cookies, each time you visit a new page, the website will think you are a new visitor. For example, if you are logged in, you will need to log in again each time you move to a new page of that website because the website will not 'remember' you.

Cookies are not able to harm your computer and no personally identifiable information is stored in the cookies we create. Your computer will only share the information stored in our cookies with our website - no other website can access that information.

We want to be absolutely honest and clear about the cookies we use and your privacy while using our website. We have provided details of how we use cookies and information on all of the cookies we use to allow you to make an informed decision about whether to continue allowing cookies while using our website. Please bear in mind that should you decide not to allow cookies while browsing audleytravel.com, you will lose certain functionality and features which may make our website less convenient to use.
