Cookies can only store text, which is always confidential and in most cases encrypted. WEP will never store any personal data in a cookie.
Cookies are small text files that are generated by the websites you visit, which allow you to keep data that may be useful later. This data helps keep your information between pages and also helps analyse the way you interact with the site.
Cookies are secure; they can only store information that is made available by the browser, information that the user has previously entered in the browser or that is included in page requests. They cannot execute code or be used to access your computer. If a website encrypts information contained in a cookie, only that website may read that information.
There are two types of cookies: temporary and persistent. Temporary cookies contain information that is used within your browsing session. These cookies are automatically erased when you close your browser. Nothing is kept on your computer once browsing is complete.
Persistent cookies are used to store information that is used between visits. This data allows sites to recognise that you are a repeat customer and adapt accordingly. Persistent cookies have a long-term value that is defined by the site and can vary from minutes to years.
Cookies are used by the site to keep information about your session while you browse the site and details of your booking options and to check if you are logged in. They are used to display relevant products.
Web analytics cookies from our Google partner allow us to track customer interaction across the site. This gives us valuable insight that allows us to improve the site, as well as the products and services we offer.
All web browsers allow you to limit the behaviour of cookies or disable them in browser settings or options. The steps to follow are different for each browser; you can find instructions under the "Help" menu of your respective browser. You can also view the cookies on your computer and delete them through the browser.
Cookies are text files, meaning you can open them and read the content. The data contained inside is often encrypted and corresponds to a web session so that they only make sense for the website that wrote them.
If you disable cookies, the WEP site will not be able to create a booking. Disabling cookies will also affect the tracking of your progress across the site but will not prevent the Google Analytics code from recognising your visit.
The temporary cookies created by WEP include data used by the web server that processes your session, your authentication status and the details of your booking.
Persistent cookies that are created by the WEP website are used by our Google partner. They help to recognise site traffic that most often corresponds to recurring users rather than new customers. The information that is stored is used to display appropriate ads on other sites on our behalf. Deleting these cookies will not affect your experience or the functionality of the WEP site.
