Holiday Cottages in Padstow

Cookies And Privacy


This website is designed to make it easier for you to find holiday cottages, houses and apartments in Padstow and the surrounding area.


This site features a number of holiday cottages, houses and apartments from a range of holiday cottage letting agencies.


Many of these agencies use affiliate marketing to drive consumers to their websites.


What is Affiliate Marketing?

Advertisers and retailers (merchants) use affiliate marketing to drive consumers to their website as part of their sales activities.


Many of these merchants and advertisers are small businesses using affiliate “networks‟ to manage their online sales channels. Affiliates and publishers are essentially their “online sales forces‟ and they use a variety of ways to encourage consumers to a website to make a sale via links generated by a network on behalf of a merchant or advertiser.


These methods include (but are not limited to) search marketing, social media, vouchers, cashback and price comparison. Affiliates are paid on a Cost Per Acquisition (CPA) basis and sales are tracked back to the relevant affiliate through the use of cookies.


For further information on affiliate marketing see www.iabuk.net/disciplines/affiliate-marketing.


Why Are You Telling Me This?

We are telling you this as we want to be as transparent with you as possible.


If you click through to one of the holiday letting agencies or other advertisers from this site and subsequently book a holiday property or purchase some other goods or service, a commission may be paid to the owners of this site by the retailer/merchant.


You will not pay any extra for the goods or service you receive compared to visiting the retailer’s website directly.  In some cases you may even pay less or be offered special promotions.


Do You Use Cookies On This Site?

We do not use cookies directly on this site but the retailers whose products or services are advertised on this site may well.  These cookies are often facilitated by Affiliate Networks who manage the relationship between retailers and website publishers.


A cookie is set when a user clicks on an affiliate link and is redirected to the advertiser's website. The purpose of the cookie is to store information related to the click.


What type of cookies do you use?

Many Affiliate networks use first party tags for tracking the activity of their affiliates and rewarding them on behalf of our advertisers. Their first party tags are used solely to identify when a user has clicked on one of our affiliate's links.


How are the cookies used?

A cookie is set when a user clicks on an affiliate link and is redirected to the advertiser's website. The purpose of the cookie is to store information related to the click.


Why is this necessary?

The cookie is necessary because the information it stores, such as click through time, affiliate identifier, IP address will be combined with information captured at the point of sale to ascertain whether a valid transaction has been driven by an affiliate.


What data file is stored on a user’s terminal?

A standard text cookie is set on the user's machine. It will remain in place for a pre-defined period of time, which is determined by the advertiser.


How do affiliate networks inform the user that cookies will be placed on their terminal?

Their tracking contains a privacy policy and information about how it will be used, which can be viewed within the HTTP Headers.


Who generates the cookie?

The cookie is generated by the retailer or affiliate network, however it will be read as a first party cookie.


Does the cookie enable you to create a profile of an individual’s browsing activity?

No


Is the cookie used to target online ads?

No


Does the cookie save information about a user’s previous activity on the site?

No


How long is information stored for?

Transaction data is stored by affiliate networks and/or retailers indefinitely in order to address any possible historical issues as well as maintain an audit trail. Information stored on a consumer’s machine is according to the set cookie period for that particular programme (e.g. industry standard being 30 days)


How would you describe the intrusiveness of the cookie?

Low (It is generally accepted within the industry that affiliate tracking is low-risk in terms of intrusiveness as it does not capture data about a user's browsing behaviour).


Is any information collected passed to a third party?

The owners of this site do not collect or deal with any customer information.  Retailers & affiliate networks undertake not to pass information to third parties.


Can I control my privacy settings on my website?

If you click ‘Yes please’ this will take you to another pop-up which allows you to control your privacy. You can change this at any time by clicking on the icon which should appear bottom right of your screen.
