What are cookies?

Cookies are files created by websites you’ve visited that store browsing information, such as your outfit details or login information. There are two types of cookies used by this website: first-party cookies, which are set by The Caravan Club and third-party cookies, which come from services provided by another supplier on our behalf.

Cookies are not dangerous nor viruses. They are small pieces of text, not computer programs, and cannot do any damage to your PC or mobile device.

Why we use cookies

The Caravan Club uses a number of cookies across its website (see the list below for full details). Cookies make your use of the website easier, by remembering your login details for instance. Without cookies, it would be very difficult for The Club to allow you book Club Sites or to fill your basket within The Club Shop.

We also use cookies to monitor your use of the website. This monitoring is completely anonymous. We don’t collect any personal data about you, rather we look at the number of pages you visit and use this information to improve your experience of the site.

We also use cookies to provide you with targeted marketing information, serving you information on products or services we think you might be interested in.

If you would like to find out more about cookies, you can visit www.aboutcookies.org which contains a broad range of information.

Types of cookies

Strictly necessary cookies

hese cookies are essential, as they enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas. Without these cookies, services you’ve asked for can’t be provided. These cookies don’t gather information about you that is used for marketing or remembering where you’ve been on the internet.

Performance cookies

These cookies collect information about how you use a website, for example which pages you go to most often and if you get error messages from certain pages. These cookies don’t gather information that identifies you. All information these cookies collect is anonymous and is only used to improve how a website works.

These cookies are not used to target you with online marketing. Without these cookies we can’t learn how our website is performing and make relevant improvements that could better your browsing experience.

Functionality cookies

These cookies allow a website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you’re in) and tailor the website to provide enhanced features and content for you. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you’ve made to text size, font and other parts of pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you’ve asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymous and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Without these cookies, a website cannot remember choices you’ve previously made or personalise your browsing experience.

Targeting cookies

These cookies are used to tailor marketing to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They remember that you have visited a website and this information may be shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Although these cookies can track your visits to other websites, they don’t know who you are.

Without these cookies, online advertisements you encounter will be less relevant to you and your interests.

How to opt out of advertisting cookies

Cookies are widely used in online advertising. Neither us, advertisers or our advertising partners can gain personally identifiable information from these cookies. We only work with advertising partners who work to accepted privacy standards such as http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/iab-good-practice-principles

You can learn more about online advertising at http://www.youronlinechoices.com . You can opt-out of almost all advertising cookies at http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices although we would prefer that you didn’t as ultimately adverts help keep much of the internet free. It is also worth noting that opting out of advertising cookies will not mean you won’t see adverts, just simply that they won’t be tailored to you any longer.
