What is a cookie?
Why are cookies used?
Web pages have no memory. If you navigate from one page to another on a website, you will not be recognized as the same user. Cookies allow you to be recognized as the same user on different pages of a website. Therefore, cookies are basically used to remember the options you have chosen (for example, to remember the language you prefer or the currency you use). Cookies also ensure that when you revisit a website, it recognizes you.
Do all cookies have the same function?
No, there are different types of cookies and they are used for different purposes. Cookies can be differentiated by function, duration and who stores them on a website.
How are cookies used?
Our website uses the following types of cookies:
- Technical Cookies: We try to offer our users an advanced and user-friendly website that automatically adapts to their needs and wishes. To achieve this, we use technical cookies to show you our website, make it work properly, create your user account, log you in and manage your bookings. These technical cookies are absolutely necessary for our website to function properly.
- Functional Cookies: We also use functional cookies to remember your preferences and to help you use our website efficiently and effectively. For example, we remember your preferred currency and language, your searches and the accommodations you have consulted. These functional cookies are not strictly necessary for the operation of our website, but they add functionality and improve your user experience.
- Analytical cookies: We use these cookies to understand how our users use the website, to detect what works and what doesn’t, to optimize and improve the website and to ensure that our users continue to find our website interesting and relevant. The data we collect includes the web pages you have visited, referring/exit pages you have entered and exited, type of platform you use, date/time stamp information, and data such as the number of clicks you have made on a given page, mouse movements and scrolling, search terms you use, and text you type when using our website. We also use analytics cookies as part of our online advertising campaigns to see how users interact with our website after they have been shown an online advertisement, where advertisements from third party websites may also appear. However, we will not know who you are because the information we collect is anonymous. Our business partners may also use analytical cookies to learn whether their customers take advantage of the hosting offers integrated into their websites.
- Advertising Cookies: We use our own and third party cookies to show you customized ads on our pages and on other websites. This form of advertising is called “retargeting” and is based on activity, such as the destinations you have searched for or the accommodations you have viewed, as well as the prices you have been shown. Advertising cookies may also be used by third parties to display their products and services on our website.

Does Casacervantes.es use third-party advertising cookies and analytics cookies?

Our suppliers are committed to raising consumer awareness and establishing responsible trade and data management standards and practices.
In the context of online advertising and marketing companies, we always try to work only with companies that are members of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) and/or the Interactive Advertising Bureau (IAB). NAI and IAB members follow industry principles and codes of conduct. Both NAI and IAB offer an opt-out feature for behavioral advertising. Log on to www.networkadvertising.org and www.youronlinechoices.com to identify NAI members who have stored cookies on your computer. If you do not want one of the NAI or IAB members to use behavioral reporting programs, just click on the checkbox of the corresponding company you want to opt-out.

Who has access to the information of Casacervantes.es cookies?
Only Casacervantes.es has access to the information of the cookies of Casacervantes.es. Third parties that have stored cookies on your computer will have access to them.
How can you manage your cookie preferences?
In your browser settings (e.g. Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox or Chrome) you can configure which cookies you want to accept or reject. The location of these options depends on the browser, so you can use the “Help” function of your browser to find out where to find them.
If you choose not to accept certain cookies, you may not be able to use some features of our website. We also do not provide support for browser settings that prevent cookie tracking. Turning down an online advertising network does not mean that you will never again receive online ads or be the subject of marketing research. It means that the network you have rejected will no longer show you personalized ads based on your web preferences and browsing patterns.
Does Casacervantes.es use web beacons?
In the same way as with cookies, sometimes Casacervantes.es uses web beacons. A web beacon is a small graphic image of just one pixel that is inserted into your computer as part of a web page request or in an HTML e-mail. We use these pixels, either directly or through our service providers, as part of our online advertisements on our own and third party websites, to track whether a user who views an online advertisement ultimately makes a booking, to monitor the conversion of affiliate websites, and to analyze user traffic patterns and optimize the travel services we offer you.
