COOKIES

Cookies are used for the website to send certain information to your browser and for your browser to return the information at a later time. We can use this information for things like, authenticating, or identifying a user session (such as a previous hotel search), user preference or any other function that can be completed through storing text data. This kind of function does not include information that personally identifies you.

We also use cookies that record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties such as Google for this purpose.

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. Your browser may have settings so you can refuse cookies. De-activating cookies may mean that you will no longer be able to enjoy the full operational capabilities of the website and you may not be able to see information that is directly relevant to you. For you to get the most from the user experience on the Book Best Rate site or a site powered by us, we collect certain information or “cookies”. What this means is that when you opt for certain preferences we assign you cookies and these are stored on your browser to give you an optimum user experience on our website. This information does not contain personally identifiable information and such as your name, address, email address or telephone number.

Our business is essentially a search engine for hotels. As such we present content and actively engage with trusted third party companies, who in turn, can present dynamic content to our users. Some of our trusted third party business partners use cookies to track when a click becomes a sale. Others use it to serve specific and targeted content.


CUSTOMER PROFILES

As mentioned above, every registered customer has a unique personal profile. Each profile is assigned a unique personal identification number, which helps us ensure that only you can access your profile.

When you register, we create your profile, assign a personal identification number, and then send this personal identification number back to your hard drive in the form of a cookie, which is a very small bit of code. This code is uniquely yours. It is your passport to seamless travel across BookBestRate, allowing you to download free software, order free newsletters, and visit premium sites without having to fill out registration forms with information you've already provided. Even if you switch computers, you won't have to re-register – just use your Registration ID to identify yourself.

We occasionally hire other companies to provide limited services on our behalf, including answering customer questions about bookings or services, sending email and processing event registration. We will only provide those companies the information they need to deliver the service, and they are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.

BookBestRate will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on BookBestRate or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of BookBestRate and its family of Web sites, and, (c) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of BookBestRate, its Web sites, or the public.
