What is a Cookie

A cookie is a small text file which is placed on your computer. It provides information to help make the website work or work more efficiently, to recognize your device the next time you visit and to collect information about your website browsing behavior or previous transactions. This information can be accessed either within the same browsing session or at a later date. It depends on the set duration of the cookie.

We use different types of cookies, some of which are essential for our website to work. All data held via cookies does not personally identify you. You can control the use of cookies in a number of ways, including via your browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including ways to adjust your device’s cookie settings, please visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies. Doing so, however, will likely limit the functionality of our’s and a large proportion of the world’s websites as cookies are a standard part of most modern websites

It may be that you concerns around cookies relate to so-called “spyware”. Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive. Learn more about managing cookies with antispyware software.

Please be aware that restricting cookies may impact on the functionality of the Tinna Adventure website.

The privacy implications of this will vary from social network to social network and will be dependent on the privacy settings you have chosen on these networks.

Visitor Statistics Cookies

We use cookies to compile visitor statistics such as how many people have visited our website, what type of technology they are using (e.g. Mac or Windows which helps to identify when our site isn’t working as it should for particular technologies), how long they spend on the site, what page they look at etc. This helps us to continuously improve our website. These so-called “analytics” programs also tell us if how people reached this site (e.g. from a search engine) and whether they have been here before helping us to put more money into developing our services for you instead of marketing spend.

We use:

Advertising Cookies

Cookies are widely used in online advertising. Neither us, advertisers or our advertising partners can gain personally identifiable information from these cookies.

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.

We use:

Remarketing Cookies

You may notice that sometimes after visiting a site you see increased numbers of adverts from the site you visited. This is because advertisers, including ourselves, pay for these adverts. The technology to do this is made possible by cookies and as such we may place a so-called “remarketing cookie” during your visit. We use these adverts to offer special offers etc to encourage you to come back to our site. Don’t worry we are unable to proactively reach out to you as the whole process is entirely anonymized. You can opt out of these cookies at any time as explained above.

We use essential cookies to enable you to browse our website and use its features. Without these cookies, many of the services you may require when using our website cannot be provided.

We also use performance cookies which allow us to analyze how visitors use our website, such as the number of visits, where website traffic has come and to inform how we advertise to customers. This information is used to help us to understand the interests of our users better and therefore make improvements to the site, fix potential problems and tailor our marketing efficiently. These cookies are anonymous and do not gather information that can personally identify you.
