Cookies

A cookie is a small piece of data that a Web server places on a user’s computer. Travelzout employs the use of cookies to ensure that you do not see the same ad repeatedly, to track marketing promotions, to estimate and report audience size and traffic, and to customize and personalize your experience at Travelzout.

Furthermore, Travelzout uses outside media companies to display advertisements on our site. These ads may contain cookies, which are collected and tracked by the outside media company. Travelzout has no access to or control over these cookies.

Most Web browsers provide users the ability to limit the use of cookies by allowing users to adjust privacy settings. If a user has their cookies disabled, Travelzout will still be accessible, however some sections of the Site will not perform as well as they normally would with cookies enabled.

Our sites also may use Web beacons (also known as clear gifs, pixel tags or Web bugs), which are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, that are placed in the code of a Web page. We use Web beacons to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our sites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our site from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, and to improve site performance. We also may allow our service providers to use Web beacons to help us understand which emails have been opened by recipients and to track the visitor traffic and actions on our site. This helps us measure the effectiveness of our content and other offerings.

Response to Do Not Track signals

Your web browser may transmit a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) signal to Travelzout and other websites. Because of differences in web browsers’ default settings and the manner in which browsers incorporate DNT signals, it is sometimes unclear to site operators whether site visitors have selected the DNT setting themselves, or whether they are aware that they have a choice in determining the setting. Travelzout does not currently respond to DNT signals. Once the Internet industry has settled on standards related to this issue and Travelzout recognizes such standards, we may reevaluate this approach.

Changes to Our Privacy Policy

  • Travelzout may update this Policy from time to time. We will post any update(s) to this Policy on our websites. All update(s) will be effective immediately on posting.
  • If we make any material changes in the way we treat personal information, we will notify you by including a notice in an email sent to the primary email address in your Travelzoo account or by placing a prominent notice on our Privacy Policy web pages and our home page.
