What are cookies?
Cookies are tiny text files stored on your computer when you visit a website. They can be useful in lots of different ways, such as storing your preferences and generally improving your experience of that website. Without cookies, each time you visit a new page, the website will think you are a new visitor. For example, if you are logged in, you will need to log in again each time you move to a new page of that website because the website will not ‘remember’ you.
Cookies are not able to harm your computer and no personally identifiable information is stored in the cookies we create. Your computer will only share the information stored in our cookies with our website – no other website can access that information.
Our cookies do not store any personal information such as your name or address. However, if you’d prefer to restrict, block or delete cookies from private-tours.info, or any other website, you can use your browser to do this. Each browser is different, so check the ‘Help’ menu of your particular browser (or your mobile phone’s handset manual) to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
