It will contain anonymous information that helps the website track preferences (for tailored adverts) or the number of visits (with demographic data) that the website has received.

What cookies do we use?
Essential Cookies
These cookies are essential for the running of the website.
Without the use of these cookies parts of our websites would not function. For example, Indonesia Rooms may use cookies to help us identify which of our readers are already registered users.

Analytical Performance Cookies
We use these types of cookies to monitor our website performance and how our users may use it. These cookies provide us with information that helps us provide better services to our users and also to identify any areas that may need maintenance.

Functional Cookies
Functional cookies are used to remember your preferences on our websites. We use functionality cookies to remember your preferences, to remember your name or username, when you comment on an article, and to remember whether you have voted in a poll.

Behavioural Advertising Cookies
We, and our advertisers/sponsors, may use cookies to provide tailored advertising to you which we believe are relevant to you. Online behavioural advertising is a way of providing advertisements on the websites you visit and making them more relevant to your interests. This is done by grouping together shared interests based upon previous web browsing activity. Advertising is then displayed to you when you visit a website which matches these interests. Behavioural advertising is based upon your web browsing activity over a period of time – so it’s different to advertising you may see when you’re looking for something online using a search engine (e.g. Google/Bing) or on the website you may be visiting at a particular time.

As an example, you may be doing research in order to buying books and read a number of different articles on a number of different websites.

If a book manufacturer was part of an advertising network, they may think that you are interested in buying a book(s) and serve you with one of their adverts for one of their books. It is possible that from reading these articles elsewhere, you would see this advert on one of our or someone else’s websites. We cannot control nor do we have access to any cookies placed on your computer by third party advertisers and sponsors. We may also track IP addresses.
