Cookie policy

We use cookies on our website, which amongst other things, help us to improve your experience of our website and to ensure that it performs as you expect it to. Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device by websites that you visit. They can improve your experience of using a website, for example, by remembering your preference settings and tracking your use of a website so that it can be improved to meet your needs.

Websites must get consent to send cookies to your computer or mobile device unless the cookies are strictly necessary to provide services to you.

You can set your cookie preferences when you arrive at our website, or change them at any time. Details on how to do thic can be found at https://www.aboutcookies.org/.

Unless the cookie is a strictly necessary cookie, you can withdraw your consent to our cookies at any time even if you have previously consented. Although, please do remember that if you do not consent to our functionality cookies, parts of our website will not work.

For example, you may not be able to watch our videos. For this reason we will occasionally send you prompts which allow you to consent to a cookie you have previously rejected.

The table below explains what cookies we use on our website, why we use them and whether they are strictly necessary or another type of cookie e.g. “functionality” or “performance” cookies. We also state in the table whether a cookie is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. The difference is that:

  • Persistent cookies remain on your device between browsing sessions. They are activated each time you visit the website that created that particular cookie. For example, where a “persistent cookie” is used on a website to remember your log-in details, you will not need to enter those details each time you visit that website.
  • Session cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when you open the browser window and finishes when you close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

Some of the cookies listed below are those set by our own website when you visit – www.centerparcs.ie. However, we also have cookies on our website that are set by third parties – not Center Parcs. For example, to enable us to have YouTube videos played through our website, YouTube places cookies on its content (for more information about how YouTube uses cookies and what information they collect, visit http://www.google.com/policies/privacy).

Performance cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance, which pages visitors go to most often and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies do not collect information that identifies a visitor. Any information collected by these cookies is anonymous. We only use such information to improve our website.
