Cookie Policy

Last modified: May 1, 2018

We recently updated our Terms & Conditions and Privacy & Security Policy. If you browse our websites or use our Service, they apply to you. Please read them carefully. If you see an undefined term in this Cookie Policy (such as "Content" or "Service"), it has the same definition as in our Terms & Conditions.

Instant World Booking uses cookies and similar technologies to help provide, protect, and improve our websites and Service. This policy explains how and why we use these technologies and the choices you have when it comes to your cookie settings.

A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your device (e.g., your phone or your computer). For example, a cookie could allow us to recognize your browser, while another could store your preferences. There are two types of cookies used on our websites: (1) "session cookies" and (2) "persistent cookies." Session cookies normally expire when you close your browser, while persistent cookies remain on your device after you close your browser, and can be used again the next time you access the website.

Cookies may also be categorized as first party or third party cookies. First party cookies are set by the website that you are visiting at that time, either by us, or by a third party website at our request. Third party cookies are set by a party other than that of the website you are visiting. If you visit our websites or use our Service and another party sets a cookie through that website, this would be a third party cookie.

We also use other technologies with similar functionality to cookies, such as web beacons, pixels, mobile identifiers, and tracking URLs, to obtain Log Data (as described in the Privacy & Security Policy). For example, our email messages may contain web beacons and tracking URLs to determine whether you have opened a certain message or accessed a certain link.

WHY INSTANT WORLD BOOKING USES THESE TECHNOLOGIES

We use these technologies for a number of purposes, such as:

  • To enable you to use and access our websites and to facilitate and streamline the functioning of our Service.
  • To better understand how you navigate through and interact with our websites and to improve our Service.
  • To serve you tailored advertising (on our websites and on third party websites) that is more relevant to you.
  • To monitor and analyze the performance, operation, and effectiveness of our websites, Service, and advertisements.
  • For purposes of our own customer support, analytics, research, product development, and regulatory compliance.

THIRD PARTY USE OF OF THESE TECHNOLOGIES

We may also allow certain business partners to place these technologies on our websites, through first and third party cookies. These partners use these technologies to (1) help us analyze how you use our websites, such as by noting the third party services from which you arrived, (2) market and advertise Instant World Booking services to you on both our websites and third party websites, (3) help us detect or prevent fraud or conduct risk assessments, or (4) collect information about your activities on our websites, other sites, and/or the ads you have clicked on. For example, to help us better understand how people use our Service, we work with third party analytics partners, including Google Analytics and Facebook technologies.

Instant World Booking, our third party partners, and advertisers may also use such tracking technologies to display advertisements that we believe are relevant to you and your interests. First and third pary cookies may also be used to measure the effectiveness of these advertisements both on our Service and on other websites and online services. This helps to ensure that you see the most relevant advertisements in the future, both on our websites and on third party websites. Targeting and advertising cookies we use may include Google, Facebook, and other advertising networks and services we use from time to time.

THIRD PARTY SOCIAL PLUGINS

Instant World Booking may use social plugins provided and operated by third parties, such as Facebook's Like Button or Google+. As a result of this, you may send to the third party the information that you are viewing on a certain page of our website. If you are not logged into your account with the third party, then the third party may not know your identity. If you are logged in to your account with the third party, then the third party may be able to link information or actions about your interactions with our website to your account with them. Please refer to the third party's privacy policies to learn more about its data practices.
