This includes the date of the transaction, payment information, such as your credit or debit card number and other card information, and other account and authentication information, as well as billing and contact details.
We may receive Personal Information from other sources. For example, if you connect your social media account(s) to your customer account, the social media site may share information with us about your use of their services, including information about your profile, contacts, and viewed or liked content. We encourage you to read the applicable privacy policies for your social media accounts. We shall have no responsibility for the data collection and use practices of those social media websites.
Holiday Group and its service providers also collect certain non-Personal Information, data that does not identify you as an individual. This information tells us about how people use the Site so that we can analyze their effectiveness and provide you with a better web experience. We collect and use this information through a variety of technologies, including “cookies” and analysis applications, as discussed below.
(a) Server Information
Like every website, Holiday Group’s servers automatically and temporarily store the following information in the server log files. This information is provided by your browser, unless you have deactivated the function.
• IP address of the enquiring computer • File query by the client • The http response code • The Internet page from which you visited us (referrer URL) • The time of the server query • The browser type and version • The operating system used on the enquiring computer
The server log files may be periodically analyzed to measure the traffic through our servers, the number of pages visited, and the level of demand for pages and topics of interest. The server log files are not analyzed with respect to individuals. At no time can this data be attributed to specific individuals.
(b) Site Visit Tracking Technologies
A cookie is a unique alphanumeric identifier that websites use to help identify the number of unique visitors to a website, whether or not those visitors are repeat visitors, and the source of the visits. Cookies cannot be executed as code or used to deliver a virus and thus pose no threat to you. Servers and websites other than the one placing the cookie on your hard drive cannot read the cookie, and no Personal Information can be gathered by other servers from the cookie. If you prefer not to enable cookies or to disable them, you may do so through your web browser’s security settings. Please note that certain features of the Site may not be available once cookies have been disabled.
Like most websites, the Site gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (“IP”) addresses, browser type, operating system, internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, date/time stamp of access, and clickstream data. When you visit the Site, the servers automatically log your IP address, the time and duration of your visit, and the time and duration spent on the pages of the Site which you view. If you arrive at the Site by clicking a paid advertisement or a link in a communication, then the server will capture information that tracks your visit from that link. If you arrive at the Site by clicking on a non-paid source, such as a search engine result or link on another website, the server may capture information that tracks your visit from that source, to the extent available.
Some of Holiday Group’s communications to you may contain a “click-through URL” which links to content on the Site. When you click one of these URLS, it passes information through the Holiday Group web server before you arrive at the destination web page. Holiday Group tracks this click-through data to help determine interest in particular products and measure the effectiveness of our communications. If you prefer not to be tracked, simply avoid clicking text or graphic links in e-mails you receive from Holiday Group.
Holiday Group may also use web beacons or pixel tags, which are tiny invisible graphic images, in the Site. Web beacons and pixel tags may be used by Holiday Group to count users who have visited its webpages and for related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity).

We may associate your device identifiers or phone number with your customer account information.
Information collected from your different devices may be associated with information about your order history, the products you view on the Site, and how you use the Site. We may also use your device information to identify and prevent fraudulent account activity, including access to your account from an unauthorized device.
