What are cookies and online tracking technologies?

 

A web browser cookie is a small text file that websites store in your computer's or mobile device's web browser.

 

These cookies store information about the content you view and interact with, allowing for the retention of your preferences and settings, or the analysis of your use of online services.

 

Cookies fall into two categories: 'first party' and 'third party':

• First-party cookies are served by the owner of the domain, which in our case is Magic Travel. Any cookie placed by us is considered a 'first-party cookie.'

• Third-party cookies are placed on our domains by trusted partners, including social media partners, advertising partners, security providers, and others.

Cookies can be either 'session cookies' or 'permanent cookies':

•           Session cookies exist until you close your browser, terminating your 'session,' after which they are deleted.

•           Permanent cookies have varying lifespans and persist on your device even after you close your browser. While we strive to predominantly use or allow third parties to serve permanent cookies with limited lifespans on the Magic Travel platform, we may occasionally extend a cookie's lifespan for security reasons or in exceptional circumstances.

 

Web browser cookies may store information such as your IP address, device ID, browser type, and details about your interactions with digital services. By storing this information, web browser cookies can remember your preferences and settings for online services and analyze your usage patterns.

 

In addition to cookies, we employ similar tracking technologies. Our website, emails, and mobile apps may contain small, transparent image files or lines of code that record your interactions. These include 'web beacons,' 'scripts,' 'tracking URLs,' or 'software development kits' (SDKs):

•           Web beacons, also known as web bugs, tracking bugs, tags, and more, are tiny one-pixel graphic images that can be delivered to your device as part of web pages, apps, advertisements, or HTML email messages. They retrieve information from your device, such as device type, IP address, and visit time, and may serve or read cookies in your browser.

•           Scripts are small computer programs embedded in our web pages, enhancing functionality, and enabling security features and basic interactive features. Scripts can also be used for analytical or advertising purposes.

•           Tracking URLs contain unique identifiers, tracking the website that led you to the Magic Travel website or app you're using. For example, clicking through from a social media page or a search engine.

•           Software Development Kits (SDKs) are part of our app's source code and store data in the app. They analyze app usage or send personalized push notifications, recording device identifiers, in-app activity, and network location.

All these tracking technologies are collectively referred to as 'cookies' in this Cookie Statement.
