Cookies Policy

Our websites and applications use cookies and other tracking technologies for various purposes such as the proper functioning of the Obviousbook.com website, page traffic analysis or advertising purposes. These technologies are either used directly by us or our business partners, including third-party providers and advertisers with whom we work. If you want to know more about what cookies are, how they are used and your options, please read more here.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small amount of data that is placed in the browser of your computer or mobile device. The cookies of the original manufacturer are the cookies of the entity that manages the domain through which the cookie is placed. Thus, Obviousbook.com cookies are considered original cookies. In cases where we allow others to place cookies through the websites and applications of Obviousbook.com these are called third party cookies.

In addition, there is a difference between what we call session cookies and persistent cookies. One session cookies work until you close your browser. Permanent cookies have a longer lifespan and are not automatically deleted when you close your browser. We try to use cookies or allow the use of cookies with a maximum lifespan of 5 years. Only in exceptional cases, such as for security reasons and only if absolutely necessary will a cookie last longer than this.

In addition to cookies, we use other similar tracking technologies. These may include web beacons (also known as pixel tags, web bugs or gifs), URLs or software development kits (SDKs). The web beacon is a very small graphic image of just one pixel delivered to your computer either as part of a web page request or as an HTML email message. Pixels can be used to retrieve information from your device such as device type or operating system, IP address and visit time. They are also used to place and read cookies from your browser. Tracking URLs are used to understand which referral sites the Obviousbook.com websites or applications use. SDKs are small pieces of code included in applications that act as cookies and web beacons.

All of these technologies are collectively referred to in this Cookies Policy as “cookies”.

 

How are cookies used?

Cookies serve different purposes. Recognize the user ID on different pages of a website or even between different websites or when using an application. Categories of information we collect through cookies include IP address, device ID, pages you viewed, browser type, browsing information, operating system, ISP, timestamp, whether you responded to an ad, the relevant URL, the features used or the activities you participated in the website / applications.

Our website and applications use cookies for different purposes:

Technical cookies: we try to offer our visitors an advanced and easy-to-use website that automatically adapts to their needs and desires. To achieve this we use technical cookies to properly display our website to you, to work smoothly, to be able to create a user account, log in and manage your bookings. These technical cookies are absolutely necessary for the proper operation of our website.

Functional cookies: we also use cookies to remember your preferences and to help you use our website and applications correctly and effectively. If you use Obviousbook.com websites and applications to search for a Trip, for example, these cookies memorize the currency and language you prefer, your searches, and the Travel Providers you see. We may also use cookies to remember your registration information so that you do not have to enter your login information every time you visit our website. Passwords, however, will always be encrypted. These functional cookies are not absolutely necessary for the operation of our website or applications, but enhance its functionality, thus improving your experience at Obviousbook.com.

Cookies for statistical analysis: we use these cookies to better understand how visitors use Obviousbook.com. That is, to learn what works and what does not, to optimize and improve our website and applications, to understand the effectiveness of advertising and communications, and to ensure that it is still an interesting and up-to-date website. The data we collect includes the web pages you have viewed, the login / logout pages you logged in and out of, the type of platform you used, the emails you opened that led to actions and date and time information.

It also means that we can use information such as your website traffic, number of clicks on a particular page, your mouse movements and number of scrolls, the search terms you use and the text you type in the various fields. We also use cookies for analytics purposes as part of our online advertising campaign to learn how users interact with our website or applications when they see an online ad, which may include third-party website ads. Our business partners can also use analytics cookies to find out if their customers are using their lodging offers contained on their websites.

Advertising cookies: in addition to our own, we use third party cookies both on our websites and on the websites of other parties. This is called “retargeting” and is based on your browsing activity, such as the destinations you are looking for, the accommodation and the prices you have seen.
