Travelzoo, Third Party and Affiliate Cookies

Travelzoo Cookies

A cookie is a small text file placed on your hard disk by a web page server that is uniquely assigned to you.

If you are not comfortable with the use of cookies on your computer, you may set your computer preferences to decline cookies. Note, if you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience all the features of our Online Services.

When you visit and/or sign in to our Services, we use Travelzoo cookies as do certain third parties and affiliates to access your information so that we can customize the content we provide and keep track of your user preferences or participation in promotions sponsored by or offered in connection with Travelzoo.

We use cookies to operate security measures and assist in the identification of possible fraudulent activities.

We work with third parties who use cookies and other technologies to aid in the reporting of aggregate site usage statistics for our websites. These statistics are not linked to personally identifiable information.

Some of our third party advertising partners use "view-through" pixels and other technologies to track the effectiveness of the advertisements and promotions they run on our websites which may lead to the placement of cookies on your computer. Travelzoo does not provide personal information about you to advertisers if you interact with or view a targeted ad. Note, the use of cookies by advertisers on our websites is subject to the privacy policies of those advertisers and is not covered by this Privacy Policy.

Certain ad networks and Travelzoo affiliates use cookies on the Travelzoo network of websites as described below.

Ad Networks

Most advertisements you see on the Travelzoo network of websites are served to your web browser by Travelzoo. However, we also allow other companies, called ad networks, to serve advertisements within our web pages. Ad networks include third party ad servers, ad agencies, ad technology vendors and research firms.

Travelzoo may also include a file, called a web beacon, from these ad networks within pages served by Travelzoo so the networks may provide auditing, research and reporting for advertisers.

Because your web browser must request these advertisements and web beacons from the ad network's servers, these companies can view, edit or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.

Travelzoo "targets" some ads to users that may fit a certain profile – for example, men interested in some flying routes. Travelzoo does not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad within Travelzoo products and services. However, when you view or interact with an ad the possibility exists that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad.

We may partner with a third party ad network to either display advertising on our website or to manage our advertising on other sites. Our ad network partner uses cookies and web beacons to collect non-personally identifiable information about your activities on this and other websites to provide you targeted advertising based upon your interests. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you targeted ads, you may opt-out by clicking here. Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive generic ads.

Travelzoo Affiliates

Travelzoo may allow certain Travelzoo affiliates to include web beacons within pages served by Travelzoo. These affiliates aggregate information about our advertising and provide auditing, research and reporting for our advertisers. None of the personal identifying information you have provided to Travelzoo is shared with our advertisers or our affiliates as part of this program.
