We take care to protect the privacy of customers and users of the Destination Online website. Set out below is an explanation of how we process information about visitors to the site.

Collection of personal information

The information which we collect and store during normal use of the site is used to monitor and analyse how parts of the site are used. Such use does not result in any personally identifiable data being collected or stored.

We will not disclose without your consent any personal information we collect about you when you visit the site to a third party outside Capita Travel and Events. In connection with any application, request or enquiry you make, your information will be passed directly to the relevant business unit within the group.

By submitting your personal information through this website, you shall be consenting to it being processed in the manner described above by Capita Travel and Events.

If you have submitted personal information through this website and wish us to cease using it for the purposes submitted, please contact travelandevents@capita.co.uk.

Cookies

We use a minimal number of different cookies on our site. If you do not know what cookies are, or how to control or delete them, then we recommend you visit www.aboutcookies.org for detailed guidance.

The list below describes the cookies we use on this site and what we use them for. Currently we operate an ‘implied consent’ policy which means that we assume you are happy with this usage. If you are not happy, then you should either:

  • not use this site

First party cookies

These are cookies that are set by this website directly.

Google analytics

We use Google Analytics to collect information about visitor behaviour on our website. Google Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on.

This Analytics data is collected via a JavaScript tag in the pages of our site and is not tied to personally identifiable information. We therefore do not collect or store your personal information (e.g. your name or address) so this information cannot be used to identify who you are.

Third party cookies

These are cookies set on your machine by external websites whose services are used on this site. Cookies of this type are the sharing buttons across the site allow visitors to share content onto social networks. Cookies are currently set by Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google+.

In order to implement these buttons, and connect them to the relevant social networks and external sites, there are scripts from domains outside of our website. You should be aware that these sites are likely to be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet, including on this website.

You should check the respective policies of each of these sites to see how exactly they use your information and to find out how to opt out, or delete, such information.

If you would like to restrict the use of cookies you can control this in your Internet browser. Links to advice on how to do this for the most popular Internet browsers are provided below for convenience and will be available for the Internet browser of your choice either online or via the software help (normally available via key F1).
