Cookies

We collect your IP address when you visit our site. This only identifies your ISP (Internet Service Provider) and does not contain any information about you as an individual. We use this information to help us understand more about where our site traffic originates.

Our website uses cookies. A cookie is a small text file that is stored by your browser, and allows it to remember information between web pages and browser sessions. We use a number of “first party” cookies – generated and used by the Economy Rent a Car website – and some “third party” cookies – generated on our site by third parties. They enable us to remember each part of your reservation as you go through the site, remember your customer details and display appropriate content based on your selected options and journey. They also help us to understand user behaviour within our site, which means we can make the experience better for you.

Cookies can only store text, which is always anonymous and usually encrypted. Economy rent a car will never store any personal information in a cookie.

 

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files generated by websites that you visit holding session data that may be of use later in the site. The data allows the site to maintain your information between pages, and also to analyse the way you interact with the site.

Cookies are secure – they can only store information that is put there by the browser, which is information the user has entered into the browser or that is included in the page request. They cannot run code and they cannot be used to access your computer. If a website encrypts the information in the cookie, only that website can read the information.

There are two different types of cookies: Session and Persistent. They are used for different things and contain different information

Session cookies contain information that is used within your current browser session. These cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Nothing is persisted on your machine beyond the time you spend on the site.

Persistent cookies are used to hold information that is used between visits. This data allows sites to recognise that you are a returning customer and react accordingly. Persistent cookies have a lifetime value that is set by the website, which can vary between a few minutes or several years.

 

Why use cookies?

Cookies are used by the site to keep your session as you progress through the site, keeping track of your reservation details and whether you’ve logged in. They are used to display relevant products within your journey.

These cookies do not store personal information enabling other sites to identify you, they are based purely on the browsing history.
