How We Use “Cookies“

Here are our policies on why we collect “cookies“ on our website, and how you can opt out.

One of our policies is that we use “cookies” on our website. Cookies are pieces of information that an Internet site transfers to your hard drive to improve your online experience. The use of cookies is an industry standard — you’ll find them almost everywhere on the Internet. The Rio Nido Lodge bed and breakfast uses cookies to recognize visitors when they return to our sites. Once we know it’s you, we can customize your online visit.

We may also evaluate our content and services and tailor our websites, for visitors, based on other information we collect, such as IP addresses, which are numbers assigned to your computer whenever you use the Internet, pixel tags (or clear gifs), and the type of Internet browser or operating system you are using. This information is collected in the aggregate, but we may tie it to your personal information through cookie use as described above. We use Google Analytics and Adobe Analytics to measure how visitors interact with content on our websites.

We also use Facebook Custom Audiences to ask Facebook to show you ads that are customized based on your interaction with our websites or our Facebook applications and to measure how you interact with those ads. All of these services use cookies and similar technologies, such as web beacons, tags and embedded scripts, to record information about your interaction with our websites. Additional information on how these services use such technologies can be found on Google’s website, Adobe’s website and Facebook’s website. The Google Analytics security and privacy principles summarize how Google protects information collected through Google Analytics. Adobe’s Privacy Policy summarizes how Adobe protects information collected through Adobe Analytics. Facebook’s Data Use Policy describes how Facebook protects information collected through Facebook Custom Audiences.

If you do not wish to have data relating to your visits to our websites collected through Google Analytics, you may opt-out by installing the free Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. You may also opt-out of data collection through Adobe Analytics by visiting Adobe’s Privacy Center. You may opt-out of Facebook Custom Audiences by visiting Facebook’s opt-out page.
