Some information is collected automatically every time you visit greenglobetourism.com. greenglobetourism.com collects information about your computer and assigns you a "cookie" (a small, unique identifier text file) when you visit greenglobetourism.com. You do not provide this information-it is collected automatically as a means of supporting your visit to our site. This cookie does not contain any PII.
"Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to recognize you. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. The only personal information a cookie contains is the information you provide yourself. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you prefer, you can set your browser to block them in the future. When you enter personal information on greenglobetourism.com, your personally identifiable information will be linked to a cookie on your computer. Additionally, if you choose, we will also save your greenglobetourism.com password to a cookie on your computer.
These are used to maintain something called session state. If you consider your journey through the site to be a conversation with us and this cookie just reminds the site where we were in that conversation (for instance if at some point in the conversation you asked us to add a tour to your basket, next time you click on the basket it is still there). These are required for the site to function but are not used in any way to identify you personally.
These store a few numbers on your hard drive. You can view them by looking in the cookies directory of your browser installation if you are interested. They last for a long time and each time you come to our site you send us a copy of them. We use them to identify you between visits. For instance if you were looking at tours to Goa last time you were on the site and we have a great tour deal we may use this cookie to recognise you and show you our great deal. They are not required for the site to work but may enhance your experience. We do not store any personal data in these cookies, just a unique number that identifies you to us.
In the course of serving advertisements to this site, our third-party advertiser may place or recognize a unique "cookie" on your browser.
Although you cannot block "session" cookies, as they are required for our site to function correctly, you can configure your Internet browser so that it can reject both "permanent" and "third party" cookies. How you do this will depend upon the Internet browser you use (for example, Internet Explorer 5, Netscape 4 or Opera etc) and it is therefore impractical for us to detail here how you can reject those cookies. Please refer to the relevant Internet browser manufacturer's website where you should be able to receive all the information you need."
