6. Cookies

Lisbon-Holiday-Apartments uses cookies on its website. Cookies are small text files that are stored in the cache of your browser to enable later recognition of your browser. We use 'persistent' cookies. They remain on the user's computer to simplify personalisation and registration services the next time you visit our site. Cookies can, for example, store what the user has selected.

The user can manually remove the cookies at any time. We also use 'session' cookies. These do not remain on the user's computer. Once the user leaves the site, these temporary cookies are deleted. By collecting the information, we can analyse the usage patterns and structures of the site. In this way we can continuously improve our services, for example, the content, personalisation and simplicity of the site. Of course you can visit our website without cookies being stored in your browser. You can restrict or disable the storage of cookies in your browser settings at any time. However, this can lead to restrictions in the functionality and usability of our website.


7. Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie concerning your use of our website is usually transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. By activating the IP anonymization on our website, however, Google will truncate your IP address for member states of the European Union as well as for other parties of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to and shortened by a Google server in the USA.

On behalf of Lisbon-Holiday-Apartment, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our website, for compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to Lisbon-Holiday-Apartments. The IP address, transmitted by your browser through Google Analytics, will not be merged with any other data stored by Google. You can prevent Google's collection and processing of data generated by cookies relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB..


8. Google Adwords

We also use the online advertising programme "Google AdWords" and conversion tracking, which is part of Google Adwords. Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service provided by Google Inc. When you click on an advert displayed by Google, a cookie for conversion tracking is stored on your computer. These cookies expire after 30 days, do not contain any personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification.

If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google will be able to see that you clicked on the advert and were brought to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. This ensures that cookies cannot be tracked on the websites of AdWords customers.

The information collected by means of the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. These statistics show the customer the total number of users who have clicked on their advert, and which of those customers have been redirected to a page equipped with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not contain any information that can be used to personally identify users.

If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can object to this usage by preventing the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate setting in your browser software (deactivation option). By doing so, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
