We provide you several ways to manage your preferences:

  • Cookie Use and Controls

Cookies serve a wide variety of purposes. Cookies are pieces of data stored in your web browser that are transmitted to websites to remember your browser over time and distinguish it from other users. Cookies are used to personalize your web experience and for security, analytics, marketing, and interest-based advertising. Our cookies are placed and read by our web servers, while other cookies are placed and read by other companies’ web servers. You can block and control cookies using the information noted in the Cookie Policy section. If you block all cookies, certain functionality on our website will not work.

The following settings will control our use of browser cookies, the use of IP address for tracking, and the collection and use of data for cookie-based, interest-based advertising.

[ IN ] Required Cookies. These strictly necessary cookies are used for core functionality, and recognize when you are signed in, remember things such as shopping carts and text entered, are necessary for security, and enforce your privacy preferences. Without these cookies, some functionality on our websites will fail. You can block these cookies in your browser preferences.

[ IN / OUT ] Functional Cookies. These cookies help to improve the sites by allowing us to understand how the site is used and how the site performs. These cookies include analytics and measurement.

[ IN / OUT ] Advertising Cookies. These cookies help us and other parties personalize ads that are shown to you on our sites and Services, as well as on other sites. If enabled, these cookies will allow third parties engaged in interest-based advertising on our site to recognize your browser software on other sites too.

  • IP Address Use

An IP address refers to an identifier assigned by a network to a computer, mobile device, Internet of Things (IoT) device, or routing device. IP addresses, for purposes of this Privacy Policy, include “public” IP addresses, such as the IP address for a home router that is visible to the Internet, as well as “local” IP addresses, which are IP addresses assigned to computers and mobile devices “behind” a router (such as a home router). Our advertising and analytics partners may use IP addresses to group or correlate devices for purposes of analytics, security and anti-fraud purposes, interest-based advertising, ad targeting, ad attribution, and limiting ad frequency.

You can choose not to have IP address used for purposes of advertising or analytics by using the cookie controls for “Advertising Cookies,” and “Performance/Analytics,” above.

  • Web Pixels

Pixels are extremely small image files that, when loaded by your web browser, cause the browser to make a network request to the party corresponding to the pixel. If that party’s cookies are currently stored in your browser, those cookies will be transmitted with the request.

  • Social Network Interaction and Widgets

Social network widgets, buttons, and plug-ins on our websites passively transmit data regarding a social network’s members to that social network, even when a button is not clicked. These technologies may allow a social network (such as Facebook, Twitter or YouTube) to personally identify its members and to know the web pages its members have visited. This is true wherever social network buttons are embedded, regardless of whether a button is “clicked” or “pressed.” If you belong to a social network or use these categories of web services, you should review the privacy policies of those services to understand the nature of the data that they collect and what, if any, options the service offers to control how data is collected and used. If you disable advertising cookies, the passive tracking associated with these buttons will be blocked on our sites.

  • Change Consent Settings for Communication Preferences

Consent for Email Communication: After signing up for email communications, you can choose to unsubscribe using the unsubscribe link in any commercial email we send. If you use more than one Service, then unsubscribing from the emails relating to that Service will not stop you from receiving emails from other Services. Please note that if you unsubscribe from “all emails” this means “all emails other than strictly necessary emails.” You will still receive email communications from us if they are strictly necessary to provide the Cruise Travel Image S.A. service or to confirm or validate a transaction, recover accounts, etc.

Opt-In Mobile Text Messages: You can opt-in to receive promotional, marketing, and special offer text messages from Cruise Travel Image S.A.. Text messages are auto-dialed and consent to text messages is not required for any purchase or service.
