Third party links on our Site
Some websites store information in a small text file, called a "cookie" on your hard disk.
Cookies contain information about you and your preferences. For example, if you inquire about rates and availability, the site might create a cookie that contains the details you entered. Or, it might only contain a record of which pages within the site you visited, to help the site customize the view for you the next time you visit.
