Cookies Policy

We are committed to collecting, using and storing your data responsibly and in accordance with the applicable privacy laws. This Cookie Policy (“Policy”) describes the different types of cookies and similar technologies that we use on our Website americantourister.at (“Website”).

To the extent any personal data is processed through cookies or similar technologies, our Privacy Policy applies and complements this Policy.

A. What are Cookies?

In order to make our Website easier to use and navigate, we sometimes place small data files on your computer or mobile device. These are known as cookies. They enable our Website to store a user’s configuration and preferences (e.g. login credentials, language preference, font size, display settings, etc.) over a certain period, so you do not have to keep re-entering information whenever you revisit our Website or browse between pages.

In most cases, websites will use cookies to improve your user experience by allowing that website to “remember” you, either for the duration of your visit (“session cookies”) or for repeat visits (“persistent cookies”).

Cookies serve various purposes, like allowing you to navigate efficiently between pages, storing your individual preferences, remembering your shopping cart and generally improving your experience on our Website. Furthermore, cookies make your interaction with our Website easier and faster. Without their use, our Website would consider you a new visitor every time you move to another page (for example, when you are logged in and move to another page, it would not recognize you and you would have to re-enter your login details).

Most browsers are set to accept cookies automatically. Nonetheless, if you wish, you can block or delete cookies (for details see section C). However, if you do so, some parts and/or functionalities of our Website may no longer work properly.

B. Which Cookies are used?

Cookies may originate from two different sources. They are either directly set and used by us (“first party cookies”) or they may be set and used by third parties (“third party cookies”). Third party cookies may “follow” you through various websites and for a longer period. Parties placing these cookies may be suppliers with whom we cooperate to deliver our Website, companies that participate with us in affiliate marketing programs and other parties. For example, social media cookies (such as YouTube or Facebook cookies) that collect information about social media usage. We use social media cookies to integrate social media sharing tools into our Website and to measure the effectiveness of these sharing tools. We use third party cookies to help us analyze our Website and its use, and to enable tailored advertising.

Our Website uses three types of cookies, depending on their functionalities and purpose:
