About cookies

A cookie is a small amount of data (which often includes a unique identifier) that is sent to a user’s computer or mobile phone from a website and is stored on the hard drive of a device. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to report on website traffic. Your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites.

How Origin Leisure uses cookies

Cookies on our website are used in a number of ways. A full list of all the cookies used can be seen in the section List of cookies used by originleisure.com.

i) Analytics
Origin Leisure uses a range of analytics tools to collect information about how people use its sites. This helps us make sure our site is meeting users’ needs and to find out how we could improve.

Analytics cookies store information about what pages people visit, how long they are on the site, how they got there and what they click on. Information supplied by cookies help us to analyse the profile of visitors and provide them with a better experience.

Analytics cookies do not collect or store users’ personal information (for example, names or addresses), so this information cannot be used to identify individuals. Origin Leisure does not allow analytics companies to use or share its analytics data.

ii) Profile management
If you send us a message or request a brochure from us, we use a cookie to remember some personal information you enter. This is used to improve the user’s experience when they return to the site because they do not need to re-enter this information.

Third-party cookies

Third-party cookies are not set directly by Origin Leisure, but by third-party service or functionality providers.

Origin Leisure uses Google Analytics who set cookies on the Origin Leisure website in order to deliver the services that they are providing (for example, website analytics). Origin Leisure does not control the dissemination of these cookies.

Google Analytics stores the information collected by the cookie on servers in the United States.
