What is a Cookie?
Thank you for using our corporate platforms (or Platforms). Your trust is the most important value to us, that is why in this Cookies Notice we are going to show you all the information you need to know regarding Cookies. The only thing you have to do is read it along with our Privacy Notice for a better understanding, and if you have any questions related to it, you can tell us about it here.
After that, you’re all set to start your new career at eDreams ODIGEO.
By Cookies we mean any technology that stores data on a user’s device or gains access to data on a user’s device.
This Cookies Notice explains how and why we use these technologies and the choices you have.
Cookies allow us to remember certain information about you for multiple purposes, such as delivering the functionalities of our Platforms, service improvement, and business development, online advertisement, marketing analytics, information security, fraud prevention and sharing information with metasearch engines.
Specifically, a Cookie is a small text file that a platform stores on your computer or mobile device when you visit our Platforms.
Other similar technologies
Along with Cookies, our Platforms may contain lines of code or small transparent image files that record how you interact with them. These include “web beacons,” “scripts,” “tracking URLs” or “software development kits” (SDKs).
- Web beacons is a tiny graphic image of just one pixel that can be sent to your device as part of a request on our Platforms. They are also called web bugs, tracking bugs, tags, web tags, page tags, tracking pixels, pixel tags, 1×1 GIFs or transparent GIFs.
They can be used to retrieve information from your device, such as device type and operating system, IP address and time of visit. They are also used to execute and read Cookies in your browser or to place a Cookie.
- Scripts are small computer programs embedded in our Platforms that provide them with a wide variety of additional functionality. Scripts are used to make our Platform work properly. For example, they activate certain security features and enable basic interactive functions on our Platform.
Scripts may also be used for advertising or analytical purposes. For example, a script may collect data about your use of our Platforms, such as the sites you visit or what you search for.
- Tracking URLs are links with a unique identifier. They are used to find out from which Platform you have accessed us. For example, if you click from a social network, a search engine or a website of one of our affiliates.
All of the technologies described above are collectively referred to as Cookies.
- Email pixels are not considered Cookies because they do not store data on your device. A “pixel” is an electronic file the size of a single-pixel that is embedded in the e-mail and loads when you open it. By using email pixels, we can know if the email was delivered, if and when you read it, and where you clicked. This can help us understand if there have been any technical problems, if the communication is relevant to our audience, etc.
We also receive this information about the push notifications we send you. These statistics give us information about your reading behaviour, which we then use to optimize our messages and make our communications more relevant to you.

Technical Cookies. These Cookies are essential or necessary for the Platform to function and cannot be disabled on our systems. They are usually activated in response to actions you have taken that result in a request for services (e.g. balancing traffic on the website in order to offer customers a reliable and uninterrupted service, or limiting traffic on key parts of the website in order to maintain performance levels setting your privacy preferences, logging in, filling out forms) or are strictly necessary to analyse our Platform use and functioning, or for fraud prevention and security information. Technical Cookies do not rely on consent according to the law, as they are necessary for the performance of our services.
Analytical Cookies. These Cookies complete the strictly necessary Cookies to better understand the user’s interaction with our Platform, including marketing performance. If you do not allow these Cookies, then some of our analytical data will not take your Platform use into account.
