Only a cookie ID is stored in the cookie which points to a matching record of user activity on the hotels booking engine for personalisation purposes.

This information is then used to personalise the website experience for that user if they return to the website again. Personalisation options include remembering the preferred dates of stay in the event that the user has not yet made a booking, or remembering their name and arrival date if they are a pre-stay customer seeking additional information (e.g.directions, upgrades) on the website.
