Cookies and Tracking Technologies Policy

Aoraki Mount Cook Alpine Village Limited and its subsidiaries (“us”, “we” or “our”), along with our advertising partners and service providers, use a variety of technologies to understand how people use our websites and to enable us to provide more personalised advertising to you on other websites you visit. To understand how we use such technologies, please read below. This Cookies and Tracking Technologies Policy forms part of our Privacy Policy.

Tracking technologies (e.g., cookies) are small data files stored on a device with a web browser such as a personal computer, tablet and a smart phone. A cookie can contain information about your IP address, your device, or the online activity of a person who uses that device. The information in each cookie is sent to the party that controls that cookie so that it can recognise you when you revisit that website or visit other websites.

We use first and third-party cookies. First party cookies are used and controlled by us to provide services on our website. Third-party cookies are controlled by third-parties.

The cookies we use are either session or persistent cookies. Session cookies only last until you close your browser. Persistent cookies remain on your computer until you delete them.

Purposes for which we use cookies

We use cookies where it is necessary for our legitimate interests of conducting our business, which may include managing, analysing and improving our websites or optimising your experience as a user of our websites. Where we have your consent in accordance with the relevant law, or if your consent is not required by any relevant law, we may also use advertising/targeting cookies.

Our websites use the cookies that perform the following functions:

  • Necessary cookies - These cookies are necessary to enable certain features of our websites to operate.
  • Performance cookies - These cookies help us analyse data from our website so we can optimise our services to you. We use these cookies to compile reports and to help us better understand your use of our website. These may be first or third party cookies.
  • Functionality cookies - These cookies allow us to enhance your experience (for example by remembering any settings you may have selected);
  • Advertising/targeting cookies - These cookies are used to recognise your online interests, activity and browsing habits in order to provide targeted advertising. These can be used to track links clicked on our websites, other websites, social media platforms, and our direct marketing material. These are generally third party cookies.

Third party cookies
Where we use third party cookies, such providers may be based outside of New Zealand and may not have privacy laws as comprehensive as in your place of residence.

While these third parties are primarily collecting this information on our behalf, some of these third parties may also use the information which is collected for their legitimate business interests, including to improve their own services, and to maintain the security of their systems. Our agreements with such third parties include standard data protection clauses. If you would like further information about how our agreements with these third parties protect your data, please let us know.

Where we use thirty party advertising platforms to manage our advertising on third party websites, such providers may also measure ad performance and report aggregate statistics to us. While ad performance and statistics are reported to us, it is the third party and not us that collects the information in these cookies from your use of our website. Accordingly, the use of such information is governed by the third party’s privacy policy.

For the third parties we use, their privacy policies or ad preferences can be accessed from the links below.

If you do not agree to the use of cookies or other similar technologies, or would like to block some or all of the cookies or other similar technologies on our website from being downloaded onto your computer or device, you can do this by manually disabling or rejecting the use of cookies through your internet browser. Where the third party is collecting the information you may need to opt out in accordance with the process set out in the third party’s privacy policy or ad preferences material.

Where you have consented to the use of cookies, you can withdraw your consent at any time by disabling or rejecting cookies as set out above.

If you disable or reject the use of cookies some functionality on this website may not be available or it may take longer to use that functionality.
