What are cookies?
A cookie is a text file containing small amounts of information which is downloaded to your
device when you access a website. The text file is then sent back to our server each time your
browser requests a page from the server. This enables us to operate the websites more
effectively and load the websites so that it reflects your personal preferences, based on your
previous browsing on the websites as well as keywords we may be able to gather from URLs of
other webpages from which you accessed the websites.
What cookies do we use?
When you visit the websites, the following types of cookies may be downloaded to your device:
Analytical and Performance Cookies
We may use analytics service providers for website traffic analysis and reporting. Analytics
service providers generate statistical and other information about the use of the websites by
using cookies. They allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how
often visitors return to the websites, how long they stay and how visitors move around our
websites when they are using them. This helps us to improve the way our websites work, for
example, it helps users to find what they are looking for easily. The information generated
relating to the websites may be used to create reports about the use of the websites and the
analytics service provider will store this information.
Advertising and Targeting Cookies
These cookies record your visit to the websites, the pages you have visited and the links you
have followed to other websites. We will use this information to try and make our websites and
other sites that you visit more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information
with others, such as Muang Samui Spa Resort companies and carefully selected third parties,
for this purpose. We work with technology partners to support our websites and to provide you
with relevant information about the products and services of websites and on affiliated sites or
help us to place relevant advertising on third party websites when you visit those sites. If you
are not happy for us to do this, please see the section of this policy titled “How do I turn
cookies off?” below.
We may use functional cookies that allow us to remember choices you have made on the
websites so as to provide you with a more enhanced user experience by delivering content
specific to your interests.
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These are cookies that are required for the administration and operation of our websites. Some
cookies that we use are necessary for our websites to function properly and to enable you to
move around the websites and use its features.
Third Party Cookies because Muang Samui Spa Resort has a strong presence on various social
networks, we try and make it as easy as possible to share content and to see what content is
popular on those networks. We add buttons to allow people to easily share to those networks.
We also use Facebook to power some of the chat functionality on the websites. When we
include these social 'plugins', it gives those sites the flexibility to use their own cookies. They
can't read any cookies we set from our websites, and we can't read any cookies they set, but it
lets them do the same kind of traffic measuring that we do on the rest of the websites, and it
also lets them know whether you're logged into their site. For example, if you're logged in to
Facebook, and want to converse via the chat widget, you can do that straight away without
having to log in again - we never know whether you're logged in or not, as you communicate
directly with Facebook, through their plugins on our websites. Other sites and services
(including, for example, advertising networks, providers of external services like web traffic
have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting
