What are cookies?

Cookies and similar technologies (“cookies”) are pieces of data, normally stored in text files, downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies can contain a range of information. Every time you visit a website, stored Cookies are sent, collected and shared. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise the device you are using and provide you with a better website experience. While you interact with our website, technologies from third-party providers such as scripts, pixels and tags, which we integrate on our website for advertising purposes, also set cookies on your devices.

Cookies can do several different jobs. Here’s what they can do:

  • Making sure you have a seamless booking experience
  • Discovering how you interacted with our website, what you liked and what you didn’t, helping us to improve your future experience with more personalised features
  • Recording information such as details of your last flight search or holiday search, making sure your future searches are faster
  • Measuring the effectiveness of our advertising
  • Providing you with our latest deals that are more relevant to you on other websites

Almost all websites use cookies in some way or another, and every page you visit on those sites stores cookies on your computer and receives them back.

How do we use cookies?

There are different types of cookies. Some cookies come directly from our website and others come from third parties who place cookies on our site. Cookies can be stored for varying lengths of time on your browser or device. Session cookies are deleted from your computer or device as soon as you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer or device until deleted or until they reach their expiry date.

Advertising

These cookies collect information about your browsing habits to make advertising more relevant to you and your interests. They collect information like when you last visited a website and the journey you took during your visit. This information is used to build a profile of your interests so that ads that are relevant to you can be shown on other websites. Another benefit of these cookies is that the information collected can be used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement to prevent you from seeing the same advert repeatedly.

We use information from these cookies to customise the marketing content you see on websites, apps and social media platforms. Third-party advertising providers set cookies on other websites so they can understand your interests better and serve you more personalised ads. If you receive one of these cookies, we may then use it to identify you as having visited that site if you later visit our website and consent to receiving advertising cookies. We then personalise our advertisements to you based on this information.

Some of these cookies for advertising purposes are placed on our website and can be controlled by selected third parties. Therefore, customers who visit our websites and accept cookies of this category, are also, in effect, customers of these other third parties.

We also use cookies to track whether you have clicked through to our website from an affiliate’s websites, so that we can manage our Affiliate Networks. When you click through to our website from an affiliate that displayed easyJet ad, your browser redirects via an Affiliate Network which stores a cookie on your computer with tracking information so that your visit to us is recorded and we can correctly identify conversions.

We will also use this information to make our website and the advertising (including product recommendations) displayed on it more relevant to your interests.

If you disable advertising cookies, it doesn’t mean you will receive less advertising, just that the advertising you receive will be less targeted to your preferences.

easyJet use this type of cookie to:

  • Create a profile about you so that we can deliver adverts more relevant to you and your travel needs on and off site
  • Limit the number of times you see an advertisement and measure the effectiveness of our digital advertising campaigns
  • Inform or remind you by email of any task carried out via our website which remains uncompleted, such as incomplete orders or abandoned baskets
