This Cookies Policy describes the different types of cookies and similar technologies that may be applied by the BC Lodging and Campgrounds Association.
We may change this Cookies Policy at any time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. If you have questions regarding this Cookies Policy they should be sent by email or by writing to us using the contact details set out at the end of this policy.
Cookies are a standard feature of websites that allow us to store small amounts of data on your computer about your visit to the BCLCA.com site. Cookies help us to learn which areas of a website are useful and which areas need improvement. Cookies also improve your experience by, for example, remembering your preferences.
You can choose whether to accept cookies by changing the settings on your browser. However, if you disable this function, your experience on the site may be diminished and some features will not work as intended depending upon which cookies are disabled.
The BCLCA.com site uses both 1st party cookies and 3rd party cookies (which are set by a server located outside the domain of the BCLCA.com site). We use 1st party and 3rd party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for the BCLCA.com site to operate, and we refer to these as “strictly necessary” cookies. Some cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of the BCLCA.com site, and we refer to these as “Performance” cookies. Some cookies enable us to provide enhanced functionality and personalization on the BCLCA.com site and we refer to these as “Functional” cookies. Finally, some cookies enable us and our partners to serve targeted advertisements and we refer to these as “Targeting” cookies.
Strictly Necessary Cookies.
These cookies enable you to navigate the BCLCA.com site and to use the services and features. These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you, which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of the BCLCA.com site. They help us to know which pages are popular and see how visitors move around the BCLCA.com site. If you do not allow these cookies, we will be less able to optimize the BCLCA.com sites’ performance. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and anonymous.
These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalization. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies some services may not function properly. These cookies do not directly store personal information but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device.
These cookies may be set through the BCLCA.com site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant advertisements on other sites. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising. These cookies do not directly store personal information but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device.
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our BCLCA.com site or opened an e-mail that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our BCLCA.com site to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our BCLCA.com site from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
In addition to the options provided above, you have the right to refuse or accept cookies from the BCLCA.com site at any time by activating settings on your browser. Information about the procedure to follow in order to enable or disable cookies can be found on your Internet browser provider’s website via your help screen. You may wish to refer to http://www.allaboutcookies.org/manage-cookies/index.html for information on commonly used browsers. Please be aware that if cookies are disabled, not all features of the Sites may operate as intended.
