  1. HOW DO WE USE COOKIES

    We use files known as cookies on https://scoutmytrip.com (called "WebApp", "ScoutMyTrip", "ScoutMyTrip Platform" or "Site" inter-alia) to improve its performance and to enhance your user experience. By using ScoutMyTrip you agree that we can place these types of files on your device.

  2. WHAT ARE COOKIES

    Cookies are small text files that a website may put on your computer, or mobile device, when you first visit that site or one of its pages.

    There are many functions that a cookie can serve. For example, a cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit it. ScoutMyTrip uses the term "cookies" in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

    Certain cookies contain personal information – for example, if you click on "remember me" when logging on, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies will not collect information that identifies you, but will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use ScoutMyTrip, or a user’s general location
