FBM Holidays treats data as an asset that must be protected against loss and unauthorized access. However, no information transferred over the Internet or wireless network can be guaranteed to be completely secure. We employ many different security techniques to protect such data from unauthorised access by users inside and outside the company.
Principle 4 - Cookies
Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored on your computer, mobile phone or other device. Some of these cookies are strictly necessary to enable you to move about the site and book your holiday.
Generally, our cookies perform up to four different functions:
1. Essential cookies
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies services you have asked for, like payment for accommodation, cannot be provided. Because some website features will not function without cookies of this type, they are designated as ‘strictly necessary’ and are exempted from the regulations which require your consent to place cookies on your device
2. Performance Cookies
These cookies allow us to collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors visit most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t record information that personally identifies a visitor. All information these cookies record is aggregated and anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works. By using the FBM Holidays website you agree we may place these types of cookies on your device, unless you have disabled them.
3. Functionality Cookies
These cookies allow a website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, personalised features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies record may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites. By using the FBM Holidays website you agree we may place these types of cookies on your device, unless you have disabled them.
We use these technologies to do things like:
Cookies settings - If you don't want to receive certain categories of cookies on the FBM Holidays website, you can opt-out of them, by changing your cookie settings via your browser; your browser help function will tell you how or visit www.aboutcookies.org. Although most functions will work on the FBM Holidays site without cookies, you will lose some features and functions.
FBM uses the following cookies to help maintain functionality and understand and improve advertising.
Google analytics – this is used to collate data to improve our understanding of your usage of our website;
AddThis - This button spreads content across the Web making it easy for visitors to bookmark and share with other people. Provides statistics about bookmarking and sharing activity of users, and helps visitors create buzz for sites to increase popularity and ranking.

Principle 6 - Deletion of your Personal Data
We are unable to delete your FBM Holidays account information containing your personal information for a period of 6 years from the date of your last interaction with us (this could be a booking transaction, a brochure request, or some other interaction with fbmholidays via our Customer Services team or our online tools). This is because we may need to access historical information for business reporting purposes.
