Session cookies: These are used to maintain a so-called ‘session state’ and only lasts for the duration of your use of the Site. A session cookie expires when you close your browser, or if you have not visited the server for a certain period of time. For example, if you consider your journey through the Site to be a conversation with Stumbler, the session cookie reminds the Site where Stumbler was in that conversation (for instance if at some point in the conversation you asked Stumbler to add a hotel to your basket, next time you click on the basket it will still be there). Session cookies are required for the Site to function effectively but are not used in any way to identify you personally.

You can view permanent cookies by looking in the cookies directory of your browser installation. Stumbler uses permanent cookies to identify you between Site visits. For example, if you were browsing Cape Town hotels last time you were on the Site and Stumbler has a great hotel deal in Cape Town, it may use a permanent cookie to recognise you and show you this deal. These permanent cookies are not required for the Site to work but may enhance your browsing experience.
