Updated on 31/07/2019

This Cookie Policy (“Cookie Policy”) applies to Dusit Thani Public Company Limited, its subsidiaries and all of their businesses within the Dusit Brands and its related brands (collectively, “Dusit Hotels and Resorts”, “Dusit International”, “we”, “our”, “ours” or “us”) when you visit our websites, domain names, social media, DusitApp or other Applications (“Digital Channel”).

1. What Is A Cookie

Cookies are small text files or pieces of information that are stored on your computer or mobile device (such as a smartphone or tablet) when you visit our Digital Channel. A cookie will usually contain the name of the Digital Channel from which the cookie has come from, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e. how long the cookie will remain on your device), and a value, which is usually a randomly generated unique number.

2. What Do We Use Cookies For?

We use cookies to make our Digital Channel easier to use and to better tailor the Digital Channel and our products to your interests and needs. Cookies can do this because Digital Channel can read and write these files, enabling them to recognise you and remember important information that will make your use of a Digital Channel more convenient (for example by remembering preference settings).

Cookies may also be used to help speed up your future activities and experience on our Digital Channel. We also use cookies to compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how users use our Digital Channel and to help us improve the structure and content of our Digital Channel. We cannot identify you personally from this information.

3. What Types Of Cookies Do We Use?

Two types of cookies may be used on the Digital Channel, which are called “session cookies” and “persistent cookies”. Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain on your device until you leave the Digital Channel. A persistent cookie remains on your device for much longer or until you manually delete it (how long the cookie remains on your device will depend on the duration or “lifetime” of the specific cookie).

Third Party Cookies

We also use a number of suppliers that may also set cookies on your device on our behalf when you visit our Digital Channel to allow them to deliver the services they are providing. If you would like more information about these cookies, as well as information about how to opt-out of receiving such cookies, please see their privacy policies.
