What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data that is placed in the browser of your computer or on your mobile device. 'First party cookies' are cookies which we use for operating the domain through which the cookie is served. RideandRest’s own cookies are therefore 'first party cookies'.

Permanent cookies have a longer lifespan and are not automatically deleted once you close your browser.
Other tracking technologies can be used which are similar to cookies. These are known as pixel tags, tracking URLs or Software Development Kits (SDKs). All these technologies are termed Cookies in this statement.
