Use of Cookies and Web Beacons

We may use cookies to help you personalize your online experience. Cookies are identifiers that are transferred to
your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser to enable our systems to recognize your browser. The purpose of
a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize the sites
pages, or register with any of our site’s services, a cookie enables The Bower at Broulee to recall your specific
information on subsequent visits.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying your Web browser; however, if you choose to
decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the site.

A web beacon is a transparent image file used to monitor your journey around a single website or collection of sites.
They are also referred to as web bugs and are commonly used by sites that hire third-party services to monitor traffic.
They may be used in association with cookies to understand how visitors interact with the pages and content on the
pages of a web site.

We may serve third party advertisements that use cookies and web beacons in the course of ads being served on our web
site to ascertain how many times you’ve seen an advertisement. No personally identifiable information you
give us is provided to them for cookie or web beacon use, so they cannot personally identify you with that information on
our web site.

Browsers can be set to accept or reject cookies or notify you when a cookie is being sent. Privacy software can be
used to override web beacons. Taking either of these actions shouldn’t cause a problem with our site, should you so
choose.
