On Drive-Alive's websites, cookies are used to track your progress around our

Third Party Cookies on Drive-Alive's pages
Because Drive-Alive web pages are integrated with those of many of our partners
(ferry companies, hotel providers etc) for booking purposes we need to track your
movement to the websites of these different providers. This is sometimes done via
a third party tracking network and sometimes directly through the provider's website.
These partners and third party tracking networks place a cookie on your device in
order to be able to recognise that the user came from Drive-Alive.
Please note that during your visits to Drive-Alive's websites you may notice
some features that are not related to Drive-Alive or Drive-Alive's partners. When
you visit a page with content embedded from, for example, Twitter or Facebook, cookies
from these websites may be downloaded to your device. Drive-Alive does not control

more information about these. The originators of such cookies can only place their
cookie on your browser if we have decided they are reputable enough to be included
on our website. We take great care to ensure that this is the case, but cannot be
held responsible for such cookies.
