Cookie Policy

INTRODUCTION

We (Kelkoo) take the privacy rights of users of the Website (http://kelkoo.co.uk) very seriously and are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This Cookie Policy is incorporated in and subject to the Terms of Use. By using the Website, you agree to the use of cookies in accordance with this policy (unless you disable cookies using your browser settings, as described below).

WHAT ARE COOKIES

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. You can find more information about cookies at www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.eu.

WHY WE USE COOKIES

When you visit our Website, we may set and access certain cookies on your computer. They enable us to: (a) estimate our audience size and usage pattern; (b) store information about your preferences, and so allow us to customise our Website according to your individual interests; (c) speed up your searches; and (d) recognise you when you return to our Website.

In addition to our cookies, we allow certain third parties and affiliates to set and access cookies on your computer. Some of these third parties may collect and use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to serve you content that might be of interest to you. These third parties’ use of cookies is subject to their own privacy policies and not Kelkoo’s.

TYPES OF COOKIE

There are four main types of cookie generally used on websites:

Strictly necessary cookies: These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies services you have asked for (like selecting a product for purchase) cannot be provided.

Functionality cookies: These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced features. For instance, they may be used to remember your account details and personal preferences, or provide services you have asked for such as rating a review or sharing via social media. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Performance cookies: These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these  cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.

Ad targeting cookies: These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers.
