What is a Cookie?

Cookies are small text files that may be placed on your device when you visit a website.

Cookies can be set by the owner of a website or in some cases by third party services the website owner allows to present other information, run content or advertisements, or provide other functionality such as analytics.

We use the following cookies:

·         Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our Site.

·         Analytical/performance cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our Site when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our Site works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.

·         Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to our Site. This enables us to personalise our content for you and remember your preferences (for example, your location to ensure you reach the right SuperValu eShops site).

Affiliate Networks

 

When you click through to a retailer from our Site, your browser redirects via an affiliate network which drops a cookie on your computer. The cookie stores tracking information so that when you visit a retailer via our Site, any purchases made will result in the retailer reading this information. The retailer will then send us information about your purchase, at which point we can then credit your account. We recommend that you enable cookies in your browsers to make full use of the Site in order to ensure that any purchases on third party sites are recorded.

 

Whilst the affiliate network cookie isn’t dropped by us, we want to tell you about it before you use our Site to make a transaction. By continuing to use our Site you agree to third parties such as affiliate networks and retailer as featured on our Site from time to time to using cookies for the purpose of tracking and awarding your Real Rewards points.
