We use different types of cookies on our Site and we only need you to consent to some of the cookies we use. This is because the ‘Strictly necessary cookies’ and ‘Functionality cookies’ are operationally necessary and are exempted from the requirement to obtain your consent. Therefore, we only ask your consent for Analytical cookies, Targeting cookies and the cookies dropped by the affiliate networks. You can withdraw your consent at any time by deleting all cookies on your devices and / or by changing the cookie settings of your browser or device. Please note, that some parts of our Site and other websites and mobile apps will not function correctly if you disable cookies. This may mean you will not be able to claim any Real Rewards points.
A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive.
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).
· Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to our Site, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our Site and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.
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.
The third party companies that generate these cookies have their own, very strict, privacy policies but we don't have access to these cookies other than allowing them to be served. We have no role to play in these cookies at all (although we may use statistical information arising from these third party cookies and provided to us by third parties, to improve the targeting of advertisements to users of the website).
