Cookie Policy

Hello! Welcome to mySupermarket’s Cookie Policy! Please note that any words which are capitalised have the same meaning as in the Terms & Conditions  for use of the Sites and the Service.

We recommend you read this policy together with our Privacy Policy, which explains what information we collect and how we use it.

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your computer or mobile 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.

Cookies do lots of different jobs—everything from allowing you to move from page to page in a website and remembering your preferences to supporting the placement of a relevant advertisement.  When you visit mySupermarket various cookies may be placed on your device. Some of these are essential; our website will simply not work without them.  Others are not integral to the service.

We’ve provided more details about different types of cookies, how we and our partners use them and how you can manage your cookie choices below.  In addition, you can learn more about cookies at All About Cookies  and Your Online Choices.

All About Cookies

Your Online Choices

There are five main types of cookies.  A description of the different types and how mySupermarket and its third party partners use each one appears below.  For a list of the specific cookies used, links to additional information and information as to how to manage your cookie choices, please see the “Managing Your Cookies” section, below.

Type of cookieWho places itWhat it is used for
Strictly NecessarymySupermarketThese cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Sites and use their features. Without these cookies, most of the Services simply will not work. These cookies are what allow you to do everything from adding lots of items to your basket from a variety of different shelves and pages to sending that basket to the Supermarket of your choice. They also remember you (or at least your browser) from visit to visit so that you don’t have to log in every time, or if you aren’t registered, you don’t have to start your basket from scratch on each visit. (You are always going to need chocolate, right? It should be there, waiting for you!)

These cookies collect statistical information about how visitors use a website. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies individual visitors. The information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. We use this information for maintenance, development and evaluation of the Sites.

Targeting/ Advertising• mySupermarket
• Third-party service providers
• Third-party partners
These cookies are used to manage the advertising campaigns which run on the Sites. These cookies are used:
• for targeted (“behavioural”) advertising, that is, to present you with advertisements which are more relevant to you and your interests;
• to limit the number of times you see any given advertisement;
• to measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign;
• to prevent and combat fraud and abuse; and
• for aggregated ad reporting.

In addition to cookies set by mySupermarket and our third party service providers and partners, cookies may be set by other third parties while visiting the Website.  For example, if you visit a page with content embedded from an advertising network, a video streaming service or another source (e.g. YouTube, Facebook) they may set their own cookies on your web browser. These anonymous cookies may be set by that third party to track the success of their application (that is, count how many times it has been used or viewed) or to customise their application to you.

Some cookies are essential for mySupermarket to function and others are not.  You always have the option to set your browser settings to reject all cookies.    Please note that each browser has its own settings. If you do reject all cookies, however, our Sites will not work.

Please remember that if you choose to reject cookies from a specific company or via Your Online Choices or another industry website, it only applies to the web browser on the device you are using. You will therefore need to follow the same process on every device you use or different web browser that you use to exercise the same choice.

A list of the key cookies used by our mySupermarket and by our third-party service providers and partners, and information as to how to manage them, follows.  You can learn more about our partners, what they do and the data they collect in our Privacy Policy
