Cookies

Please try to contain yourself, we know this is the exciting stuff we all live for, but here’s where we tell you all about our use of cookies.

 

Grab a cup of tea, a couple of biscuits, and get set for an epic which rivals Milton’s Paradise Lost or Homer’s Odyssey…

Like any good epic we start on a dusky morning where our hero, my money pocket is pondering how to track its pocketeers sales so it can pay them lots of cashback.

my money pocket uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of the website. This is vital for ensuring it tracks your transactions and knows who to give the cashback too. Cookies help improve the experience when you browse my money pocket and helps us identify ways to improve the site. By continuing to browse the site you are agreeing to our use of cookies as set out in this policy.

Then comes the unexpected plot twist, my money pocket uses different types of cookies. [*sudden gasps can be heard*] But thankfully we, only need you to consent to some of the cookies we use. The jazzily termed Strictly necessary cookies’ and ‘Functionality cookies’ are needed to provide the cashback service offered to you, so these are exempt from the requirement to obtain your consent.

We ask for your consent for ‘Analytical cookies’, ‘Targeting cookies’ and the cookies dropped by the affiliate networks (ohhh yes, just like anything cool, we don’t launch stuff we drop it).

Back to the main plot, 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. As any good epic has, there is the threat of danger, if you do this, 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 cashback.

This is the part where it all starts to reveal itself, starting with the key piece of information – what actually is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers (imagine a friendly guardian angel – following your journey trying to lead you to your cashback, it contains no personal information such as your name or email address. The cookie is stored on your browser or the hard drive of your computer. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. Cookies may be placed on your device by my money pocket, which are ‘first party’ cookies. Cookies may also be placed by another party, such as our marketing partners or social media platforms. These are called ‘third party’ cookies. Where targeting cookies are placed by third parties, any information collected by them will be used in accordance with their own privacy policies, you can find out more on their websites. Gripping isn’t it!

And to the climax of our tale, we use the following cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These cookies are required for the operation of our website. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our Site.
  • 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 such as favourite merchants.
  • 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. These cookies help us to improve the way our Site works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.
  • 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. If the cookie is set by a third party, this type of cookie may also be used to create profiles of your general online behaviour. The information collected by tracking cookies is then used to serve you with tailored online advertising. We allow approved third parties to drop these cookies via our Site for the purpose of collecting tracking information.
  • Fifth type cookies. This doesn’t actually exist, we just wanted to check if anyone was still reading or not.

 

Affiliate Networks

Grab your popcorn, this is riveting

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. No personal information such as your name or email address is involved in this process. We recommend that you enable cookies in your browsers to make full use of the Site and to ensure that any purchases on third party sites are recorded.

Whilst the affiliate network cookie isn’t dropped by us, we thought it added a certain Je Ne Sais Quoi to our story.. By continuing to use our Site you agree to third parties such as affiliate networks and retailers featured on our Site using cookies for the purpose of tracking and awarding your cashback.

Alas, like all good things, this epic tale must come to an end. Lights dim attention turns on to Manage Cookies
