Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.

Recombu uses third-party advertising technology to serve ads when users visit our website; we sell this space to pay for the content you enjoy for free. During the process of advertising being served to you, a unique cookie may be passed by the advertising technology to your browser (more information http://www.switchconcepts.com/cookies.php).
We also earn a small commission from some of the brands we work with through our comparison areas, and this is paid to us when you sign up for a deal from one of those retailers. To enable us to track this, a cookie will be placed on your computer by the retailer, then the cookie will identify that you have been referred by Recombu so we can earn the commission. The Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB), the trade association for online advertising, has created a website to help people understand performance-based marketing, so for more information on this please click here.
