Once you begin to use our site we will collect your Internet Protocol (IP) address; this may be processed at a later date if we are asked to investigate fraudulent activity on our site. If you have requested to be kept informed of the services that we offer, we will contact you using the details you provide.
Processing is also carried out for the purposes of ‘legitimate interests’ pursued by us, or our agents and service providers, utilising the least amount of personal data necessary for the particular task.

If you request to be kept informed of services that we offer your data may be used for marketing purposes by all divisions of TrustedReviews Limited. If you have used the service through a third party we will share contact details with them, or their marketing partners and agencies in line with their normal practice.
We will not rent, trade, or sell your data to others.

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. You can choose to accept or decline cookies.

What are cookies?
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.
We primarily utilise cookies to track our website usage and marketing activities using products such as Google Analytics and Recombu’s own reporting solution.
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.
