We use cookies on the Site. A cookie is a unique identifier usually consisting of a small piece of text or code, that is stored on your browser or the hard drive of your device. Cookies may be placed on your device by TopCashback, 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.

When you click through to a retailer from our Site, your browser redirects via an Affiliate Network which drops a cookie on your device. 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 credit your account. No personal data such as your name or email address is involved in this process.

You may refuse to use some cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. Each browser allows you to restrict or block cookies in different ways. However, please note that, if you disable or refuse cookies, some parts of this Site will become inaccessible or not function properly resulting in your cashback not tracking. 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.
