Types of cookie

When you use our website, the following types of cookie may be set on your device:

Essential or 'Strictly Necessary' cookies

These cookies are essential in helping you to make use of the features and services we offer on the Gocompare.com website. Without these cookies, the services you want to use (such as getting an insurance quote) cannot be provided. These cookies do not gather information about you that could be used to identify you, and they do not monitor or remember where you have been on the internet.

Functional cookies

These cookies allow us to provide you with a better online experience when you use our website. They are used to remember your preferences on our websites and to provide enhanced, more personal features. They do not gather or store any information which would allow us to identify you personally.

Analytical Performance and Measurement cookies

Performance cookies help us to understand how our customers use our site and to better develop our Services. Sometimes the services we use to collect this information may be operated by other companies on our behalf. They may use similar technologies to cookies, known as "web beacons" or "tags". These are anonymous and, as they are only used for statistical purposes, they do not contain or collect any information that identifies you.

Targeting or 'Behavioural Advertising' cookies

We have relationships with carefully selected and monitored suppliers and service providers (third parties) who may also set cookies during your visit to our website. The purpose of these cookies is "online behavioural advertising" (also known as "behavioural targeting" or "remarketing"), which is a means of showing you relevant products and services based on what you appear to be interested in. Although these cookies can track your visits around the web they don't know who you are. Without these cookies, online advertisements you encounter will be less relevant to you and your interests.

These may include social media cookies which are set by social media services when, for example, you engage with our content on or through a site such as Facebook. They are capable of tracking your browser across other sites and building up a profile of your interests. This may impact the content and messages you see on other sites you visit.

If you would like more information about online behavioural advertising, including how to opt-out of these cookies, please visit: https://www.youronlinechoices.com/ or see here our section on managing cookies.
