Cookie Policy

The MoneyMaxim cookie policy is developed in exactly the same way as everything else on our site - it needs to meet our 'Mum' test - everything we do must make our Mums' feel comfortable. So when using our site you shouldn't feel you need to question what we do!

By using our site and services you are agreeing to accept the cookies we use to run MoneyMaxim effectively on your computer.

Like pretty much every website we use cookies - in order we make your visit as productive as possible. Examples of why we need cookies are so we can reward those who introduce customers to us, identify where customers are having difficulties with our service or simply to make our service work at all!

Our cookies are anonymous so you can be sure that it's your computer rather than you that is identified.

When you leave our site and go to one of our partners its likely they will also use a cookie to work out that it was our introduction that brought you to their site, and if you decide not to allow their cookies they won't know, we won't receive an introduction payment and that ultimately that would put our business at risk and make the provision of all our free services and our UK based customer services team very difficult to sustain. So please don't delete their cookies either!

What are cookies

Cookies are tiny text files stored on your computer when you visit certain web pages. We at MoneyMaxim use them to keep track of what you have told us when you visit us, say what you were searching for or quote information which saves you having to reinput details when you return to our site.

To use most of our services you need to have cookies enabled - see the section below called Managing Cookies. If you don't enable cookies, you can still however browse the site, but may come across areas where you cannot proceed further. Its likely your web browsers has cookies enabled, but see Managing Cookies (below) for assistance to turn them on should you need to.

Do note that cookies can't harm your computer and that we don't store personally identifiable information about you in the cookies we create. We use information gathered from them to help improve your experience of our site, helping us to provide services such as our online chat facility.

We don't however use them to remarket our products to you once you have left our site - our Mums found this irritating!

We do have relationships with organisations such as Google or Captify who may also set cookies during your visit to be used for remarketing purposes - which means showing show you different products and services based on what you appear to be interested in. These provide an important stream of revenue for us and allows us to reinvest into more free content for our visitors. If you'd prefer to opt out, please go to the Network Advertising Initiative website (please note that we're not responsible for the content of external websites).

Some of our services are provided by trusted partners, such as our general comparison service partner Seopa t/as Quotezone. Like us they also set cookies on our site so that when you are running a quotation data filled in on one page is carried forward to the next. Like us most cookies are deleted as you close your browser other than those which will recognise that its your PC which is returning to us, enabling us to short cut you to your quotes.

Our cookies policy

To use the online comparison services and other interactive services on MoneyMaxim.co.uk on your computer, tablet or mobile phone it will need to accept cookies, as we can only provide you with certain personalised features of this website by using them.

The cookies we use store no personal data but enable us to link your data between pages as you move between them. However, if you decide that you don't want to use the interactive services we offer you can restrict, block or delete cookies from MoneyMaxim.co.uk, or any other website, you can use your browser to do this.
