Gumtree Cookie Policy

What are cookies and how are they used?

A cookie is a small amount of data that is sent to your device’s web browser by a website and is stored on your *device's hard drive. Cookies may allow a website to “remember” your actions or preferences over a period of time, or they may contain data related to the function or delivery of the website. Each website can send its own cookies to your web browser. Your browser will have the option to prevent websites using cookies (your browser's help screen will tell you how to do this), but please note that this may reduce the functionality of our website and other websites.

Gumtree.ie (the website) uses cookies to keep our platform working as you expect it to, to analyse traffic, to prevent non-genuine users and/or malicious software from engaging in abusive activities on our platform, to enable performance and product improvements, to tailor your experience through personalised content and advertising, and to offer features for social media.

*PCs, tablets, mobile phones and any other internet accessible hardware.

 

Types of Cookies:

First-Party Cookies

First-party cookies are directly stored by the website (or domain) you visit. These cookies allow website owners to collect analytics data, remember language settings, and perform other useful functions that provide a good user experience.

Third-Party Cookies

Third-party cookies are created by domains that are not the website (or domain) that you are visiting, hence the name third-party. They are typically used for cross-site tracking, retargeting and personalised advertising.

 

Cookie Categories:

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to navigate the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the platform. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, like shopping baskets or checkout features, cannot be provided. 

To prevent non-genuine users and/or malicious software from engaging in abusive activities on our platform, reCAPTCHA and the cookies it requires to function are classified as strictly necessary to ensure the overall safety of our marketplace. 

For the privacy of our users, we only use Google Analytics to process obscured and/or non-personally identifiable data to track and understand aggregated usage metrics on our platform, such as number of visitors and unique visits. With these privacy safeguards, Google Analytics and the cookies it requires to function are classified as strictly necessary.

Analytics Cookies

These cookies collect information about how visitors use our website, for instance; which pages users visit most often, which links they click on, if they get error messages from certain pages. etc. 

These cookies do not collect information that can personally identify a user. Any information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. Their sole purpose is to help improve website functions.

Functional Cookies

These cookies allow us to remember some of the choices you make and provide an enhanced, more personalised experience (e.g. remembering your user name and password for login, your search view preferences between sessions etc). 

These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. 

They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or posting a comment. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Advertising Cookies

These cookies are used to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to you and your interests as you browse the internet. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. 

They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. 

Quite often marketing or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.
