Cookies are unique identifiers, usually made up of small bits of text or code that are placed on your device. Cookies are widely used by website owners and their partners to help websites operate, work more efficiently, and personalize the experience for you.
Cookies may be placed on your device by Groupon, which are "first party" cookies. Cookies may also be placed on your device by a party other than Groupon, such as our Business Partners. These are "third party" cookies.
When we say "Business Partners", we mean third parties with whom we conduct business, such as merchants, co-marketers, distributors, resellers, and other companies or organizations with whom we enter into agreements to support our business and operations, including advertising partners.WHAT ARE COOKIES USED FOR?
The first and third party cookies on our Site provide various functions:
Essential Cookies: These cookies are essential for our Site to work properly. They include, for example, cookies that make it possible for you to browse and use our Site, such as cookies that remember you have logged in to your Groupon account.
Functional Cookies: These cookies gather information about how visitors use the Site, monitor the Site's performance, and are used to recognize and remember your preferences. If you agree to receive emails from us, we also use them to track responses to emails we send you, and to track whether you opened or deleted an email. Functional cookies can also be used to identify and remedy operational problems with the Site.
Advertising Cookies: These cookies record your online activities, including your activities on our Site, such as the pages visited, and the links and advertisements clicked. These cookies are used to provide an engaging and easy online experience that is tailored to your interests by delivering personalised advertising content. For example, if you view a particular offer on our Site, we may work with our Business Partners to show you that offer, or a similar offer, on other sites.
The advertising cookies we use on our Site are placed by either Groupon or our Business Partners. Any information collected by our Business Partners will be used in accordance with their own privacy policies.

Cookies are either classified as "Session Cookies" or "Persistent Cookies."
Session Cookies are stored temporarily and deleted once you close the browser window.

The length of time these cookies remain on your device will vary, as it depends on the specific cookie used.HOW DO I MANAGE COOKIES?
