Interest Based Ads Advertising Cookies

These cookies are set by Groupon and our advertising partners to allow us to understand your activity, such as the pages visited, and the links clicked. We use this information to make inferences about the things you like, so that we can show you ads relevant and useful to you.

Performance and Analytics Functional Cookies

We use these cookies to gather information about how visitors use the Site, monitor Site performance, and recognise and remember preferences. Functional cookies can also be used to identify and remedy operational problems with the Site.

Site Navigation Essential Cookies

These cookies are required to enable core functionality of the site, e.g. to keep you logged in as you navigate the site and to process purchases.


At Groupon we are deeply committed to maintaining the trust and confidence of our customers. As part of that commitment, we believe that it is important to explain to you, as clearly as possible, how and when we use cookies and similar technologies on our websites and mobile applications (together, we call these the "Site") to collect and use your information.


We use the term 'cookies' to refer to website cookies as well as all other similar technologies which store and access information on the device that you use to access the Site, such as pixel tabs, clear GIFs and web beacons.  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 data analytics and advertising partners.


We use the following cookies:

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.

Analytics/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. This helps us to improve the way our services work, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.  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. To learn more about advertising cookies, please visit

Social Media Cookies: We also use cookies that allow you to make posts to social media sites. For example, you can post deals you have viewed or purchased directly to social media sites to share with your friends.

Our cookie consent tool provides information on the different categories of cookies that our Site uses, the companies that serve them and why we use them.  This tool is always available at the bottom right hand corner of our website.  If you have any questions about our use of cookies you can contact us at the address below.


Cookies are either classified as "Session Cookies" or "Persistent Cookies."

Session Cookies are stored temporarily and deleted once you close the browser window.

Persistent Cookies are stored on your device between browser sessions, and are beneficial because they allow us to remember your preferences and activities while on the Site. The length of time these cookies remain on your device will vary, as it depends on the specific cookie used.


If you don’t want our Site to use cookies, please use our cookie consent tool to opt-out.  Alternatively you can opt-out using your browser settings following the instructions set out below.  

Note that if you choose to opt-out, this could hinder your experience on our Site. For instance, if you opt-out of functional cookies the Site may no longer be able to remember your preferences, such as language and country. Similarly, if you opt-out of advertising cookies, you will still see online advertisements, but they will no longer be tailored to your personal interests and tastes.
