How Webgains uses cookies

As a performance marketing network our job is to ensure that a website (called a publisher) that sends a customer to another website (called an advertiser) is rewarded for a successful referral. A publisher might be a voucher download site, a cashback reward site, a blog or any other website.

  • This reward process is enabled by using cookies which recognise if you were referred to an advertiser by one of our publishers. Our cookies contain no personally identifiable information.
  • A large part of the reason why so much is “free” on the internet is because websites can make money through advertising rather than charging you. Being rewarded for referrals is one of the great advances that internet commerce has enabled and we believe is far preferable to forcing people to pay for services.
  • However, we fully respect your choice as an individual, if you prefer not to enjoy these benefits, we do not want to intrude on your privacy and provide full information on how to delete our cookies.
  • As well as using cookies for reward purposes, our web site also uses cookies to remember your preferences, for example, your preferred language (full details below).
