Tracking and performance & monitoring purchases
A cookie is a piece of information (a text file) that is placed on your computer by a website when you visit it and can be used to recall something about you at a later date. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies cannot be used by themselves to identify you.

Two types of cookie are used on this website:
Session Cookies: temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave our website

Persistent Cookies: remain in the cookie file of your browser for a longer duration, and will depend on the lifetime of the cookie. They help to recognise you as a unique visitor when you return to our website, and to compile anonymous statistics about users of our website. We cannot identify you personally using cookies.

Cookies enable Fibre Compare to know precisely when a customer switches broadband provider. When a customer clicks on a Buy Now button or other clickable link that directs them to a broadband provider website, cookies record that activity.

Fibre Compare receives revenue from the broadband providers when customers complete signups to their broadband, home phone or TV packages. The cookie acts as the tracking information used by Fibre Compare and the broadband supplier to confirm a broadband sale has taken place. The revenue allows Fibre Compare to be free to use, allows us to pay our staff and invest in the ongoing development of the website.
