Jiffy Cookie Policy

At Jiffy, we use cookies and other similar technologies like pixels and tags to allow our website to work, to analyze and improve it, to personalize your experience and to show you relevant advertising. Here's a breakdown of what that means for you.

What are cookies?

Cookies are pretty cool. They make your online experience personalized by helping us show you relevant Jiffy adverts when you browse other websites, helping us to understand how you are using our own website, and saving you lots of time by remembering your details. But how do they do it?

Cookies are actually small files that are stored on your computer or phone. They store small bits of data so that when you visit a website, it can remember your preferences and make sure it shows you content that is relevant to you.

All cookies have expiry dates that determine how long they stay in your browser:

  • Session cookies are temporary cookies that expire automatically whenever you close your browser.

  • Persistent cookies usually stay in your browser for a set period, or until you manually delete them.

How we track emails

Every email we send to you contains small files known as tracking pixels.

These are small graphic files that contain unique identifiers that enable us to recognize when our marketing subscribers have opened an email or clicked certain links. This allows us to record each subscriber's email address, IP address, device ID, date, and time associated with each open and click for a campaign.

We use this data to create reports about how interesting or useful our marketing campaigns were to our users, then we can adjust them to make our campaigns more relevant. For example, if you never open emails about sushi, we'll start to assume you don't want to receive emails about sushi!

Our Customer and Rider Privacy Policies contain more information about users' data protection rights. If you have any other questions about the way we use cookies, you can contact our general customer services team at: support@jiffygrocery.co.uk.

Necessary Cookies

Without cookies most websites wouldn't work, that includes Jiffy.

The cookies necessary for Jiffy to work allow us to:

  • Add items to your basket and create an order

  • Check your order status

  • Enable customer service agents to chat with you

  • Keep records of your consent to our use of cookies

Our payment provider Stripe also uses cookies which are necessary to remember your card details and process your payments, without storing your card details on Jiffy's systems.

If you log in to Jiffy using social login, the social login partner (such as Google or Facebook) will use certain cookies to allow you to log in. You can check Google and Facebook's privacy and cookie policies on their websites.

Our customer support system also uses cookies for storing context for your customer support chats.

Analytics cookies

Analytics cookies help us understand how people are using our website. This helps us to constantly improve things.

The analytics cookies we use allow us to see:

  • if you've visited Jiffy before

  • who's visited our website without being logged into an account — this tells us how many people are new to Jiffy

  • how much time people spend on Jiffy and when they close their browser

  • how our customers got to Jiffy — for example, if they came to our website from a Google search

  • which parts of our website are being used and which parts aren't

Cookies to improve the content you see

We're also always testing out new ways of making Jiffy as good as it can be.

We do this by trying out new ideas with small groups of customers before rolling things out to everybody. In order to do this we need to use… yes, you've guessed it: Cookies!

The cookies we use for this allow us to:

  • know which versions of our website you are visiting

  • control which versions you visit — to find out which ones work best

Advertising cookies

We use third party cookies and pixels to collect data about your browsing activity on our website. This means we can show you relevant Jiffy adverts when you browse other websites. This might include ads for food types you've ordered before — or ads showing you what it's like to be a Jiffy rider or explaining how to apply if you've previously visited our rider apply page.

These partners might use cookies, attribution services or similar technologies to check whether we've shown you an ad.
