A recipe for our cookies 🍪
Cookies should be eaten,
but also explained
We love cookies of the eatable kind, but on internet and also our website there are different types of cookies. To explain and show you which cookies we use, and why, is natural for us. Therefore, let’s walk you through a less tasty recipe than you might be used to, and describe the cookies Sendify use when users visit our website and app.
How does retargeting work?
We at Sendify actively work with marketing trying to spread the word of our shipping service for small companies that are missing a good freight solution. If you at any time have visited our website it’s likely that you have seen ads from us at Sendify afterwards. This is something that we in marketing call retargeting.
What’s happening is that other websites and social media can see whether or not you have a cookie from us at Sendify saved in your browser. They can based on this knowledge figure out that you have entered our website, probably been interested in a new freight solution and therefore chooses to show you ads from us. We understand that this makes some people uneasy. That Facebook knows that you have visited our website. Although, you should know that the purpose is trying to show relevant ads for people interested in our service.
If you’ve seen ads from Sendify without first visiting our website, this is not based on cookies but rather other digital marketing methods.
