    How we use cookies
      We use cookies to keep track of what you've bought from us and what you've done on the site. Cookies also mean you can use services such as tracking your order, checking your account or topping up.

        Our cookies don't hold personal information such as your name or bank details. They simply let us find information once you're logged in or help link your browsing information to you and your personal information when you choose to register for a service, white paper or newsletter.

          To do this we sometimes use persistent cookies. We take looking after your personal information seriously – we're always monitoring and improving how we protect it.

            We've put our cookies into the following categories, to make it easier for you to understand why we need them:

            1. 1. Strictly necessary – these are used to help make our website work efficiently
            2. 2. Performance – these are used to analyse the way our website works and how we can improve it
            3. 3. Functionality – these help to enhance your experience by doing things like remembering products you've added to your basket
            4. 4. Targeting/advertising – these are used to share some information with third parties who we advertise with, so we know how you've reached our website. We can also use cookies to identify the parts of the website you’re interested in. We then use this information to show you adverts and pages we think may also be of interest to you, to tailor how we communicate with you, or to tailor the contents of the communications we send to you. If you prefer, you can opt out of these. Tailoring of content means it includes information reflecting the interest you’ve shown in the content of our web pages, or offers or promotions that we think may interest you, and to improve how we respond to your needs.
              In addition to this, sometimes other Vodacom Group companies will add a cookie to show you adverts and pages which may be of interest to you. Details on these, and how to opt out if you prefer, can be found in the ‘Third-party cookies’ section of this page.
