Cookie Policy

Welcome to MyGuava.com

At MyGuava.com, we pride ourselves on being the Ultimate Payments App, offering a comprehensive and user-friendly platform for efficient money management. As part of our commitment to transparency and enhancing your browsing experience, we've designed this Cookies Policy to help you understand how and why we use cookies.

 

1. What are Cookies?

Have you ever wondered how some websites remember your preferences or how they manage to show content relevant to you? The secret lies in cookies! Cookies are minuscule text files stored on your computer or mobile device when you visit certain online sites. These files act as tiny memory aids, allowing websites to recognise returning visitors and tailor experiences to individual user preferences. Their role is pivotal in making the web more user-centric and efficient.

 

2. How We Use Cookies

Here at MyGuava.com, cookies are not just random data, they are tools that serve specific purposes:

 

Personalisation: Imagine walking into a room where everything is arranged to your taste. That's what personalisation cookies do — they help curate a unique browsing experience by remembering your preferences and displaying relevant content.

Analytics: Just as a compass guides a ship, analytics guide us in understanding user behaviors and preferences. By analysing this data, we can refine and improve our platform, ensuring you always have a seamless experience.

Necessary Functionalities: Some cookies, due to their fundamental nature, cannot be turned off. Why? They ensure that our website functions correctly, maintain user sessions, and provides a secure environment for our visitors. Without these, our site might not work as efficiently as you'd expect.

 

Your default settings are set with your security and privacy in mind:

Personalisation: Disabled, to ensure you only see personalised content if you opt for it.

Analyses: Disabled, so we only analyze your browsing behaviour with your consent.

Necessary: Enabled, to guarantee the fundamental functionalities of our site.

 

3. Third-Party Cookies

In our mission to provide a top-notch service, we collaborate with third-party services like Google Analytics and Facebook Pixel. Google Analytics assists us in understanding site traffic and page interactions, while Facebook Pixel helps us optimise our ads for those genuinely interested. Remember, all these tools are simply to enhance your MyGuava experience.

 

4. Managing Your Cookie Preferences

When you first land on our website, a consent mode pop-up appears. This isn’t just a random pop-up but a gatekeeper giving you control. You can:

 

Accept all cookies: This allows for a fully personalised experience.

Decline non-essential cookies: Keep only the necessary ones and ensure basic functionalities.

Manage your preferences: Handpick what you want and don't want. Whether it’s personalisation or analytical cookies, the choice is in your hands.
