The use of cookies is standard on the internet and many websites use them to improve the user experience. There are different types of cookies (described further below).

Which cookies do you agree to us placing as a user of our website?

By using Tumelo, you agree that we can place the following types of cookies on your device.

You will be asked which cookies you'd like to accept when you first come to our website. If you choose no cookies you'll still receive the 'Strictly necessary' cookies only. This is because they're fundamental to making our platform work. Without them, you wouldn't be able to access the platform at all.

If you accept cookies, you'll be accepting the 'Strictly necessary' cookies and the 'Additional' cookies. So that's all the cookies for you!


Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies make our website work. These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around our website and use our features, such as accessing secure areas. Without these cookies, we would not be able to determine whether you are logged in or not, for example.


Additional cookies

These cookies do all sorts of useful things. They help us with three key things:

  1. User behaviour analytics: Cookies help us understand how visitors interact with our platform by collecting anonymised data. Examples include: which pages visitors go to most often or if and when you visit any of our affiliate websites. This helps us understand what to work on next so we can continue to improve the user experience of the platform and add features we think visitors will get the most value from.
  2. Performance of the website: This helps us to manage errors and improve the performance of the wesbite. Examples include how fast the website works or if there's downtime on the platform.
  3. Third-party: Cookies allow third parties to set cookies on your device (e.g. Twitter) so that you can engage with those third parties. An example includes the sharing feature after you've placed your vote. This means that when we display content from a third party, this third party may set their own cookies or similar technologies onto your device. We do not control the use of such cookies and in many instances have no access to the data collected by these third parties. Third-party use of cookies is subject to their respective privacy policies.
