Our site, like most websites, includes functionality provided by third parties, including the third party money transfer providers/FX brokers listed on our site (Transfer Providers), which enables us and the relevant Transfer Provider to establish that you came from our site as a referral from us and helps us to continue to provide a free service to our visitors.
      2. We may also have arrangements with some of our business partners who promote our service on a success-only basis (i.e. instead of paying for advertising, we pay them commissions on sales). Cookies are required to allow us to reward these partners and these cookies are usually provided by specialist companies (known as affiliate networks). Neither the networks, nor the partner advertising or recommending our services are able to identify you personally. We ask you to support us by allowing these cookies which ultimately help us to offer you the service we do at the price we do.
