The cookies we place
We use both functional cookies and cookies from third parties for analysis and marketing purposes.

Functional cookies
Functional cookies enable certain parts of the website to work properly and for your user preferences to remain known. For instance, cookies are used to set the correct fonts and language for you, to store your user session on the web server so that you can view the website and your shopping basket can remain full and to store the last address you entered.
These are all functions which would not work without these cookies.

Cookies from third parties
In addition to functional cookies, there are also cookies that we do not place or read, but that come from third parties which have been engaged by Takeway.com and which offer potential functionality on the websites. We will describe below the purposes of these cookies for each party.
