Cookie Policy

At Adyen, we want to ensure that your visit to our website is smooth, reliable and as useful to you as possible. To help us do this, we use cookies and similar technologies to make our website relevant to your interests and needs.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are automatically placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit almost any Web site. They are stored by your Internet browser. Cookies contain basic information about your Internet use, but they do not normally identify you personally. Your browser sends these cookies back to the site every time you revisit it, so it can recognise your computer or mobile device and personalize and improve your site experience.

What type of cookies do we use?

The cookies we use fall into 3 categories. These categories are described below:

Essential cookies:
These cookies are necessary to help you access and move around our site and use all its features. Without these cookies, our website would not work properly and you would not be able to use certain important features.

Analytics and customisation cookies:
At Adyen, we want to make your experience on our website as helpful, smooth and as enjoyable as possible. We use cookies to help us understand how our website is being used and how we can improve your experience on it. This type of so-called "analytics" cookies can provide us with anonymous information to help us understand which parts of our website interest our visitors and if they experience any errors. We use these cookies to test different designs and features for our sites and we also use them to help us monitor how our visitors reach our sites.

Advertising cookies:
Advertising cookies help ensure that our advertisements are as relevant to you as possible. We work with third party advertisers to give you access to interesting and exciting content on our website. These third party cookies record information about your use of advertisements and help to improve your online experience. For example, some advertising cookies help select advertisements that are based on your interests. Others help prevent the same advertisement from continuously reappearing for you.
