MaxiCoffee uses 3 different types of Cookies :

Functional cookies

Functional cookies are cookies that are essential for MaxiCoffee to work. For example a so called "session" cookie which makes sure that you don't have to keep logging in on every page you visit, or a cookie that keeps track of your shopping cart on the website.

Analytical cookies

Analytical cookies used by MaxiCoffee helps us to establish data reports about the traffic and the global frequentation and usage of our website, in order to improve our services and your browsing experience on our website.

Advertising cookies

Our site may contain "Cookies" issued by third parties (targeted advertising providers for example), allowing them to collect browsing information about the devices used to browse our site or determine the advertising content that may correspond to centers of interest based on previous navigation of the terminal concerned. Refusing advertising "cookies" will not result in stopping advertising on your device. This will only result in an ad that does not reflect your interests or preferences.
Our goal is to show you the most relevant ads possible. To this end, the "Cookies" technology makes it possible to determine in real time which advert to display to a terminal, according to its recent navigation on one or more sites or applications. Your interest in the advertising content displayed on your device when you visit a website, often determines the advertising resources of the site, allowing it to exploit its services, often provided to users free of charge. You probably prefer to see ads that correspond to what interests you rather than ads that are of no interest to you. Similarly, advertisers who want to see their ads broadcasted, are interested in posting their offers to users who may be most interested in them.

MaxiCoffee uses cookies to ensure that we provide the best possible service to our online customers. However, as part of our privacy and security policy, we require your consent to use them. We currently have an "implied consent" policy in place. This means we will assume by your continued use of our website that you are happy for us to use cookies unless you take certain steps to opt-out of using the same. By submitting your information, you consent to the use of that information as set out in this Policy. If we change our Privacy Policy, we will post the changes on this page and may place notices on other pages of the website so you are kept informed of the information we collect and how we use it at all times. Continued use of the service will signify that you agree to any such changes.
Should you not consent to the use of cookies on the site, please see the section below for more information.

Can I turn off cookies?

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies or be notified each time a cookie is about to be used by modifying the settings in your browser. The majority of browsers will allow the user to alter the settings used for cookies. The help menu on your browser will have further details.
Please remember that turning cookies off will restrict your access to our website. If you have your browser set to disable all cookies, then you may not be able to access parts of the MaxiCoffee website. If your browser is set to prompt you when cookies are being used, you will have to answer "yes" when prompted to gain full access.

  • Security

Security, phishing and fraudulous websites

At MaxiCoffee, we take your online security very seriously. Full details about how we protect the information you provide us are given below.

Our website uses the latest technologies such as 3D Secure to provide a safe, secure site for electronic commerce transactions, including secure socket layer (SSL) technology for payment transactions. SSL is a method for establishing a link between one computer and another safe one. Banks also use these links for online banking. You will recognise an SSL link by the little padlock appearing on the lower right in the menu bar of your browser and at the address bar beginning with "https" instead of "http". In this case the "S" stands for "secure".

E-mail correspondence is not a secure means of communication as it is a free text format that cannot be encrypted. Although we use advanced security measures to protect your information against loss, misuse and alterations, because of the nature of the internet, we cannot guarantee the security of the information provided to us over the internet and cannot be held responsible for this.

We have identified several frauders that may use our identity, making you think we are asking for personal data: email address, phone number, bank details, etc.

Some sites, hosted in France and abroad such as mesaromesduportugal.com, use graphic interface and a visual identity similar to those of MaxiCoffee.com, to encourage you to place an order. We are not connected to these sites.

IDENTIFY A FRAUDULENT E-MAIL :

MaxiCoffee will never ask you for your login details, your password, or even your bank details. Beware of spelling and grammar as some fraudulent e-mails includes spelling mistakes. If you receive an e-mail asking for documents or any other kind of attachments without a proper justification, it is likely to be a phishing attempt.

If you have purchased on a fraudulent website and / or suspect to be victim of a fraud, we highly recommend the following procedure:
• If you have shared your bank details, contact your bank as soon as possible and oppose to the payment.
• If you have shared ID documents (ID card, passport ...), get in touch with the police.
• Modify all of your personal passwords.
• Make sure that your protection softwares are up to date.

You received a fraudulent e-mail ?

• Do not answer that e-mail and do not click on any content it contains : hyperlinks, attached files, etc.
• Flag this e-mail as spam in your mailbox.
• Inform MaxiCoffee.com customer service at 020 3481 1654, or help@maxicoffee.com.
