Affiliate Tracking Cookies

Digital Takeover Ltd, the operator of the LoanStar.com website, has integrated affiliate links from various affiliate networks and other third-party advertisers.

LoanStar.com takes on the role of a publisher by publishing content. Various providers assume the role of advertisers. By using the content and comparison service on LoanStar.com, you can access the advertiser’s site via an affiliate link, where you may order the financial product or request a loan. In the case of a successful sale, we receive a commission that allows us to publish further free content for you and to improve our comparison systems.

As soon as you reach the provider as a user via our affiliate link, a cookie will be saved on your browser. The purpose of the storage of cookies is the processing of commission payments between merchants and publishers, which are handled by the affiliate network.

The saved affiliate cookies contain no personal data. Only the identification number of the publisher (LoanStar.com), the ordinal number of the visitor of the website, the time, and the index of the affiliate link, are stored. All affiliate cookies will be processed and deleted after 90 days.

As mentioned above, you can prohibit the storage of cookies in your browser settings. You also have the option to delete your cookies at any time.

Right to Information and objection
