Cookies Policy

Our mission is a straightforward one:

“To bring you the best possible deals so you can make the most of your money.”

Achieving this isn’t that simple though. On average we add a lot of offers a week to the site, we’ve written over ……… lines of code, work with some fifty different partner and do this all with our We Are! SXM team here in (Dutch) Sint Maarten!

I get the picture. So how do you use cookies?

When you or anyone else uses one of our vouchers we earn a small commission from Partners we work with. To do this we place a cookie onto your computer, when you visit a retailer from our website, the cookie identifies you as coming from our site and we earn our commission.

It’s also important to note that not everyone pays us a commission, but we’re happy to list their vouchers to ensure we’re always bringing you the best possible discounts.

Other ways we use cookies

As well as using cookies to ensure we earn our commission we use cookies during the registration process, to modify the site’s appearance based on your preferences or user history and to record usage statistics. In every instance we use cookies to make your experience while using wearesxm.com as pleasurable as possible.
