We use cookies, and here's why...

If you search for a tradesperson using your postcode, we save your postcode in a cookie.

The next time you visit, we enter your postcode in the search box to save you having to retype it.

We also save the type of tradesperson you searched for and the radius of your search to make it easy to rerun your last query.

To find tradespeople near you, we need your longitude and latitude to calculate your distance from the companies we have listed.

Instead of getting the longitude and latitude of your postcode from our database every time, we save these in cookies too.

This makes future searches quicker - there are over 1.6 million UK postcodes in our database.

Please note - Our cookies contain the longitude and latitude for the centre of your postcode, not your exact location. We do not use location tracking.

If you have registered your company with Someone Local, and have ticked the box next to Remember my email address on this computer, we will save your email address as a cookie to save you retyping it.

Our cookies are saved as encrypted files on your personal device (laptop, smart phone, etc.) and are not available to other internet users or websites.

Here are the cookies we have saved for you at the moment...

You can remove these cookies using the Clear button in the tradesperson search panel.
