Cookie Policy

Most websites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling that website to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’).

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and generally improving your experience of a website. Cookies make the interaction between you and the website faster and easier. If a website doesn’t use cookies, it will think you are a new visitor every time you move to a new page on the site – for example, when you fill in information on one of the tools and move to another tool it won’t remember your previous answers and you will have to answer all the questions again.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files which may be put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a website or page. The cookie will help the website to recognise your device the next time you visit. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

What sort of cookies does the stopstroke website use?

We use cookies principally because we want to make our websites user-friendly, and we are interested in anonymous user behaviour. Our cookies don't store sensitive or personally identifiable information such as your name and address. In the unlikely event that our websites use cookies to store personal information about you, encrypts the personal data to prevent unauthorised use by anyone else.
Here's a list of the main types of cookies we use, and what we use them for. We’ve described them using the categories recommended by the International Chamber of Commerce in the ICC UK Cookie Guide.

Strictly Necessary Cookies:

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies services you have asked for cannot be provided. Because these cookies are strictly necessary we do not need to ask for your consent to use them.

Performance Cookies:

These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. Some of these are analytics cookies, set using third party web analytics software, which allow us to understand more about how our website is used. For example, like many companies we use Google Analytics to help us monitor our website traffic. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous and does not affect your privacy. It is only used to improve how a website works.

By using the stopstroke website you agree to have these types of cookies placed on your device.

Functionality Cookies:

These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, these cookies can be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

By using the stopstroke website you agree to have these types of cookies placed on your device.

Targeting or advertising cookies:

These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.

The stopstroke website does not use targeting cookies. We will ask for specific consent before we use targeting cookies.
