Stooch Cookie Policy

Last Revised 25 July, 2020

What is a cookie anyway?

Well, a cookie is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your device when you first use our Sites.  When you use our Sites a second time, the cookie allows our Sites to recognize your device or browser. 

Some cookies may collect or store information that can be used to identify you as an individual (“Personally Identifiable Information”).  Most cookies will not collect or store Personally Identifiable Information but instead will collect aggregated and/or anonymized information about how users use our Sites.

Some Site features may not function properly without cookies.  We use cookies to understand how people use the Sites and to improve content and services we offer through the Sites.  We may use cookies to control the display of ads, to track Site usage patterns, to personalize what content you see when you visit the Sites, and to record requests for subscriptions to our services.


Ok, so what types of cookies do we use?

Performance Cookies.  Performance/analytical cookies allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors to our Sites and to collect information about how visitors navigate within the Sites.  The information we collect enables us to improve the way our Sites work.  For example, these cookies show us which are the most frequently visited pages on our Sites, allow us to see the overall patterns of usage on the Sites and help us record any difficulties you have with the Sites.  We also use cookies to help you navigate within our Sites and travel back to pages you’ve visited before.


Functionality Cookies.  In some circumstances, we may use functionality cookies.  Functionality cookies recognize your device when you return to our Sites and allow us to remember the choices you make on our Sites in order to provide enhanced and more personalized features, such as customizing the Sites to your personal preferences. 

Targeting or Advertising Cookies.  We may use targeting or advertising cookies to deliver ads that we believe are more relevant to you and your interests.  For example, we may use targeting or advertising cookies to limit the number of times you see the same ad on our Sites and to help measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns.  These cookies remember what you have looked at on the Sites and we may share this information with third parties such as our advertisers.


What about Third-Parties?

In some circumstances, we may work with third parties to provide services on our Sites.  For example, our advertisers and other third parties may use their own cookies to collect information about your activities on our Sites and/or the ads you have clicked on. 

If you opt-out of third-party cookies, you may continue to see ads on our Sites, but the ads you see will not be tailored to you.
