What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies set by the website owner are called "first party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies". Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website.
We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Website and the purposes they perform are described below:
|Types of Cookie||Who serves these cookies||How to refuse|

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?
Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Websites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
Do you serve targeted advertising?
When you visit our website, selected third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to allow relevant adverts to be delivered to you on third party websites. We do this using a variety of digital marketing networks and exchanges, advertising technologies like web beacons, pixels and cookies, in addition to technology offered by third parties such as Facebook pixel's custom audience feature.
The adverts which you see will be based on your previous use of The Stock Shop website. The information collected through this process does not enable us or the third party websites to identify your name, contact details or other personally identifying details unless you choose to provide these. We will use anonymous information about the ad you saw and how you engaged with it to measure and improve our advertising campaigns in the future.
How can I control cookies?
