STX Cookie Policy

Last Revised March 27, 2018

Does STX Use Cookies?

As described in our Privacy Policy, this website (the “ Site”) uses cookies and similar technologies like pixels and tags to ensure that we give you the best possible experience on our website.

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, to improve the user experience, as well as to provide business and marketing information to the owners of the website.

STX uses cookies for the following purposes:

Authentication

  – STX uses cookies to recognize you if you are logged in to the Site, so that we can show you the right information and personalize your experience.

Security

  – STX uses cookies to support or enable security features we have deployed, and to help us detect malicious activity and violations of our Terms of Service.

Preferences, features and services

  – STX uses cookies to know which language you prefer, what your communications preferences are, and they help you fill out forms on the Site. Plus they provide you with features, insights, and customized content through our plugins.

Advertising

  – STX may use cookies to show you relevant advertising both on and off the Site. We may also use a cookie to learn whether members who saw an ad on our Site later visited the advertiser’s site. Similarly, our partners may use a cookie to determine whether we’ve shown an ad and how it performed, or provide us with information about how you interact with them. We may also work with a partner to show you an ad on or off the Site, such as after you’ve visited a partner’s site or application. Cookies and ad technology such as web beacons, pixels, and anonymous ad network tags help STX more effectively serve ads to you, as well as to collect aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for advertisers. Note: Because your web browser may request advertisements and web beacons directly from ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.

Performance, Analytics and Research

  – STX uses cookies to help us learn how well our site and plugins perform across the globe. We also use cookies to understand, improve, and research products, features, and services, including when you access the Site from other websites, applications, or devices such as your work computer or your mobile device.

We may allow third parties to serve cookies that fall into the five categories listed above. For example, like many companies, we may use Google Analytics to help us monitor our Site traffic. We may also use third party cookies to help us with market research, revenue tracking, improving Site functionality and monitoring compliance with our Terms of Use.

Opt Out of Cookies

If you would like to opt out of accepting cookies altogether, you can generally set your Web browser to not accept cookies or to notify you when you are sent a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it. However, certain features of our Site or other services may not work if you delete or disable cookies.
