Cookies

Similar to other commercial websites, this website utilises a standard technology called “cookies” and server logs to collect information about how the website is used. Information gathered through cookies and server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at this website, and the websites visited just before and just after our own, as well as your IP address.

 

A cookie is a very small text document, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website, that site’s computer asks your computer for permission to store this file in a part of your hard drive specifically designated for cookies. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

 

Stories by S reserves the right to use technological equivalents of cookies, including social media pixels. These pixels allow social media sites to track visitors to outside websites so as to tailor advertising messages users see while visiting that social media website. Stories by S reserves the right to use these pixels in compliance with the policies of the various social media sites.

How to manage cookies?

You can set your browser not to accept cookies. Visit https://www.allaboutcookies.org to know more. However, in a few cases, some of the website’s features may not function as a result.
