Cookie Policy

At Stakester, we believe in being transparent about how we process data about you and how we use cookies and similar technologies on our websites. This cookie notice sets out how we use cookies or other information downloaded to your device when you browse our website. It should be read in conjunction with our Privacy Notice available here.

About Cookies

The UK Information Commissioner (‘UK ICO’) defines a cookie as ‘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, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.’  Any browser visiting our site will potentially receive cookies from us.

We use two types of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie lasts beyond the current session and is used for many purposes, such as recognizing you as an existing user, so it’s easier to return to Stakester without signing in again. Since a persistent cookie stays in your browser, it will be read by Stakester when you return to one of our sites. Session cookies last only as long as the session. Once you close the page, the cookie is deleted.

What Cookies Do We Use?

The list of cookies being used on our website is available here. You will see that the cookies are split into the following categories:

Strictly Necessary

These cookies are necessary for the website/application to function. Without them the site will not work. Or, they provide functionality that the user expects to exist, like remembering your cookie preferences. Or, the cookies enable Stakester to adhere to the GDPR security requirements and prevent fraud.

Performance Cookies

Performance cookies are used Stakester can collect information about how people use the website/application – for example, the number of users on a site, how long they stay on the site for, and what parts of the site they visit.

Functional Cookies

These cookies allow Stakester to remember choices that a user has made, for example language preferences.

Advertising Cookies

These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to our website visitors and their interests. They are also used to limit the number of times a visitor will see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns.

Social Media Cookies

Social media cookies allow users to interact more easily with social media, such as Facebook and Instagram. Where we provide social media links or interactions on our website, such as like or share buttons, and you interact with them, the social media organisation may drop cookies and they will be covered by the Privacy Policy of that organisation.  We typically do not receive any personal data collected as a result of such interaction, although we may receive aggregated reports.

Consent for Cookies

When we want to use any cookie category other than “Strictly Necessary”, we will ask for your consent. This is done via our cookie banner. You can edit your consent options at any time by clicking on the “cookies” button on the bottom left hand corner of the webpage. If we make any changes to the list of cookies that we use, then we will automatically show you the cookie banner then next time you visit our site, so you have full control over the consent you provide.

Please note that if you manage your consent or set your browser to block cookies, some or all of the website and services may not have full functionality and your user experience may be impacted. The website will work, but only in its simplest form.
