Our cookies

Cookies do lots of different jobs. For example, they let you navigate between pages efficiently, they remember your preferences, and they generally improve your user experience. None of the websites under TheSupercargo domain carry any third party advertising. However, sites that do so use cookies “to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests”. To put it another way, the those sites will try to sell you things based on where you have been on the Internet and what in the past you have shown an interest in.

Our cookies DO NOT do that!

The cookies used on this website are either:

  • essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, or
  • collect information about how you use the website, for instance which pages you visit, how often you visit them and if you get error messages from any web pages.

These cookies don’t collect information that identifies you personally. All the information these cookies collect is aggregated and is therefore anonymous. It’s only used to improve how this website works.

By using the Stops and Stories website, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device.

You are completely free to erase our cookies immediately after visiting us, though this may make it appear to us that your next visit is your first. We do recommend that every so often you erase all the cookies your device(s) may have collected. Consult your browser for information of how to do this.

We reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to modify or replace the terms of this Privacy Policy at any time.
