Does SRO Use Cookies?

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

A cookie is a small file placed onto your device. Cookies enable us to identify your device, and enable the functioning of many SRO features, including your ability to log into your account.

If you don’t want to receive cookies, you can change your browser settings. If you use SRO without changing your browser settings, we’ll assume that you’re happy to receive all cookies on the website. Please note that the SRO site will not work properly without cookies.

Trusted partners help us serve advertising on and off the website, and analytics companies like Google Analytics, Quantcast, Nielsen, and Leadforensics, may also place cookies on your machine.

What types of cookies do we Use?

SRO uses two types of cookies, persistent and session. A persistent cookie is set once you’ve logged in to your account. The next time you visit the website using the same device, the persistent cookie will enable us to recognize you as an existing user, so you may not need to log in before using our services.

A session cookie is used to identify a particular visit to the website. Session cookies expire after a short time, or when you close your web browser.

Other technology, such as Adobe Flash, can be used to place the functional equivalent of a cookie on your computer.

When does SRO put cookies on my device?

Cookies may be set by us when you visit the website, or they may be set by other websites or services who run content on the page you’re viewing (known as third-party cookies).
