Overview

At StratusCore, we believe in being clear and open about how we collect and use data related to you. In the spirit of transparency, this policy provides detailed information about how and when we use cookies. This cookie policy applies to any StratusCore product or service that links to this policy or incorporates it by reference.

Does StratusCore use cookies?

Yes. As described in Section 1.8 of our Privacy Policy, we use cookies and other technologies to ensure everyone who uses StratusCore has the best possible experience. Cookies also help us keep your account safe. By continuing to visit or use our services, you are agreeing to the use of cookies and similar technologies for the purposes we describe in this policy.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables StratusCore features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to StratusCore and our sites generally, and even help us know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device. Cookies also enable you to easily share content on StratusCore and help us serve relevant ads to you.

When does StratusCore place cookies?

We use cookies on our sites (such as StratusCore.com) and mobile applications. Any browser visiting these sites will receive cookies from us. We also place cookies in your browser when you visit non-StratusCore sites that host our plugins (for example, StratusCore's 'Share' button) or tags.

What types of cookies does StratusCore use?

We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it's easier to return to StratusCore or interact with our services without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by StratusCore when you return to one of our sites or a partner site that uses our services (for example, our sharing or job application buttons). Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a website or a browser session).

What are cookies used for?

Cookies can be used to recognize you when you visit StratusCore, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that's in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with StratusCore faster and more secure. Additionally, cookies allow us to bring you advertising both on and off the StratusCore sites, and bring customized features to you through StratusCore plugins such as our 'Share' button.

Categories of Use Description
Authentication If you're signed in to StratusCore, cookies help us show you the right information and personalize your experience.
Security We use cookies to enable and support our security features, and to help us detect malicious activity and violations of our User Agreement.
Preferences, features and services Cookies can tell us which language you prefer and what your communications preferences are. They can help you fill out forms on StratusCore more easily. They also provide you with features, insights, and customized content in conjunction with our plugins. You can learn more about plugins in our Privacy Policy.
Advertising We may use cookies to show you relevant advertising both on and off the StratusCore site. We may also use a cookie to learn whether someone who saw an ad on StratusCore later visited and took an action (e.g. downloaded a white paper or made a purchase) on 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 ads. We may also work with a partner to show you an ad on or off StratusCore, such as after you've visited a partner's site or application.
Performance, Analytics and Research Cookies help us learn how well our site and plugins perform in different locations. We also use cookies to understand, improve, and research products, features, and services, including when you access StratusCore from other websites, applications, or devices such as your work computer or your mobile device.


What is Do Not Track (DNT)?

DNT is a concept that has been promoted by regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), for the Internet industry to develop and implement a mechanism for allowing Internet users to control the tracking of their online activities across websites by using browser settings. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has been working with industry groups, Internet browsers, technology companies, and regulators to develop a DNT technology standard. While some progress has been made, it has been slow. No standard has been adopted to this date. As such, StratusCore does not use 'do not track' signals.

How are cookies used for advertising purposes?

Cookies and other ad technology such as beacons, pixels, and tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us provide aggregated auditing, research, and reporting for advertisers, understand and improve our service, and know when content has been shown to you. Note: Because your web browser may request advertisements and 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.

If you are logged in on StratusCore.com or another Service that references this Cookie Policy or browsing a third party partner site of StratusCore and one of our cookies on your device identifies you, your usage (such as your browsing behavior) and log data (such as your IP address), will be associated by us with your account as noted in Section 1.6 of our Privacy Policy. We also use aggregate data from third parties and data from your profile and StratusCore activity.

If you are a StratusCore member but logged out of your account on a browser, StratusCore may still continue to log your interaction with our services on that browser for up to 30 days in order to generate usage analytics for our services, which analytics we may share in aggregate form with our advertising customers.

Unless you clear these cookies from your browser, we may use this information to:


We do not provide any personal information that we collect to advertisers. You can opt-out of off-site and third-party-informed advertising by adjusting your settings. Please note that opting out will not remove advertising from the pages you visit; it will mean that the ads you see may not be matched to your interests. If you are not a StratusCore member, learn more about cookies and how to opt out. Click here to learn more about the self-regulatory principles we adhere to.


What third-party cookies does StratusCore use?

Please note that the names of cookies, pixels and other technologies may change over time.

Controlling cookies

Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience, since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized settings like login information.

What to do if you don't want cookies to be set or want them to be removed?

If you don't want us to use cookies when you visit StratusCore, you can opt-out of some cookies on your settings page. In order for us to recognize that you have opted out of cookies, we have to place our StratusCore opt-out cookie on your device so we can know not to set other StratusCore cookies the next time you visit. If you do not want to receive cookies, you can also change your browser settings on your computer or other device you're using to access our services. If you use StratusCore without changing your browser settings, we'll assume that you're happy to receive all cookies on the StratusCore website. Most browsers also provide functionality that lets you review and erase cookies, including StratusCore cookies. Please note that the StratusCore site will not work properly without cookies.
