Cookie policy


When you visit our website or social media sites, you may provide us with two types of information:

  • Personal Information – which you knowingly choose to disclose, that is collected on an individual basis and is used in accordance with our Privacy Policy.
  • Website use information which is collected on an aggregate basis as you and others browse the website or interact with our social media sites, and is used as set out in this Cookies Policy.


We also use cookies on our website and social media sites which are used when you share information using a sharing button or “like” button, or when you click on links on the official Stark social media pages on sites such as Facebook, Twitter or Google+. The companies that deliver this functionality, and the operators of the sites, will record that you have done this and this information may be linked to targeting/advertising activities as explained in our Privacy Policy.

If you choose not to delete and/or block cookies from the Stark website, and continue to use the website, you are thereby consenting to our use of such cookies.

A description of the type of cookies that we use, and their purpose, is below:


Category 1 – strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are essential in order to move around the website and use their features, such as accessing areas of the website. For example, to remember the previous actions so you can navigate back to the previous pages.

Category 2 – analytical/performance cookies

These cookies collect information on how you use the website, for instance which pages you go to most often. These cookies do not collect information that identifies you. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous.

Category 3 – targeting cookies

These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with our permission. They remember which websites you have visited and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation which is listed in our Privacy Policy.


You may delete and block all cookies from the website, but parts of the website may not then work. Most web browsers and devices allow some control of most cookies through the browser or device settings, for example you can set up your web browser to inform you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it.
