If you do not agree to the use of these cookies please disable them by following the instructions for your browser set out here or use the automated disabling tool where available. However, some of the services will not function so well if cookies are disabled.
Where the organisation setting the cookie provides an automated disabling tool in respect of its cookie(s) we list the name of that organisation, the category of cookies it sets, the cookie type (either session or persistent and the duration details for persistent cookies) together with a link to its automated disabling tool. In all other cases, we list the names of the cookies themselves, their source at the date of this Cookies policy and the cookie type so that you can easily identify and disable them if you want through your browser controls.
After your initial visit to this website we may change the cookies we use. This Cookies Policy will always allow you to know who is placing cookies, for what purpose and give you the means to disable them so you should check it from time to time.
Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating web domain on your subsequent visits to that domain. Most web pages contain elements from multiple web domains so when you visit http://starscientific.com.au your browser may receive cookies from several sources.
Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device. Cookies allow you to navigate between pages efficiently, remember preferences and generally improve the user experience. They can also be used to tailor advertising to your interests through tracking your browsing across websites.
Session cookies are deleted automatically when you close your browser and persistent cookies remain on your device after the browser is closed (for example to remember your user preferences when you return to the site).
We describe the categories of cookies Star Scientific Limited and its contractors use below.
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features. Without these cookies, services you have asked for (such as navigating between pages) cannot be provided.
We make use of analytic cookies to analyse how our visitors use our websites and to monitor website performance. This allows us to provide a high quality experience by customising our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages. We might also use these cookies to highlight articles or site services that we think will be of interest to you based on your usage of the website. The information collected by these cookies is not associated with your personal information by us or by our contractors.
Targeting cookies (or advertising cookies) collect information about your browsing habits and are used to make advertising more relevant to you and your interests. They are used by services provided by third parties, such as Like or share buttons. Third parties provide these services in return for recognising that you have visited our website. When you use the LinkedIn, Twitter or the other share buttons available, you will be directed to a page controlled by those companies which may place cookies (including targeting cookies) and will be subject to LinkedIn’s, Twitter’s or the relevant other website’s cookies policies respectively.
We may also use your IP address and browser type to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our website and to improve the service we offer to you. An IP address is a numeric code that identifies your computer on the internet. Your IP address might also be used to gather broad demographic information.
We may perform IP lookups to determine which domain you are coming from (eg google.com) to more accurately gauge our users’ demographics.
Information from these types of cookies and technologies is not combined with information about you from any other source and will not personally identify you.
Our marketing related emails contain a single, campaign-unique “web beacon pixel” to tell us whether our emails are opened and combined with other technology verify any clicks through to links within the email. We may use this information for purposes including determining which of our emails are more interesting to you and to query whether users who do not open our emails wish to continue receiving them. The pixel will be deleted when you delete the email. If you do not wish the pixel to be downloaded to your device, you should choose not to click links that we send you. This information may be connected to your personal identity.
Where you subscribe to our webinar service, the accompanying emails similarly include a pixel. We track your interaction with these emails and our webinars to validate attendance for accreditation purposes and to help determine which information is of interest to you as described above.
Please note that this Cookies policy does not apply to, and we are not responsible for, the privacy practices of third party websites which may be linked to or accessible through this website.
We may update this Cookies policy and we would encourage you to review the policy from time to time to stay informed of how we are using cookies. This Cookies policy was last updated in December 2020.
