How we use cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer’s hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets you know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

At SMJ we use cookies to:

  • Provide insights regarding our website users and our sites’ performance, such as page views, conversion rates, device information, visitor IP addresses and referral sites.
  • Partner with third party publishers, advertising networks and service providers to manage our ads on other sites. Our third party partners may set cookies on your device or browser to gather information about your activities on our website and other sites you visit, in order to provide you with SMJ ads. For example, if you visit SMJ and also use a social media platform, you may see a SMJ ad in your social media newsfeed or timeline.

How you can opt-out

You can set your browser to not accept cookies, but this may limit your ability to use our services.

You can also opt out of receiving interest-based ads from certain ad networks, please go to the Network Advertising Initiative website (opens in a new window - please note that we're not responsible for the content of external websites).

Do not track (DNT) is a feature offered by some browsers, with some newer browsers offering it as default. If you enable it, it sends a signal to websites to request that your browsing isn't tracked, for example by third party ad or social networks, or analytic companies.

At present no industry-wide uniform standard has been agreed and adopted to determine how DNT requests should be managed, so our website doesn’t currently respond to DNT requests. Until that standard is established, we'll continue to review DNT and other new technologies, but won't respond to DNT requests.

If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us at
