What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are stored by the browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store things like user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a 'memory' for the website, so that it can recognize you when you come back and respond appropriately.
A visit to a page on any Streamworks website (streamworksmn.com, iwmarketing.com or myfurnituremarketing.com) may generate the following types of cookies:
- Site performance cookies
- Anonymous analytics cookies
- Geotargeting cookies
- Registration cookies
- Advertising cookies
- Third party advertising cookies

Anonymous analytics cookies:
Every time someone visits our website, software provided by another organization generates an "anonymous analytics cookie".
These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before.
Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies and, if you don't, we generate new ones.
This allows us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site.
These cookies are used by software which tries to work out what country you are in from the information supplied by your browser when you click on a web page. This cookie is completely anonymous, and we only use it to help target our content, display location-relevant information and advertising.
These cookies allow us to know whether or not you've seen an ad or a type of ad, and how long it is since you've seen it.
We also set anonymous cookies on certain other sites that we advertise on. If you receive one of those cookies, we may then use it to identify you as having visited that site if you later visit Streamworksmn.com, iwmarketing.com or myfurnituremarketing.com. We can then target our advertising based on this information.
How do I turn cookies off?
It is usually possible to stop your browser accepting cookies, or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website. However, we cannot tell if you are signed in without using cookies, so you would not be able to post comments.
