1. Cookie and tracking policy
1.1 What are cookies?
A cookie is a small data file that is placed on your computer or other device to allow a website to recognise you as a user when you return to the website using the same computer and web browser, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (a ‘persistent cookie’). Other similar files work in the same way and we use the word ‘cookie’ in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
- Functionality cookies: necessary for website operation and to recognise you when you return to the site so that content can be personalised for you, for example, by remembering your country and site preferences;
- Analytical/performance cookies: to analyse the use of the site, for example, recognising and counting the number of visitors and how they move around the site. This helps us to see what parts of the site are popular and which sections need improving to make the experience better for users; and
- Advertising cookies: to record your visit to the site and the pages you have visited and links you have followed. We will use this to make the site more relevant to your interests.
1.2 How to control and delete cookies

You will also find details on how to delete cookies from your computer, as well as more general information about cookies. Please note that, as these websites are not owned or operated by SWO Tooling we are not responsible for any of the content on them.

1.4 Email Tracking
Some of the emails we send to you may contain a ‘pixel’ or tracked links which allows us to identify when you have opened the email and to verify which links contained in the email you have accessed. We use this information to determine which parts of our emails are of most interest to you.
You can delete the pixel by deleting the email. If you do not wish to download the pixel to your computer or other devices, you can do so by selecting to receive emails from us in plain text rather than HTML.
Alternatively, you can unsubscribe from our mailing list by clicking on the unsubscribe link in the email or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
