This is the cookie policy for Steed Bespoke Tailors (collectively referred to as “Steed”, “we”, “us” or “our” in this policy), and our website.

We use essential cookies to make the Steed website work. We’d like to use other cookies to improve and personalise your visit, and to analyse our website’s performance, but only if you accept.

Technologies similar to cookies

Technologies that store or access information on a user’s device are similar to cookies and are also covered by this policy. These technologies may include:

  • Device fingerprinting – using a set of information without relying on cookies in order to identify a particular device. For this purpose where you are resident in Australia, our partner Ipsos Iris may collect your IP address, monitor settings, type of browser and operating system to create a unique serial number which constitutes a digital “fingerprint”.

  • Local storage – storage of data in the local device’s cache, for example to load content quicker.

  • Pixels – a small pixel graphic which is used to track user behaviour, site conversions etc.

  • Scripts – small computer programs embedded within websites that give them extra functionality but may access user devices.

In this policy we call all cookies and similar technologies “cookies”, for ease.
