What are cookies, why we use them and what exactly they are...


Like many other websites, Scottish Stammering Network’s website uses cookies. ‘Cookies’ are small pieces of information sent by a web server to your browser and stored on your hard drive. They allow that website to recognise you when you visit. They are typically used to collect statistical data about your browsing actions and patterns and do not identify you as an individual.

We have purposely designed our website in such a way that we have no need to use any first party cookies (however, third party cookies are used) to ensure you have an ideal browsing experience.

Google Analytics

We use it to collect information about how our website performs, how our users navigate through and use the website. This helps us improve our content and website performance.

Other 3rd Party Cookies

We may embed or link to external sites which make use of their own cookies – these are outwith our control and are subject to their own privacy and/or cookie policies.

For example, our #HearThePerson Case Studies makes use of YouTube embedded videos. Which will trigger cookies to be stored on your device from YouTube.

We are not responsible for the content or use of any third party cookies.


“Do Not Track” is a privacy preference you can set in your browser if you do not want online services to collect and share certain kinds of information about your online activity from third party tracking services. We do not track your online browsing activity on other online services over time and we do not permit third-party services to track your activity on our site beyond our basic Google Analytics tracking.
