Use of Cookies

Structural Group websites use "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Structural Group may use persistent cookies.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize Structural Group pages, or register with Structural Group’s site or services, a cookie helps Structural Group to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same Structural Group website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the Structural Group features that you customized.

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Structural Group services or websites you visit.

Structural Group may also use third-party vendors, such as Google, to use cookies for remarketing and advertising across the internet.
