  • Cookies. "Cookies" are small bits of information that the Site places on the hard drive of your computer.  Cookies remember information about your activities on the Site to make your visits to the Site more enjoyable and valuable to you by providing a customized experience and recognizing your preferences when you visit the Site.  If you've chosen to disable cookies on your browser, some of the functionality of the Site may be lost.  Certain Services provided by Stio, require that cookies be enabled in your browser and cannot be used when you have disabled cookies in your browser.
