Privacy Policy

CST is committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected.

We aim to be as open and transparent as possible around the information we collect when you visit our websites, mobile site or mobile apps, including through the use of "cookies".

This policy explains what cookies are and how we use them. It also explains the different types of cookies we use, and how you can change or delete them.

We hope that this policy helps you understand, and feel more confident about CST's use of cookies.

What is a cookie?

Cookies are small text files that are stored by your browser onto your computer or mobile device. They are widely used in order to make websites work or work in a better, more efficient way. They can do this because websites can read and write these files, enabling them to recognise you and remember important information that will make your use of a website more convenient (eg. by remembering your user preferences).

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you do not want information collected this way, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to deny or accept the cookies feature.

We work with other third party organisations to provide the services on our website. A third party is an organisation which is not hosted at the domain address in your browser when you visit our website. These third parties may also use cookies on our website and can also place cookies on your device without you visiting their website directly.

The two types of cookies we use are CFID & CFTOKEN to set a session instance for the user to deliver the site's content correctly.

Our cookies policy

Our cookies don't store personal information such as your name, address or payment details. They are a string of encrypted text which we decode, and then use to associate you with a specific account. Think of it like a special password that allows us to identify you without ever knowing your real name.

We think that cookies make life on the internet a lot easier, and they stop you having to remember every password, and they stop us having to ask you time and again for the same details.

Managing cookies

You can control which cookies you get and which you keep on your device. Unless you have adjusted your browser settings so that it will refuse our cookies, our system will issue cookies when you visit our website.

Many web browsers can be set up to ask for your prior consent before an individual cookie is set on your device. This will give you control over your cookies but naturally may interfere with your browsing experience ie if you have to accept each cookie on our website (and on other websites you visit).

You may refuse to accept our cookies on your device at any time by activating the setting on your browser which allows you to refuse cookies. We have included links below to direct you to the pages of the main web browsers' sites which provide details about changing your browser settings. For information on how to control cookies on web browsers which are not included below or on other devices which you use to view our website (such as on mobile phones and other mobile devices) please refer to your user manual.

Please note that by deleting cookies or disabling future cookies you may be unable to access certain areas or features of our website and it will mean that settings such as your stored username and password may have to be reset. If you adjust your cookie settings this will also affect the other websites you visit.

All of the major browsers offer tips and guidance for managing the cookies available on your browser.

Future Updates



“Since 2003, CST has been a stalwart supporter of ODIHR in its efforts to effectively monitor antisemitic hate crime in the OSCE Region. With its rigorous methodology and innovative partnerships with the British police, it is viewed by many as representing the gold standard for NGO responses to all forms of hate crime. I wish CST all success in its exciting new phase of work.”
