Cookie Policy

What is a cookie?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device and to target the content displayed to the user’s interests. Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. They can also help to ensure that adverts you see online are more relevant to you and your interests. You can find more information about cookies at: www.allaboutcookies.org and www.youronlinechoices.eu.

Why does CAMFED use cookies?

Like many websites, CAMFED uses cookies in order to provide you with a more personalised web service. Cookies help us identify which bits of our website people are using, and help us do work on those sections of the website to improve the user experience. We also use cookies to help show content on our site which is relevant to you and your interests, for example if on a previous visit you went to our pages about emergencies, appeals or events, we might find this out from your cookie and show you other information on our website related to emergencies, appeals or events on subsequent visits. Information supplied in cookies also allows us to measure the effectiveness of online marketing campaigns for CAMFED. This enables us to ensure any money we spend on digital marketing gives us a good return on investment.

We also use marketing or referring tracking codes in internet addresses (URLs) to show us whether a visitor has come to our site via a link on a referring website or in a specific piece of marketing and to give us insight into the effectiveness of our marketing. Some of this information may be used by third party cookies to target you with relevant advertising (see below).

We also measure the success of the emails we send – so we know what subject lines and stories people liked the most. When clicking on a link from our emails your browser will be cookied. These cookies will show as under go.camfed.org.

What type of Cookies does CAMFED use?

Session Cookies (sometimes called temporary cookies)
Are temporary cookies that memorize your online activities, so that the website can follow your journey through the site, rather than thinking you are a new visitor with every click. They expire as soon as you close out of a web-page.

Persistent Cookies (sometimes called permanent, stored or functionality cookies)
Track your online preferences. A new visitor to the website will see all the default options, as you use a site you are personalizing it to your preferences. Persistent cookies remember this information for your next visit to the website, such as your login info, language, and currency preferences. These cookies are stored in your hard drive, they normally have an expiring date, when they will be deleted. 

Third Party Cookies and Pixels
CAMFED uses a number of suppliers who also set cookies on our website in order to deliver the services that they are providing to CAMFED. These cookies enable us to understand how visitors use the website (e.g. whether they are browsing via a mobile device, what pages they look at) and we use this information to improve the effectiveness of the website. We also use cookies to tell us if a user has come to our website via an online marketing campaign. We use this information to help us ensure any money we spend on online advertising is well spent. If you would like more information about the cookies used by these suppliers, as well as information on how to opt-out, please see their individual privacy policies.

Pixels work in a similar way to cookies, they are set in certain pages and can trigger a cookie to be downloaded to your browser. They register when a particular device visits a particular page, allowing a user to be identified across sites so that relevant, targeted ads can be served. 

Some of our Pixels and/or cookies will allow CAMFED to remind you about our work and how you can help after you have left the website. These are the targeting/advertising cookies we use. It is a useful tool for us to keep public awareness of our campaigns and how they can be supported.

Cookies set by Third Party sites
To enrich our content, we sometimes embed photos and video content from websites such as YouTube and Flickr. As a result, when you visit a page with content embedded from, for example, YouTube or Flickr, these sites may set a cookie.

The CAMFED website also carries embedded 'share' buttons to enable users of the site to easily share articles with their friends through a number of popular social networks, for example, Facebook, Twitter or Whatsapp. These sites may set a cookie when you are also logged in to their service.

CAMFED does not control the dissemination of these cookies and you should check the relevant third party website for more information about these.
