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
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.
