What Are Cookies?
Cookies are very small text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. These cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or in some cases to a third party website that recognises that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to ‘remember’ this information on subsequent visits. Cookies can do many different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and generally improving the user experience.
More information on cookies is available at allaboutcookies.org
The specific cookies we use on networkforanimals.org are:
- Google Analytics: This is a third party service provided by Google used by many millions of websites. It allows us to collect completely anonymous information about visits to our website, which helps us improve our website over time. No personal data is stored in this cookie or sent to Google Analytics.
- Country: Some pages on our website are specifically for people in certain regions or countries, and other pages may have slightly different content depending where in the world you are (for example, our USA donate page defaults to US dollars). We determine your country when you visit our website and store the two-letter country code in a cookie (e.g. uk, de, us, etc). If you change your country (you can do this by clicking the flag icon at the top of the screen) we store your choice. No other personal data apart from the country code is stored in this cookie.
- WordPress: Our website is built using WordPress open source software. WordPress stores certain cookies in order for it to function (such as whether a visitor is logged in). However, this does not apply to the majority of our visitors, it affects only our editing, administration and technical teams.
