Types of cookies we use
Like most websites, Jessie’s Fund uses session cookies and persistent cookies. Neither session cookies nor persistent cookies collect any personally identifiable information.
We use session cookies, which last only for the duration of your visit (your ‘session’) and are deleted when you close your browser. These simply enable the website to identify that the same person is moving from page to page.
We also use certain cookies that are persistent, meaning that they last beyond your session. Persistent cookies help our website remember you as a user each time you use the same computer to revisit us. This helps us to know things like how many unique visitors we are getting to the site. Persistent cookies last for a pre-defined period unless they are deleted.
We use Google Analytics to allow us to track how popular our site is and to record visitor trends over time such as tracking which pages users go to. Cookies used for this purpose don’t contain any personally identifiable information – just your computer’s IP address (its unique number) to determine where in the world you are accessing the site from, and to track your page visits within the site.
Third party cookies
From time to time we may embed external content from other third party websites within our website. These include sites such as Facebook and Twitter, whose cookie usage policy you can view on their own websites.
How to manage cookies via your browser settings
You are able to delete cookies at any time by using the management tools within your browser. Some browsers also allow you to run in ‘incognito mode’, which would make you appear to us as an unknown individual. Visit www.aboutcookies.org for more information about cookies.
