Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, Supporting Humanity) are called "first party cookies". Only the website owner can access the first party cookies it sets. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies". Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and social sharing). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your device both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits other websites that have partnered with them.
We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons that are strictly necessary for our Website to operate, and we refer to these as "essential" cookies. Other cookies also enable us to provide Website functionality, or to enhance visitors' experience on our Website by providing them with personalised content and advertising. This is described in more detail below.
The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Website and the purposes they perform are described in the table below:
|Types of cookie||Cookie||Who serves these cookies||Change cookie settings|
|Essential website cookies: These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our Website and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas.||XSRF-TOKEN||Supporting Humanity||Because these cookies are strictly necessary to deliver the Website to you, you cannot refuse them.|
|Analytics and customisation cookies: These cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how our Website are being used or how effective are marketing campaigns are, or to help us customise our Website for you.||svSession||Supporting Humanity||To refuse these cookies, please follow the instructions below under the heading "How can I control cookies?"|
Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our Website [or opened an e-mail that we have sent them]. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, and to improve site performance. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will often impair their functioning.
You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. You can exercise your cookie preferences by changing your cookie settings in the cookie table above.
