Cookie Statement

Welcome!

As stated in our Privacy Policy, ADHRRF believes strongly in the values of privacy and transparency. To that end, we’ve created this cookie statement as a clear reference guide to the use of cookies on our site. This cookie statement explains how we use cookies (and other locally stored data technologies), how third-party cookies are used on the ADHRRF site, and how you can manage your cookie options. For more information on our privacy practices, please visit our Privacy Policy.

1. What is a cookie?

A “cookie” is a tiny data file that we transfer onto your computer, mobile phone, or any other device that you use to access the ADHRRF site, generally used for authentication and tracking. Every cookie expires after a certain period of time, but that period varies depending on what the cookie is used for and how your browser is configured.
A “session” cookie is one that generally expires when you close your web browser or mobile application. A “persistent” cookie is one that remains in your device, even after you close your browser or mobile application. A persistent cookie expires according to the duration set by us (or when you delete it manually).
You may remove or disable cookies through your browser settings. For more information on how to manage your cookie options, please see Section 4 of this Cookie Statement below.
For more information on this and other key terms that may be relevant, please read through the Privacy Policy Glossary of Wikimedia.

2. How do we use cookies?

We use the information we receive from cookies and other locally stored data to make your experience with the ADHRRF site safer and better, to gain a greater understanding of user preferences and interactions with the ADHRRF site, and to generally improve our services.
Cookies and other locally stored data, JavaScript, and tracking pixels help us do things like:
1) Provide you with a personalized experience, such as using cookies to know your language preference, to remember the user preferences you set so we can provide you with the customized look and feel that you want, and to tell you about the issues and events of human rights and religion in your area.
2) Deliver more relevant content to you faster. For example, we may use local storage to store your most recently read articles directly on your device, so they can be retrieved quickly. Also, we may use cookies to learn about the topics searched so that we can optimize the search results we deliver to you.
3) Understand how you use the ADHRRF site, so that we know what works and what is useful. For example, we might use cookies to learn about the list of articles you are following on your watchlist so that we can recommend similar articles that you may be interested in.
4) Understand how you use the ADHRRF site across different devices, so that we can make our site more efficient and effective for you.
5) Make the ADHRRF site more convenient to use, such as by using cookies to maintain your session when you log in or to remember your username in the login field.

3. How do third parties use cookies on the ADHRRF site?

Third-party cookies allow us to render services provided by third parties, such as “like” and “share” buttons. When a third party provides these kinds of services, they may require the use of a cookie in order to provide their services.
We will never use third-party cookies, unless we get your permission to do so. If you ever come across a third-party data collection tool that has not been authorized by you (such as one that may have been mistakenly placed by another user or administrator), please report it to us at tech@adhrrf.org.

4. What are my cookie options?

While this is not a comprehensive list, here are some of the things that you can do to limit use of cookies and other locally stored data on your device. You can:
1) remove or disable specific locally stored data on your browser’s settings;
2) use a browser that can block third-party cookies; or
3) install a plug-in to block locally stored data, if one is available.
We believe this data collection helps improve your user experience, but you may remove or disable some or all locally stored data through your browser settings, depending on your browser. While cookies and other locally stored data may not be necessary to use our site, some features may not function properly if you disable locally stored data.

5. Where can I find more information?
