Cookie Policy – Public website

This Cookie Policy explains how we use cookies and other tracking technologies through our website https://neweconomyorganisers.org/ (the “Site”). This Cookie Policy is to be read alongside the New Economy Organisers Network Privacy Policy (https://neweconomyorganisers.org/privacy-policy/), which explains how we use personal data. If you do not wish to accept our use of cookies, then please disable them following the guidance below.

What are cookies?

Web cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or mobile device by a website when you visit it. Cookies allow a website to recognise a user’s device and may be used to enable a website to function or to provide information to the owners of a website, for instance to remember your preferences in order to improve your online user experience. Like most websites, our Site uses cookies.

Although this Policy refers to the general term “cookie”, which is the main method used by our Site to store information, the browser’s local storage space is also used for the same purpose as cookies and we may use other tracking technologies through this website such as web beacons. As a result, the information included in this Policy is likewise applicable to all cookies and tracking technologies that we use.

You can find out more about cookies at www.allaboutcookies.org.

Why do we use cookies?

We use cookies for five main purposes:

  1. To let you do things on our website – for example, while you are applying to a training or making a donation, cookies remember your details and where you are in the process from page to page.
  2. To improve your experience of our website – for example, to hide a form if you’ve already seen it, or to prevent you having to re-enter your details when you have already done so.
  3. To collect anonymous statistics – the information collected by cookies enables us to improve the website through usage figures and patterns. For example, it’s really useful for us to be able to see which campaigns are the most popular and how people are interacting with them.
  4. Social media – if you use Twitter or Facebook, cookies can help smooth the sharing process between our site and your online feeds.
  5. Measuring how cost-effective our advertising is – as a non-profit organisation, we need to watch our advertising spend carefully. Cookies are used to help us see how many people who click our adverts go on to do something further (for example, signing a petition or making a donation).

The table below provides more information about the cookies we use and why.
