14.   Cookies

A cookie is a small data file that certain websites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a member ID that the site uses to track the pages you’ve visited as well as anonymous information such as IP address, time, date, referring URL, pages accessed and documents downloaded type of browser and operating system. But the only personal information a cookie can collect and store is information you supply yourself.

Generally, cookies work by assigning a unique number to the user that has no meaning outside the assigning site. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. This random number lets us keep track of “how many” times customers are doing specific things – like visiting our site each month. We also use cookies to keep track of your shopping cart and to make sure you don’t see the same ad repeatedly. We use cookies to deliver content specific to your interests and to save your member ID.

Additionally, after you’ve entered your contact and delivery details during a session on our service, you can elect to save that information so you don’t have to re-enter it on your return to the site. If you do not want this information to be saved, you must indicate “DO NOT SAVE DETAILS” when prompted.

Users should be aware that Samaritan’s Purse cannot control the use of cookies or the resulting information by advertisers or third parties hosting data for Samaritan’s Purse/Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

If a user does not want information collected through the use of cookies, you may adjust your internet browser to disable the cookie feature; if cookies are disabled you may still use our website, but the website may be limited in the use of some of the features as cookies maybe necessary to provide the user with certain features (e.g., customised delivery of information) available on the Samaritan’s Purse website.

When we send you emails or other electronic messages, we may keep records if you open the message and click on particular links. This helps us to better understand what information is of interest to you.

In some cases third parties may use cookies and other technologies such as web beacons and JavaScript on the Samaritan’s Purse website in connection with online services like banner advertising, website analytics and surveys. This may allow them to collect information about your use of our website (including your computer’s IP address) which they may store in the United States or other countries.

The use of these technologies allows them to deliver customised advertising content, measure the effectiveness of their advertising, evaluate users use of the Samaritan’s Purse website and other websites and provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Those third parties may also transfer the information they collect to others where required to do so by law, or where those others process the information on their behalf. The services we may use from time to time include Google Analytics, Google Adwords, Adroll, Constant Contact and Mailchimp. You can find more details in the privacy policies for those services, including information on how to opt out of certain conduct.

We participate in some third party ‘online behavioural advertising’ (OBA), on a non-personally identifiable basis. This allows online advertising displayed to you to be tailored according to your browsing behaviour on various websites, not just our own. You can find you more details about OBA, the best practice guidelines and how to opt out from OBA with participating companies at the industry website www.youronlinechoices.com.au.
