Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Web beacons or other similar files can also do the same thing. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
There are many functions cookies serve. For example, they help some websites remember your username and preferences, analyse how well the website is performing, or even allow the website to recommend content it believes will be most relevant to visitors.
Certain cookies contain personal information – for example, if you click to “remember me” when logging in, a cookie will store your username – but it is worth noting that most browsers will also offer to remember usernames and passwords on many websites.
Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our websites, or a user’s general location.
We use Zoho Campaigns to send informative emails to our members. Our emails may contain a single, campaign-unique “web beacon pixel” to tell us whether our emails are opened and verify any clicks through to links within the email. We may use this information for purposes including determining which of our emails are more interesting to members, to query whether members who do not open our emails wish to continue receiving them. You may opt out of receiving these emails by either emailing the membership registrar on firstname.lastname@example.org or clicking on “opt out” on the foot of the email.
