How we use cookies

What are cookies

Cookies are small files which websites store on your computer and which contain various types of information about your visit to a website. They are not viruses or malicious software but they are generally aimed at providing you with a good experience when browsing a site by, for example, remembering your preferences so that you do not need to reset them every time you visit the website.

Some cookies collect information about browsing behaviour by people who access this website via the same computer or device. This includes information about pages viewed and the user journey around a website. We do not, however, use cookies to collect or record information on users’ name, address or other contact details. We are able to use cookies to monitor individual user browsing behaviour but third parties are not able to identify users using cookies.

Cookies normally expire after a length of time which can vary from a few minutes to more than a year. Some cookies are ‘session cookies’ which are deleted when you close your internet browser or after a period of inactivity. Others are ‘persistent cookies’ which remain on your computer until their expiration date.

You may restrict or block cookies which are set by any website through your browser settings. Your browser settings also allow you to clear your browsing history and delete cookies. Information about how you can do this can be found on this link https://ico.org.uk/for-the-public/online/cookies

Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking

View the easy-read version. Click here 

Our website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).

As part of Google AdWords, we use conversion tracking.

What is conversion tracking?

When someone clicks on our advert served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. The cookie allows us to see how many people have seen the advert and then visited the subsequent page on our website. It helps us to track whether our Google AdWords campaign is effective.

Cookies are small text files that your internet browser stores on your computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to personally identify people. If someone visit certain pages of our website, and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and our website can tell that they clicked on the advert and proceeded to that page.

What do we do with the information?

The information obtained from the conversion tracking cookie is used to create conversion statistics. Google tells us the total number of people who clicked on our Google AdWords and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page of our website. No information that can be used to personally identify you is obtained by either Google or Camphill Village Trust.

If you do not want to participate in conversion tracking, you can opt-out by disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie on your browser setting. In doing so, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

You can configure your browser to inform you when cookies are used, so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be configured to automatically accept cookies under certain conditions, always reject them, or to automatically delete cookies when closing your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

Conversion cookies are stored based on Article. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour to optimize both its website and its advertising.

For more information about Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking, see Google’s Privacy Policy.

Google reCAPTCHA

We use “Google reCAPTCHA” on our website. This service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

Why do we use Google reCAPTCHA?

We use Google reCAPTCHA to check whether the information being entered on our website is being entered by a human and not by an automated program or’ bot’. You may see a pop up asking you to confirm that you are not a robot. Automated programs are used to stop fake submissions and fraudulent transactions.

We use reCAPTCHA when someone completes the online enquiry form or wants to donate to our charity.

How does it work?

reCAPTCHA analyses the behaviour of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (such as, IP address, how long the visitor has been on the website, or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis will be forwarded to Google.

The reCAPTCHA analyses take place in the background. Website visitors are not advised that such an analysis is taking place.
Data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its site from abusive automated crawling and spam.

Further information about Google reCAPTCHA and Google’s privacy policy is available on their website.
