Cookies Policy


Effective: January 8th, 2019


This cookie policy (this “Cookie Policy”) is provided to explain the practices of Changemaker Communities (“Changemaker Communities”, “us” or “we”) in relation to cookies on Changemaker Communities websites (collectively, the “Site”). We use cookies, pixel tags, web beacons, mobile device IDs and similar files or technologies to collect and store the information we automatically collect about your computer, device, and use of the Site.

Upon your first visit to the Site, there will be a pop-up notifying that if you  click “ACCEPT”, you agree to our use of cookies. We use cookies to provide you with a great experience and to help our Site run effectively. Not clicking “ACCEPT” may cause parts of this Site to not function as expected.

What Are Tracking Technologies?

Cookies are widely used in order to make a website work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the website.

Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. Cookies may tell us, for example, whether you have visited the Site before or whether you are a new visitor. They can also help to ensure that content you see online is more relevant to you and your interests.

There are two broad categories of cookies:

  • First party cookies, served directly by us to your device and are configured to not store information about you personally.

  • Third party cookies, which are served by a third party on our behalf. We use third party cookies for functionality and performance / analytics.

Cookies can remain on your device for different periods of time. Some cookies are 'session cookies', meaning that they exist only while your browser is open. These are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies are 'permanent cookies', meaning that they survive after your browser is closed. They can be used by the Site to recognize your computer when you open your browser and browse the Internet again.

If you would like to learn more about cookies, in general, see
