About web cookies

Web cookies are small snippets of text saved on your computer or mobile device that distinguish you from other users of a website. Like most websites, COSMICONTACT uses cookies.

We use cookies for five main purposes:

  1. To let you do things on our website – for example, if you make a donation or surf on our pages, cookies remember where you are in the process from page to page.
  2. To improve your experience of our website – for example, so you only get asked to take a survey once, or to hide a form if you’ve already seen it.
  3. Collect anonymous statistics – it’s really useful for us to be able to see which pages are the most popular and how people are using 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 charity, 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. These cookies expire after 30 days of inactivity and do not contain information that can personally identify you.

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