What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that Youth Leads stores on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.

Why does the Website use cookies?

Youth Leads uses cookies to distinguish you from other users of the Website. This helps Youth Leads to provide you with a good experience when you browse the Website and allows us to improve the Website. 

What cookies does this Website use?

Youth Leads uses the following cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of the Website and include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of the Website.
  • Analytical/performance cookies. These allow Youth Leads to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the Website when they are using it. This helps Youth Leads to improve the way the Website works (for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily).
  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise you when you return to the website. This enables Youth Leads to personalise Youth Leads’s content for you and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
  • Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to the Website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. Youth Leads will use this information to make the Website and any advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. Youth Leads may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.

Most of the Website’s cookies expire within 30 days, although the analytics cookies may persist for up to ten years.

Third-party cookies

Please note that third parties (including, for example, providers of external services like web traffic analysis services and third-party advertising partners and sponsors whose advertising material may appear on the Website from time to time) may also set cookies, over which Youth Leads has no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or advertising and targeting cookies.

Advertising and targeting cookies are used to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to you. They are also used to chart the effectiveness of a particular advertising campaign by tracking users’ clicks. They can remember that you have visited a website and this information may be shared with other organisations, including other advertisers. However, they cannot determine your personal identity, as the data collected is never linked to your profile.
