This Cookie Policy explains how Positive Money uses cookies and other tracking technologies through our website (/org) This Cookie Policy is to be read alongside the Positive Money Privacy Policy (privacy-terms) which explains how Positive Money uses personal data.  If you do not accept our use of cookies please disable them following our guidance below.

What are web cookies?

Web cookies are small files that are placed on your computer or mobile device by a website when you visit it. They contain details of your browsing history on that website and distinguish you from other users. Cookies send data back to the originating website on each subsequent visit or allow another website to recognise the cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device and, for instance, remember your preferences and generally improve your online user experience. Like most websites, Positive Money uses cookies.

Although this policy refers to the general term “cookie”, which is the main method used by this website to store information, the browser’s local storage space is also used for the same purpose as cookies and we may use other tracking technologies through this website such as web beacons. As a result, the information included in this policy is likewise applicable to all cookies and tracking technologies that we use.

Why do we use cookies?

We use cookies for four main purposes:

  1. To let you do things on our website – for example, while you are signing a petition or making a donation, cookies remember your details and where you are in the process from page to page.

  2. To collect anonymous statistics – the information collected by cookies enables us to improve the website through usage figures and patterns. For example, it’s really useful for us to be able to see which campaigns are the most popular and how people are interacting with them.

  3. Social media – if you use Twitter or Facebook, cookies can help smooth the sharing process between our site and your online feeds.

  4. Measuring how cost-effective our advertising is – as a non-profit organisation, 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 (for example, signing a petition or making a donation).

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