This Policy describes how and why Stichting Wildlife Justice Commission (“WJC”, “we”, “us” or “our”) uses cookies on our website

What are Cookies

A cookie is a small piece of data (text file) that a website or app – when visited by a user – asks your browser to store on your device in order to remember information about you, such as whether or not you have consented to our use of cookies. Those cookies are set by us and are called first party cookies.

We also use third party cookies – these are cookies from a domain different than the domain of the website you are visiting – for example for marketing and advertising purposes.

How we use Cookies

Our website uses two types of cookies: persistent and session cookies. Persistent cookies are cookies that remain on your device for a certain period of time (as indicated in the table below) or until you manually delete them or object to them. Session cookies are cookies that expire at the end of the browser session (e.g., when you leave our website and close your browser).

We use strictly necessary cookies to (i) recognize you as a return user, (ii) secure and provide you with our website (e.g. website formatting), and (iii) save some of your preferences (e.g. cookie consent).

We use non-essential (non-strictly necessary) cookies to (i) to deliver targeted advertising on the basis of your profile, browsing behaviour and/or location, (ii) allow you to connect with us on social media and share content on social media, (iii) show you relevant content (e.g. videos embedded in our website supported by third parties), and (iv) observe and analyse traffic levels and other metrics on our website, which helps us improve our website as well as your overall user experience. We only use non-essential cookies where we have your consent (see below).

Cookies may be first party or third party, meaning they are operated by us (first party) or by another party (third party). Please note that interactions with the third party cookies on our website are governed by the privacy and cookie policies of the third party.

Further information on the types of cookies we use is set out below.

Managing Cookies

On your first visit to our websites/apps, on the homepage you will see a cookie banner informing you why cookies are used, and asking you to consent to each non-essential cookie if you agree with us using them. If you do not agree, you can select “Decline”.

You can change your cookie preferences through the cookie banner, where you have the option of opting-in or opting-out to the use of non-essential cookies on your device. However, you can also update your cookie preferences by changing or withdrawing your content.

Please note that you cannot disable strictly necessary cookies since these affect the functionality of our website and your ability to use certain features and functionalities.
