Alpine Eagle Foundation Cookie Policy

  1. Introduction

This Alpine Eagle Foundation Cookie Policy (the “Cookie Policy”) describes the different types of cookies used in connection with the website owned and controlled by the Alpine Eagle Foundation (the “Website”).

You have access to this Cookie Policy on the Website.

As the data controller, the Alpine Eagle Foundation defines the methods and end purposes of the processing of your personal data as described in this Cookie Policy.

In addition to this Cookie Policy, the Website is governed by a Privacy Policy which will provide you with additional information about the processing of your personal data.

  1. What is a cookie?

A cookie is a kind of digital tag that keeps track of your website visit. Almost every website uses cookie technology. A cookie will usually contain the name of the domain from which it originated, its “lifestime”, as well as a value, usually corresponding to a unique randomly generated number. Cookies are downloaded by your internet browser the first time you visit a website. They play an important role in the proper functioning of websites, in their improvement and in making them more efficient, in particular by recognising you and remembering information likely to facilitate your use of the website (e.g. by remembering your preference settings).

Internal cookies and third-party cookies

Cookies are downloaded to your device (e.g. your computer, smartphone or tablet) via your internet browser the first time you visit the Website.

The next time you visit the Website using the same device, the cookie (as well as the information it contains) is sent back either to the website that created it (internal cookie) or to a different website to which it belongs (third-party cookie).

If you reject the use of all cookies, neither internal cookies nor third-party cookies will be used. There will be no distinction between the two types of cookie.

Permanent cookies and session cookies

Depending on their “lifetime”, cookies can be “permanent” or “session”.

A permanent cookie is a cookie stored on your computer until it expires or is deleted by you.

A session cookie, however, is deleted when you end your browser session.

In addition to accepting cookies when visiting the Website, as described below, you can generally choose whether or not to accept cookies by modifying your browser settings. For more information, please see Section 4 “How to manage cookies”.

  1. What kind of cookies do we use?

Strictly necessary cookies:

Strictly necessary cookies activate features that are essential for browsing the Website. They are used exclusively by the Alpine Eagle Foundation and are only stored on your computer while you browse the Website. For example, when you change pages, these cookies facilitate the redirection from http pages to https pages, which maintains the level of security of the transferred data. A cookie of this type also allows you to save your preferences regarding the use of cookies on our Website.

The main cookies we use are PHP session cookies.

Analytics / performance cookies:

These are cookies that allow us to monitor the use and performance of the Website, to compile statistics, volumes of visitor traffic and the use of various elements (e.g. content visited, pathway) for the purpose of improving the value and usability of our services.

These analytics cookies are implemented by Google Analytics.

Third-party cookies

The Website includes third-party computer applications, such as YouTube, which allows us to make videos available on the Website. When you view a video, third-party YouTube cookies are installed. When you interact with our donation form, strictly necessary cookies are installed by Stripe (our payment services provider).

The Website may also contain sharing links to Facebook, Instagram and other similar social networks, which allow you to share Website content with others. When you use these sharing buttons, a third-party cookie is installed by the relevant social network. If you are connected to the social network while browsing the Website, the sharing buttons allow you to link the content viewed to your user account.

These third-party cookies are governed by the privacy policies of these third-party providers.
