This Cookie Notice (“Notice“) explains how Africa Advocacy Foundation (“AAF”) uses cookies and other tracking technologies across our websites: https://www.africadvocacy.org/ and https://www.mihealtheurope.org/.  This Notice is to be read alongside the Privacy Notice, which explains how AAF uses personal information.

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, AAF’s websites use cookies.

You can find out more about cookies at www.allaboutcookies.org.

Why do we use cookies?

  • To let you do things on our website — for example, cookies enable you to log in to secure areas of our website, fill in forms or view content.
  • To collect anonymous statistics — the information collected by cookies enables us to improve the website through usage figures and patterns. For example, it is really useful to see which pages of the website — and therefore which of our programmes — are the most popular and how users are interacting with them.
  • To improve your experience of our website — for example, to prevent you having to re-enter details when you have already done so, or by ensuring that users can find what they are looking for easily.
  • To ensure that our website is secure — for example, to make sure that personal information that you give to us does not fall into the wrong hands.
  • To provide you with information and content which we think is relevant to you — for example, to work with our partners to serve you with targeted advertising.
