    MSF Luxembourg cookies notice

    We use “cookies” to identify you when you visit our website.

    What are cookies?

    Cookies are small text files that are transferred from the website to your computer, phone or tablet. Websites store cookies on your internet browser (Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer, for example) when you visit. Every time you return to the site and navigate around it picks up these bits of information. 

    Why do websites use cookies?

    There are several types of cookie and they each have different functions and uses. Some cookies can be really helpful and most websites rely on them in order to work properly and to understand what their users do when they visit.

    Types of cookies

    The four categories, from the least to the most intrusive, are:

    1. Strictly necessary. These cookies let you move around the website and use areas like the donate form, log in and e-news sign up. They don't gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remember where you've been on the internet.

     These cookies only last until you close your browser. 

    2. Performance. These cookies help us understand how you use our website and if users have had any problems. They also let us know if you see one of our adverts online or click on our banners.

    The information they gather is anonymous. We only use the information to improve the way the Website works.

    3. Functionality. These cookies remember any choices you've made on a website. This could be changing the text size, preferences or colour. They can also remember if you've already completed a survey. They can’t track you on other websites.

    4. Targeting. These cookies collect info for third parties and remember what you looked at on a website. They’re used for things including ‘Like’ and ‘Share’ buttons, as well as online advertising. Do you see ads for things you've looked at online appear on random websites? It's because of targeting cookies.

    The cookies we use

    2. Performance. These cookies allow us to track the number of visits to our site, as well as traffic sources, in order to measure and improve its performance. They help us know which pages are the most read and which are less popular, and to see how visitors navigate the site from one page to another. 

    All the information that these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies, we will not know how you browse our site and will therefore not be able to improve its performance. 

    Three cookies: _gat, _gid, _ga - These cookies were created by Google Analytics, a statistics tool.

    3. Functionality. These cookies enable the website to offer enhanced functionality and personalisation. They may be configured by us or by third-party providers whose services we have integrated into our pages. If you do not allow these cookies, some or all of these services may not function properly.

    One cookie: has_js - We use Drupal as a content management system for our website. Drupal uses this cookie to determine whether JavaScript is enabled in a visitor's browser.

    4. Targeting.
    These cookies are set up on our site by partners whose services we use. They may be used by these companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant ads on other sites. For example, you will be able to find cookies posted by Facebook and Google, advertising their respective social networks. They do not directly store personal data but are based on your browser’s unique identification number. If you do not allow these cookies, the advertising you see will be less relevant to you.
