The information we collect using cookies helps us understand users of our website better, so that we can provide a more focused user experience. Cookies basically have two functions:

a) to remember information previously entered by users; and

b) to save site preferences, and records users’ browsing activities (e.g. which pages are visited, each time and how often buttons are pressed).

We use cookies principally because we want to make our website user-friendly and work more efficiently, and we are interested in anonymous user behaviour. Cookies are also used to provide information to owners of websites. Generally cookies do not store sensitive or personally identifiable information such as your name and address or credit card details.

In the unlikely event that our website uses cookies to store personal information about you, The Badisa Children Foundation NPC (“Badisa”, “we”, “us”, “our”) encrypts the personal information to prevent unauthorised use by anyone else.

2. What Are Cookies?

Cookies are most often small text files that websites may put on a visitor’s computer or mobile device while browsing the website. They are used for many different purposes. For example, they can:

a) help search engines remember that you want your search results in English;

b) help a website remember your preferences so that you don’t need to customise it every time;

c) help websites to deliver a better service by showing you the content most relevant to you;

d) identify and resolve errors; and

e) analyse how well a website is performing.

The most common function of cookies is to remember bits of information that help make browsing the web easier and more hassle-free for you.
