Cookie Policy


What are cookies?

Cookies are tiny pieces of information that are placed on a computer or mobile device when you visit a website via your browser, such as Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari or Google Chrome. Cookies are a very common part of using almost all websites.

The cookies save some information about you for when you access the site again in the future. They do not usually directly identify you, but because your privacy is important to us you can choose not to allow some types of cookies.

You can learn more about the different types of cookies used on the Age International website below.


How do I turn off Cookies?

Most modern browsers will offer different ways to configure how they handle cookie. This can vary from only allowing cookies from websites that you trust to blocking all cookies by default.

As the steps for controlling your settings can vary for each browser, we've included links to the official instructions for the most common browsers below:

For more advice on managing cookies, have a look at the All About Cookies website.

Please note that switching off cookies may restrict your use of the website and/or delay or affect the way in which it operates.


Changes to this Cookie Policy

In keeping with legal requirements, we may need to update Age International’s cookie policy occasionally. A recent example of this is the EU General Data Protection Regulation (or GDPR).


Cookie consent

By using our website, our social media pages (such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram), subscribing to our services, and/or making a donation to us, you agree that, unless you disabled them within your internet browser, we can place the types of cookies set out below on your device and use that data in accordance with this Policy.


What types of cookies are there?

Broadly, there are 4 types of cookie:

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are essential to make a website work and enable features that users have specifically asked for. Without use of cookies, these features of the website could not operate.
  • Performance cookies. These cookies collect anonymous information about users for the purpose of assessing the performance of a website. Common uses include well-known web analytics tools such as Google Analytics.
  • Functionality cookies. These are cookies that automatically remember choices that users have previously made in order to improve their experience next time they visit a website. For example, where users select their preferred settings and layout.
  • Targeting or Advertising cookies. These cookies are similar to performance cookies, in that they collect information about users’ behaviour. However, this information is used at individual user level to advertise products and services to users on the basis of the behavioural information collected.

What Third Party cookies does the Age International website use?

Age International sometimes use 3rd party agencies to advertise and bring traffic to certain parts of the site, for example where we have a specific campaign. These cookie are placed by one of our 3rd-party agencies to allow them to track the activities of visitors that that have come to the site from their adverts.
