When you enter a website a cookie will automatically be downloaded to your computer. Cookies are text files which identify your computer to our server. Cookies in themselves do not identify the individual user, just the computer used. Many sites do this whenever a user visits their site in order to track traffic flows. Cookies themselves only record which areas of the site have been visited by the computer in question and for how long. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time, although this of course means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user.
You should read the information that came with your browser software to see how you can do this. Even assuming you have not set your computer to reject cookies, you can browse our sites anonymously until such time as you register your information with GLT.
Better understand our audience and supporters, for example by estimating our audience size and patterns and tracking the level of interest in our campaigns;
Track your preferences and personalise the site to your requirements and interests. For example: if on a previous visit you went to, say, the screening camps page, then we might find this out from your cookie and highlight particular information – which you may find interesting on a second visit;
Avoid lengthy registration/personalisation on each visit;
Display relevant promotion, communications and appeals on other websites you visit;
Improve and update our website.
GLT does not collect and analyse the data to create cookies directly; we use a specialist service provider which both collects information on your preferences from your visits to our website and analyses your preferences from cookies already stored in your browser. We obtain this information by enabling Google Analytics to analyse the traffic on our website via "Google Advertising Cookies". Google Advertising Cookies are a series of cookies already stored in your browser that compile data from your browsing preferences. You can see the types of cookies used by Google and learn more about the different categories in the Google Privacy & Terms. We may change our specialist service provider at any time without notice to you and will update this policy as necessary at that time.
Configure how we use your Google Analytics information. If you would like to opt out of all Google Analytics tracking services then you can install an Add-on. Find out about more about Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on. Alternatively you can use your browsers’ private browsing mode. Common browsers like Google Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer have this functionality.
We may share your data from your cookies with partners, agents or service providers to understand our supporters more effectively and to further GLT’s mission.
