Cookies Policy

1. Introduction

1. Our website uses tracking technologies known as “cookies”, which are used for a variety of purposes. You can set your cookie preferences for the SSRF site both through the pop-up bar at the bottom of the page, and through the settings in your browser.

Most web browsers  are set to accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually choose to set your browser to remove cookies and to block cookies. If you choose to remove cookies or block cookies, this could affect certain features or performance of our website. You also always have the ability to change your settings.

Some of these are first-party cookies, i.e., placed by our website and some are cookies placed by a third-party. For your convenience, we have listed the cookies at the end of this document, with the duration for which each shall remain in your system, in the event you don’t opt out, (where available), until you erase them specifically

Third party applications that are embedded in our website, including for donation and payment processing, use their own cookies, and are not within our control. For questions regarding their use of cookies, we recommend that you read their cookie policies before proceeding.

2. How do we use Cookies?

There are a number of different types of cookies, however, our website uses primarily “Strictly Necessary”, “Functional”, “Performance”, and “Targeting” types of cookies. Detailed descriptions of the functions each category of cookie serves is noted below, along with the listing of the cookies on our website that fall into those categories.

3. How to manage cookies

You can set your browser to not accept cookies. However, in a few cases, some of our website features may not function as a result. You  also have the option of setting your cookie preferences on our website (see: pop up bar at the bottom of the webpage)

There are three ways in which cookies can be classified: Lifespan, Provenance and Purpose (or “Type”).

For purposes of clarity, we have broken them out into the four “Purpose” or “Type” sections, as listed above, and you may opt in or out at any time, to any of these sections.

As explained by GDPR (

3.1 Lifespan

  • Session cookies— These cookies are temporary and expire once you close your browser (or once your session ends).
  • Persistent cookies— This category encompasses all cookies that remain on your hard drive until you erase them or your browser does, depending on the cookie’s expiration date. All persistent cookies have an expiration date written into their code, but their duration can vary. According to the ePrivacy Directive, they should not last longer than 12 months, but in practice, they could remain on your device much longer if you do not take action.

3.2 Provenance

  • First-party cookies— As the name implies, first-party cookies are put on your device directly by the website you are visiting.
  • Third-party cookies — These are the cookies that are placed on your device, not by the website you are visiting, but by a third party like an advertiser or an analytic system.

If you have any questions or concerns about our Cookie Policy or use of Cookies, please contact us at [email protected]. You can also read more about collection, storage and protection of information in our data Privacy Policy.
