Privacy and cookies policy
A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. This enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.
We may use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies on the website. Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.
We will use the session cookies to: keep track of you whilst you navigate the website; prevent fraud and increase website security; and other uses. We will use the persistent cookies to: enable our website to recognise you when you visit; keep track of your preferences in relation to the use of our website; and other uses.
NONE OF THE INFORMATION WE GATHER VIA COOKIES IDENTIFIES YOU AS AN INDIVIDUAL – IT IS ALL ENTIRELY ANONYMOUS.
Most browsers allow you to reject all cookies, whilst some browsers allow you to reject just third party cookies. For example, in Internet Explorer you can refuse all cookies by clicking “Tools”, “Internet Options”, “Privacy”, and selecting “Block all cookies” using the sliding selector. Blocking all cookies will, however, have a negative impact upon the usability of many websites, including this one.
Climb Any Mountain hereby referred to as, “CAM” “We” “Us” is a not-for-profit, voluntary organization working towards transforming the living conditions for people with intellectual disability and mental illnesses in South Africa. To help us promote our charitable objects we will sometimes ask you to provide certain personal information. Your privacy is extremely important to us and this Privacy Statement explains what information we may collect how we will use this information, the steps we take to protect that information and confirms your rights in respect of that information. We are fully committed to the principles of data protection and for the purposes of the Data Protection Act 1998, CAM is the data controller (i.e. the company who is responsible for, and controls the processing of, your personal data).
Information we collect about you as a visitor to the website
When you use this website, we may collect information about your computer, such as your IP address and/or browser which we will use for administration purposes and statistical analysis. We may also gather information about the use of our websites, such as which pages users visit and which ones are of most interest. This information will not usually identify you personally. We do this by placing a ‘cookie’, which is a small file, on your computer’s hard disk. Cookies are used for several reasons; to recognise you whenever you visit this website, to speed up access to this website (so you do not have to log on each time) and to store your personal preferences.
Most web browsers accept cookies. However, you can change your browser settings so that cookies are not accepted. The help menu on the menu bar of most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie and how to disable cookies altogether. However, cookies allow you to take full advantage of this web site and we recommend that you leave them turned on so that you do not lose some of the functionality of this website. If you do leave cookies turned on, for added security, be sure to close the browser when you finish using a shared computer.
