A cookie is a text file sent by a web server and placed on your computer by your web browser. Cookies can be usefully divided into two different types, session and persistent. Session cookies differ from persistent cookies primarily in that session cookies are temporary and expire and are normally deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies remain stored on your computer after you close your browser until they are deleted either because they expire or you delete them.

Cookies are often used in conjunction with other Internet technologies, such as web beacons, to understand behavior on the Internet. For example, The American Youth Foundation may use cookies in conjunction with web beacons, which are small sections of code that we may place in our Internet Services to understand the number of unique users that have visited a specific page. Similarly, we may use or receive reporting from tracking scripts that recognize unique cookies issued by another website. These tracking scripts are not used to gather information on your use of the Internet unrelated to The American Youth Foundation, and they do not identify you.

The American Youth Foundation uses cookies to identify unique visitors, identify unique sessions and to store information about a visitors’ session.  We utilize Google analytics to assess visitor interactions on our website.  Google Analytics also collects Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to provide and protect the security of the service, and to give us a sense of which country, state, or city in the world our users come from (also known as “IP geolocation”).
