Information about our use of cookies 

This cookie policy explains how ORX use cookies and similar technologies to recognise you when you visit our website. It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them. 

What is a cookie? 

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that is placed on your browser or the hard drive of your computer. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive. 

Key concepts 

First and third-party cookies: whether a cookie is 'first' or 'third' party refers to the domain placing the cookie. First-party cookies are those set by a website that is being visited by the user at the time (e.g., cookies placed by www.orx.org). 

Third-party cookies: are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the website being visited by the user. If a user visits a website and another entity sets a cookie through that website this would be a third-party cookie. 

Persistent cookies: these cookies remain on a user's device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time the user visits the website that created that particular cookie. 

Session cookies: these cookies allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted. 

How to delete and block our cookies 

You block cookies by activating the setting on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our site. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies as soon you visit our site. Turning off or deleting cookies will not prevent device identification and related data collection from occurring.
