The EU Directive on Privacy and Electronic Communications has stipulated that cookies are a useful tool for many activities and this policy explains a bit more about what cookies are and how they are used by the MBI Al JABER Foundation.
Cookies are simple text files sent to your computer, mobile device or tablet by websites. Once these cookies have been sent, the website can tell when that user has returned. The cookie cannot access or read any other information on the user’s computer or device and cannot harm their machine or discover any personal information about the user.
Cookies will only transfer information to the website which the users have already given to that website; for example which pages the user has looked at. Cookies therefore enable interactions between users and websites to be faster and more efficient.
In order to make full and efficient use of the MBI Al JABER Foundation site, the device you are browsing on will need to accept cookies. Cookies on our site enable users to navigate around the site more effectively. They are also used to check the performance of new designs, content and initiatives along with recording data on browser performance and effectiveness.
A cookie may also be delivered before accessing our site, for example if you link to us via a Google advertisement, unfortunately we have no control over these cookies. By using our website, you agree that we can place cookies on your device.
Types of Cookies
We use the following types of cookies on our site:
Analytics & Performance Cookies:
These are used to collect information on how our users navigate and use the site. No information about the user’s identity is collected and all information is anonymous. These are used to improve the functionality of the website and to deliver the optimum content to the users.
These types of cookies remember individual site preference. So for example if you want the text a certain size, or language, the cookie will remember your preference and tell the website to display the content thusly. All such information is anonymous and the cookies cannot identify any browsing patterns or habits you may have on any other websites.
These are used to aid navigation and deliver the specific services you have asked for. If these cookies are turned off, the browsing experience on our site will be compromised and a first rate service cannot be guaranteed.
Sometimes cookies are used to deliver advertisements that are relevant to a user’s interests. In addition they can reduce the amount of time a certain advert is viewed and can also measure the effectiveness of campaigns. Often these cookies are placed by external advertising networks and will remember which categories of site a user visits, before introducing the user to pertinent adverts on a number of websites.
MBI Al JABER Foundation occasionally uses third party digital organisations to attract new customers to our site in this fashion. Such behavioural advertising is based on your browsing habits over a period of time. So for example if you have recently been searching to buy or rent a new property you may suddenly start noticing a number of adverts for estate and letting agents on a variety of sites you visit.
MBI Al JABER Foundation cannot control, nor do we have access to any cookies that may be placed on your computer by any third party advertiser. Further down this page, we give detailed information on how you can opt in and out of all such targeted advertising.
