What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small snippet of text that a website asks your browser to store. All cookies have expiration dates in them that determine how long they stay in your browser. Cookies can be removed in two ways: automatically, when they expire, or when you manually delete them. We’ve included more details below to help you understand what kinds of cookies we use.

Does FREEMASONRY.network use cookies?
Yes, with the primary purpose to make our website work more effectively.

What are session and persistent cookies?
Session cookies – these are temporary cookies that expire (and are automatically erased) whenever you close your browser. An example of how we use session cookies is to grant access to content and enable commenting (things you have to log in to do).
Persistent cookies – these usually have an expiration date far into the future and thus stay in your browser until they expire, or until you manually delete them. An example of how we use persistent cookies is for functionalities like the “Stay logged in” tickbox. We also use persistent cookies to better understand usage patterns so we can improve the site for our customers. This information is anonymised – when we look at the data, in other words, we look at patterns, but we do not see individuals’ personally identified information (PII).

In what circumstances does FREEMASONRY.network use cookies, and why?
We use different kinds of cookies for various reasons outlined below. All cookie information is completely anonymised ie we do not see individuals’ PII.
There are also limited third-party cookies on the site. These cookies could be session or persistent and are set by entities other than FREEMASONRY.network. To ensure compliance with our policies, we restrict the use of third-party cookies to trusted partners of Eduvolution®. For example, we currently allow:
-Essential cookies – these cookies are all first party cookies that are essential for the operation of our website. For example, some cookies allow us to identify subscribers and ensure they can access the subscription pages.
-Functional cookies – these cookies remember your log-in details if you have the “Stay logged in” box ticked which makes it possible for registered users to return to the site without having to log in. Functional cookies also make sure the website looks consistent as well as allowing us to analyze site usage so we can measure and improve performance.
We use a functional cookie to remember your cookie preference from our ‘Cookie preference’ tool as well as to provide you with enhanced services like commenting.
In addition, we use functional cookies for Audience measurement and validation. We use services such as Omniture, Chartbeat, and Google Analytics to understand how many people visit us and what is popular, which helps us improve the website. Additionally, we use tools like Quantcast and Comscore to validate our understanding of that information for advertising purposes.
When you register or log in to FREEMASONRY.network with credentials from social networks like Facebook or Twitter, you authorise them to store a persistent cookie that will remember you and grant you access to our site every time you visit until it expires. You can delete that cookie (and revoke the access it grants) by updating your preferences with each respective social network. So if you no longer want to be able to log in through Facebook, you’ll need to update your settings at Facebook.
-Advertising cookies – these cookies allow you to share pages with social networks should you wish to do so. They also enable us and our advertisers to serve you with relevant advertisements that may interest you through a practice often called OBA, or online behavioral advertising. You might see these advertisements on  https://freemasonry.network and on other sites you visit, including our advertising network, Ideas People Media. They are sometimes referred to as ‘behaviourally targeted advertising cookies’ and track information such as which websites you visit and build a profile based on your interests. We however do not collect your personal or sensitive information.
There are also other limited third-party cookies on the site that fall into the ‘Advertising cookies’ category. These cookies could be session or persistent and are set by entities other than The Economist. To ensure compliance with our policies, we restrict the use of third-party cookies to trusted partners of Eduvolution®. For example, we currently allow:
Brightcove for our multimedia platform, Doubleclick (Google) for our advertising platform. Those teams set cookies in order to control frequency of advertising and to target advertising to the right section or geographic region;
We use third party data from validated third party sources (such as Bizo Private Audience Targeting) acquired through BlueKai Data Exchange, to enable us to target advertising by establishing a particular audience demographic based on cookie data. These are validated by BlueKai, not by us.
You can opt out of these cookies at any time – to learn how to do this or if you would like to learn more about how advertisers use these types of cookies, please visit http://www.youronlinechoices.eu if you are based in the EU. If you are based in the United States and would like to learn more, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/. You can also use our cookie preference tool, located at the footer of our site pages to opt-out from all advertising cookies, if you wish to do so. Please note that we are not responsible for the content of external websites.

Do any of the cookies that FREEMASONRY.network use contain my personal details?
No. All the data contained in the cookies that we use is completely anonymous and doesn’t contain any PII.

Does FREEMASONRY.network use cookies to sell customer information?
No.

How can I change my preferences, delete or opt-out of cookies?
Please use our “Cookie Preferences” tool.
Alternatively, whilst we are not responsible for the content of any external websites, we set out some websites below which may help if you wish to delete or opt-out of cookies.

To opt out of cookies from Bizo: www.bizo.com/businessProfessionals/opt_out

Will the site work if I disable cookies?
You can browse FREEMASONRY.network with cookies disabled, though some interactions may not work. For example, ticking the “Stay logged in” box at login will not actually keep you logged in to the site unless you have enabled cookies.

How long will cookies last for?
We limit the lifetime of our cookies to 13 months and so you will be asked about your cookie preferences again no later than 13 months since the last time we asked you. You can of course opt-out of cookies and update your consent at any time during your experience through our cookie preference tool. If you do not opt-out of cookies or subsequently update your consent, and continue to use our sites, you consent to the use of cookies as described. If you choose to opt-out of cookies or remove your consent subsequently, we will necessarily have to ask you about your cookie preferences when you use our sites. The pop-up message will therefore reappear more regularly. For further detail please see the “Why does the message explaining cookies keep appearing?” section below.

Why does the message explaining cookies keep appearing?
A pop-up message will appear the first time someone visits our site to notify them of our use of cookies and how to change preference. There is a 20 second timer on this after which the pop-up will disappear. If you continue to get this pop-up then you most likely have cookies disabled or you have opted out of functional cookies. We use a persistent cookie to remember your preferences, but this only works when cookies on our site are enabled and functional cookies are allowed.

Who is our ‘Cookie Preference’ tool provider?
We have chosen to use TRUSTe as our ‘cookie preference’ tool provider, utilising their ‘consent manager’ technology. to provide our users with an easy and transparent ‘cookie preference’ tool. TRUSTe is a leading Data Privacy Management company which assesses, monitors, and certifies websites, mobile apps, cloud, and advertising channels in relation to data collection and usage practices. The company incorporates regulatory requirements and industry best practices. More information on TRUSTe can be found at their website: http://www.truste.com/about-TRUSTe/although please note that we are not responsible for any content on external websites.

What changes have been made to the cookies policy?
No changes yet since 27.12.2017.
