Introduction

To make this website work properly, and to provide the most relevant products and services to our site visitors and platform users, we place small data files called cookies on your device when we have your consent to do so. This notice provides you with information about these cookies, what they do, your choice related to these cookies, and how to control them for this website.

What Is A Cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognizes that cookie, to develop a record of the user’s online activity. Cookies on this site may be delivered in a first-party representation (set by the YWAM Lausanne website) or third-party representation (set by another website) and may also be set in association with emails you receive from us.

Cookies help us enhance your experience when using the website. They also help us understand how people use our site, such as which pages are most popular, so that we can better serve our site users.

Cookies Used On This Site

There are four types of cookies that are used with this site: strictly necessary cookies, analytical cookies and performance cookies, functional cookies, and targeting cookies. Each of these cookies may be represented by YWAM Lausanne (a first party cookie) or one of our partners (a third party cookies). Because it is important for us to maintain transparency and foster choice, each of these are explained below.

Strictly Necessary Cookies

They are usually only set in response to actions made by the user which amount to a request for services, such as setting privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms.

Performance And Analytics Cookies

Performance and analytical cookies are similar with slight differences; they both provide information to the server or cloud service to track information that’s useful to the operator. Performance cookies provide reliability metrics, which can include but are not limited to network latency, packet loss, jitter, server-side delay and other helpful metrics. Analytical cookies provide information such as the number of unique web users, demographics, browser types encountered, length of stay on a webpage, length of stay on a website, and other analytics useful to a website operator.

We use Google Analytics cookies to collect information about how visitors use our website. Google Analytics employs both performance and analytical cookies. These cookies collect information in the aggregate to give us insight into how our website is being used and how it’s performing. We anonymize IP addresses in Google Analytics, and the anonymized data is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. The following table has more information about these cookies.
