Does HHFA India use “cookies” on its websites?

HHFA India uses “cookies” on some webpages. A cookie is a small piece of data that is stored on a visitor’s hard drive but does not contain any personal information itself. Cookies enhance a visitor’s experience by preventing the visitor from having to log in or provide information each time he or she revisits a HHFA India webpage and by customizing content based on a visitor’s interests. Visitors can configure their browsers to refuse cookies or to be alerted when a site is attempting to send a cookie, although some HHFA India e-commerce pages will not function properly without accepting cookies. Third-party vendors, including Google, use cookies to show website visitors ads based on a visitor’s prior visits to the website. HHFA India also makes use of demographic information gathered via Google Analytics Demographics & Interests reports to gain a deeper understanding of the visitors to our website so that we can cater content to them accordingly while also tracking our success at reaching new populations of people. HHFA India also uses cookies to administer its websites, track visitor movement, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
