Cookie Policy

Effective: February 8, 2022

When you visit or interact with any website, or interactive features or online services, owned and operated by Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights (“Sites”), we and third-party business partners, including third party advertising and analytics companies, may use a variety of technologies that automatically or passively collect certain information when you visit or interact with our Sites (“Usage Information”).

Note that many browsers and devices allow you to block the transmission of automatically collected information, such as your IP address, or to block the installation of cookies. In addition, we may offer you tools to change your cookie settings. You may choose to enable these options. However, enabling these options may prevent you from using many of the core features and functions available on our Sites.

The technologies that may be used to collect Usage Information include the following:

Cookies. When you use our Sites, RFK Human Rights may store data in “cookies” or similar technology on your devices, which are data files placed on your computer or other device when you visit the Sites or otherwise access our online content. We use both session and persistent cookies (which remains on your computer after the browser has been closed). RFK Human Rights may use cookies for many purposes, including, without limitation, to collect information about how you use our Sites (including to track the pages you’ve visited), to remember you and your settings and your preferences, to show you personalized content based on information we have collected or inferred about you, such as your interest in human rights and donating, and providing you with targeted advertising and campaigns elsewhere online. This information allows us to customize your RFK Human Rights experience so that your visit is as relevant and as valuable to you as possible.

Web Beacons. We may use web beacons (small graphic images or other web programming code, also known as “1×1 GIFs” or “clear GIFs”) and similar technologies on our Sites and within our communications to you. Web beacons can recognize certain types of information on your computer such as cookies, the time and date a page is viewed, and a description of the page where the web beacon is placed. Web beacons or similar technologies may be used for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, to count visitors to the Sites, to monitor how users navigate the Sites, to count how many e-mails that were sent were actually opened or links were actually viewed and to improve your experience on the Sites. Our web beacons may collect some contact information (for example, the email address associated with an email message that contains a web beacon).

Embedded Scripts. An embedded script is programming code that is designed to collect information about your interactions with the Sites, such as the links you click on. The code is temporarily downloaded onto your device from our web server or a third party service provider, is active only while you are connected to the Sites, and is deactivated or deleted thereafter.

In addition, we may use a variety of other technologies that collect similar information for security and fraud detection, site functionality and operational purposes.
