Barnardo’s (“we”, “us” or “our”) collects certain information by automated means when you visit our website or use any of our apps, such as how many users visited our website and the pages accessed.

Cookies
 
 
Cookies are bits of text that are placed on your computer’s hard drive when you visit certain websites. We may use cookies to tell us, for example, whether you have visited us before or if you are a new visitor and to help us identify site features in which you may have the greatest interest. Cookies may enhance your online experience by saving your preferences while you are visiting a particular site. Those cookies are set by us and called first party cookies.

Web Beacons
 
 
Certain pages on our website or apps may contain “web beacons” (also known as Internet tags, pixel tags and clear GIFs). These web beacons allow third parties to obtain information such as the IP address of the device that downloaded the page on which the beacon appears, the URL of the page on which the beacon appears, the time the page containing the beacon was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page, and the information in cookies set by the third party.

IP Addresses
 
 An IP address is a unique identifier that certain electronic devices use to identify and communicate with each other on the Internet. When you visit our website or apps, we may view the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet. We use this information to determine the general physical location of the device and understand from what geographic regions our website visitors come. We also may use this information to enhance our website.
