How Our Website Uses Cookies and Similar Technologies

Cookies, LSOs, GIF Files, and Other Tracking Technologies

Some of our websites may use cookies, local shared objects (LSOs) and other tracking technologies to identify users who have previously visited so the user is recognized upon return, thereby saving them time while on our website. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our website. A cookie may be placed by us, or by vendors or service agencies who work with us or with our partners. Similar to a cookie, a Local Shared Object is a collection of data that a web site running Adobe Flash can place on your hard drive to recognize a repeat visitor and store settings and other information.

Our website and emails we send to you may contain transparent GIF files (also known as “web beacons,” “action tags,” or “pixel tags”) to help manage online advertising. These GIF files are used by us and our ad management partners to recognize when a visitor views a web page or opens an email. This information enables us to learn which emails and advertisements bring users to our website.

If you have provided us with personally identifiable information, e.g., through a registration or a request for certain materials, we may associate this personally identifiable information with information gathered through these tracking technologies. This allows us to offer increased personalization and functionality.

Some of our websites use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies to analyze use patterns and may collect information about your use of the website, including your IP address. More information on Google Analytics can be found here: www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. If you would like to opt-out of having your data used by Google Analytics, please use the Google Analytics opt-out available here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/. Other information on opt-outs for targeted advertisement delivery is available below. Please note that Dunham Foundation makes no representations regarding the functionality of Google opt-out mechanisms, and further, opting out of Google Analytics will not preclude the use of your data by other analytics services.

How Our Website Uses Social Media Plugins 

Our website may use social media plugins (e.g., the Facebook “Like” button, ‘“Share to Twitter”‘ button) to enable you to easily share information with others. When you visit our website, the operator of the social plugin can place a cookie on your computer, enabling that operator to recognize individuals who have previously visited our site. If you are logged into the social media website (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, Google+) while browsing on our website, the social plugins allow that social media website to receive information that you have visited our website. The social plugins also allow the social media website to share information about your activities on our website with other users of their social media website. For example, Facebook Social Plugins allows Facebook to show your Likes and comments on our pages to your Facebook friends. Facebook Social Plugins also allow you to see your friends’ Facebook activity on our website. Dunham Foundation does not control any of the content from the social media plugins. For more information about social plugins from other social media websites you should refer to those sites’ privacy and data sharing statements.


We do not knowingly collect information from persons we know to be under the age of 13 without their parental consent.  If you believe that we may have accidently received personal information from an individual under the age of 13, please contact us at info@dunhamfoundation.org. 

Links to Third Party Websites

Our website provides links to the websites of third parties that are not affiliated with the Foundation.  For example, our website may link to other nonprofits or Foundation partners.  This Policy does not apply to those third-party websites that may be accessed through a link on this Site. The linked websites, however, may collect personal information from you when you link to their websites. To ensure protection of your privacy, always review the privacy policies of the websites you visit by linking from the Site. Foundation is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any other website.   

Security of Our Website

The Dunham Foundation uses reasonable organizational, technical, and administrative due care   to protect personal information under our control. While we strive to use industry acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.  If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure, please contact us at info@dunhamfoundation.org.
