Does the GLOBAL WHITE LION PROTECTION TRUST use cookies on its websites?

The GLOBAL WHITE LION PROTECTION TRUST uses “cookies” on some web pages. A cookie is a small piece of data that is stored on a visitor’s hard drive but that does not itself contain any personal information. Cookies enhance a visitor’s experience by saving the visitor from having to log in or provide information each time he or she revisits an GLOBAL WHITE LION PROTECTION TRUST web page and by customising content based on a visitor’s interests. Visitors can configure their browsers to be alerted when a site is attempting to send a cookie and refuse the cookie, although some GLOBAL WHITE LION PROTECTION TRUST e-commerce pages will not function properly without accepting cookies.

The GLOBAL WHITE LION PROTECTION TRUST also uses cookies to administer the website, track visitor movement and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. Click here to read our Cookie Policy.
