For each visitor to our website, our server automatically recognises and stores the visitor's domain name. In addition, our website use cookies.

We also use cookies for tracking the statistics of our website. This allows us to better understand our users and improve the layout and functionality of our website.

Third party cookies 

To better communicate UNICEF’s work, we sometimes embed photos and video content from websites such as flickr and YouTube. Pages with this embedded content may present cookies from these websites. Similarly, when you use one of the share buttons on our website, a cookie may be set by the service you have chosen to share content through. UNICEF Australia does not control the dissemination of these cookies; you should check the relevant third party website for more information about these. In addition, if you linked to our websites from a third party website, we cannot be responsible for the privacy policies and practices of the owners or operators of that third party site and recommend that you check the policy of that third party site and contact its owner or operator if you have any concerns or questions.

We also recommend that you take appropriate security precautions when accessing the internet via public Wi-Fi networks or shared computers.
