What Is A Cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that a cloud service or website saves on your computer, phone, tablet or other mobile device when you visit the website. Once these files are installed on your system, the cookies are transmitted back to the originating cloud service or website on each subsequent visit, enabling the service to recognize returning users with their saved preferences and user selections. In some cases, other affiliated websites may recognize the same cookie, enabling cookies to be shared across related services.

Cookies on this site may be delivered in a first-party representation (set by YWAM) or third-party representation (set by another website), and may also be set in association with emails you receive from us. Please be aware that third-party cookies are cookies are set by an entity other than the website owner for purposes such as collecting information on user behavior, demographics, or personalized marketing. An example of a third-party cookie could be youtube.com or doubleclick.net and others, where these third-party tools could be used within the YWAM website; in those cases, the cookie is controlled by the third-party. These cookies enable embedded content to function properly, such as YouTube videos, Facebook advertising, Instagram feeds, PayPal payment processing forms, application forms or other tools.
