1. Our First Party Cookies
First party cookies are cookies set by SRF and through the SRF website domain you are visiting (such as yogananda-srf.org). We set the following categories of first-party cookies.
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Site and use its features that you have requested, such as logging in to our Member Portal, filling out forms or placing items in your shopping cart. These cookies can also be used to remember preferences or choices for services you requested, such as selecting your language. You can set your browser to block these cookies, but some parts of the Site may not work then.
These cookies collect information about how visitors use our Site, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies do not collect information that specifically identifies a visitor. All information that these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. We use Google Analytics to process and analyze information from our Performance Cookies. Cookie information sent to Google Analytics is not linked to any personally identifiable information, is not used to track users across websites not owned by SRF, and we send only anonymized IP address information to Google.

2. Third-Party Cookies
Third party cookies are set by a third party (not SRF) and by a domain other than the SRF website domain you are visiting (a domain other than yogananda-srf.org).
We use third parties to enhance the functionality of our Site, and several of these third parties set Third Party Cookies. These third parties include PayPal (which we use to allow people to make payments or donations through PayPal), YouTube and Vimeo (which we use to support video and audio content), AddThis (which we use to allow visitors to share content via social media), and Twitter (which we use to allow people to share content to our Site). These third parties may set Functional Cookies and Targeting Cookies.
These cookies are used to provide services on the site, including providing payment functionality, video and audio playback, to include content, and the ability to share content on social media websites and services. You can set your browser to block these cookies, but then some parts of the site may not work.
These cookies may be set by third parties and used by those companies to track your activities on our site and other sites, to build a profile of your interests, and to show you relevant ads on other sites. They work by uniquely identifying your browser or device.
