Cookies in use on this website:

We use session cookies which only last as long as your online session, and disappear from your computer or device when you close your browser (like Internet Explorer or Safari).

Strictly necessary cookies let you use all the different parts of the this website effectively. Without them, some services can’t be provided. We have set strictly necessary cookies that collect information on which web pages visitors go to most often so we can improve our online services.

Third party cookies can be present in your browser, which are set by someone other than the owner of the website you’re visiting. Some Swiss Church web pages may also contain content from other sites like Facebook, YouTube or Twitter, which may set their own cookies. Also, if you share a link to a Swiss Church page, the service you share it on (for example, Facebook) may set a cookie on your browser. We have no control over third-party cookies – you can turn them off, but not through us.

Some websites use advertising networks to show you specially targeted adverts when you visit. These networks may also be able to track your browsing across different sites. We don’t set advertising cookies on this website.
