Some pages on this Web site employ "cookies." A cookie is a small file that a Web site transfers to your computer’s hard disk to allow the server to "remember" specific information about your session while you are connected. SBI Foundation may find it necessary to use the "cookies" system to collect data when you visit our web pages. This will help us find out which sections of our pages you are interested in.

Requests to send cookies are not designed to collect information about you, but only about your "browser session." The cookies make it easier for you to use the dynamic features of our Web site. The cookies and the information about your session are automatically destroyed shortly after you close your browser. The information is not permanently stored on your computer. No personal information about you is collected except as described above.

This website does not collect any personal information that identifies a visitor to this site individually unless specified otherwise. Your visit to this site will record only the Domain Name Server part of your e-mail address and of the pages visited within this website. The information we receive depends upon what you do when visiting our site. This information is used for management and enhancement of our Web site and also to prepare aggregate information about the visitors to the site and statistics on usage patterns.

If you identify yourself by sending an e-mail or ordering forms/brochures, we will only use this information to respond to your request and improve our Customer Services. Names and addresses are kept in our Customer Services system in order to follow up if necessary.

It will be possible for you to detect these "cookies" and, if you wish, delete them.To do this, we would remind you that your web browser software contains the option of blocking "cookies" on your computer:

If your web browser is Internet Explorer 3 or 4 (Microsoft):

If your web browser is Internet Explorer 5 (Microsoft):
Click on "tools",” internet options ", "security", "custom level". Under the "cookies" heading, select "prompt" or "disable" against the proposed options.

If your web browser is Navigator Gold 3 (Netscape):
Click on "options", "network preferences", "protocols". Among the various prompts that you can activate, the first is entitled "prompt before accepting a cookie". You will then be prompted when a "cookie" arrives and you can have it refused by your browser software.

Click on "edit", "preferences" and highlight "advanced". Select the required option.
