This is the Cookie Policy for The Sport Review Limited and for certain services provided through our website (“our site”).

We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. We aim to be as open and transparent as possible around the information we collect when you visit our websites, including through the use of “cookies”.

This policy explains what cookies are and how we use them. It also explains the different types of cookies we use, and how you can change or delete them.

For information on how your information is collected and used by us in general, please see our Privacy Policy.

1) What is a cookie?

1.1. Cookies are small text files they are stored by your browser onto your computer or mobile device. A cookie allows your preferences or actions across a site (or across different sites) to be remembered on subsequent visits. Cookies are widely used in order to make websites work or work in a better, more efficient way. They can do this because websites can read and write these files, enabling them to recognise you and remember important information that will make your use of a website more convenient (eg by remembering your user preferences).

1.2. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but if you do not want information collected this way, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to deny or accept the cookies feature (please read section 5 below for more details about how to do this).

1.3. We work with other third party organisations to provide the services on our website. A third party is an organisation which is not hosted at the domain address in your browser when you visit our website. These third parties may also use cookies on our website and can also place cookies on your device without you visiting their website directly. If you would like more information about third party cookies, please read section 4 below.

2) Cookie categorisation

To help you understand cookies, we have classified each cookie as one of the following:

(a) required cookie;

(b) analytics cookie;

(d) targeting or advertising cookie.

2.1. Required cookie
These cookies are essential to a website in order to provide necessary functionality, such as remembering your consent preferences. Without required cookies, certain services on a website may not be made possible and a website may not perform as smoothly as it should.

2.2. Analytics cookie
Analytics cookies collect information about the use of a website and help to improve the way a website works. For example, analytics cookies may help us understand which pages are the most popular. Analytics cookies do not collect information that identifies a user personally and all information that is collected by these cookies is aggregated and anonymous.

• Google Analytics – Google Analytics is a web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Service. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. You can opt-out of having made your activity on the Service available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. The add-on prevents the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) from sharing information with Google Analytics about visits activity.

2.3. Targeting cookie or advertising cookie
Targeting cookies or advertising cookies are used to deliver adverts which are more relevant to you and your interests, or to limit the number of times you see the same advert on a website. These types of cookies are also used to help measure the effectiveness of an adverting campaign. These cookies may be used to remember what you have looked at on a website.
