FairPlay cookies policy

Cookie information

We are committed to being transparent about the technologies we use, and therefore we have outlined below how we use cookies when you visit our site.

 

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small snippet of text that a website asks your browser to store. All cookies have expiration dates in them that determine how long they stay in your browser. Cookies can be removed in three ways: automatically, when they expire, or when you or we manually delete them. We’ve included more details below to help you understand what kinds of cookies we use and to explain how you can control the use of cookies.

 

Does your site use cookies?

Yes, with the primary purpose to make our website work more effectively.

 

What kinds of cookies does your site use and why?

We use different kinds of cookies for various reasons:

  • Session cookies – these are temporary cookies that expire (and are automatically erased) whenever you navigate away from our site. We use session cookies for example to make sure you get redirected to the correct page when you click a link on the website. Most session cookies are essential for the functionality of our site but we may also use session cookies for advertising or analytics purposes.
  • Persistent cookies – these usually have an expiration date at a fixed point in the future and thus stay in your browser until they expire, or until you or we manually delete them. We use persistent cookies predominantly to store your preferences on the site. We also use persistent cookies for analytics purposes to better understand usage patterns so we can improve the site for our users.

 

Do your cookies collect my personal data?

Our cookies only collect anonymised information about our users and not your personally identifiable information (PII). We may, with your consent, collect your PII in other way and our privacy policy provides full details of how we may do this and the steps we take to protect your PII.

 

What other cookies might I encounter on your site?

There are also limited third-party cookies on the site. These cookies could be session or persistent and are set by entities other than us. To ensure compliance with our policies, we restrict the use of third-party cookies to our trusted partners. Examples of what we currently allow:

  • Audience measurement and validation – We use services such as Google Analytics to understand how many people come and what is popular which helps us improve the website. Additionally, we use tools to validate our understanding of that information for advertising.
  • Other functionality – For example we use YouTube for our video platform and YouTube collects performance data to better understand and analyse performance data from the website.

 

What kinds of cookies do you not use?

We do not use flash cookies (sometimes known as local shared objects, LSOs or supercookies).

 

How can I delete or disable cookies?

You can amend your browser settings to block some or all cookies. To do this, follow the instructions provided by your preferred web browser – see here for further information.

 

Will the site work if I disable cookies?

You can browse our site with cookies disabled, though some interactions may not work, for example you will not be able to log in to the site unless you have enabled cookies. For best usage of our site, we recommend you accept the suggested cookie use.

 

Why does the message explaining cookies keep appearing?

If you close the banner and it reappears the next time you visit us, you most likely have cookies disabled. We use a persistent cookie to remember that you closed the banner, but this only works when cookies on our site are enabled.
