New website legislation and it how it affects your Cobham Sports site...
New legislation has come into effect that requires website owners throughout the EU to ensure people accessing any website are aware of any use of 'Cookies'.
It means we are required to tell you
- What cookies are present on "Our Websites" - namely www.cobhamrfc.com and www.cobhamsports.com;
- What those cookies are doing;
- The Important Bit. Ensure we are compliant in obtaining visitors' consent to store a cookie on their device
Cookies are small files that are stored on a Visitors' device and allows the website to recognise and track users. The Information Commissioner’s Office is the independent authority in the UK on this and you can read further information about their 'cookie' advice by clicking here.
1. Our Websites do not set any cookies directly. However we do use a third party tool called 'Google Analytics' as our website reporting tool and they set cookies on our behalf.
2. Google Analytics is free service offered by Google that generates statistics about the visitors to a website. This doesn't mean we know anything about you as an individual as the tracking is done anonymously. But you can disable this and Our Websites will continue to function although we will begin to lose the ability to learn how to improve those sites as this action will disable how our reporting software works.
Changing Google Analytics
If you want to opt out of being tracked by Analytics, visit the Google Analytics Opt-out page and install the add-on for your browser. For more details on installing and uninstalling the add-on, please see the relevant help resources for your browser. We've provided links for a few popular browsers below:
