We ask that you read this cookie policy carefully as it contains important information about who we are and our use of cookies in connection with our website. As cookies and the data collected by them may constitute personal data, this policy should be read in conjunction with our Privacy Notice, which sets out how and why we collect, store, use and share personal data, as well as your rights in relation to your personal data and details of how to contact us and the ICO in the event you have a complaint.

This website is operated by Engagesport LLP. Our registered office is at Dumfries House, Dumfries Place, Cardiff, CF10 3ZF and our partnership number is OC376133 . We are a sports marketing agency, specialising in sponsorship acquisition and activation, event management and the management of professional rugby players.

This cookie policy only relates to your use of our website, www.engagesport.com.

However, on our website, we may link to other websites owned and operated by certain trusted third parties. These other third party websites may also use cookies or similar technologies in accordance with their own separate cookie polices. For privacy information relating to these other third party websites, please consult their cookie policies as appropriate.

A cookie is a small text file which is placed onto your device (e.g. computer, smartphone or other electronic device) when you use a website. Cookies are used by operators of websites for various purposes, including to enable you to navigate between the different pages on a website, to recognise users when they return to a website and to count the name of visitors to a website.

 

Cookies generally fall into one of the following categories:

 

  • Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of a website. They include, for example, cookies that enable users to log into secure areas of a website, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.

 

  • Analytical/performance cookies. These types of cookies allow organisations to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around their website when they are using it. This assists organisation to improve the way their website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.

 

  • Functionality cookies. These are used to recognise users when they return to a website. They enable the personalisation of content, the recognition of users and remember user preferences (for example, their choice of language or region).

 

  • Targeting cookies. These cookies record a user’s visit to a website, the individual pages visited and the links followed. If the cookie is set by a third party which also monitors traffic on other websites (see below), this type of cookie may also be used to track a user’s movements across different websites and to create profiles of their general online behaviour. Information collected by tracking cookies is commonly used to serve users with targeted online advertising.

 

In addition, cookies can be further categorised as:

 

  • Session cookies. These allow a website to link your actions during a particular browser session. Session cookies expire each time you close your browser and do not remain on your device afterwards.

 

  • Persistent cookies. These are stored on your device in between browser sessions. They therefore enable the website to “recognise” the user on his return, to remember the user’s preferences and to tailor services to them. They may also be used to track the user’s browsing activity across different websites and to build up a detailed profile of his browsing behaviour for targeting advertising.

 

  • First-party cookies. These are cookies planted by the website which the user visits. A unique identity is assigned to the user by setting the cookie to either the user’s browser and/or his hard drive. First-party cookies are commonly used for session management, personalisation and recognition purposes.

 

  • Third-party cookies. These are cookies planted by parties other than the owner of the website a user visits. They are often planted by advertising network providers to facilitate targeted advertising.

The following websites contained further information on cookies: http://www.allaboutcookies.org/ or https://www.aboutcookies.org/ .

In addition to requirements under data protection law (see our Privacy Notice), specific legislation which applies to the use of cookies prevents their use unless the user concerned has

 

  • been provided with clear and comprehensive information about the purposes for which the cookie is stored and accessed; and
  • given his or her consent to the use of the relevant cookies.

 

However, a user’s consent is not required in certain limited circumstances, including where the placing of a cookie is strictly necessary for the provision of an online service requested by the subscriber or user.

As stated in our Cookie Declaration, by continuing to use our website (i.e. by navigating away from our home page) you will be deemed to have consented to our use of the cookies listed in the table above (including third party cookies).

 

If you do not wish to agree to any of the cookies listed in the table (other than strictly necessary cookies), you should untick the relevant boxes set out in our cookie prompt. You can reset your preferences at any time.

 

Please note that by not accepting certain of the cookies we use, you may lose some of the functionality of our website.

 

You can also disable cookies using your browser settings. For information about how to do this, see the Information Commissioner’s webpage on cookies: https://ico.org.uk/your-data-matters/online/cookies/.
