  • To keep you signed in, even on different devices;
  • To help us to understand how people are using our services, so we can make them better;

2. A few things on our website wouldn’t work without some cookies. Tech people call these “strictly necessary cookies”. They’re always on when you visit us. But we want to use others like functional, performance and advertising cookies to make your experience more enjoyable. We’ll only use them if you’ve agreed. You can always change your mind.

3. Bear in mind there are some other cookies on the internet from other companies. These “third-party cookies” might track how you use different websites, including ours. For example, you might get a social media company’s cookie when you see the option to share something. You can turn them off, but not through our site.

4. Some cookies are erased when you close the browser on your website. Others stay longer, sometimes forever, and are saved onto your device so that they’re there when you come back.

5. When you first visit the Site, we’ll tell you about our cookies and ask you to agree if we can use them. You can always change your mind by going to your settings. Stopping all cookies might mean you can’t access some SportsKidz services, or that some of them might not work properly for you.
