Cookie Policy

This cookie policy (“Cookie Policy”) is intended to inform you how we use “cookies” and similar technologies on our website at www.footballindex.co.uk, through our apps or in our emails (“Service”)  and to assist you in making informed decisions when using our Service. Please take a moment to read and understand this Cookie Policy. This Cookie Policy should also be read in conjunction with our Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use.

WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies and similar technologies are very small text documents or pieces of code, which often include an anonymous unique identifier. When you visit a website or use a mobile application, a computer asks your computer or mobile device for permission to store this file on your computer or mobile device and access information from it. Information gathered through cookies and similar technologies may include the date and time of visits and how you are using the particular website or mobile application.

We use first and third party cookies in connection with our Service. First party cookies are cookies placed by us to collect information about you. However, certain cookies available through our Service are placed by third party website operators. This means that the information about you collected by those third party cookies will be shared with the relevant third party. Please refer to the relevant third party website operator’s privacy notice for more information about how they may use such information.

For more details on cookies and similar technologies, please visit All About Cookies. For the purposes of the remaining sections of this Cookie Policy, we will refer to all technologies using the above features as “cookies”.  

HOW LONG DO COOKIES LAST?

All cookies have expiration dates that determine how long they stay in your browser:

Session Cookies – these are temporary cookies that expire (and are automatically erased) whenever you close your browser.

Persistent Cookies – these usually have an expiration date and so stay in your browser until they expire, or until you manually delete them.

COOKIES USED ON OUR SERVICE

We use the following types of cookies across our Service:

Essential Cookies – Essential cookies are those cookies which are essential for the operation of a website. Essential cookies include cookies such as login cookies and shopping cart cookies.

Functionality Cookies – These cookies recognise you when you return to a website, they remember your preferences and they provide enhanced, more personalised features.

Social Media Cookies – These cookies are used to personalise your interaction with social media, such as Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and YouTube. Such cookies recognise users of those social media sites when you view social media content on the website. They also allow you to quickly share content across social media, through the use of simple “sharing” buttons. Some websites may also contain features that enable you to use your social media account to sign in and create/maintain an account with the website you are visiting and to enable the website operator to store your content. This involves the use of cookies.

Targeting Cookies – Targeting cookies (also known as advertising cookies) deliver adverts that are more relevant to you and your interests.
