Cookie Statement SportsCloud International Ltd

What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files placed on your computer or mobile device by a website when you visit a site or page for the first time. The cookie will help the website or another website recognize your device at your next visit. We use the word “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect data in this manner. We only use cookies in accordance with applicable legislation.

Cookies have a lot of uses. For example, they help us store your login credentials, authentication details, and other essential information, but also help remember non-essential information such as your preferences. They also help analyze how well our website works, or enable us to recommend content which we believe is the most relevant to you.

What types of cookies and other tracking technologies does SportsCloud International Ltd use?
The cookies on SportsCloud International Ltd can be divided into four categories:

  • Essential/Required cookies
    These cookies are essential for the core activity of our website and are activated automatically when you use the website. We also store your permission settings in a cookie to remember this for future visits.
  • Performance cookies
    These cookies help improve the performance of the website and enhance the user experience. This enables us to offer a great experience on our website, to adapt its content, and to rapidly identify and resolve any issues. We use, for example, performance cookies to monitor which pages are the most popular, which method of linking between pages is the most effective, and to determine why some pages are sent error messages. You can turn these cookies on or off insofar as they are used by SportsCloud International Ltd.
  • Online behavioral cookies
    These cookies are used for customer profiling. SportsCloud International Ltd uses an online engagement software program called BlueConic. This software progressively creates an individual customer profile through different channels, from the first visit of an anonymous visitor to a known customer. It tracks all real-time channel changes and necessary recognition transfers and mergers that take place in between. This allows SportsCloud International Ltd to dynamically categorize these persons based on their profiles. BlueConic then serves the most relevant content on the SportsCloud International Ltd websites or initiates online interactions. You can turn these cookies on or off.
