What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
We also use the Forminator plugin by WPMU DEV to collect basic contact and enquiry information from users who submit forms on the Site. This information is used to respond to your enquiry or contact request. The data collected in these forms includes your name, email address, and the section of the club you are interested in joining (Under 18, Men's or Women's teams). We do not share this information with any third parties.
How is this data stored?
Google Analytics data is stored on Google's servers, rather than on our website's servers. When a user visits our website, a cookie is placed on their device by Google Analytics, which then collects information about the user's activity on our website, such as the pages they visit, how long they stay on each page, and what links they click on. This data is then sent to Google's servers, where it is stored and analysed.
The data collected through the Forminator plugin is stored securely in the website's database. Access to this database is restricted to authorized personnel only, and all data is stored in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We will only retain personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. Once the data is no longer required, it will be securely deleted from the website's database. Please note that while we take reasonable steps to protect your personal information, no website can be completely secure, and we cannot guarantee the security of any information that you transmit to us. We do however take every pre-caution to ensure this data is as secure as possible. Google Analytics provides us with reports and insights on how users are interacting with our website, which helps us to improve the user experience and ensure that our content is relevant and engaging. Google Analytics data is stored securely and is accessible only to authorized personnel with appropriate login credentials. It's worth noting that Google Analytics data is aggregated and anonymized, meaning that individual users cannot be identified. Additionally, we have configured our Google Analytics account to anonymize IP addresses, which further protects the privacy of our users.
