What is a Cookie?
Cookies are text files placed on your device to allow our servers to monitor how you use the Digital Services.
Cookies are used by Premiership Rugby to remember you, to provide the Digital Services, to show you relevant content, including personalised advertisements and to measure the usability of the systems and how you use our Digital Services, which will help to continually improve user experience of our Digital Services.
What types of Cookies do we use?
We use the following types of Cookies on our Digital Services:
Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Digital Services and use their features, such as accessing secure areas of the Digital Services, consuming content or using some of the tools on the site. Without these cookies, we might not be able to provide you with services you have asked for.
These cookies collect information about how visitors use the Digital Services so we can provide the best experience possible, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous, meaning we can’t view usage behaviour by individuals. Performance Cookies are used to improve how the Digital Services work.
Premiership Rugby does not collect (nor allow any third party to collect) personally identifiable information of visitors to our Digital Services. We will not associate any data gathered with any personally identifying information. We will not link or seek to link an IP address with the identity of a computer user. In short, analytics cookies don’t identify who you are, but do track your movements on our Digital Services.
These cookies allow the Digital Services enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalisation for you on the site, including to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. If you do not allow Functional Cookies then some or all of these services may not function properly.
These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites, including social media platforms and advertising networks. They do not store directly personal information but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will still see the same number of advertisements, though they may be less relevant to you.
Social Media Cookies
These cookies are set by a range of social media services that we have added to the site to enable you to share our content with your friends and networks. They are capable of tracking your browser across other sites and building up a profile of your interests. This may impact the content and messages you see on other websites you visit. If you do not allow these cookies you may not be able to use or see these sharing tools.
How to manage cookies
You can manage what cookies are set on your device at any time by visiting our Cookies Preference Centre.
You can also stop cookies being downloaded on to your computer by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of the Digital Services.
