Whenever you use our website, information may be collected through the use of cookies and similar technologies. By using the Northumbria Junior Golf League website, you agree to our use of cookies as described in this policy.

Cookies are small text files which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or application. Your web browser, (such as Internet Explorer, Firefox or Google Chrome), then sends these cookies back to the website or application on each subsequent visit so that they can recognise you and remember things like personalised details or user preferences. Cookies are very useful and do lots of different jobs which help to make your experience on websites as smooth as possible. For example, they let you move between web pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your experience.

Which cookies do we use and why?

When you use our website, the following categories of cookies may be set on your device:

1. Analytics cookies

In order to keep the website relevant, easy to use and up-to-date, we use Google Analytics services to help us understand how people use it. For example, we can see which parts of the website are most popular, identify where visitors are accessing the site from, identify when errors occur, and test different versions of a page or feature to see which one works best. The web analytics services may also use cookies and similar technologies to make the information collected more useful. When you are viewing a website, a cookie is transferred to your browser by the web server and is stored on your computer. It can only be read by the server that gave it to you. Cookies allow web analytics services to recognise your browser or device and, for example, identify whether you have visited our website before, what you have previously viewed or clicked on, and how you found us. The information is anonymous and only used for statistical purposes. It allows us to track information, such as how many individual users we have and how often they visit our websites. It also helps us to analyse patterns of user activity and to develop a better user experience. Web analytics data and cookies cannot be used to identify you as they never contain personal information such as your name or email address.

2. Third party cookies

Please note that on some pages of our websites, you may notice that cookies have been set that are not related to the Northumbria Junior Golf League. When you visit a page with content embedded from, for example, Facebook, Instagram or Flickr, these service providers may set their own cookies on your web browser. These anonymous cookies may be set by that third party to track the success of their application or to customise their application to you. Northumbria Junior Golf League does not control the use of these cookies and cannot access them due to the way that cookies work, as cookies can only be accessed by the party who originally set them. You can check the third party websites for more information about these cookies and disable them if you wish. → How to disable cookies.

We take data security extremely seriously. We have therefore implemented appropriate procedures to ensure your data is not lost, stolen, damaged or disclosed to any unauthorised person or organisation.

We use third-party services such as website providers, who may also require access to some of your data. In every circumstance, we will ensure all third parties undertake to protect your data with the utmost responsibility and act in accordance with the GDPR.

We will do our best to keep the data we hold accurate. However, if you spot any errors in the data we hold on you, please let us know and we will rectify them.
