What are they?

'Cookies' are small text files that are stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive, mobile phone or other device you use to access websites.

What cookies does The Football Ground use on its site?

We use cookies from Google Analytics which provide us with information on how many unique browsers we have had during a given period and how often people visit our site, where and when they tend to come in and which pages they were looking at before they left, and so on.

We use this information to best manage content for users and to improve all users’ experience on our website. We do not use cookies to collect information that identifies any individual. For this reason these cookies are often called ‘anonymous analytics cookies’ and are entirely benign.

You can find out more about cookie use by Google Analytics here. The longest lifespan of these cookies is two years.

We have no means of tracking your surfing behaviour on other websites before or after you visit this The Football Ground site.

What is the legal position on cookies?

The law about use of non-essential cookies changed in May 2011. You can find more information about this from the Information Commissioner's Office.

In the meantime, you can tell your web browser to notify you whenever a website attempts to set a cookie. You can also tell your browser to disable and/or refuse all cookies, although doing so may affect your experience of many websites. Each browser has slightly different ways of handling cookies but you can usually find out how to do it via the ‘Help’ or ‘Settings’ options on your browser.

There’s also a really useful site called  All About Cookies which is a free resource to help website users and website providers understand the issues surrounding the use of cookies.

Changes to this Cookie Policy

We may change this Cookie Policy from time to time, for example: if third party advertising was to be run on this Website, third party advertising networks would potentially be placing cookies via the Website, over which The Football Ground would have no control.

If so, we will post the revised version on the Website. You are encouraged to check the terms of such revised versions. If the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice and/or email notification of the changes. Each version of this Cookie Policy will be identified at the top of the page by its effective date, and we will also keep previous versions of this Cookie Policy in an archive for your review. If you use the Website after the date on which this Cookie Policy has been changed, we will treat such use as your consent to the revised Cookie Policy.
