By accessing and using the YD Sports Desk website (https://www.ydsportsdesk.com) you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Please note that this website uses cookies to improve your user experience. See ‘Cookies’ for more information, including how to change your settings.

What personal data is collected and why?

In order to give you the services you require, I may collect personal information about you from our website. I will normally only use your personal data to respond to your enquiries. I also use general data regarding your information (which does not identify you as an individual) for the purpose of administering and developing the website.

To be more specific:

Contact form

When you fill out the contact form on the website, the required fields name and email address are collected so I can respond to your enquiry.

Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics for analytical feedback to help understand website traffic and webpage usage. I have accepted the Google Ads Data Processing Terms and turned off data sharing possibilities. In addition, I have anonymized the IP address, meaning the full IP address is never written to disk. The data retention period is set to 26 months.

You can learn more about how Google uses information, including Google Analytics, and how you can disable Google Analytics cookies by following these instructions.
Google – covering the Google Analytics data collected – complies with the EU-US and Swiss-US Privacy Shield Frameworks.

Links to other websites

Any links to other websites on this website are outside of my control and are therefore not governed by this Privacy Policy. I am not responsible or liable for how other sites collect and use your information.

Please check the individual third party websites privacy policies before you submit personal information to those websites.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this website may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Cookies

This website uses cookies to give you the best browsing experience.

By using our website, you accept the use of all cookies. If you do not accept the use of (some) cookies, you can disable and delete them as instructed under ‘Change your Cookie Settings’.

What is a cookie?

A ‘cookie’ is a small data file which is downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies perform different functions, like remembering your preferences and distinguishing you from other users. Certain cookies contain personal information (e.g. when you opt-in to save your details when leaving a comment), but most cookies instead collect general information and are used to improve your user experience.

Types of cookies

The main types of cookies a website may use are:

  • Session cookies last only for the duration of your visit and are deleted when you close the browser.
  • Persistent cookies remain even after you close the browser. They remain on your device until the expiration date or until you delete the cookie. Persistent cookies are used to collect identifying information about you (e.g. username or customisation preferences).
  • First-party cookies are from the website you are visiting.
  • Third-party cookies are set by someone other than the owner of the website you are visiting. For example social networks through the use of embedded content on a website or when you share a link to a website’s page.

What cookies are used?

This website mainly uses functional and analytical cookies in order to improve the user experience for website visitors.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics sets three cookies: _ga (lasting 2 years), _gid (lasting 24 hours), _gat (lasting 1 minute). These cookies enable me to anonymously track how visitors access and browse the website, thereby enabling me to optimise and improve my service.

More information is available at Google.

euCookie

This session cookie stores whether you have accepted the usage of all cookies.

Embedded content from other websites

Some of the web pages contain embedded content from other websites, mainly social media websites like YouTube and Twitter. These parties may set their own cookies. Also if you share a link to this website, the service you share it on (e.g. Facebook) may set a cookie on your browser.
