For SportU, protecting your privacy is a very important issue. For us, it is paramount that we deliver reliable, industry-leading products and services so that you can focus on creating and building fun, relevant and meaningful contacts and relationships. In order to ensure the clarity of the information for everyone, we have tried to use the most common language possible when explaining the information about the use of data and privacy.

This cookie policy explains what cookies are, what types of cookies are placed on your device when you visit our website and how we use them.

You can request our privacy policy for more information about how we process your personal information.

Cookies are small text files that are sent to or opened through your device's web browser or memory. A cookie usually contains the name of the domain (internet location) of where the cookie has originated, the "lifetime" of the cookie (i.e. when it expires) and a randomly generated unique number or similar identification attribute. A cookie may also contain information about your device, such as user settings, browsing history, and activities performed while using our services.

The most well-known cookies are first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are placed by us directly on your device to, for example, adapt our website to the language preferences of your browser and to better understand the way you use our website. Third-party cookies are placed on your device by our partners to measure user numbers on our website but also for you, to enable you to share content with others through (other) social media channels.

Next, a distinction has to be made between session cookies and permanent cookies. Session cookies remain on the device until you close your browser and are mainly used to help you use our website more efficiently. Permanent cookies have a longer life span and are not automatically deleted when you close your browser and ensure that you can quickly log back into the website and for analysis purposes.

Other tracking technologies such as web beacons, tracking URLs or software development kits (SDKs) are used for similar purposes. Web beacons are small graphic files that contain a unique identifier that allows us to recognize when someone has visited our service. Tracking URLs are customized links that help us understand where the traffic to our web pages comes from. SDKs are small pieces of code in apps that function as cookies and web beacons. We also refer to these technologies as cookies in this cookie policy.

We do this by remembering your preferences, recognizing you when you visit our website, and tailoring and personalizing ads to your interests. In order to achieve these goals, we may also link information from cookies to other personal information we have about you.

When you visit our website, some or all of the different types of cookies can be set on your device.
