Cookies on the BSUK Websites

Like many websites we use cookies on BaseballSoftballUK web pages.  Cookies are small pieces of data we store on the device that you use to access our website (e.g. computer, mobile phone, tablet), so that we can recognise repeat users, save your preferences for future visits, enable functionality and monitor website performance.  Each cookie expires after a certain period of time depending on what we use it for.

By using the BSUK websites, you expressly consent to the use of cookies as described on this page as well as in our Privacy Policy.

Can cookies be disabled?

Some cookies are required in order to make the core functions of our websites work properly. You are able to remove or disable some other cookies either via the cookies preferences bar on the website (the cookies message that pops up when you first visit the site) or your internet browser.  Please refer to your browser's configuration information since the steps for doing so may vary between browsers.

Please note is that if you disable cookies, this might adversely impact your ability to use our web services effectively.  Enabling cookies ensures a smoother experience when you use our site.

What do we use cookies for?

We use cookies for several reasons.

Certain cookies are necessary in order for the site to operate correctly.  For example, when you log in to our website (e.g. Coach Portal), authentication cookies are set which let us know who you are during a browsing session.

Functionality cookies are used to enable certain additional functionality on our websites, such as: storing your preferences in your online account, keeping you logged in for a limited time if you leave the website (without logging out) and return so that you don’t have to re-enter your information, preventing users from taking the same survey multiple times or posting a comment on an article or forum. This functionality improves user experience.

Some cookies are used to collect information about how visitors use our websites.  We use the information to analyse how users use our websites, detect problems with our websites, and help us improve and refine our services and features.  These cookies generally collect information in an anonymous form and store it securely.  This allows us to determine information such as the number of visitors to a webpage, how visitors came to the website, the pages they visited and links they clicked on.  For example, we use Google Analytics which uses cookies to collect this information (example cookie names: __utma, __utmb, __utmc, __utmz).

We embed videos from our official YouTube channel using YouTube's privacy-enhanced mode.  By using cookies, Google/YouTube may collect information about visitors to our pages that contain embedded videos (e.g. to see what numbers of people are viewing our videos).  These cookies do not identify you personally unless you are logged into your Google/YouTube account.  Privacy-enhanced mode means that YouTube won’t store information about visitors on our web pages unless they play the video. (Example cookie names: SID, LOGIN_INFO, use_hotbox, PREF, SSID, HSID, watched_video_id_list, __utma, __utmz, demographics, VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE).

We embed Google Calendar and Google Maps on some web pages (e.g. Farnham Park booking calendar and the Diamond Finder).  Google sets a number of cookies on these pages to measure the number and behaviour of Google users and to store your preferences such as zoom level. (Example cookie names: N_T, PP_TOS_ACK, SNID, GAPS, NID, PREF, S, SID, SAPISID, APISID, SSID, HSID).
