Cookie Notice

You should be aware that when you access or use our content, products and services, we may collect information from your devices through the use of cookies and similar technologies. Cookies perform various different functions, and often to improve your user experience. The purpose of this Policy is to give you a clearer understanding of:

What are cookies and similar technologies?

Cookies are text files containing a small amount of information that are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Your web browser then sends these cookies back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognizes those cookies. Web beacons are small graphic images (also known as "pixel tags" or "clear GIFs") typically used to demonstrate a webpage was accessed or that certain content was viewed or clicked to analyse our webpages usage. Flash cookies are locally stored browser plug-in used to add interactive and multimedia content to websites. Mobile applications may use devices, mechanisms or technologies that perform the function of a cookie on mobile platforms such as Apple iOS or Android.

We may use the terms "cookies" or "similar technologies" interchangeably in our policies to refer to all technologies that we may use to store data in your browser or device or that facilitate collection of personal information and help us identify you in the manner described in the section "How we use cookies?".

Why do we use cookies?

Cookies are very helpful and can be used for many different purposes. Cookies are used by our websites to improve your online experience and to ensure that relevant content and functions are delivered and used more effectively.

We use session cookies, persistent cookies and local storage to perform various functions across our sites.

Session cookies are downloaded to your device temporarily for the period that you browse a particular website; these cookies might allow you to navigate between pages more efficiently or enable websites to remember the preferences you select. Persistent cookies can be used to help websites remember you as a returning visitor or ensure the online adverts you receive are more relevant to your interests. Locally stored text files are not transmitted by your web browser. They are accessed by you alone when using applications on your device.

Software Development Kits (SDK) are pre-built parts of a third party application that enable mobile operating systems like Apple iOS to work. They can be stored on your device. Although SDKs are commonly used for mobile applications, it is possible to use them on websites or other digital platforms.

Cookie Type

Third Party Marketing / Targeting Cookies

Purpose

These cookies are used to deliver Flutter Entertainment plc group advertisements relevant to you, based upon your interests.

They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign.

More information

These cookies record your visit to our website, the pages you have visited and the products you have selected. We will use this information to make our website and the advertising displayed more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose and to measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign.

Targeting cookies are also used to:

  • Collect information about browser habits to target website content and to target advertising;
  • Link to social media networks and blogs who may use this information about your visit to target advertising to you;
  • To provide advertisers with information on your visit so that they can present you with adverts that you may be interested in;
  • Deliver content and marketing communications tailored to your interests based on information from your visit;
  • To perform geotargeting, which allows our adverts to be displayed on third party webpages, based upon your location;
  • To perform site retargeting. A retargeting pixel (a tiny unit of code) on our webpage leaves a cookie in the user's browser, which causes our adverts to be displayed or to not be displayed to you when you visit certain websites within the retargeting network (e.g. Google Display Network); and
  • To perform search retargeting, which allows our adverts to be displayed on third party webpages, based upon your previous web search activities.

These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies, or targeting cookies. Please note that no personal data is collected, an advertiser is unable to associate the cookie with a particular individual's name, address or other personal information.

These cookies are placed by third party advertising networks with our permission.
