Log Files

Like most standard Web site servers, we use log files.

This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by GoalBall.

Online Third-Party Advertising

We may serve personalised advertising content on web pages that you visit on the site, in which case we and/or our ad network partners may use personal data relating to you to generate such personalised advertising content.

Please note that our operations are funded by online advertising. We work directly with many firms (partners) to get the best value from our ad space. Some, known as ‘exchanges’, resell our ad space in a global market of products and services of brands and retailers, through their own direct relationships with those brands/retailers or other firms that represent them. Other partners provide us with other services, such as ad serving.

Our exchange partners may perform some of the following activities:

• Collecting and processing information about your use of our sites with the aim of subsequently personalising advertising for you on our sites, or in other contexts, such as on other sites or apps. Typically, the pages of our site that you access are used to make inferences about your interests, which when combined together (to create a profile) inform future selection of advertising.

• Selecting and delivering advertisements to you. This includes using contextual information about the pages of our site that you access, which may be combined with previously collected information about you to select ads.

• Measurement of delivery and performance of ads and user activity, which includes processing data about what ads were shown, how often they were shown, when and where they were shown, and whether you took any action related to the ad, such as clicking an ad or making a purchase.

Our partners, in performing any of the above activities, do so where either they have independently obtained consent (which we may have facilitated) or have established a legal basis other than consent for those activities.

Our main partners include Google, and please see their own privacy policies for further details of their own privacy and cookies practices.

Legal bases for processing (including basis of legitimate interest):

(a) Consent (in relation to the serving of personalised ads and the setting of related cookies, where you have given such consent)

(b) Necessary for our and our partners’ legitimate interests (in relation to the serving of such advertising content, which supports us in providing you with our free services via the sites)

Notification of Changes

Whenever GoalBall changes its privacy policy, we will post those changes to this privacy statement, and other places we deem appropriate.
