TOCAFootball.com Website Cookie Notice

Effective Date: January 26, 2021

When you visit the TOCA Football website, www.tocafootball.com (the “Website”), TOCA and its service providers acting on its behalf automatically collect certain data using tracking technologies, for example, cookies, pixels, and web beacons.  This notice describes our data collection and tracking practices.  For more information about how TOCA processes information collected via our Websites and on our Services, as well as the choices and rights that consumers have regarding how we collect and process information about them, please see our Privacy Policy.

We also partner with third-party ad networks to either display advertising on our Website or to manage our advertising on other websites. Our ad network partners use cookies, pixels, and other ad-targeting technologies to collect information about your activities on our Website in order to provide you with targeted advertising based upon your interests. Instructions for opting out of interest-based advertising is set forth in this policy, but you can also opt-out of interest-based advertising using the Network Advertising Initiative’s opt-out tool.

What are cookies and pixels?

A cookie is a small text file stored on a user’s device that may later be retrieved by a web server from the device.  Cookies allow web servers to do certain things like remember the items you placed in a shopping cart or that you are logged in.  Some cookies let us and our service providers keep track of our website users’ browsing activities and connect certain activities into a session.

A pixel is a very small image that may be found within web pages and emails which requires a call to our servers in order for the pixel to be rendered in those web pages and emails—this call provides information about your device and visit. We use pixels to learn more about your interactions with email content or web content, such as whether you interacted with ads or posts. Pixels can also enable us and third parties to place cookies on your browser.

Are there different types of cookies?

Cookies typically are classified as either session cookies or persistent cookies. Session cookies disappear from your device or browser then you turn off your device.  Persistent cookies remain on your browser even if you turn off your device. We use both persistent cookies and session cookies.

Can you stop us from setting cookies?

Yes, you can prevent a website, including ours, from setting cookies. However, if you do so, some parts of the website may not function properly or at all. Please see the Cookie Options section, below.

Does the TOCA Website respond to Do Not Track Signals?

Our Website or services do not collect personal information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. Therefore, “do not track” signals transmitted from web browsers do not apply to our Sites or Services, and we do not alter any of our data collection and use practices upon receipt of such a signal.
