COOKIE POLICY

In this Cookies Policy references to “we”, “us” and “our”, are references to 1 Degree and references to the “Site” are references to https://11thhourracingteam.org.

This cookie policy sets out information about our use of cookies on our Site.

WHAT ARE COOKIES?

A cookie is a simple text file of letters and numbers that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server, if you agree. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like who you are, your preferences or what’s in your shopping basket. 

Most websites you visit will use cookies in order to improve your user experience by enabling that website to ‘remember’ you. Cookies are not used to identify you personally. To learn more about cookies, visit All About Cookies.

CONSENTING TO USE OF COOKIES

By clicking the “I agree” button on the pop-up when you first use our Site you are agreeing to the use of cookies by our Site.

HOW LONG DO COOKIES LAST?

Cookies last for different lengths of time depending on what they are used for:

Session cookies are temporary cookies and are only stored until you leave the website or when you close your web browser.

Persistent cookies last for a fixed period of time, defined within the cookie, and allow the website to recognise the device again when the user returns to that website on that device.

WHO SETS COOKIES?

First party cookies are set by the website that you are visiting and can only be read by that website.

Third party cookies are set by an organisation other than the operator of the website. This might be for the purposes of website measurement, to allow a third party service on the website to operate or to target or deliver advertising.

HOW DO WE USE COOKIES?

The Site uses a range of first and third party cookies that enable us to offer an enhanced, personalised experience. The information stored in cookies falls into the following categories:

Strictly Necessary Cookies

These are cookies required for the operation of our Site and are essential in order to enable you to use the Site and its features. Without these cookies, we are unable to provide services that you have asked for, such as viewing content or enable you to log into secure areas of our Site. 

Performance Cookies

These cookies collect information about how visitors use the Site, for instance, which pages visitors go to most often and if they get error messages. All information that these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous, and is only used to improve how the Site works.

Functionality Cookies

These are used to recognise you when you return to our Site. This enables us to personalise our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region). The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

Targeting or Advertising Cookies

These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests, to limit the number of times you see an advertisement and to help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaigns. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers.

Please note third parties (including, for example, our other business partners, and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. These cookies are likely to be analytical/performance cookies or targeting cookies.

To manage cookies linked to targeting or advertising activities, visit Your Online Choices.

To opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites visit Google Analytics Opt-Out.
