Cookies and other tracking technologies
The Padel School website or app uses three main types of cookies:
- Necessary cookies – which make our website or app work correctly;
- Performance cookies – which collect data relating to how you use our website or app;
- Functionality cookies – which give you a more personalised experience when you use our website or app.
The Padel School is the data controller for any personal data provided to or collected by The Padel School – via cookies and other tracking technologies.
The Padel School receives and stores certain types of information, some of which is “personal data” under GDPR, whenever you interact with us online. Examples of such personal data include IP addresses and location data.
In conjunction with cookies, The Padel School also uses tracking pixels. Tracking pixels are small pieces of HTML code that can be installed on a website or included in an email. These are activated when someone visits the website or opens / reads the email. The following information can be captured via tracking pixels;
- Operating system used (gives information on the use of mobile devices)
- Type of website or email used, for example on mobile or desktop
- Type of client used, for example a browser or email program
- User’s screen resolution
- Time the email was read or website was visited
- Activities on the website during a session, or how much of the email was read
- IP address (gives information on the Internet Service Provider and location)
The difference between a cookie and a pixel is where the information is served and kept. Pixels are made to send information to servers, whereas cookies are saved in a browser on a user’s device.
Information may be sent to your computer or device in the form of an Internet browser “cookie” to allow The Padel School to monitor your use of our website or app, in order for us to tailor the way it works for you, as set out above and below.
