Each cookie is unique to your web browser and contains some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. They are widely used to make websites work in a better and more efficient way as they remember things you like and your preferences, and allow us to identify your computer and find out details about your last visit.

The information collected by cookies does not personally identify you; it includes general information about your computer settings, your connection to the Internet e.g. operating system and platform, IP address, your browsing patterns and timings of browsing on the Websites and your location.

However, when you write to us or sign up to enter a competition or apply for tickets to an Euroleague event, you might tell us who you are, how we can contact you and what you think about the Euroleague Basketball and its services.

3. Social media and partners cookies

Social media and partners cookies allow you to share our site’s content with other people or tell people what you think about content on the site.

The social network providing the button in question may be able to use that button application to identify you, even if you do not click on the relevant button while visiting our site. Indeed, that type of button application may allow the relevant social network to see your browsing activity on our site if your account with that social network is active on your device (i.e. an open session) while you are browsing our site. We suggest that you consult the privacy policies of those social networks to see what browsing information acquired via such button applications is ultimately used for (as regards advertising, for example). Those privacy policies should allow you to indicate your wishes to the relevant social network in respect of cookies, notably by adjusting the settings on your user account.

DO NOT TRACK (DNT) BROWSER SETTING

DNT is a feature offered by some browsers which, when enabled, sends a signal to websites to request that your browsing is not tracked, such as by third party ad networks, social networks and analytic companies. This Websites do not currently respond to DNI requests.

A uniform standard has not yet been adopted to determine how DNT requests should be interpreted and what actions should be taken by websites and third parties. Euroleague Basketball will continue to review DNT and other new technologies and may adopt a DNT standard once available.
