What is a Cookie?
A cookie is a small text file stored on your computer or mobile device that contains data related to a website you visit. Cookies have varying functionality and are typically used to ensure that a website functions properly and as you might expect it to. Cookies also allow websites to ‘remember’ your browsing habits or preferences over a period.
Cookies may be set by Kilkenny Recreation and Sports Partnership (KRSP) as the website operator directly (“first-party cookies”) or in some cases, by another third-party service provider (“third-party cookies”). In the latter scenario, cookies are deployed for social media, advertising, or analytics purposes. KRSP will only be able to directly recognise and read the information contained on first-party cookies.
We avail of third-party technologies across our site. These technologies help us to understand how you use the site and the ways in which we can improve your user experience. These technologies may track certain information such as the pages you visit across our site as well as how long your visit lasts. This allows us to continue providing engaging content.
We also use social media plugins on this site that allow you to view videos and otherwise interact with certain content. In order for these technologies to work, trusted third parties will set cookies and tracker pixels throughout our site. Once enabled, these technologies may be used to enhance your profile or to contribute to the data they hold for various purposes outlined in their respective privacy policies. We strongly encourage our visitors to review these policies in advance of granting consent to deployment.
For each visitor to our site, we automatically gather certain potentially identifying information and store it. This information includes your Internet Protocol (IP) address, your browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, your operating system, date/time stamp, processor or device serial number, unique device identifier, and clickstream data. We collect this information on an individual basis and in the aggregate, or combined form.
Categories of Tracking Technologies
We avail of both first and third-party technologies across our site. KRSP takes our visitors’ right to privacy seriously in keeping with our obligations under EU data protection/privacy law. Should you consent to the deployment of any category of optional technology, we will record your consent for a period of no longer than 6 months subject to interaction; at which point these technologies will be disabled. You will then be prompted to refresh your consent.
These cookies are necessary for the website to function. They are set for security purposes and in response to actions made by you that amount to a service request such as how you interact with our cookie banner, log in to our platform, or as you fill out forms on our site. While we cannot disable these cookies, you have the option to do so via your browser settings. Should you do so, certain aspects of our site will no longer function.

Analytics Cookies (Optional)
These cookies allow us to determine the number of visits to our site as well as where that traffic originates. This helps us understand which pages are the most popular as well as how it is that you come to view them. All information collected by this category of cookies is held in aggregate form and is therefore anonymous. While this information will not be combined by KRSP for profiling purposes, it may be combined by certain third parties such as Google to build a profile of your interactions across the web. This may result in highly targeted advertising on other sites. If you disable this category of the cookie, our site will still work, though its improvement over time will be hampered.
