This Cookie Policy explains how Kent County Volleyball Association ("Company", "we", "us", and "our") uses cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you visit our websites at, ("Website").  It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.


In this cookie policy you can read about

  • How we use cookies.

  • The types of cookies we use.

  • For how long they work and for what purposes they are used.

  • How to change your cookie settings and opt-out.

  • Who we are and how can you contact us.


When we refer to “you” we mean you as a user or visitor of our website.

This policy is part of our privacy policy.  Our use of cookies may include processing of your personal data and we therefore recommend that you read our Privacy Notice.


In some cases we may use cookies to collect personal information, or that becomes personal information if we combine it with other information.


Why do we use cookies?


We use first and third party cookies for several reasons.  Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites to operate, and we refer to these as "essential" or "strictly necessary" cookies.  Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Online Properties.  Third parties serve cookies through our Websites for advertising, analytics and other purposes.  This is described in more detail below.


The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Websites and the purposes they perform are described below (please note that the specific cookies served may vary depending on the specific Online Properties you visit):

What do you need to know about cookies?

There are different types of cookies and they are used for different purposes.

Below you can read about what a cookie is, the difference between first and third party cookies and session cookies vs. persistent cookies and what types of cookies we use on our website and why.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small piece of data that a website stores on your device when you visit it.  A cookie typically contains information about the website itself, a unique identifier that allows the site to recognise your web browser when you return, additional data that serves the purpose of the cookie, and the lifespan of the cookie itself.

Cookies are used to enable certain features (e.g. logging in), to track site usage (e.g. analytics), to store your user settings (e.g. timezone, notification preferences) and to personalise your content (e.g. advertising, language).


Session cookies vs. persistent cookies

Session cookies only last as long as your online session.  This means that they will disappear from your computer or device when you close your browser.  They are therefore also sometimes referred to as temporary cookies.  Typically session cookies are used to remember what a user put in their basket when they are browsing a website.


Persistent cookies are different.  These cookies are sometimes called permanent cookies.  They will stay on your computer or device after you close your browser.  These types of cookies will expire according to the time specified in the cookie.  You can see the specific duration of each persistent cookie below.


What’s the difference between first and third party cookies?

First party cookies are cookies that are set by the website that you are visiting and it's only this website that can access and read these cookies.


Third party cookies are set by someone other than the owner of the website you’re visiting.  As an example, some pages may have content from other sites like YouTube.  YouTube may set their own cookies on your browser when you play the video from YouTube.  Cookies set by other sites and companies (ie. third parties) can be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service.

Below you can see what cookies on our website are first party cookies and third party cookies.
