Cookie Policy

Our policy on cookies.

This page gives you details about how we use cookies on the SailingNetworks website and in the SailingNetworks application. If you have any questions about this policy, just get in touch – you can e-mail us at or call us at +44 (0)1983 241614 and ask for support.

By visiting, logging into, registering or using SailingNetworks (or "app") or the SailingNetworks website, you agree that it's okay for us to collect, use and transfer your personal data under the terms of this policy. If you're not happy with this or don't want to be bound by this policy, you can disable the cookies – see the "managing cookies" section below for details.

About cookies

If you're like us, you've probably not given too much thought to any cookie that doesn't involve chocolate, so here are the essential facts: digital cookies are small files made up of bits of data, stored in your phone or computer's temporary memory when you navigate around the web. Unless you have indicated your objection, our system will issue cookies to your computer when you access, register on and log on to the SailingNetworks website or use SailingNetworks. Cookies make it easier for you to log on to and use these sites during visits.

Mainly, we use cookies to tell our website and app, "hey, you remember that computer who visited last week? Well, it's back!" That cookie information helps us understand traffic patterns on our website, helps us store any preferences or passwords that you've asked us to store, and helps us understand how well our advertising is going.

Auto-logging you into SailingNetworks

By checking "Remember Me on this Computer," you can choose to store a permanent cookie that allows you to access SailingNetworks without logging in each time. Be careful when you use this option, and only check this when you're confident that your computer is secure.


Recognising you as a return visitor

Using analytics software and a cookie, we can tell that you've visited SailingNetworks before, which helps us understand what parts of the site you're coming back to see.


Monitoring website traffic and video traffic.

We want to know which parts of our site are popular and which parts are rarely visited, so we use a cookie to analyse traffic as it moves around the SailingNetworks website and SailingNetworks.

First-Party (including Google) and Third-Party

Reminding you of SailingNetworks elsewhere

Many third parties such as weblogs, newspapers, search engines and other sites online will use a cookie to check if you've visited SailingNetworks lately, as part of a service that we use. If you have visited us, the third party may show you an advertising message on their website with SailingNetworks's latest news.

Third-Party (including Google)

Understanding how people found us

We want to know how SailingNetworks caught your eye, so we use a cookie to understand how you found SailingNetworks when you visit.


Customizing SailingNetworks to you

While you use SailingNetworks to manage your club or class, we set a number of cookies that customize the SailingNetworks experience for you – for example, when you choose a sort order preference, we'll set a cookie to reflect that.


Note: A first-party cookie is created by SailingNetworks, and a third-party cookie is created by one of SailingNetworks's suppliers or partners.
