What Are Cookies

A cookie is a small piece of data that is stored by the user’s browser (Chrome, Edge, Firefox, Safari, etc.) when they visit a website. It contains information regarding their browsing activity and is typically used to personalize the user’s experience or for verification purposes.

There are two broad types of cookies, first-party cookies and third-party cookies.

First-party cookies are created directly by the website that a user is visiting.

Third-party cookies are not created by the website that a user is visiting. They are created by another website when part of that website’s content is embedded on the website the user is visiting.

What Is Embedded Content

Embedded content is a piece of content from another website that is shown on our website. Embedded content from another website behaves in the exact same way as if the user has directly visited that other website.

This means that third-party cookies may be created that collect data about the user. This includes tracking the users interaction with the embedded content, and correlating that interaction if the user has an account with that service, if they are logged in to that service.

Cookies That We Use

Yardsoccer.com does not use any first-party cookies. This website is made for informational and entertainment purposes. This means that users will not be asked to provide their name and email address, create an account, leave comments, or any other activity that could be personally identifiable.

However, we do have articles on our website that will create third-party cookies from embedded content. Specifically, any article that contains a video embedded from YouTube will create third-party cookies if the user interacts (clicks play) on that video.

YouTube is owned by Google. You can learn more about Google’s privacy policy here:

Web Hosting Log Files

A web hosting company is a business that manages the servers that store and serve websites. A web hosting company’s servers create log files that monitor the amount of traffic to a website, typically a standard practice and a part of the web hosting company’s analytics.

The information inside these log files may include IP addresses, date & time stamps, browser type, pages visited, referring & exit pages, and error reports. This information may be used to administer the site, measure traffic volume, analyze trends, and report any generated errors.

IP addresses and other information are not linked to any information that is personally identifiable.

Yardsoccer.com uses WordPress web hosting that is managed by Flywheel, a company based in Omaha, Nebraska.

Note: Flywheel was acquired in 2019 by WP Engine, a company based in Austin, Texas.
