Cookies are small data files that a web site you visit may save on your hard drive. Cookies are used to store and receive identifiers and other information on computers, mobile phones and other devices. While the cookies we use may change from time to time as we update and improve our services, they generally fall into the same categories of use as the previous ones. A cookie cannot in any case retrieve any other data from your hard drive or pass on computer viruses.
One type of cookie, known as a “persistent” cookie, is set once you’ve logged in to your GOAL account. The next time you visit the GOAL website, the persistent cookie will allow us to recognise you as an existing User so you will not need to log in before using the Services, to display the Live Map as you last configured it etc.
We might also use third-party cookies, in order to enhance your experience or improve our understanding of the use of our products.
We use Google Analytics to help us understand how users use our services. Google Analytics cookies do not provide GOAL with any personally identifiable information. They can tell us things like how you arrived at the GOAL site, if you have visited the site before, how long you stay on the site, and which pages on the site you visited. They can also provide us with general information about where in the world a user may be located. This information helps us understand how people use our site and our products, and it gives us information about the kind of experience people have on our site and with our products, all of which helps us learn how to make the GOAL experience even better.

You can at any time remove or block cookies using the settings in your browser, but in some cases doing so may prevent GOAL from fully functioning. Unless you remove or block cookies, as mentioned above, we will retain the information we receive for as long as your account is active or you make use of our services.
In addition to cookies, we are utilising browser local storage technology to store your preferences and make your user experience more consistent. Local storage is a persistent type of storage, that provides similar functionality to cookies, but its contents are not transmitted across the Internet, like cookies are.
Social Media Features
Our Service uses social media features (“Social Features”) provided by companies and services such as Facebook and Twitter to enable you to share information via these channels. The Social Features are identified on our website by these companies’ respective logos. These cookies are owned and controlled by third parties, and therefore the third parties – and not GOAL – are responsible for their use. As such, we can’t guarantee that we have listed every cookie you might get from a third party since a third party could change these cookies at any time as their needs change.
When you visit a page on the GOAL website that contains Social Features, your browser establishes a direct connection to the applicable social network’s servers. The Social Features provide the social networks with the information that you have accessed on the GOAL website, and, if you are logged into the social network, your visit may be logged to your account on that service. For example, if you click the Facebook “Like” button, that information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by it. Even if you are not logged into the social network, or click on a Social Feature on the GOAL site, there is still a possibility that a Social Feature can transmit your IP address to the social network.

The personal data you provide us may be archived and stored periodically and will only be retained for as long as it is required for the purposes it was collected, unless the law requires us to retain them for a longer period, or delete it sooner, or unless you exercise the right to erasure (where it applies), when we do not need to retain it in connection with any reasons permitted or required by law.
GOAL ensures that you can under specific circumstances exercise all relevant rights in relation to your personal data, such as the right of access and correction, the right to object to any or all types of data processing, to prevent direct marketing and request transmission of your personal data in a common digital format.
