Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Analytics and Remarketing
In order to track the performance of our website, we have two analytics platforms in place: Google Analytics and Statcounter.
These platforms store a web cookie that allow us to monitor such metrics as time on site, pages per session, popular pages and more.
We also use a Facebook re-marketing pixel which allows us to reach visitors to our site by advertising on Facebook.
We use personalised online advertising on our sites. This allows us to deliver more relevant advertising to people who visit SnookerMe.com. It works by showing you adverts that are based on your browsing patterns and the way you have interacted with our sites and apps. It then shows you adverts which we believe may interest you.
When you browse our site, some of the cookies and similar technology we place on your device are advertising cookies, so we can understand what sort of pages you are interested in. We can then display advertising on your browser based on these interests. For instance if you have been reading a lot of articles about the best types of snooker tips, we may show you more advertisements for snooker tips.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
If you sign up to our mailing list, your email is stored indefinitely so that we can send you the newsletter. You can request your email be removed by unsubscribing at any time.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
