Who we are
At Cricket Yorkshire, we’re committed to maintaining your trust and confidence. We don’t sell, rent or trade email lists with other companies or businesses for marketing purposes.
If you enter a competition, we may share your email address with a partner organisation but that will always be clearly stated and you will have the option not to have your details passed on.
Types of data we collect
Google Analytics (more info)
When someone visits cricketyorkshire.com we use a third party service, Google Analytics, to collect information about how the website is being used. This collects internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns.
We do this to find out things like which pages are popular and how many visitors there are to the website. This information is processed in a way which does not identify anyone.
If we do want to collect personal information through our website, such as your email address, we’ll be up front about this. We’ll make it clear when we collect personal information and will explain what we intend to do with it.
As part of the registration process for our regular e-newsletter, we collect your personal information (email address). We use the information to update you on the things you’ve asked us to tell you about; to contact you if we need to obtain or provide additional information; to check our records are correct and to check every now and then that you’re happy and satisfied.
We don’t rent or trade email lists with other organisations and businesses.
We use two third-party providers, Mailchimp and Hustle, to collect email subscribers on the website and then Mailchimp to deliver our newsletter.
We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry-standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletter.
For more information, please see Mailchimp’s policy on cookies: https://mailchimp.com/legal/cookies/

Cricket Yorkshire is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.co.uk.
This works by Cricket Yorkshire earning a small commission every time a website visitor clicks an Amazon link and purchases a product. We may use other affiliate programs over time but they will always be stated on this page and also marked clearly on every page where there are affiliate links.
Another affiliate partnership is with Kitlocker and you can support Cricket Yorkshire journalism with purchases using the adverts and links on this website.
By having affiliate links included, it in no way affects the independence of the writing which is at the heart of everything published on Cricket Yorkshire.
Crucially, it costs nothing extra to buy via links on Cricket Yorkshire and does not in any way affect the independence of the cricket writing on this website.
