What are cookies?

Like most websites, the DawoodSport website uses cookies to collect information. Cookies are small data files which are placed on your computer or device (such as smartphone or tablet) as you browse our website. They are used to 'remember' when your computer or device accesses our website. They allow us to remember whether you are logged onto the site and what items you had in your shopping basket. Cookies are essential for the effective operation of our website and to help you shop with us online. They are also used to tailor the products and services offered and advertised to you, both on our website and elsewhere.


Some cookies collect information about browsing and purchasing behaviour when you access our website via the same computer or device. This includes information about pages viewed, products purchased and your journey around a website. All data passed by cookies is anonymous and will never contain individual detail such as your name, address, telephone number or payment information but may contain our customer reference number that is unique to you. For more detailed information about how cookies work, please visit www.allaboutcookies.org.


The cookies stored on your computer or device when you access our website are designed by:

  • DawoodSport or on our behalf, and are necessary to enable you to make purchases on our website;
  • Third parties who participate with us in marketing programmes; and
  • Third parties who publish web banner advertisements for us.


Cookies are used by our marketing partners to present you with appropriate offers and advertising as you browse other sites on the internet.. Cookies also allow us to work alongside our web analytics partner, Google Analytics, to see how you like to use our website, which pages or special functions you prefer and help us to make them better. We may match the data we capture through cookies with personal data that we already hold about you to better understand you. This helps us to continually improve the relevance of our promotional communications, your shopping experience and our products and services.

The main purposes for which cookies are used are:

1. For functional purposes essential to effective operation of our website, particularly in relation to online transactions, site navigation and preferences.

2.For marketing and advertising, particularly web banner advertisement and targeted updates through digital channels and social media.

3. To collect information about your browsing and shopping behaviour, helping us to improve your shopping experience and to monitor performance.


DawoodSport works with partners who serve advertisements or present online offers on our behalf. Most of these marketing partners use both session and persistent cookies. These cookies are used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. All data collected by third party cookies is anonymous and will never contain your name, address, telephone number, email address or payment details.


Two types of cookies are used during your visit to our site:

1. Session cookies

Session cookies are deleted after each visit to our site. For example, they will remember you whilst you browse our website, but will be removed from your computer as soon as you close down your internet browser. Session cookies allow you to add an item to your basket and then move on to the checkout. Disallowing these cookies via your web browser will mean you are unable to place an order on our website.

2. Persistent cookies

Persistent cookies remember you for a set period of time, allowing wishlist and/ or previously viewed products to be displayed the next time you visit our site whether or not you were logged into your account the first time.


Most web browsers will provide you with the option to turn off or disallow cookies. How you do this depends on the web browser you are using. Instructions for disallowing cookies can usually be found in the browser's 'Help' menu. As on most transactional websites, disabling third party cookies will not prevent you from making purchases on our website, but refusing the cookies will. You may also find that certain functions of the website do not work. Cookies can be deleted using your web browser. However, unless they are refused, they will be re-applied the next time you visit our website.

If you want to disable cookies, you need to change your browser setting to reject cookies. How you do this will depend on the browser you use.
