Cookies may be used to remember visitor preferences when interacting with the website. Where registration is required, the visitor's email and a username will be stored on the server.

Cookies:

Some Team San Jose applications use "cookies." A cookie is a small data file that certain web-sites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user id that the site uses to track the pages you have visited; however,the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie is only a text file and cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Cookies can track user traffic patterns, recognize your computer's browser when you return, and provide personalized content without requiring sign-in.

You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. However, they may be required to use some of the web applications on SanJose.org.

Google Analytics Cookie Tracking

Some Team San Jose applications may use Google Analytics cookies to log user sessions and help us understand traffic and behavior. This helps us analyze data about web-page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to visitor needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes. Some Team San Jose applications include the Google Analytics Display Advertising feature used to provide Demographics and Interest Reporting. This feature uses a third party DoubleClick Cookie.

To provide website visitors the ability to prevent their data from being used by Google Analytics, Google has developed the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on for the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, dc.js). This add-on instructs the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js, analytics.js, and dc.js) running on websites to prohibit sending information to Google Analytics. However, the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on does not prevent data from being sent to Team San Jose.
