Updated on April 21st 2021

This website is owned by the Supporters’ Clubs World Confederation and incorporates first- and third-party cookies, in accordance with the terms of this Cookie Policy. Additionally, you can also determine which cookies you wish to install from among the different categories.

1. WHAT ARE COOKIES?

A cookie is a text file containing small amounts of data that are downloaded and installed onto your device when you visit our website. Later, the cookies are returned to their website of origin on subsequent visits, or to other websites that recognise the cookies in question. Cookies are useful, as they make it possible to store and retrieve information regarding the number of visits and users’ browsing habits (or those of their devices). Depending on the information they contain and the way the user’s device is configured, cookies can also be used to recognise the user and to improve the Ie of using the website.

2. TYPES OF COOKIE

Depending on the owner or body that manages the system from which the cookies originate, and which processes the data that is subsequently obtained, we can make a distinction between:

a.  First-party cookies: These cookies are sent to the user’s device from a system or domain that is managed by us and through which the service requested by the user is provided.

b.  Third-party cookies: These cookies are sent to the user's device from a system or domain that is not managed by us; rather, it is managed by another body, which also processes the data that is obtained from the cookies. Some of the cookies used may be installed via domains pertaining to FC Barcelona; however, under no circumstances will FC Barcelona use the data obtained for its own purposes.

Our website uses the following cookies:

a.  Technical cookies (those that are strictly necessary):

Technical cookies allow the user to browse the website and use the different options or services available thereon, including those that make it possible to manage the operation of the website and enable functions and services, e.g. monitoring data traffic and communication, identifying sessions, accessing restricted areas, making purchases, recording orders, managing payments, monitoring for fraudulent behaviour as part of the security measures for the service in question, submitting requests to sign up for or take part in an event, counting views for billing purposes (with regard to the licences for the software on which the service runs), using security-related elements during browsing, storing content for the sharing of video or audio files, enabling dynamic content, and sharing content via social media.
The user’s consent is not required for the installation of these cookies. Furthermore, if the user’s browser has been set up to block these cookies, the website may cease to function correctly.

In line with their own policies, some advertising managers may use anonymous cookies to display ads that are of interest to users when they visit other websites. Under all circumstances, users can choose whether to accept or reject these cookies via their browser settings.

3. HOW CAN I DISABLE OR DELETE COOKIES?

When you visit the website for the first time, you have the option of accepting or rejecting the installation of cookies.

Additionally, if you wish to prevent the installation of cookies, you can do the following:

  • Enable private browsing, so that the browser will no longer save your browsing history, website passwords, cookies and other information regarding the websites you visit; or
  • Enable the “do not track” function, so that the browser will instruct the websites that you visit not to track your browsing habits (e.g. in order to show you ads that may be of interest to you on the websites that you visit).

We recommend that you consult your browser’s “Help” section in order to find out about the different options for managing cookies. Remember that blocking cookies may affect all or some of the functionalities of our website.

Below we have provided information on how to manage or disable cookies on the most commonly used browsers:

If you would like to have greater control over the installation of cookies, you can install programs or browser add-ons such as “Do Not Track” tools, which enable you to choose the cookies you wish to allow.

4. HOW CAN I PREVENT COOKIES FROM BEING INSTALLED?

When you visit our website for the first time, we offer you the option of specifying which cookies you wish to install. You can block the installation of any type of cookie except for those of a technical nature, as they are necessary in order to make the website function correctly.

However, as explained in the previous section, users can block the installation of certain types of cookie whenever they wish by adjusting their own browser settings.

Additionally, some of our providers have a direct system that allows you to block the installation of their cookies. Below is a list of providers and links (not all of them may be in Catalan; however, you will easily find the “opt-out” button to block the installation of cookies):

Service Opt-out
Google Analytics https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
Facebook https://www.facebook.com/help/568137493302217
Adobe https://www.adobe.com/es/privacy/opt-out.html
Salesforce https://www.salesforce.com/products/marketing-cloud/sfmc/audience-studio-consumer-choice/

Bear in mind that if you delete the cookies from your browser at any time, your opt-out preferences for the aforementioned providers may also be deleted, and you may have to block the installation of cookies again.

5. OTHER INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT IN RELATION TO USERS

In addition to the information collected via cookies, we may use similar technologies such as tracking pixels and web beacons. Tracking pixels are small graphical files that contain a code managed via a third-party URL. They allow the information on website usage that we collect to be used for analytical purposes or behavioural advertising.

Pixels can collect information about the browser that is used, the IP address and the frequency and length of visits, as well as to track the actions taken by users on the website (e.g. purchases made, products purchased, redirections to other websites, newsletters opened, etc.).

In addition to tracking pixels and web beacons, we may use other means of identifying and tracking users, such as digital fingerprinting. These techniques make it possible to verify certain technical parameters for the user’s device, such as the browser, operating system, screen resolution, plugins and extensions installed, font type, IP address, language, time zone, etc. Once these parameters are combined, the user can be uniquely identified. This information will be used to track the activity of users, analyse their browsing habits and create profiles for them.
