TOBA’s policies govern their use of the information and we have no control over their use of your information. By submitting an Application, you consent to the transfer of the Application and your information to TOBA.

You also represent in connection with the Application, that you have obtained from the nominee free and full rights for TOBA and Godolphin to use all information provided through the nomination process, additional submissions, correspondence, photographs and videos at their discretion, including, but not limited to, media and promotional purposes.

We also collect information:

(1) To deliver information efficiently to users who request information from us, or who want to use website tools such as to request an Application, and who supply us with their name, address, email and other details. Once you have given us your details, we place a small file called a ‘cookie’ on your computing device (which could be a desktop PC, laptop, mobile phone or tablet) so that the website knows who you are when you return, and can therefore offer useful functionality, such as remembering your username.

(2) To allow us to improve our website by gathering anonymous data about you and your browsing habits, analyzing which webpages visitors access, and seeing how many return to our website. This is done using Google Analytics and involves cookies being set on visitors’ computing devices.

We do not allow third parties any access to the data from these cookies, such as advertisers or partners, No third parties such as advertisers have access to this data, nor does our website ever place any cookies on behalf of any third parties.

(3) To ensure a good browsing experience on the website, we use another cookie to see whether your computing device supports JavaScript, which we use in many areas of the website. This cookie collects no identifying data about you, and is normally deleted from your computer as soon as you close your browser.
