Tracking and advertising
Occasionally, we may use digital tracking (usually in a cookie) on ECB websites or in emails we send to you. We use these to ensure you receive appropriate information and do not receive multiple communications about the same thing (such as ticketing offers) from different cricket related organisations.

If you stop cookies, this will normally stop any tracking from the website. Where we plan to use tracking technology, we will ask for your consent.
We hope that you will be happy to have these adverts from the ECB as it is another way we can let you know about tickets for upcoming matches, offers and competitions you may enjoy.
