We use four types of cookies, which we describe in this section.
Essential – cookies that are essential to provide you with services you have requested. For example, these include the cookies that make it possible for you to stay logged into the Two Sides website and make comments on our posts. If you set your browser to block these cookies, then these functions and services will not work for you.
Performance – cookies which measure how often you visit our site and how you use the site. We use this information to get a better sense of how our users engage with our website and to improve our sites, so that users have a better experience. For example, we collect information about which of our pages are most frequently visited, and by which types of users. We also use third-party cookies to help with performance. For example, the Google Analytics cookie gives us information such as your journey between pages and whether you have downloaded anything
Functionality – These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your username when logging-in to the website) and provide enhanced, more personal features. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They can also be used to prevent users being offered a service again that had previously been offered to that user and rejected.
Social networking cookies – These cookies are used to enable you to share pages and content that you find interesting on our websites through third party social networking and other websites.
We use page tags (also known as web beacons) in the emails we send to our subscribers. This means when you receive and engage with email communications we send to you, web beacons track certain behaviour such as whether the email sent to you was delivered and opened. Links within these emails are tracked to show individual recipient’s clicks.
