What cookies does Two Sides use on its site?

We use four cookies from Google Analytics which are essential for users’ experience of our Site. They provide us with information on how many unique browsers we have had during a given period and how often people visit our site, where and when they tend to come in and which pages they were looking at before they left, and so on. We use this information to best manage content for users and to improve all users’ experience on our website. We do not use cookies to collect information that indentifies you personally. For this reason these cookies are often called ‘anonymous analytics cookies’ and are entirely benign.

You can find out more about cookie use by Google Analytics here. The longest lifespan of these cookies is two years.

We have no means of tracking your surfing behaviour on other websites before or after you visit the Two Sides site.

What is the legal position on cookies?

The law about use of non-essential cookies changed in May 2011. You can find more information about this from the Information Commissioner’s Office

In the meantime, you can tell your web browser to notify you whenever a website attempts to set a cookie. You can also tell your browser to disable and/or refuse all cookies, although doing so may affect your experience of many websites. Each browser has slightly different ways of handling cookies but you can usually find out how to do it via the ‘Help’ or ‘Settings’ options on your browser.

There’s also a really useful site called All About Cookies which is a free resource to help marketers and consumers understand the issues surrounding the use of cookies.
