Cookies

The Two Worlds website uses cookies. By using this website and agreeing to this policy, you consent to our use of cookies.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that gets saved on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another. Cookies can also be used to track web browsers and users for the purpose of collecting statistics.

Some cookies (known as session cookies) are deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Other cookies (called persistent cookies) remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach their expiry date.

Cookies may also be described as: strictly necessary, functional, or analytical.

Strictly necessary cookies are required and essential for the operation of the website. The website would not work without them.

Functionality cookies are used to recognise visitors and visitor preferences when they return to a website or when they perform the same tasks. This could include for example: logging in or leaving a comment.

Analytical or performance cookies are used to recognise and count the number of visitors which come to a website and how they use and interact with the site. Analytics can be used to create anonymous reports and web usage statistics.

Two Worlds uses WordPress as it’s Content Management System (CMS). WordPress is a very popular CMS, used to provide website content for over 15 million websites. WordPress uses cookies for two main purposes:

  1. Registered members need a cookie to be able to log in. This is ‘strictly necessary’ as WordPress won’t work without it.
  2. Visitors who leave a comment on a blog post will also have a cookie set on their computer. This is not “strictly necessary” as it’s a user preference.
