A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your device (e.g., a computer or mobile device) by a web-page server. Cookies contain information that can later be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
Some of the cookies will only be used if you use certain features or select certain preferences, and some cookies are essential to our products, and will always be used. Web beacons, tags, and scripts may be used in our websites or in emails to help us deliver cookies and count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness, and determine whether an email has been opened and acted upon. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by our service/analytics providers (for example, Google Analytics).
If you elect not to activate the cookie or to later deactivate cookies, you may still visit our website and use our other products, but your ability to use some features or areas of those offerings may be limited.
Users of our products in the UK/EEA only
When you first arrive on our websites, only essential cookies will be placed, and a banner is displayed at the bottom of the page, where you can manage your cookie preferences. If you choose to deactivate all cookies, you may not be able to gain the full benefit of our products. We will resurface the banner every six months, at which point you will be able to amend your preferences.

Many jurisdictions require or recommend that website operators inform users/visitors as to the nature of cookies they use and, in certain circumstances, to obtain the consent of their users to the placement of certain cookies.
Each cookie used by WriteSeen falls within one of the following categories:
1. Essential cookies
Essential cookies (First-Party Cookies) are sometimes called “strictly necessary,” as without them we cannot provide many services that you need. For example, essential cookies help remember your preferences as you use our products.
2. Analytics cookies
These cookies track information about your visits and usage of our products so that we can make improvements and report our performance - for example, to analyse visitor and user behaviour to provide more relevant content or suggest certain activities.
We might also use analytics cookies to test new ads, pages, or features to see how users react to them. Google Analytics is the main technology we currently use in this regard. To learn more about Google Analytics and your privacy, visit How Google uses information from sites or apps that use our services. To learn how you can opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics when using our website, visit Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
3. Functionality or preference cookies
During your visit to our websites, or while you use our products, cookies are used to remember information you have entered or choices you make (such as your username or your region). They also store your preferences when personalizing our products to optimize your use of WriteSeen (for example, your preferred language). These preferences are remembered through the use of persistent cookies, and the next time you use our products, you will not have to set them again.
4. Cookies for promoting WriteSeen paid accounts
These Third-Party Cookies are placed by third-party advertising platforms or networks in order to deliver ads for WriteSeen paid accounts and track the performance of those ads. These platforms may subsequently use information about your visit to writeseen.com to target you with advertising for WriteSeen paid accounts on other websites.
