2plan Data Privacy & Cookies Policy
Data protection is taken seriously at 2plan and safeguarding the privacy of our website visitors and clients information in general is very
important to us. Our Data Privacy & Cookies Policy provides details on which any personal information we may collect from you, or you
provide to us, will be processed and used by us.
By using our website or by registering for any of the products and services we offer through it, you are confirming to us that you
understand and accept that your personal information may be used by us in the manner described below. We may keep details of your
visits to our website including, but not limited to, traffic data, location data, weblogs.
2plan are not responsible for any information provided by any other source once you leave the 2plan site. Any links from our website to
other websites are provided merely for your convenience and do not imply our endorsement of the content or the provider. If you follow a
link to any of these websites, you do so at your own risk and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for the content of such
websites. You need to be satisfied that these links are safe.
Cookie Types and Details
We may obtain information about your general internet usage by using a cookie file which is stored on your browser or the hard drive of
your computer. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. They help us to improve our site and to
deliver a better and more personalised service. Some of the cookies we use are essential for the site to operate. The cookies we use are:
Session cookies – Session cookies only retain information about your activities during your visit to the site. Once you close the browser, the
session cookies are lost and the site will not recognize you the next time you return to the site. Session cookies help websites to recognize
you and remember the information provided by you as you move from one page to another within the same website. If you have to login
to a website every time you open your browser and visit it – then it is using a session cookie to store your login credentials. Many websites
use session cookies for essential site functions, and to make sure pages are sent to the browser as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Persistent cookies – Persistent cookies enable websites to remember your preferences and settings (i.e. login information, language
selection, font size preference, etc.) so that they can offer you a more personalized and convenient access the next time you visit. For
security purposes, your login information is generally encrypted by the web server before it gets stored in a cookie. Persistent cookies can
exist for an extended period of time until expired or until they are deleted. They enable the site to recognize you on a continuous basis.
This is done by the web server planting a small text file with a unique ID tag on your computer, while keeping a matching file on the server.
On subsequent visits to the site, your browser delivers this cookie over to the site, allowing the site to retrieve the matching file. If you
login into a website, then shut down your computer, start it up again, and go back to the website to find you are still logged in – then it is
using a persistent cookie to remember you.
