This page describes our Cookie Policy for Paperturn (


Our Cookie Policy applies to our website (, our branded pages on third party platforms (such as Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn etc.), and applications accessed or used through such websites or third party platforms which are operated by or on behalf of Paperturn.

Okay, so what are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or application.


Paperturn uses cookies in the following ways:

  • Remember information about you, so you don’t have to give it to us again, and again, and again..
  • Keep you signed in, even on different devices
  • Compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how you use Paperturn and to help us improve your structure and content. We cannot identify you personally from this information.
  • Help us personalise Paperturn for you by remembering your preferences and settings.
  • For online behavioural advertising. For this information, we allow 3rd parties to place cookies on our website. For example - Facebook and Google Analytics/AdWords.


What types of cookies are there and which ones do we use?


Simply put, there are two types of cookies:


  • Persistent cookies - remain on a user’s device for a set period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that the user visits the website that created that particular cookie.
  • Session cookies -  are temporary. They allow website operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

Which can then be broken down into “first party” cookies and “third-party” cookies:


  • A “first-party” cookie is a cookie set by Paperturn on Paperturn’s website.
  • A “third-party” cookie is a cookie set by a third party on Paperturn’s website. For example, a Google Analytics cookie on Paperturn’s website.

Paperturn’s website uses all 4 types of cookies.
