About Third Party Cookies

Tranquility Base Comic does not carry ad supported content, and therefore does not have any advertisement cookies that follow you from site to site tracking your behaviour and preferences. We hate that.

The only third party cookies we have are either functional or for our own analytical purposes.

Types of Cookie

There are two types of cookie: "Session cookies" are temporary in nature and will be deleted when you close your browser. "Persistent cookies" last for a predetermined length of time (from a few hours or days to years) and are deleted after the time is up or if you manually delete browser cookies.
