The 2TSid serves to uniquely identify you when you visit our websites, have a request or order or use a product or service. For ordering of most services and products we require you to have registered a 2TSid. Registration with 2TSid may allow you to customize and control your privacy settings.

In such cases, registration details provided by you for a product or service will only be used for the specific purpose of providing you with that product or service.
