In the context of the EU ePrivacy Directive, we offer a brief explanation of how cookies work. Cookies are text files that contain a small amount of information that is downloaded to your computer, mobile phone or other device when you visit a website. Cookies are useful because they allow the website not only to recognize the user’s device, but also to give the user access to the functions on the page.
In principle, we divide cookies into two types.
Persistent cookies – these cookies remain on the user’s device for the time specified in the cookie. They are activated whenever a user visits the website that created the cookie.
Session cookies – These files allow the website operator to link user activities when the user opens the browser window and exits when the browser window is closed. Session cookies are created temporarily. When you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a website stores on your computer or mobile device when you browse it. With this file, the website keeps track of your steps and preferences (such as your login name, language, font size, and other display settings) for a while, so you don’t have to re-list them when you next visit the site or browse its pages.
- Your display preferences, such as adjusting color contrast or font size
- the fact that you have already responded to a survey appearing in a separate window (pop-up), through which you can express your opinion on the content of the page (it will not be shown again);
The information stored in cookies is not used to identify you personally and the structure of the data is fully under our control. Cookies are not used for purposes other than those described herein.
Do we also use other cookies?
Some of our sites or sub-sites may use additional or different cookies than those mentioned above. In this case, a separate cookie notice will provide details of their use on the page in question.
How to control cookies
You can review and / or delete cookies at your discretion – see aboutcookies.org for details. You can clear all cookies stored on your computer and set most browsers to prevent them from being stored. In this case, however, you may need to manually adjust some settings each time you visit the website, and some services and features may not work.
