What Are Cookies
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Cookies are used to adapt the content of websites to the user’s preferences and to optimize the use of websites. They are also used to create anonymous, aggregated statistics that help to understand how the user uses websites, which allows improving their structure and content, excluding personal user identification.
What cookies do we use?
There are two types of “cookies” – “session” and “permanent”. The first of them are temporary files that remain on the user’s device until logging out of the website or turning off the software (web browser). “Permanent” files remain on the user’s device for the time specified in the parameters of “cookies” or until they are manually deleted by the user.
Do cookies contain personal data?
Personal data collected using “cookies” may be collected only in order to perform specific functions for the user. Such data is encrypted in a way that prevents access by unauthorized persons.
By default, the software used for browsing websites allows by default to place “cookies” on the end device. These settings can be changed in such a way as to block the automatic handling of “cookies” in the web browser settings or inform about their every transfer to the user’s device. Detailed information on the possibilities and methods of handling “cookies” is available in the software (web browser) settings.
Limiting the use of “cookies” may affect some of the functionalities available on the website.
