WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small pieces of information that are stored in your internet browser or in a device that enables you to browse web pages. Cookies help the browser to work with websites. Cookies do not collect any data stored on your computer or in your files – they only store the data that our site needs. We use several types of cookies that are necessary for running the website, ensuring its functionality, performance and targeting. Cookies give you a better web browsing experience by remembering your settings or activities (e.g. login). Cookies also provide us with information about how visitors view the website, e.g. whether this is their first visit and so on. We use all this information to make your web browsing even better.
WHAT FILES DOES THE COOKIES USE AND WHY?
Some cookies are necessary in order to browse our website, use its functions and access the secure part. The use of these cookies is necessary for working with our website. We do not use these cookies to collect personal information about you. We use this type of cookie, for example, during your visit when pre-filling out forms that you enter on several sites, so that you do not have to fill them in more than once.
We also use functional cookies to remember the actions you have taken or the information you have provided, such as your username, language, or the region where you are located. This allows us to customise the site specifically to your preferences. For example, authentication cookies are functional cookies used for the duration of your visit (or even longer if you click the “remember” option) and allow users, for example, to verify them the next time they visit.
In order to improve the website, we use performance or analytical cookies to collect information about how you use our website and how often. These cookies collect information only for statistical purposes and do not collect any information that can identify you personally. However, because these cookies are not absolutely necessary for using our website, we require consent to their use. The performance or analytical cookies that we use include:
- analytical cookies - we use these cookies to estimate the number of unique visitors, to improve our site, and to identify keywords in search engines that lead to our website. These cookies are not used for targeting online marketing.
- We also use Google Analytics and other third-party analytical tools to help measure how users interact with our site. These cookies remember what our users did on the previous pages and the way they interact with the webpages. For more information about Google Analytics, please visit the Google information page.
Advertising targeting cookies are used on our website in order to tailor marketing for you and your interests – we will provide you with more personalised services in the future. These cookies remember that you have visited our website and we share them with third parties, such as advertising systems. Although these cookies may track your visits to our website and other sites, they do not identify you personally. Without these cookies, the ads you see may be less relevant and less interesting to you. We do not use third-party advertising cookies.
Cookies for social networks are used in various social networks that have “plug-in modules”. We have integrated these modules into our website. However, your consent to these cookies is required because some third-party cookies are used for behavioural advertising targeting, analytics and/or market research.
HOW LONG WILL COOKIES REMAIN ON MY COMPUTER OR MOBILE DEVICE?
The length of time a cookie stays on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or a “session” cookie. A session cookie lasts until you stop browsing the web. Persistent cookies can last until they expire or are manually deleted. Most cookies we use are persistent and expire from 90 days to two years from the date they were downloaded to your device. If you do not want cookies in your browser, you can easily delete them manually in your browser settings.
