What are "cookies"?

"Cookies" should be understood as IT data, in particular text files, stored in users' end devices (such as a computer, telephone or tablet), sent via websites. These files allow to recognize the user's device and properly display the website tailored to his individual preferences, allow to display the website in the user's language "remembered" by these files, as well as to use other website settings selected by the user. "Cookies" usually contain the name of the website from which they originate, their storage time on the end device and a unique number.

What do we use "cookies" for?

"Cookies" are used to adapt the content of websites to the user's preferences and device and to optimize the use of websites. These files allow saving user's choices regarding language, browser, settings of selected elements of the website or resignation from profiled advertisements, as well as saving information about the user's location. "Cookies" are also used to facilitate logging in to the user's account, including through social media, and to allow switching between subpages on websites without having to log in again on each subpage. At the same time, "cookies" are used to secure websites, e.g. to prevent unauthorized access. 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 identification of the user. "Cookies" also help to ensure the refinement and smooth operation of websites, including website performance testing. "Cookies" are also used to identify which ads the user has displayed, as well as to display ads most suited to the user's activity on websites.

What "cookies" do we use?

As a rule, two types of "cookies" are used - "session" and "permanent". The first of these 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 removed by the user. Cookies used by the website operator's partners, including in particular website users, are subject to their own privacy policy.
