What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files recorded on your computer/device by the websites you visit.

The use of cookies is very widespread and common with almost all internet sites. You can find out more about cookies here (external link).

Types of cookies
Types of cookies according to their functionality:
“Essential cookies” are necessary for the site to function and enable the visitor to move around the website and use its features (eg access to secure areas of the site).

“Functional cookies” enable websites to remember your choices regarding the use of the page (eg changes in font size, personalization of the page, etc.) or for the functioning of various additional services, such as leaving comments on blogs and forums.

“Performance (statistical) cookies” collect statistical data about pages for page owners, mainly for the purpose of measuring and improving page performance. They function in such a way that they collect data about your use of Internet pages (for example, information about the pages you visit and errors on those pages, page loading speed, etc.), while they do not collect information that can identify you more closely.

“Marketing cookies” are used to select the ads that will be shown to you, in such a way that they are more relevant to you and your interests. These cookies track your visits to certain websites and share this information with other organizations (site owners and advertisers).

Cookie duration

“Temporary cookies” remain in your browser only during your visit (session) to the website and are destroyed after you leave the site.

“Permanent cookies” remain in your browser even after you leave the site, and how long they will remain (hours, days, years) depends on the lifetime embedded in each individual cookie. Permanent cookies can be used, for example, to memorize data entered when logging into a service (so that the visitor does not have to log in again each time). They are also used to monitor the behavior of visitors on the website, in order to better understand from the collected data what visitors like and what they don’t, which allows the owners of the site to improve the functionality of the site. Regardless of the built-in expiration time, you can delete each cookie yourself at any time.
