What are cookies?

Cookies are information data, textual files, stored on user devices (computers, phones, etc.) intended for use on websites. These files allow for the recognition of the user’s device and display the website in a way that is adapted to the individual preferences of the user. Cookies usually contain the name of the originating website, the time of their storage on the device, and a unique number.

What do we use cookies for?

Cookies are contained in the HTTP protocol used for communication between web servers and browsers. They consist of a key that determines the name, value, purpose, and duration after which the browser should delete the cookies. Their functions are mostly standard for browser settings. Cookies are used for optimal use of the website and adapting its content, including our offers, to user preferences, and for increasing usability and personalization of website content.

What cookies do we use?

We use several types of cookies – “session” and “persistent” cookies, as well as “third-party” cookies.

Session cookies are temporary files that remain on the user’s device until logging out of the website or turning off the software (web browser) – and then are automatically deleted from the user’s device. Persistent cookies are files that remain on the user’s device in accordance with the specified duration or until the user manually removes them. Privacy rules of these companies apply to cookies used by website operator partners.

The cookies we use are primarily intended for the optimal functioning of our website, for example, by “remembering” entered data so that the user does not have to enter them every time. We also use cookies that allow you to customize the content presented on the internet (such as ads and photos) to your preferences.

Privacy policy and cookies

When a user uses our website, various types of data are collected using cookies that, in principle, do not represent personal data (they do not allow for user identification). However, some information, depending on their content and use, can be associated with a particular person and are then considered personal data. According to the rules, data is encrypted, which prevents unauthorized access.
