A cookie does not contain or collect any information. When an internet browser connects to a visited server, however, it can help to set up a service to increase the user’s convenience, e.g. by remembering previous purchases or account settings.
Cookies are stored on the computer’s hard drive and contain:
• The name of the server from which they were sent
• Lifespan of the cookies
Cookies are not viruses; they are written in plain text. They are not set up to be executable or auto-executable, nor can they replicate themselves or spread to other networks. Due to the fact that they cannot perform any of these functions, cookies do not fit the standard definition of viruses.
In your web browser, you can set which cookies that you use on websites. You should know that there is one cookie file, thanks to which we remember which cookie preferences you have selected. It thus ensues that:
1. If you delete all cookies from your computer, you will have to update the preferences with us again.
2. In the event that you work with a different computer with a different profile or with a different browser, we will again require your preferences.
The cookies that we use are divided into the following categories:
Strictly necessary cookies
Necessary cookies are indispensible for the functioning of websites. Without them, sites would not function. These cookies do not gather information about you which could be used for marketing, nor do they remember where you have been on the internet.
Operating cookies are used for improving the functionality of websites. Such cookies are those that, for example, remember content that you have visited on a website.
These cookies do not gather any information according to which it would be possible to determine your identity – all gathered data are anonymous and serve only for optimisation of our website. We can also find out what interests our users and thus ensure the effectiveness of advertising (notice: we do not use such information in order to send advertisements to you in the event that you visit our site).
We would like to notify you that by using our website you consent to the use of operating cookies.
Functional cookies serve for providing services or remembering settings with the purpose of ensuring maximum convenience during your visit. This involves, for example, your login information that you provided when previously registering on the website. Cookies can remember items that you have placed in a shopping cart on an e-shop or, for example, whether you have encountered an error, for instance in a form.
Use of these cookies depends exclusively on your settings. Deactivation of these cookies can mean that you will lose certain services and support which we would provide to you in the opposite case. Also, it is not out of the question that upon deactivation of these cookies we will not remember that you have already refused a particular service.
These cookies are connected with services provided by other firms. This involves, for example, “Like” and “Share” buttons. These services are provided by a different firm in connection with your having visited our website. Thanks to these cookies, we can connect you to social networks and, based on information about your visit, you will then receive advertising from other websites.
Use of these cookies is solely up to you. Deactivation of such cookies will be a signal for us to stop offering you some of our services. Administration of these cookies is handled by other firms; therefore you have the possibility – if you want to prohibit them – to use tools that are available for this purpose on these companies’ websites.
European Union laws require organisations sending cookies from their websites to visitors’ computers to gain their visitors’ consent following provision of clear and comprehensible information on how cookie files on websites are used.
