What cookies are
We use the term cookies to refer to small data files which in some cases are necessary for certain functions of a website, such as logging in. Thanks to cookies, our website can also remember various settings that you yourself chose for the display or use of the website. That‘s the reason why we place cookies on your computer. It‘s a standard method by which all websites around the world store information that’s important for their operation.
Cookies can be divided according to the length of their validity, and according to who places them on your computer and for what purpose. In terms of the length of their validity, we differentiate between two categories:
Short-term (session) cookies remain on your computer until you close your browser, after which they are automatically deleted.
Long-term (persistent) cookies remain stored on your computer for a long time (depending on your browser’s and the specific cookie’s settings), or until you delete them manually. You will find instructions for doing so, for individual browsers, below on this page.
According to who creates and processes the cookies (i.e. places them on your device, and subsequently uses the information stored in them), we can divide them into two categories:
First-party cookies – created directly by the website, or scripts in the same domain. Most frequently used to ensure the given website’s basic functionality. Without them, most websites could not provide you with their basic functions and various user settings.
Third-party cookies – most frequently cookies from advertising systems, social network widgets, various analytical tools or embedded videos.
What cookies do we use on this website?
Technical (first-party, short-term), necessary to ensure the website’s basic functionality.
We use Google Analytics (third-party, long-term), so that we can better adapt the website to you. In the Google Analytics tool, we use only analytical functions that do not collect data necessary for profiling the website’s users (age, gender, interests, IP address etc.). Cookies from Google (AdWords, DoubleClick), Facebook and Youtube advertising systems (third-party, long-term). These cookies are used for marketing profiling. Thanks to them, we are able to stay in contact with you, for example via personalised advertisements on social networks.
You can delete all of the cookies that are already stored on your computer at any time. Most browsers also offer the option of blocking the placement of cookies on your device. In that case, however, you won’t be able to use all of the online services that websites and e-shops normally offer.
