3. What are cookies

Cookies are small text files consisting of letters and numbers, which will be stored on the user's device (computer, mobile phone or other devices) when he accesses the Internet. Cookies are installed through the request sent by a web server to a
owser and are completely passive, in the sense that they do not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access information on the user's hard drive. Cookies can be recognized by the website that downloaded them or by any other website that uses the same cookies. In this way, websites can find out if a device has visited them before.

A cookie contains information that links your
owser to our website. Each time you return to our website, the web server will read the information already stored and we will no longer ask you about your options, for example regarding online privacy, website language, saving registration data or relevant advertising. You can change these options at any time.

The use of cookies does not involve the request for personal data and, in most cases, does not personally identify users.

Advantages of Cookies:

  • Availability: cookies may be available for a longer period of time. Once cookies are stored on the user's hard drive, they will be available as long as the user does not delete them manually. Even if the server fails, information can be retrieved from cookies.
  • Convenience: In addition to websites, cookies can also remember information related to forms. So, every time the user visits the website, the address form will be filled in automatically.
  • Server request: All data related to cookies is stored on the hard disk without using server resources. No additional load or weight is added to the server.
