We use two types of cookies: session and fixed cookies. Session cookies are temporary files that remain on the user’s device until the end of the session or the application is closed.

8. MANAGING PREFERENCES REGARDING COOKIE PLACEMENT

In general, an application used to access web pages allows the saving of cookies and/or similar technologies on the device by default. These are stored for the periods described in the table in section 11 below. These settings can be changed so that automatic management of cookies is blocked by the web browser, or the user is informed every time cookies are sent to the device.

Detailed information about the possibilities and methods for managing cookies can be found in the application’s (web browser’s) settings area. Limiting the use of cookies may affect certain website functionalities.

9. WHY ARE COOKIES AND/OR SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES IMPORTANT FOR THE INTERNET?

Cookies and/or similar technologies are a central point for the efficient operation of the Internet, helping to generate a user-friendly browsing experience tailored to each user’s preferences and interests. Refusing or disabling cookies can make some websites or parts of websites impossible to use.

Disabling cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising, but it simply means that it will not be able to take into account your preferences and interests as indicated by your browsing behavior.

Examples of important uses of cookies (which do not require user authentication through an account):

  • Content and services tailored to user preferences, such as product and service categories
  • Offers tailored to user interests
  • Password retention
  • Retention of child protection filters regarding internet content (family mode options, safe search functions)
  • Limiting the frequency of ad display – limiting the number of times a particular user sees an ad on a website
  • Providing relevant advertising to the user
  • Measuring, optimizing, and adapting analytical features, such as confirming a certain level of traffic on a website, what type of content is viewed, and how a user arrives at a website (e.g., through search engines, directly, from other websites, etc.). Websites conduct these analyses of their use to improve their services for the benefit of users.

10. SECURITY AND PRIVACY-RELATED ASPECTS

In general, browsers have integrated privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, validity period, and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular website.

Other security aspects related to cookies:

  • Customizing browser settings regarding cookies to reflect a comfortable level of security in using cookies
  • If you are the only person using the computer, you can set long expiration periods for storing browsing history and personal access data.
  • If you share access to the computer, you can consider setting the browser to delete individual browsing data every time you close the browser. This is a way to access websites that place cookies and delete any visitation information when the browsing session is closed.
