  3. Types of cookies

    Cookies can be divided according to several criteria.

    Depending on who creates and processes cookies, cookies can be divided into two categories:

    • First party cookies are created directly by the websites or scripts on the same domain. Most often they are used to ensure basic functionality of a website;

    • Third party cookies are created by other websites. These sites own content on the visited website, such as ads, images, or videos.

    Cookies can also be divided according to duration of their storage into:

    • Session cookies are temporary. They are only stored on your device until you have finished using your Internet browser and are cleared once you close it. These cookies are essential for the proper functioning of the website;

    • Persistent cookies we can use for your easier and more convenient navigation on our website. These cookies remain in your browser for an extended period of time or until you manually delete them. The length of this period depends on the selected browser settings. Permanent cookies allow you to transfer information to the Internet server each time you visit a website.

    Depending on the purpose of use, cookies can be divided into:

    • Essential cookies are needed to operate the website. They include, for example, cookies that allow you to log in to secured parts of our website. These cookies do not collect information about users that could be used for marketing purposes or to remember which sites users visited on the Internet;

    • Performance cookies we use to improve the operation of the website. These cookies collect information about how visitors use this website, such as which pages visitors visit most frequently and whether they receive error messages from the website. They also allow us to record and count the number of visitors to the website, which allows us to track how visitors use the website;

    • Functional cookies make it easy to use and improve the functionality of the website. They are used to activate specific features of the website (e.g. video playback) and set them up to your preference (e.g. language), in order to enhance your website experience. At the same time, functional cookies are used to remember your preferences the next time you visit the website;

    • Targeting and advertising (profiling) cookies are used to track the preferences that you reveal through the use of the website and to send advertising messages in accordance with those preferences.
