How do we use cookies

We pay utmost patience to your data.

Cookies

To improve our services and the functionality of our website as much as possible, we use cookies. These are small text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device and contain information about users’ activities on the website, which is subsequently made available to the server of the website or the relevant third party to which the cookie pertains upon the user’s next visit.

Cookies are useful for, among other things:

  • Ensuring proper functionality and security of the website,
  • Determining which web pages and features are most commonly used by you so that we can tailor our offer to your requests and interests,
  • Identifying which ads you browse most frequently, thereby preventing the display of ads you are not interested in.

We use both our own cookies and third-party cookies (e.g., social networks).

The cookies we use can be divided into two (2) types in terms of their duration:

  • Short-term (so-called session cookies), which remain in your browser only until you close the browser,
  • Long-term (so-called persistent cookies), which remain stored even after you close the browser.

Cookies can also be divided into:

  • Those that are essential for the functioning of the website (so-called essential), which can include necessary cookies that help the website load correctly and quickly, secure it, translate it, store cookie preferences, etc. Without these cookies, our website would not function properly, their use is necessary, and therefore we do not request your consent to store and access them from you.
  • Those that are not essential (so-called non-essential), which include non-essential cookies such as (i) analytical cookies, which are used to gather data about the visits to our website, information about searches made on our site, and to understand how you navigate our site so we can make it as user-friendly as possible, and (ii) functional cookies, which help perform certain functions, such as sharing website content on social media platforms, gathering feedback, and other third-party functions. For these cookies, we use solutions from Google Ireland Limited. There are also advertising cookies, which we use to display content on our site that is of interest to you based on your previous preferences, as well as to display ads based on your interests, collected by third parties listed in this section (below). In this context, please also read the section on Google, social networks. Lastly, there are other cookies that cannot be categorized and performance cookies, which relate to performance and are used to understand and analyze key performance indicators of the website, helping to provide visitors with a better user experience.

Both types of cookies are placed on our website, and for non-essential cookies, we require your consent to use them, which you can withdraw at any time, for example, by adjusting your internet browser settings to disable the storage of cookies (instructions can be found on the support page of your relevant internet browser). You can also disable the use of essential cookies either specifically for this website or for all websites in your internet browser settings (instructions can be found on the support page of your relevant internet browser). However, after disabling essential cookies, it may no longer be possible to use all the features of the website, or the website may not function properly.

In the following section, we provide you with more detailed information about individual cookies:
