COOKIE STATEMENT

In this Cookie statement, we inform You about the technologies used in this website, which help ensure the proper functioning of the website, or monitor and analyse the behaviour of visitors of the website during their browsing sessions.

WHAT ARE COOKIES? 

A cookie is a small text file that a website sends to your web browser when you visit it and stores it on the device that you are using. For this reason, the site may “remember” your actions and options (such as registration name, language, font size, and other display options) for a certain period of time so that you do not have to re-enter them each time you visit the site.

The websites use own and/or third party cookies. According to the function they perform, cookies are classified to:

  • Required cookies. These cookies activate the basic browsing or access functions of the website. Without these cookies, the website will not work properly.
  • Functional or technical cookies. With these cookies, the website remembers information about its functioning and appearance, e.g., the visitor‘s chosen language or region.
  • Statistical or analytic cookies that collect anonymous information aggregated into reports that allow the website owner to understand how visitors use the website.
  • Marketing or advertising cookies. They are used to track visitors on many websites in order to serve ads that are tailored to them. They also limit the number of ads displayed and help evaluate the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They are mostly cookies of third-party advertisers.

Cookies are divided into session and persistent cookies according to their validity period.

In terms of the location of their creation, there are two types of cookies:

  • First-party or own cookies are created on the website you are visiting.
  • Third-party cookies are created by other websites. Certain content displayed in your visited website, e.g., adverts or pictures, belongs to these websites.

Trackers and digital fingerprinting are more complex technologies, which operate without cookies (files planted in the user‘s device). For example, when tracking pixels/tags are used in the webpage, each time the user accesses a certain part of the webpage, a “picture” the size of 1 pixel is loaded – that way the server learns that a particular user with a particular IP address was in that part of the webpage, and this information is saved in the server. If the user does not consent to the collection of personal data, such elements of the webpage are disabled immediately. Digital fingerprinting is particularly precise, generated according to the user‘s smart device, and unique IDs allow to identify that the same user is visiting the webpage.

Web beacons, uXDT, or Ultrasonic tracking technology operate in a way that, while visiting the website, the computer generates an ultrasound signal inaudible for people, but received by other smart devices, in which a certain app is operating at that time. To use this technology, it is necessary to assess its effect on personal data protection.
