What are cookie files?
Cookie files are IT data, particularly text files that are stored in end devices of users and are intended for simplifying website browsing. Such files generally contain the name of the website from which they originate, the time of their storage on an end device and a unique number.
Cookies may be used by us to adjust the content of websites to user preferences and optimise website browsing, etc. They are also used for creating anonymous, aggregated statistics, which help in understanding in what way the user browses the website, which makes it possible to improve its features. When cookies are used in the above way we never analyse the identity of users based on the information stored in the cookie files.
How long is data stored in cookies?
Two types of cookie files are used: session and persistent cookies. Session cookies are temporary files that are stored on the user's device until the user logs out, leaves the website or closes the software (web browser). Persistent cookies remain on the user's device for a specific period, defined in the parameters of cookie files or until they are deleted by the user. Cookie files are used by the partners of the website operator and are subject to their own privacy policies.
