5. Cookies

  1. Cookies are computer data, in particular text files, stored on the end user's device (usually on your computer's hard drive or in your mobile device) to store certain settings and data by the user's browser in order to use websites. These files allow for recognition of the user's device and appropriate display of the website, ensuring comfort during its use. The storage of cookies allows the website and the offer to be tailored to the user's preferences - the server recognizes the user and remembers preferences such as visits, clicks and previous actions.
  2. Cookies contain, in particular, the domain name of the website from which they originate, the time of storage on your terminal device and a unique number to identify the browser from which you connect to the website.
  3. Cookies are used in order to:
    1. adjust the content of websites to user preferences and optimize the use of websites,
    2. creating anonymous statistics, which by helping to determine how a user uses websites allow for improving their structure and content,
    3. providing website users with advertising content tailored to their interests.
  1. Cookies are not used to identify a user and on their basis is not determined his identity.
    1. Cookies might be divided into:
    2. Essential cookies - these are absolutely essential for the proper functioning of the website or functionality you wish to use, as without them we would not be able to provide many of the services we offer. Some of them also ensure the security of services provided by us electronically.
    3. Functional cookies - are important for the operation of the website due to the fact that: 

- their purpose is to enrich the functionality of websites; without them the website will work correctly, but will not be adapted to user preferences,

- their purpose is to ensure a high level of functionality of the website; without them the level of functionality of the website may decrease, but their absence should not prevent the complete use of the website,

- they serve the majority of website functionality; their blocking will cause that selected functions will not work properly.

  1. Business cookies - make it possible to implement the business model on the basis of which the website is made available; their blocking will not make the entire functionality of the website unavailable, but it may lower the level of service provision due to the website owner's inability to realise revenues subsidising its operation. This category includes, for example, advertising cookies.
  2. Cookies for website configuration - to enable setting functions and services on websites.
  3. Security and reliability cookies - to verify authenticity and optimise website performance..
  4. Authentication cookies - to provide information when a user is logged in so that the website can show relevant information and functions.
  5. Session status cookies - these cookies enable us to record information about how users use a website. They may relate to the most frequently visited pages or possible error messages displayed on some pages. Session state cookies help to improve our services and make browsing more comfortable.
  6. Cookies which analyse the processes taking place on the website - they enable efficient functioning of the website and the functions available on it.
  7. Ad serving cookies - to display advertisements that are of greater interest to users and at the same time of greater value to publishers and advertisers; cookies may also be used to personalise advertising and to display advertisements outside of web pages.
  8. Location-aware cookies – they allow you to tailor the information displayed to your location.
  9. Cookies for analysis, research or audience auditing – they allow the owner of websites to better understand the preferences of their users and through analysis improve and develop products and services. Usually the website owner or research company collects information anonymously and processes data on trends, without identifying personal data of individual users.
  10. As a rule, the use of cookies to adapt the content of websites to user preferences does not mean that any information identifying the user is collected, although such information may sometimes have the nature of personal data, i.e. data enabling the attribution of certain behaviors to a specific user. Personal data collected using "cookies" may only be collected in order to perform specific functions for the user. Such data is encrypted in a manner that prevents access by unauthorized persons.
  11. Cookies used by this website are not harmful to the user or the final device used by the user, so in order for the website to function properly it is recommended not to disable their use in browsers. In many cases, the software used to browse the Internet (web browser) by default allows to store information in the form of "cookies" and other similar technologies in the end user's device. The user can change the way the browser uses cookies at any time. In order to do so, the browser settings must be changed. The method of changing the settings varies depending on the software (web browser) used. Relevant instructions can be found on the subpages, depending on the browser you use.
  12. Cookies are also used to facilitate logging into your account, including via social media, and to enable you to move between subpages on websites without having to log in again on each subpage. At the same time, cookies are used to secure websites, e.g. to prevent access by unauthorized persons.
  13. As part of the cookie technology, the Administrator may use tracking pixels or pure GIF files in order to collect information about the user's use of its services and his/her reaction to marketing messages sent via e-mail. A pixel is a piece of software code that allows an object, usually a pixel-sized image, to be embedded on a page, which provides the ability to track user behavior on the web pages on which it is deployed. When the appropriate consent is given, the browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the server that stores the pixel, so the processing of data collected by the pixel is carried out under the data protection policy of the partner who administers the aforementioned server.
  14. The Administrator may use web log files (which contain technical data such as the user's IP address) to monitor traffic on its services, troubleshoot technical problems, detect and prevent fraud, and enforce the User Agreement.  
  15. The Administrator herein announces that the website does not respond to Do Not Track (DNT) signals, but you may disable certain forms of online tracking, including certain analytics and personalized advertising, by changing the cookie settings in your browser or using our cookie consent tools (if applicable).
