For the proper functioning of the site and to improve the service, the site uses the so-called “cookies” – small text files containing fragments of information about site visitors. These cookies are of two types: generated by the site’s platform and generated by external services used by the platform.
Upon initial visit to the site, the user receives a notification about the use of “cookies” in the form of a message that appears under the address bar of the browser.
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small file consisting of a text set of information that a website transfers from your web browser to your computer’s hard drive, either temporarily for the duration of your visit, or sometimes for longer periods, in depending on the type of cookie. “Cookies” perform certain functions (including distinguishing you from other users of the same website or storing certain information about you, such as your preferences) and are used by most websites to make your browsing experience easier. Each “cookie” is unique to your web browser and will contain some anonymous information. A “cookie” usually contains the name of the domain it came from, the “lifetime” of the “cookie” and a value (usually in the form of a randomly generated number).
Types of cookies:
These are temporary cookies that remain in your web browser’s cookie file only for the duration of your visit and are deleted when you close the browser.
They remain in your web browser’s cookie file even after the browser is closed, sometimes for a period of a year or longer (the exact length of time will depend on the “lifetime” of the individual cookie). Persistent cookies are used when the website operator needs to know who you are over more than one browsing session (for example, to remember your username or website personalization preferences).
“Cookies” on the first page
These are cookies placed on your browser and/or hard drive by the actual website you are visiting. This includes assigning a unique identity to you in order to track your movement on the website. Website operators often use first-party cookies for session management and identification purposes.
Third Party “Cookies”.
Advertisers sometimes use their cookies to show you targeted ads. For example, advertisers may use a profile based on the sites you’ve previously visited to show you more relevant ads.
Do cookies contain personal data?
By themselves, cookies do not require information of a personal nature in order to be used and most often do not identify the identity of Internet users.
All modern browsers allow you to change cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in your browser’s “options” or “preferences” menu. To be aware of these settings, the following links may help you, or you can use the “Help” button from your browser’s menus.
