Your consent to the use of cookies

Upon accessing our site you will receive a message by which you may or may not give your consent in accordance with the applicable legal provisions regarding cookies that you may or may not agree to use during your visit on site.

Until you agree to the use of cookies on our site, no cookies will be used by our site, except those without which the site would not function. Only after you accept the cookies will you be allowed to use them during your visit to our site.

What is a cookie?

An “Internet Cookie” (also known as a “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or simply a “cookie”) is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, that will be stored on your computer, mobile terminal or other user equipment from which the site is accessed.

The cookie is installed by the request issued by a web server to a browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox) and is completely passive (does not contain software, viruses or spyware and can not access the information on the hard drive user).

Moreover, the duration of a cookie is determined, and technically only the web server that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the website associated with that web server.

Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify internet users.

What are the advantages of cookies?

If a browser (you) accesses a web server (our site) again, it may read the information already stored and react accordingly to improve your experience on the site. Thus, cookies help to develop a more pleasant browsing experience on the site and complement the efforts of many websites to provide the most convenient and practical services to users.

How can you stop cookies?

There is a possibility to disable cookies, but this can negatively affect your browsing on certain sites (they may become impractical or difficult to use). On the other hand, cookies do not influence advertising. In other words, if you refuse to accept cookies, it does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising.

It is possible to set in the browser so that these cookies are no longer accepted or you can set the browser to accept cookies from a specific site. But, for example, if you are not registered using cookies, you will not be able to access all the functionalities. All modern browsers offer the ability to change cookie settings. These settings are usually found in your browser’s “options” or “preferences” menu.
