Cookies are used by almost all websites. A cookie is a small data file that is stored in users’ web browsers in order to recognize their computers. A web browser is a computer program used to download and display web pages, such as Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. A cookie is a passive file and cannot collect information from users’ computers or spread computer viruses or other malicious programs. Cookies can, among other things, be used to prepare statistics of users' use of the site. Cookies are used to recognize computers in the event of subsequent visits. No personal information, such as name, address or similar, is stored in our cookies.
All cookies delete themselves after a given number of days, weeks or months; the time may vary according to purpose. It should be noted that a cookie is renewed at each visit and the storage period is reset.
If you do not wish to receive cookies you can set your web browser to disable cookies. Note that most browsers offer different levels of privacy, such as allowing first party cookies but blocking third party cookies, or notifying you each time a website wants to install a cookie. Be aware that disabling cookies in this way will prevent new cookies from being set, but will not stop previously set cookies from operating on your device unless you delete all cookies in your browser settings. The instructions for managing cookies in your browser can usually be found via the browser’s Help function or in a smartphone manual.
