II. Cookies and Internet Technologies

  1. Cookies (so-called "cookies") are computer data, in particular text files, which are stored in the final device of Service User (e.g. computer, tablet, smartphone) and are designed to use the websites of the Service. Cookies are not harmful to Users or their devices, do not affect in any way their operation. They also do not cause any configuration changes in the final devices or in the software installed in these devices.
  2. There are two main types of cookies used within the Service:
    1. "session" (session cookies) - temporary files that are stored in the User's end device until logging out, leaving the website or switching off the software (web browser).
    2. "permanent" (persistent cookies)

Cookies are stored in the User's end device for the time specified in the parameters of cookies or until they are deleted by the User.
The following cookies are used within the Service:
- "indispensable" cookies that make it possible to use the services available within the Website, e.g. authentication cookies used for services that require authentication within the Website;
- cookies used to ensure security, such as those used to detect abuse of authentication on the Website;
- "Performance" cookies, which allow the collection of information about how websites are used;
- "functional" cookies, which allow "remembering" the User's selected settings and personalizing the User's interface, e.g. with regard to the chosen language or region of the User's origin, font size, website layout, etc;
- Flash cookies are data files stored by a website on your computer that are supported by the Adobe Flash plug-in. These cookies have no time limit.
- "advertising" cookies, which make it possible to provide Users with advertising content tailored to their interests, visits to websites, also for remarketing purposes using so-called (third party) cookies.

In addition to our own cookies, websites may use so-called (third party) cookies. They are used to provide features or functions from third parties on or via the website, (e.g. advertising features and content, videos and website analytics services). Third party cookies can recognise your device both when you use it to visit a website and when you use your device to visit websites of our suppliers.

  1. An IP address is a unique number assigned to a computer or other device that communicates over the Internet Protocol.
  2. Pixel is software code that allows you to track Users and their behavior on pixel deployed websites. This can be basic tracking of whether a User has visited a website, up to detailed tracking of actions such as adding a product to a cart, selecting a product, submitting a form, etc. Pixel can send the collected information to a third party i.e. code provider.

III. Scope of data collection

Cookies identify the details of the computer and browser used to view a website - for example, they allow us to know whether a particular computer has already visited the website. Cookies usually contain the name of the website they come from, the time they are stored on the end device and a unique number.

As part of the Service, we may process data about how you use the website using your computer, tablet or smartphone or other device to which you access the websites.
With the help of the Internet technologies used, we can process, for example:

- log: time of use of the Service, search data, and any information stored in cookies that uniquely identifies your browser or account;

This information may relate to the most frequently visited pages or error messages displayed on certain pages. Cookies used for storing the so-called "session state" help improve services and enhance the browsing experience.
    - to display behavioral advertising to provide Users with advertising content tailored to their interests or profiles, may also be used to display advertisements outside the Website (also using third party cookies). More in point VI below.

VI. Revocation of cookie consent

Detailed information on the possibility and methods of using cookies are available in the settings of your software (web browser). As a result of changing the settings in your browser an opt - out cookie will be placed. This cookie is only used to identify User objection (lack of consent).
