What are real cookies?
Cookies are small files that are used to access the Internet and are stored on a User’s computer, mobile device, tablet or other equipment.
Cookies are installed by a request sent by the server of a web page to your web browser (for example: Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, Mozilla) and are completely “passive” (they do not contain software programs, viruses or spyware and do not have access to the information from the User’s hardware).
What are cookies used for?
Cookies are used to make the Website function better and more efficiently. Cookies are necessary to be able to move around the Website, as well as to use its services and functions. Without these strictly necessary cookies, the Website will not work as well as we would like and we may not be able to provide you with certain services or features.
Cookies are also used in the preparation of anonymous statistics that help us understand how a User prefers to use our Website and Mobile Applications, allowing us to improve their structure and content without identifying the User.
What types of cookies do we use?
We use two types of cookies – for the user session and fixed ones. The first are temporary files that remain on the User’s device until the end of their user session or until the Website (or web browser) is closed. Fixed files remain on the User’s device for the period established by the cookies or until they are manually deleted by the User.
Their purpose is to make the Website work the way you expect.
They aim to remember information about how you prefer the services to look and be used. For example, we use a cookie to tell us if you have opted out of allowing us to use your phone’s location data.
Their purpose is to enable notifications of information or options that we believe will improve your use of the Website. For example, we use a cookie that stops the registration notification if you have already seen it or registered.
They are intended to help us understand how visitors use the services. For example, we use a cookie to tell us how our search suggestions compare to your interactions on the search engine.

Security and Privacy
Cookies are NOT viruses! They take the form of plain text. They are not composed of code, so they cannot be executed and cannot be executed by themselves. Therefore, they cannot be duplicated or copied to other networks to be run or copied anew. Since cookies cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.
Usually, browsers have built-in privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, validity period and automatic deletion after the User has visited a site.
Tips for safe and responsible browsing using cookies
Here are some tips that can ensure safe browsing, but with the help of cookies:
- If you are the only person using the computer, you can set longer periods for the storage of browsing history and access to personal data.
- If you share access to your computer with someone, you can set the browser to delete personal browsing data every time you close the browser.
- Make sure your browser is always up to date. Many of the cookie-based attacks are implemented by exploiting the weak points of old and outdated versions of browsers. Cookies are everywhere and cannot be avoided if you want to enjoy access to the best and biggest websites.
It is possible to set the browser so that these cookies are no longer accepted, or you can set the browser to accept cookies only from certain sites.

These settings are located in the “options” menu or in the “favorites” menu of your browser.
