Cookie information

Our website uses cookies. These are files which store information on your web browser. This requires your consent.
We use cookies in line with Act C of 2003 on electronic communications, Act CVIII of 2001 on electronic commerce and on information society and rules of the European Union.  For websites operating within the European Union, the use of cookies and their storage on the user’s computer or other device requires the user’s consent.

1. Cookie policy

This policy applies to cookies on the domain name website.

2. What are cookies?

Cookies are small files which contain letters and numbers. A “cookie” is a means of exchanging information between the web server and the user’s browser. These data files cannot be executed, do not contain spyware or viruses, and cannot access users’ hard disk space.

3. What are cookies used for?

With the help of information passed through cookies, web browsers are easily recognizable, enabling users to get relevant and personalized content. Cookies make browsing more comfortable, including online data security needs and relevant advertising. Cookies also allow website operators to compile anonymous statistics on the habits of visitors to their websites. With the use of these data website operators are able to personalize the appearance and the content of the website even more.

4. What cookies you may encounter?

Websites may use two types of cookies:

  • – Session cookies, stored on your device until you leave the webpage.
  • – Persistent cookies, which, depending on your web browser settings, may remain on your device for a longer period of time or until you delete them. 
  • – Third party cookies, set by third parties in your web browser (e.g. Google Analytica). They are placed in your browser if the website you visit uses services provided by third parties.

Essential session (session-id) cookies:

Their use is essential for navigating on the website and for the operation of the website. Without their acceptance, the website or parts of it may not be displayed or may be displayed incorrectly.

Analytical or performance cookies:

These help us to distinguish website visitors and collect data on how visitors behave on the website. These cookies are used, for example, to ensure that the website remembers your login when you request it. They do not collect information that may identify you, the data is aggregated and stored anonymously. (e.g. Google Analytics)

Functional cookies:

These cookies are used to improve user experience. They detect and store, for example, what device you used to access the website, or information you have previously provided and requested to be stored, such as automatic logins, your choice of language, text size, font or other customizable elements of the website. These cookies do not track your activity on other websites. However, the information they collect may include personal data that you have shared.

Targeting or advertising cookies:

These help websites to provide the most relevant information (marketing) for your interests. This requires your explicit consent. These cookies collect detailed information about your browsing habits.

5. Do cookies contain personal data?

Most cookies do not contain personal data and cannot be used to identify users. The data stored is necessary for more convenient browsing and it is stored in such a way that it cannot be accessed by an unauthorized person.

6. Why are cookies important on the internet?

The role of cookies is to make browsing more convenient for users, as they set advertising and content for users based on their browsing history. Disabling or restricting cookies makes some websites unusable. However, blocked or restricted “cookies” do not mean that users will not see ads, only that the ads and content displayed are not “personalised”, i.e. not tailored to the user’s needs and interests. Some examples of the use of cookies:

  • – Display content, services and products tailored to the user’s needs.
  • – Offers tailored to the user’s interests.
  • – Remember log in (stay logged in) when you request this.
  • – Remember child protection filters for internet content (family mode options, safe search functions).
  • – Limiting the frequency of advertising; that is, a numerical restriction on the display of an advertisement on a particular website to a user.
  • – Display relevant ads to user.
  • – Geotargeting

7. Factors related to security and data security.

Cookies are not viruses and spyware. Since they are plain text files, they cannot be executed and are therefore not considered programs. However, it is possible that information may be hidden in the cookie with other intentions (malicious intent), so that it may act as spyware. For this reason, antivirus and anti-virus programs may permanently delete the cookies.

Since the internet browsing device and web servers are in constant communication, sending data back and forth, if an attacker (hacker) interferes with the process, he/she may extract the information stored by the cookies. One reason for this could be, for example, that the Internet (WiFi) setting is not encrypted properly. This vulnerability may be exploited to extract data from cookies.

8. Handling and deleting cookies

You can delete or disable cookies in the browser programs you use. Browsers allow cookies by default. You can disable this in the browser settings and delete existing ones. You can also set the browser to notify you when a cookie is sent to the device. It has to be highlighted, however, that disabling or restricting these files will degrade the browsing experience and may also cause an error in the functionality of the website.
