Cookies Policy

What are cookies?

These are small data files that are necessary for certain website functions, such as logging in. Cookies also allow the site to remember various settings such as language, font and other options you have chosen to display the site. This is why we place cookies on your computer. Most major websites and providers do the same.

What do we use cookies for on this website?

Cookies can be divided into two basic types according to their durability:

  • Short term (session cookies) — they stay in your browser until you close your browser, after which they are deleted.
  • Long-term (persistent cookies) — they remain stored in your browser for a long time (depending on your browser and cookie settings) or until you manually delete them.

We use the following cookies on our website:

  • Technical (short-lived) — these are necessary to ensure the basic functionality of the site, and support tasks such as filling out forms and remembering the language you have selected to view the site in.
  • YouTube (short and long term) — used by the YouTube video player. They are placed on your computer the moment you start the player, and are necessary to allow you to view videos on our site.
  • Google Analytics (long-term) — to help us better tailor the site to your needs, we use Google Analytics to capture anonymised data about user behaviour.
  • AdWords (long-term) — generated by the Google advertising system. We use these cookies to evaluate the effectiveness of our sales channels.

We never use cookies to identify you personally and we never store sensitive or personal data in them.

Most browsers also offer the option to block cookies from being placed on your computer, but in this case you will not be able to use all of our online services.
