A cookie is a small text file placed on the hard disk by the website server. The file cannot be misused to run programs or put viruses into a computer. Cookies are uniquely allocated to you and can only be read by the web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
One of the primary functions of a cookie file is to save you time. If, for example, you adapt a website or browse it, on subsequent visits the cookie will remind the website of specific information about your preferences. This simplifies the process of displaying the relevant content, facilitates navigation at the website, etc. As soon as you return to the web server, information input earlier can be read, so that it is easier for you to use the website’s functions that you have already adapted.
When delivering a cookie to our website, assistance can be provided by website signals (beacons) known as clear gif technology. This technology is a tool that we use for compiling summary statistical data about the website’s use, such as information about how many users at the website have chosen key elements (e.g. links or graphics). We can communicate summary statistical data about the website to partner companies and the public.
