3. What are cookies used for?

A standard cookie file contains information about the identification of your web browser and device, not the particular user. This cookie can remember your settings and browsing history on the Website, optimises your use of the Website and saves your selected parameters.

Some cookies we use can contain more detailed information, even the information that can help identify you and include more data. However, your additional identification data can only be entered by you and provided to us knowingly and only if you consent to it.

Cookies are widely used to support website operation, improve user experience quality, and provide information to website owners.

Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods. Some cookies are “session cookies", meaning that they exist while your browser is open only. These are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Other cookies are “permanent cookies", meaning that they survive after your browser closes. Websites can use them to recognise your computer when you open your browser and browse the Internet again.

4. How do we use cookies?

We use cookie files such as beacons, tags, and scripts to:

• allow you to use our Website, in other words, for the functioning of our Website;
• collect statistical data. The information collected through cookies allows us to improve the Website with usage data and patterns, for example, to see which pages of the Website are the most popular and how users interact with them;
• analyse how people interact with us, which lets us improve our services;
• offer you content based on the pages of our Website you have previously visited.

We may place a text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of your computer. A cookie itself does not contain personal information. Still, it will enable the Company to relate your use of the Website to the Personal Data that you have specifically provided to us voluntarily and knowingly. However, the only Personal Data a cookie can contain is the information you supply yourself. A cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or other cookie files created by other websites. We may use cookies to track your traffic patterns. Also, we use encrypted cookies to authenticate your identity on each page after you log on to the Website. You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you have set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie. Some of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.

A Do Not Track (DNT) request is a setting any user can trigger from their device. The purpose is to allow consumers to limit or prevent the collection of their Personal Data.
Because we do not track our Website users over time and across third-party websites, we do not respond to browser do-not-track signals.

At the same time, even if we follow the DNT, we cannot control the DNT handling of third parties interacting with the Website, such as Google Analytics, AdWords, and others.

To ensure the efficient use of our Website, your computer or mobile device can receive cookies in the following cases:

• to record such data as your choice of language and country so that we can customise our Website according to your preferences;
• to provide you with access to and use of the Company's services;
• to make your interactions with the Website faster;
• to recognise you when you visit our Website once again and to personalise the Company’s services;
• to provide you with customer support;
• to detect and prevent fraudulent or illegal activities on our Website;
• to evaluate the efficiency of our Website, including the marketing information offered by it;
• to show you relevant advertising on and off our Website and measure the performance of such advertising (we may work with our partners to show you ads on or off our Website, such as after you've visited a partner's website).
