Cookies (cookie files) are pieces of IT data, particularly text files, which are stored on the devices of end users, allowing them to use a website effectively. Cookie files make it possible to identify the user’s device and to correctly display a website so that it is adjusted to the individual preferences of the user. Cookie files usually contain the name of a website from which they are sent, the time of their storage on an end user device and their unique number.
We use two types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are temporary files that are stored on a user's device until the user logs out of the website or shuts down the software. Persistent cookies are stored on devices for the period that has been specified in the cookie parameters or until the user removes them manually.
