What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files a visited web page sends in your browser, which saves them on your computer; cookies are commonly used to distinguish users. However, the user as an individual cannot be identified through cookies. Cookies help a web page to remember your activities and preferences for a time so that you do not have to enter them again after revisiting the page or browsing from one page to another.

For what do we use cookies?

Cookies facilitate easy web browsing. Cookies primarily serve these purposes:

  • Making sure our website works as expected.
  • Setting Youtube video play.
  • Analysing visit data and user behaviour.

Our website uses cookies, which can be classified into two basic categories by duration. Temporary (‘session’) cookies are only temporary and saved on your computer until the end of the session, and persistent cookies, which are saved on your computer a longer time. Temporary cookies facilitate keeping information when you browse the Internet and you do not have to enter some information every time. Once you close your browser, temporary cookies are deleted from your device. Persistent cookies help your computer to be identified when you re-visit our website but are unable to identify you as the individual.
