What is a cookie?
Cookies are small text files stored in the web browser on the computer or mobile device by a website you visit. The browser accesses the cookie file when you visit the website that created the cookie file. There are persistent cookies which remain on your hard drive until you erase them, or they expire, and session (temporary) cookies which are erased when you close the browser.
There are also first-party (placed on a hard disk by a website a user is visiting) and third-party (placed by a domain that is separate from the website a user is visiting) cookie files.
We use cookie files to make user’s experience better, improve website navigation and remember user settings.
Types of cookies we use and how we use them
We use the following types of cookies on this website:
1. Strictly necessary Сookies
These cookies allow you to navigate the website and use some features, for example, to access protected pages, or during user’s registration. Without these cookies, some services are not available. These cookies can be both: persistent and session. In other words, without these cookies, we are not able to guarantee you a smooth experience.
2. Preference Cookies
Preference cookies remember information a user provides (user name, file encoding, timezone, etc.) and customize the site accordingly. Moreover, we use these cookie files to provide services a user asked for, for example, to enable comments.
These files collect information in the anonymous form and do not track your activity on other websites. These cookies can be both persistent and session; they can be either first-party cookies or third-party cookies. They remember information you provide to make your experience better.
3. Analytics Сookies
Analytics cookies, including cookies cache, are placed by analytics systems (such as Google Analytics) and collect information on browsing patterns (including the number of visitors, sources of visits, and user behaviour). We use this data to improve our website according to user needs. For instance, we can track errors or, in the opposite, make sure that the visitors can easily access content they are looking for.
