What is “cookies”?
Cookie is a short text file sent into a browser by the visited website. It allows the web to remember information about your visit such as preferred language and other settings. Thus, the next visit of the same website may be easier and more productive. Cookies are important because web browsing would be far more difficult without them.
Cookies serve various purposes. We use them to store your safe browsing settings, to choose relevant ads and monitor the number of visitors on the website, to facilitate registration of new services or to protect your data.
Why do we need your consent?
Based on Directive 2009/136/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council which amended Article 5(3) of Directive 2002/58/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council concerning the processing of personal data and protection of privacy in the electronic communication sector, the protection of the Internet user was strengthened as the user’s consent and additional information are required before the cookie is saved, or before the access to the information stored in the user’s computer is gained. It is, thus, switchover from “opt-out” to “opt-in” mode. This adjustment was taken into consideration by the amendment to the Act on Electronic Communications in the text of the Act No. 468/2011 Coll.
