What are cookies?
A cookie is a file that is placed by a website on the site visitor’s computer with possible targets:
- Functional: to facilitate the use of the website, for example, to recognize the visitor on repeat visits, to speed up log-in and to fill in forms faster.
- Analytical: to collect visitor statistics and to use them in particular for further improvement and renewal of the website.
- Commercial: to follow the click behavior of the individual visitor and to carry out commercial actions based on this information, for example offering specific information as a result of specific click behavior.
There are many types of cookies, but the new legislation distinguishes between functional and non-functional cookies. The functional cookies are not bound by the regulations. The non-functional cookies do, including the analytical and commercial ones. The latter include the cookies that Google Analytics and many social sharing buttons of social media networks put.
