POLFLAM site collects automatically no information, except for information contained in cookie files.
Cookie files are IT data files, in particular text files that are stored on the site user’s terminal and are designed for use on websites. Cookies normally contain the name of the website they originate from, maintenance time on the terminal and the unique number.
Cookies have the following application:
- Customise the website content to user’s preferences and optimise the use of websites. They allow, in particular, for recognition of a user’s terminal and for displaying the website adjusted to the user’s individual needs.
- Create statistics that help understand the way users use the website, which helps improve the website layout and content.
- Maintain the user’s session (once logged-in), which saves the user re-entering their login and password on each sub-page of the service.
As part of the service two basic cookie files are used: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are temporary files that are stored on the user’s terminal until the user has logged out, left the website or closed the application (the browser). Persistent cookies are stored on the user’s terminal over the time specified in the cookie parameters or until they are removed by user.
The following cookies are used in the service:
- Enabling cookies enable the use of services provided in the service, e.g., authorising cookies employed for services that require authorisation within the service.
- Security cookies used, for example, to find authorisation fraud within the service.
- Efficiency cookies enable collecting information on the use of websites.
- Function cookies enable memorising the user’s settings and personalising user interface, e.g. the language or region the user originates from, the font size, the website layout, etc.
- Ad cookies enable users to be provided with more customised advertising content.
In many cases website browsing software (the browser) will by default allow cookies to be stored on users’ terminals. Service users may at any time change cookie settings. In particular, the settings may be changed to the effect as to lock out automatic operation of cookie files in the website setting or notify the user each time cookies are employed in the user terminal. Detailed information on cookie files operation is available from software settings (browser settings).
Restriction of the application of cookie files may affect certain functionalities available from service websites.
