2. What are Cookies?

A cookie is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, that will be stored on the computer, mobile terminal, or other equipment of a user accessing the Internet. The cookie is installed upon request issued by the user's terminal to a Wolep.com server or to a third-party server.

3. What are Cookies used for?

These files mainly make it possible to recognize the user's terminal and present the content in a relevant way, tailored to the user's preferences.

Cookies provide users with a pleasant browsing experience and support Wolep.com's efforts to provide more user-friendly services, e.g.: - preferences for online privacy, shopping cart or relevant advertising. They are also used in the preparation of aggregate anonymous statistics that help us understand how a user benefits from our web pages, enabling us to improve their structure and content, without allowing the user's personal identification.

 

4. What Cookies do we use?

We use two types of cookies: per-session and fixed. Per-session cookies are temporary files that remain in the user's terminal until the end of the session or until the application is closed. Fixed cookies remain on the user's terminal for a period determined by the cookie parameters or until they are manually deleted by the user.

5. How are Cookies used by this website?

A visit to this website may place the following types of Cookies:
- strictly necessary Cookies for the operation of the website
- analysis Cookies
- advertising Cookies

Strictly necessary Cookies and/or similar technologies are essential for the website to work properly and are set on your device when accessing the website or following the actions performed on the website, as appropriate. You can set your browser to block cookies, but in this case certain sections of the website won't work properly.

The other categories of cookies have the role indicated in section 11 below.

 

6. Do Cookies or similar technologies contain personal data?

Cookies or similar technologies themselves do not request personal information in order to be used and, in many cases, do not personally identify internet users. However, there are situations when personal data can be collected by using cookies in order to facilitate certain functionalities for the user or to offer the user an experience more tailored to their preferences. Such data are encrypted in a way that makes it impossible for unauthorized persons to access them.

What are similar technologies?

There are other technologies that can be used for the same purposes as cookies.

Wolep.com uses Local Storage as a similar technology.

 

7. Blocking Cookies

If you wish to block cookies, some functionalities of the website will be disabled, and this may lead to certain malfunctions or errors when using of our website. For example, blocking cookies may prevent you from:

The links above do not belong to Wolep.com websites and Wolep.com is not responsible for their content.

 

8. Manage cookie placement preferences

In general, an application used to access web pages enables you to save cookies and/or similar technologies on the terminal by default. They are stored for the periods described in the table in section 11 below. These settings can be changed so that the automatic cookies management is blocked by the web browser or the user is informed every time cookies are sent to their terminal.

Detailed information on the possibilities and ways of managing cookies can be found in the settings area of the application (web browser). Limiting the use of cookies may affect certain functionalities of the website.

 

9. Why are Cookies and/or similar technologies important to the Internet?

Cookies and/or similar technologies are a focal point of the efficient operation of the Internet, helping to generate a friendly browsing experience, tailored to the preferences and interests of each user. Declining or disabling cookies may make some websites or parts of websites impossible to use.

Disabling cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising in compliance with the law - just that it will no longer be able to take into account your preferences and interests, highlighted by your browsing behaviour.

Examples of important uses of cookies (which do not require a user to authenticate using an account):

- Content and services tailored to user preferences - categories of products and services

- Offers tailored to user interests

- Retaining passwords

- Retaining child protection filters on Internet content (family mode options, safe search functions).

- Limiting ad serving frequency – limitation of the number of impressions of an ad for a particular user on a website

- Providing user-relevant advertising

- Measuring, optimizing and adapting analytics features - such as confirming a certain level of traffic on a website, what type of content is viewed, and how a user gets to a website (e.g., through search engines, directly, from other websites etc.). Websites carry out these analyses on their use in order to improve their services for the benefit of users.

 

10. Security and privacy issues

In general, browsers have integrated privacy settings that provide different levels of acceptance of cookies, the validity and automatic deletion period after the user has visited a particular website.

Other security issues related to cookies:

• Customisation of browser settings for cookies, in order to reflect a comfortable level of cookie usage security for you.

• If you are the only person using your computer, you can set long expiration dates for storing your browsing history and personal access data if you wish.

• If you share access to your computer, you can consider setting your browser to clear individual browsing data each time you close your browser. This is a way to access the websites that place cookies and to delete any visit information at the end of the browsing session.
