1. What are cookies
A cookie is a small text file which includes a unique identifier that is sent by a web server to your computer, mobile phone or any other internet enabled device when you visit a website or mobile app. Cookies are widely used to make sites work efficiently and to collect information about users' online preferences. For simplicity, this Policy refers to cookies but we may use other similar technologies in the same way.
2. What types and categories of cookies can be used.
There are different types of cookies:
- Session Cookies. These cookies are valid as long as Your browser or application is open. They are deleted automatically as soon as you close your browser or application.
- Persistent Cookies. These cookies help us to remember your settings when you revisit our website or reuse Services, so they remain on your computer after you have visited the website or used our Services.
- First-party cookies. These cookies are created by the site you visit. The site is shown in the address bar.
- Third-party cookies. These cookies are created by other sites. These sites own some of the content, like ads or images, that you see on the webpage you visit.
Cookies are also divided into categories:
- Strictly Necessary Cookies. These cookies are required to enable for you to use the features offered by our website and Services and allow us to identify you.
- Functionality Cookies. These cookies allow our website and Services to remember your choices (such as your username, language, etc.), thereby improving and personalizing our website and Services.
- Performance or analytic cookies. These cookies collect information about how and when you use our website and Services (e.g. pages viewed most often) and these cookies are used to find out if you receive error notifications.
- Advertising (targeting) cookies. These cookies collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising, and the content we deliver, more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advert or particular content, as well as help measure the effectiveness of an advertising or marketing campaign. These cookies are usually placed by third party advertising networks. They remember the websites you visit and that information is shared with other parties such as advertisers.
There are also other technologies that allow us to collect your data including data stored on your web browser or device, identifiers associated with your device and other software for similar purposes. This includes the following:
- Pixel tags. Pixel tags (also called beacons or pixels) are small blocks of code installed on (or called by) a webpage, email, app, or ads which can retrieve certain info about your device and browser and how you interact with it. This includes, for example, information about your device type, operating system, browser type and version, website visited, time of visit, referring website, IP address, whether you’ve opened an email or clicked on an ad, and other similar info, including the small text file (the cookie) that uniquely identifies the device. Pixels provide the means by which third parties can set and read browser cookies from a domain that they do not themselves operate and collect info about visitors to that domain, typically with the permission of the domain owner.
- Local Storage/Session Storage. These are web storages that allow to store some information on your computer like cookie. Local storage stores information permanently until it is deleted either by you, and session storage stores information only for one session, until you close the page in the browser. Unlike cookies, information is not sent to the server each time a request is made, storages allow to store more information (usually up to 5MB), and are also more secure and faster.
- Software development kits. Software development kits (also called SDKs) function like pixels and cookies, but operate in the mobile app context where pixels and cookies cannot always function. Pieces of code (the SDK) are installed in the app that allow us and our partners to collect certain info about your interaction with the app and info about your device and network.
- Flash cookies. This is a technology that can provide cookie-equivalent functionality and is capable of storing information on your device. This information is often stored in a different file to other cookies. This means it has to be managed and deleted in a different way.

Тo analyze and continually improve the use of our products we have integrated Google Analytics service provided by Google into our website. Google Analytics service uses only the analytical category of cookies. Google Analytics cookies are used to collect information about how visitors use our website. These cookies collect information in the aggregate to give us insight into how our website is being used.
Please note that on this website, Google Analytics code is supplemented by “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure anonymized collection of IP addresses (that is, to provide IP masking). We anonymize IP addresses in Google Analytics, and the anonymized data is transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. Further information concerning Google’s terms and conditions of use and data privacy policies can be found at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245, http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html or at https://www.google.de/intl/en_uk/policies/ (opens external links in a new tab).
