About Cookies

Cookies are nothing new; all web page visitors have many cookies from various web pages stored on their computers, tablets and mobile phones. The only new feature is the legislation (Electronic Communication Act; ZEK-1) that has led to the changes in informing the visitors and their consenting to the use of cookies.

What Are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files that most web pages store in the devices with which the users access the Internet in order to identify the individual devices that the visitors have used for their access. Their storage is under the full control of the user’s browser; the user can optionally limit or disable the storage of cookies. Cookies are not harmful and are always time-limited.

Why Are Cookies Required?

Cookies are essential for providing user-friendly services. Thanks to them, the interaction between web users and the website is faster and easier. They also enable the website to remember the user’s preferences and experiences and therefore save time as well as make web browsing more efficient and friendly.

Some specific examples of the use of cookies:

  • to achieve a better user experience of the website, we adjust the content display according to past visits
  • to save the selection when creating a shortlist of devices, offers and their comparison
  • in the parts of websites where login is required, we keep you logged in
  • to identify your device (computer, tablet, mobile phone), allowing adjustment of the content display to suit your device
  • to track the visits, which allows us to verify the effectiveness of content display, relevancy of ads and continuously improve our website
  • cookies are essential for the functioning of certain services (e.g. online banks, online shops and other forms of e-commerce, etc)
Disabling Cookies

It is up to you to decide whether you will allow the storage of cookies on your device. Cookie settings can be controlled and changed in your web browser.

For information on cookie settings, select the web browser you are using.

Settings Up Google Analytics Cookies Anonymisation

We anonymise Google’s cookies with the SafeMetric™.

To collect statistical data on the use of our websites, we use first-party cookies. This means that they can be served and read only by our website and not by third parties (e.g. Google). SafeMetric™ enables us to cooperate with external web analytics providers in accordance with the requirements of the new law and without any critical impacts on the relevance of the obtained metrics. For the user, this means that he or she presumably consents to collect anonymised information about his or her visit by accessing our website. However, the user can also cancel or prohibit the website tracking.

Anonymisation of data with the SafeMetric™ solution is not reversible, which means that it is not possible to connect or identify individual users on the basis of anonymous data. The procedure therefore results in complete statistical reports on the web page visits and activities. What is more, an external analytics provider cannot use information about an individual for any other purposes, as the user is completely anonymous thanks to this solution.
