Cookies are pieces of text information, usually tiny in size. Their main purpose is to collect, store and share the information about the user's navigation on websites.
Cookies contain important information, including:
- individual settings;
- user’s interests;
- visit statistics etc.
When you visit a particular website, your browser sends a cookie to the resource server to identify the user.
HOW DO COOKIES WORK?
Once you enter the domain, the request is sent to the server where the website is hosted. The server, in turn, gives a link to a web page, which fully complies with the request. The answer consists of a certain cookie taking its place on the hard drive.
WHAT TYPES OF COOKIES ARE USED?
Our online store uses two types of cookies:
- temporary session files;
- permanent cookies.
Temporary cookies identify a single visit to the website by the user. These files are deleted a few minutes after the user closes its web browser. The next time the user visits the same website, it will be treated as a completely new one. Permanent cookies are the files saved on a drive for a long time (until they are deleted by the user or until they expire).
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF COOKIES AND DO I NEED TO DELETE THEM?
- Secure login;
- Show of relevant ads;
- Optimized and improved performance of the website;
- Identification and deletion of spam.
Cookies gives us an indication of what is interesting to the user and what is, probably, not. This way, some work is done to ensure that the website has always been relevant and interesting for all users.
In some cases, cookies help to circumvent such intrusive procedures as filling out forms or permanent password for login. Cookies help identify the preferred language and the user's geolocation.
They allow testing different versions of services in order to know exactly what features are preferred by users, at what time and how often they interact with certain services.
NB! We do not share the information received from cookies with unauthorized persons, save for our service providers.
Some browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can also amend the settings in order to decline cookies. To do this, go to the help page of your browser.
There is a misconception that cookies are not safe for the user’s system, but it is not the case; cookies are not malicious programs but rather small text files performing specific functions.
If you decide to disable cookies in your web browser, you should bear in mind that it will limit your ability to use many of our online store services.
