8. Cookies

Cookies are short fragments of text which are stored in the browser on the user’s computer by the operator of a website when the user goes on the website. Cookies may also be stored on the user’s computer by service providers other than the operator of the website visited. These are known as third-party cookies.

a. Personal identification

Cookies may contain any information, such as the user’s preferred language or other personal website settings, registration information, ID numbers, real names, postal addresses or e-mail addresses. Such information generally meets the criteria for classification as personal data in accordance with Article 4 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

b. Intended use

Each time a user visits a given website, his or her computer sends cookie information to a third party provider’s website server. The identification features stored in the cookies make the user re-identifiable to the third-party service provider, enabling the creation of user behaviour profiles.

A practical example: If Facebook’s “Like” or “Share” functions are used on a website, these create a “third-party cookie” (i.e. Facebook’s cookie) on the website as part of the so-called “social plugins”. In principle, the same applies to similar offers from other companies or, for example, to the use of pop-up windows with news, stock market quotes, weather forecasts or advertising banners, etc.

c. Types of cookies

Strictly necessary: these cookies are necessary in order to navigate the website and use its functions. Without them, the requested information and menus cannot be displayed.

Analytical: these cookies collect information on how users use a website, for example which pages they visit most often. This does not involve storing any information that can be used to identify a visitor. All the information collected by these cookies is aggregated and, therefore, anonymous. These files are only used to improve the functioning of the website.

Functional: with the help of these cookies, the website can remember your decisions and provide you with extended, personalised functionalities. For example, these cookies can be used to save changes to font size, font type and language. They can also be used to share the services you want, for example, to play videos or to comment on a blog. The information collected by these cookies can be made anonymous; the cookies cannot tell which other websites you have visited.

d. Benefits

Third-party service providers can recreate the visits of users who allow themselves to be identified, combine them across servers and thus follow the user’s activity. This is known as tracking. Cookies also facilitate the use of websites by allowing servers to re-identify the user’s preferences. Cookies, for example, make it possible to create shopping carts in online stores. If your connection to the server is interrupted, cookies allow you to resume your visit to the website at the point where the connection was broken. Therefore, without cookies, the use of websites is often limited, very inconvenient or virtually impossible.

e. Intervention

The use of the solutions we offer is also possible without cookies. You can refuse the use of cookies in your browser, limit the use of cookies to specific websites or set your browser to notify you when a cookie is sent. You can also delete cookies from your computer’s hard drive at any time. Please note, however, that in such a case you may have to allow for limited presentation of the website and limited user guidance. In some instances, our streaming and webcast transmissions may no longer work properly.

Most browsers allow some degree of control over most cookies in their settings.

9. Use of the data collected in accordance with item 3 for marketing purposes

As part of our marketing activities, we only use the data that you have provided us with for the purpose of sending your a publication or our newsletter. All data collected on this website is analysed on an anonymous basis.

10. Tracking with Google Analytics

It is important to us that our websites are designed in the most optimal way and thus are attractive to visitors. For this purpose, it is necessary for us to know how much interest the individual parts of our websites generate among visitors.

To this end, our website uses Google Analytics, a website analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

Google Analytics also uses cookies; the information generated by cookies about your visit to this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

IP anonymisation has been activated on our website and Google will previously abbreviate your IP address within the Member States of the European Union or other states within the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address is transferred to a Google server in the USA and is abbreviated there.

On our behalf, Google will use such information to evaluate your usage of the website, to create reports on website activities and to provide other services related to website and Internet usage to us as the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be combined with any other data held by Google.

By using appropriate settings you can prevent the storage of cookies in your browser; in this case, however, we would like to point out that you will not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent.

It is also possible to prevent the storage of data generated by the cookie and related to your usage of the website (including your IP address) by Google as well as the processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following address: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=pl

You can access Google’s privacy statement at the following address: https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites?hl=pl

Social Media plugins

We currently do not use any Social Media plugins.

11. Inclusion of service providers and transfer to third parties

For the purposes of developing this website and for the aforementioned purposes, your data may be transferred to technical support service providers (e.g. web hosting, website management, quality assurance or mailing services), who are, of course, carefully selected by us and act on our written instructions.

These service providers are bound by our instructions and regularly audited by us.

Otherwise, your data will only be transferred to other third parties if this is expressly stated in this Personal Data Protection Statement or if we are legally obliged to do so.

12. Data security

In addition, we take technical and organisational security measures to protect the personal data created or collected by us, in particular against accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction or attack by unauthorised persons. As technology advances, our security measures are being constantly improved.

In order to block access by unauthorised third parties, your personal data is also encrypted using SSL/TLS technology.
