2. How do cookies function?

Http protocol is a protocol, through which a web server communicates, on which the web pages are stored with your browser.

The HTTPS protocol is a version of http protocol that uses encrypted communication.

As a cookie, a small amount of data is identified in the http/https protocol that the web server sends to the browser, and it then stores it on your computer, tablet, or other device from which you access the web. Each time the browser visits the same server, the browser sends the data back to the web server.

Cookies are commonly used to distinguish individual users (more precisely their browsers), store user preferences, etc. They also help the server to know the status of the site and to return to the previous page. Cookies can also be set on the server side.

Cookies as such do not represent an executable code and are not dangerous to your computer, but may represent a means of interfering with your privacy. The web site you visit may store any information in cookies it may find out about you on the website during your browsing, it may monitor what you are interested in, on which pages you have stayed longer, it may retain your entire web path. Cookies contain information on how long they are to be stored. Some are one-time/temporary, and their validity ends with closing your browser or logging out of websites, others may have a lifespan of months or years, and you are recognised in re-visiting the site. In the event that your computer is infected, the cookie attacker may obtain your personal information and may in certain cases prove your identity to the web site you are visiting.

Web site operators are legally required to keep visitors to the site informed about the use of cookies, which we are doing with this text.

From the point of view of the legislation (GDPR), cookies are used to identify users or devices that the user uses by personal data, and as such, the site operator is required to protect and process them only if the legal conditions are met.

The purpose of cookies. Because http protocol is unstable, some cookies may be required for normal website functionality. Others serve to improve the features and personalisation of content, others can track your preferences, store information that is pre-filled in forms, allow you to track your movement on the internet or on the given website.

Cookies’ source. Some cookies may belong to site operators and only work with the domain where you are currently browsing the website. But the operator of these sites may allow third parties to store cookies that provide information to that third party (typically cookies for Google Analytics) on their site.

Web signals are electronic images (also referred to as one-pixel GIF images) that can help count users who visit these sites and count or monitor some of their activities. They can also form a part of promotional emails or newsletters to see if they have been read and if any links have been used.
 

3. Legal conditions for using cookies

  • The operator is obliged to inform in a clear manner about the use of cookies and web signals (hereinafter referred to as cookies).
  • The operator is required to obtain consent to use cookies before they are stored on the user’s computer or before the cookie information is sent to the server (see Act No. 468/2011 Coll., on Electronic Communications or Directive 2009/136/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council). This consent may be expressed by browser settings.
  • However, the consent is not required for cookies that are only used to ensure that the site is functioning properly, is optimised, or if they are necessary to enable the provider to provide services explicitly requested by the user or analytical services.
  • You have the right to know how the cookie data will be used.
  • You should always be able to disable or reject tracking cookies, which you can do through the settings on your browser. The result is smaller (sometimes significantly smaller) comfort when you browse the web site.
  • You have the right to request the data controller (the site operator or the person who obtains the cookie data on your computer) to delete or correct the data if you find that it does not match the facts.

 

4. How to ban third party cookies

If you do not want to enable third-party cookies, you can prevent the saving thereof on your computer by setting up the browser you are using. You can set it up to both enable third-party cookies, and also set the “Do NOT Track” feature that sends the web site you are accessing a signal that you do not want to be tracked (sending this request alone does not ensure it is respected by the server). You can create a list of third parties whose access to your computer will be blocked.
