What are cookies?
Cookies are information files, including unlimited text content, which are stored on the Users’ computers in order to improve the work with the respective Website. These files allow Users to be recognized and the Website to be adapted to their preferences. Cookies usually contain the name of the website to which they belong to, the time they are stored on the User’s computer and a unique identifier.
What cookies are used and for what purpose?
The Supplier, through its Website www.rightpack.eu, uses the following types of cookies:
“Session cookies” – temporary files that are generated on the Users’ computer until they exit the Website or close the application they are using (web browser).
“Persistent cookies” – fixed files that remain on the Users’ computer for the time specified in the cookie parameters or until they are manually deleted by the Users. The cookies used by the Supplier are configured by the Website itself when it is visited by the Users and they can only be read by it. Persistent cookies are used when the Website operator needs to know who the User is during more than one browsing session /for example, to remember a username or Website customization preferences/.
First Party Cookies – Cookies placed on Users’ browser and/or hard drive by the actual website they visit. This includes assigning a unique identity in order to track the movement of Users on the Website. Website operators often use first-party cookies for session management and recognition purposes.
Third-party cookies – cookies used by third parties, for example Google Analytics, to track Users’ visits to various sites. The Website operator has no control over third-party cookies.
Google Analytics is a tool of Google Inc., thanks to which the Supplier receives statistics about the visits to its website, and the Users – only relevant advertisements. The information that the Supplier receives is not sufficient to identify the respective User as a natural person, but based on its collection, it is still possible to be personally identified by Google Inc. The information is kept for 26 months, after which it is automatically deleted.
If Users wish to opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics globally from all sites, they can do so via the link provided – https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. They should keep in mind, however, that this will not stop the ads they see, it will only make them more irrelevant.
The personal information that is accumulated through the cookies can only be used to perform certain operations for the Users. Such information is encrypted in a way that makes access to it by unauthorized individuals impossible.
