Cookies perform a lot of functions on the website; most of them are useful and we will try to describe them below (if the information is insufficient, please contact us):

They also allow to identify errors displayed on some subpages. Cookies used to record the so-called “session state” help to improve the quality of the services and increase the comfort of browsing;
- maintaining session status – if a client logs in to his panel, the cookies sustain the session. This means that after switching to another subpage, you do not have to re-enter your login and password; this contributes to the comfort of using the website;
- creating statistics – cookies are used to analyze how the visitors use the website (how many of them enter the website, how long they stay there, which content arouses the most interest, etc.). In the result, we can constantly improve the website and adapt its operation to the preferences of the users. In order to track the activity and create statistics, we use Google tools such as Google Analytics; in addition to reporting the website usage statistics, the pixel Google Analytics can also contribute, along with some of the cookies described above, to displaying more relevant content to the user in Google services (such as the Google search engine) and across the entire web;
