Use of cookies

A cookie is a small, often encoded file sent by a server to a browser and then sent back unchanged by the browser each time it accesses that server.

A cookie consists of 2 parts: the name and the content or value of the cookie. Its role is to help the application (website) function within normal parameters.

Cookies are widely used to allow the website to function or operate more efficiently, as well as to provide information to website owners about what is happening on their website.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us to analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.

Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website by allowing us to track which pages you find useful and which you don't. A cookie in no way allows us to access your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share. By accessing our site, you agree to our use of cookies on your system. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This will prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

Types of cookies used

We use two types of cookies: session and fixed.

Session cookies are proprietary cookies for the purpose of authenticating registered users.

Fixed cookies are temporary files that remain on the user's terminal until the session ends or the application (web browser) is closed. Fixed files remain on the user's terminal for a period of time within the parameters of the cookie or until manually deleted by the user. This also includes third-party cookies that we use through Google Analytics and Yandex Metrica to perform statistics on the use of the eData platform, as well as the following sources:

  • Yellow pages - to know if the visitor has previously visited yellow pages.
  • http_referer - to know which site the visitor came from.
  • Member_Token - used to detect multiple logins from multiple devices.
  • Member_Authenticator - to perform authentication of registered users.
  • rfd - to be able to subscribe to a folder.
  • rfs - modal display with PDF report information.
  • namm - modal display with information about monitoring a file.
  • (Google) _ga - visitor analytics to improve the online experience.Using Google Analytics software, we collect anonymous data about visits to our site, such as page views.
  • Hotjar - used behind the account for analytics to improve the online experience. Using Hotjar software, we collect anonymous data about visits to our site, such as page views.
Cookies and personal data

Cookies themselves do not require personal information in order to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify Internet users. Personal data collected through the use of cookies may only be collected to facilitate certain functionalities for the user. This data is encrypted in a way that makes it impossible for unauthorized persons to access it.

Changing cookie settings

Most web browsers allow you to control most cookies through browser settings. To learn more about cookies, including how to see which cookies have been set, visit www.aboutcookies.org orwww.allaboutcookies.org.

Deleting cookies

In general, an application used to access web pages allows cookies to be saved on the terminal by default. These settings can be changed in such a way that the automatic management of cookies is blocked by the web browser or the user is informed each time cookies are sent to his/her terminal. Detailed information about the possibilities and modes of cookie management can be found in the settings area of the application (web browser).

Limiting the use of cookies may affect certain functionality of the website.

Importance of cookies for the internet

Cookies are at the heart of the efficient functioning of the Internet, helping to generate a user-friendly browsing experience tailored to each user's preferences and interests. Refusing or disabling cookies may make some sites unusable. Refusing or disabling cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising - it just means that it will no longer be able to take into account your preferences and interests as evidenced by your browsing behaviour. Examples of important uses of cookies (which do not require a user to log in via an account):

  • Content and services tailored to user preferences - product and service categories;
  • Offers tailored to users' interests - password retention/child protection filters on Internet content (family mode options, safe search functions);
  • Limiting the frequency of ads - limiting the number of times an ad is shown to a given user on a site;
  • Providing more relevant content for the user;
  • Measuring, optimizing and analytics features - such as confirming a certain level of traffic to a website, what type of content is being viewed and how a user gets to a website (e.g. via search engines, directly, from other websites etc). Websites run these usage analytics to improve their sites for the benefit of users.
Security and privacy issues

Cookies are NOT viruses. They use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code so they cannot be executed or run themselves. Consequently, they cannot be duplicated or replicated on other networks to run or replicate themselves again. Since they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses. Cookies can however be used for negative purposes. Because they store information about users' preferences and browsing history, both on a particular site and on several other sites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this fact and consistently flag cookies for deletion as part of anti-virus/anti-spyware deletion/scanning procedures.

Browsers generally have built-in privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, validity period and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular site.
