The generally available parts of the Website do not use any cookies or similar technologies except for “session storage”. Please see below for more information on session storage.
A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.
We use the following cookies:
- Analytical/performance cookies. They allow us to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the Website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way the Website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. We will use Google Analytics which has some cookies that range in life from 10 minutes to 2 years, including: https://developers.google.com/analytics/devguides/collection/analyticsjs/cookie-usage.
- Local storage is used to store encoded, secure tokens, unique for each user. Tokens are removed from local storage on each “log out” action, and will expire after 7 days from “log in” action if no “log out” action was taken
- Session storage is used to keep non personal data only. It is used only to ensure proper working of frontend application and users cannot be identified by those data. Session storage data are constantly created and removed only if needed. Session storage data is also auto removed on browser close.
