What kind of cookies are used on GET IT websites?
The service uses two types of cookies:
- session cookies;
- persistent cookies.
Session cookies are temporary files stored on the user’s device until logging out, leaving the website or closing the browser.
Persistent cookies are stored on the user’s device for a time period specified by the cookies’ parameters or until deleted by the user.
The service uses the following types of cookies:
- necessary — these allow for the use of services available within the service (e.g., authorising cookies used for services which require authorisation),
- efficiency-related — these allow for the collection of information about the manner in which the service websites are used,
- functional — these record the settings chosen by the user and allow for interface personalisation (e.g., language preference or the region the user comes from, font size, page appearance, etc.).
How can I change cookie settings?
Many web browsers permit storage of cookies on the user’s device by default. Service users can change cookie settings at any time. These settings can be changed, in particular, so as to block automatic cookie handling in browser settings or so that the user is informed about their placement on the device each time. Detailed information about the options and manners of handling cookies is available in browser settings.
