What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files stored by a visited website on the user’s device’s storage. Cookies serve different purposes and have various expiration dates.
Some cookies are called “session cookies” and expire after the user closes the web browser. Other cookies are called “persistent cookies” and are retained for a set period. Upon visiting a website repeatedly, the user’s web browser reads any retained persistent cookies and supplies the information back to the website or element that installed the cookie.
The cookies that we use fall into several categories.
“Essential cookies” enable important features, such as accessibility. Without them, the website may not function properly. Since essential cookies are necessary to deliver our services safely, you may not refuse them. If, regardless of security concerns, you decide you do not wish to receive essential cookies from us, you may block or delete them by changing your web browser settings.
Additionally, we use a specific functionality cookie that, when logging into the internet bank from a new device for the first time, allows you to enter your personal ID code only once. This cookie does not store your personal ID code on this device, but it allows us to remember that you have provided a valid one.
We also use third-party Adobe Analytics cookies. These are called “Statistical cookies” and they collect information that is used in aggregated form to help us understand how the visitors navigate and use our website. They help us to improve our websites in order to enhance your browsing experience. Statistical cookies are not related to personalized marketing offers.
In addition, we use “Marketing cookies”. Marketing cookies are used to display advertisements that are relevant to specific users, adapted to their interests. They can be used to track the effectiveness of advertising campaigns on third party websites. Many of these cookies will identify you using your IP address.
