What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that the websites being visited store in the memory of the user’s device.
Cookies are used for different purposes and have different retention periods.
Some cookies are called ‘session cookies’ and expire as soon as the user closes their web browser. ‘Persistent cookies’, however, are retained in the device for a certain period of time. When repeatedly visiting a website, the web browser of the user reads the persistent cookie information stored in the device and sends the corresponding information back to the website or the element that set the cookie.
We use several different types of cookies.
“Essential cookies” are needed to provide important features, such as accessibility. Without them, the website may not work properly. Because essential cookies are needed to provide our services, you cannot turn them off. However, if you decide for security reasons that you do not wish to receive cookies from us, you can block or delete them by changing your browser settings.
We also use a special function cookie, thanks to which you only need to enter your username when logging in to the Internet Bank from a new device only once. This cookie does not store your username on the device, but helps you remember that you have already entered a valid username.
We also use third-party cookies – Adobe Analytics. These are called ‘‘statistics cookies’ and they collect information that we use in the form of aggregated data to better understand how users navigate on and use our website. These cookies help us improve our websites to make them more convenient for you to use. Statistics cookies are not associated with personal marketing offers.
In addition, we use marketing cookies. Marketing cookies are used to show ads that are timely and relevant to the interests of a particular user. They can be used to monitor the effectiveness of advertising campaigns on third-party websites. Many of these cookies identify you by your IP address.
