Some cookies are only stored until the browser is closed (the so-called session cookies), and some are stored for a long period of time (the so-called persistent cookies). If you do not want cookies to be stored on your computer, you can change the settings in the browser. However, please note that in some cases this may lead to incorrect operation of some functions of our website and incorrect display of some materials.

This website uses cookies for a number of reasons, including providing a personal touch, improving website usability and collecting usage statistics. We also use session cookies to enhance the security of this website.

In some cases, when using cookies, we transfer data to third parties. For example, we use the Google Analytics and Google AdWords services, which transfer website traffic data to Google’s servers. Google Analytics does not identify individual users and doesn’t associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. We use the reports provided by Google to analyze website traffic, understand the use of web pages and optimize advertisement purchased on the Google advertising network and other advertising networks. Google may process data in accordance with Google Confidentiality Policy (https://policies.google.com/privacy) for the purposes described above in this section.

Our website also uses the Pixel Facebook tool, which collects depersonalized aggregated data, helping us optimize the purchase of advertisements on various Facebook platforms (including Instagram). Facebook collects user identifiers that help determine whether a user has visited a site with a Facebook pixel. However, we, as advertisers, cannot identify a specific user who performs an action. Facebook and its related platforms are located in a closed advertising ecosystem in which users may or may not agree that advertisers will use the data collected on their sites to purchase ads on Facebook.

Such policies also define our standards when making contracts with suppliers or introducing new IT systems in the course of our business.
