WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are text files created by the website you visit and stored on your computer. When a user returns to the visited website, the browser retrieves the stored cookies and sends them to the server.

Cookies allow access to various website features to provide visitors with the best possible user experience. They also provide website operators with information about how certain visitors use certain content.

Taking into account and respecting the provision no. 229 of the Guarantor for the protection of personal data of May 8, 2014, SiMedia informs about cookies, their functions and possible deactivation of them.

In the following section, we list the macro categories of cookies, which differ in their characteristics and functions:

  1. We again divide technical cookies into three groups:
    a) Necessary cookies.
    This type of cookie allows you to navigate the site and use the main functions. These cookies are usually installed after a request on the website. For example, each registration can be seen as a request. These cookies are essential for the use of this website.
    b) Function cookies
    These types of cookies are used to recognize you when you return to our website. They allow us to provide a better experience on our website. For example, we may greet you by name, remember your language and/or region. These cookies only collect anonymous information and do not store your actions on this website on other websites.
    c) Performance cookies
    Analytics and performance cookies allow us to collect information about user behavior on the website. This gives us the ability to measure load time, behavior with different types of browsers and identify any errors. This helps us to optimize the functioning of the website. We also use analytical cookies from third-party providers to obtain information about the number of users and the number of websites visited (e.g. Google AdWords). Here we would like to refer to the guidelines of the respective provider.

    The use of necessary cookies, function cookies, performance cookies does not require your consent, as they are considered “technical cookies”. In any case, you can set your browser to disable these cookies at any time by using your browser settings below. If technical cookies are disabled, some functions of the website cannot be guaranteed.
  2. Navigation and usage cookies are used to ensure normal navigation and use of the website.
  3. Advertising and profiling cookies
    These types of cookies (advertising and re-targeting) store your visit to this website, they also store the other websites you visit and the links you click. We use this information to tailor advertising to your interests. Information of this type is used, among other things, to define the frequency of ads and to measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. To this end, this information may be shared with third parties (for example, advertisers).

The user is informed that the website also sends cookies from third-party providers. Third-party cookies may be installed directly by business partners with whom we have concluded agreements or by third parties with whom we only act as intermediaries and consequently conduct only indirect cooperation.

This website uses technical cookies. These types of cookies allow the user to navigate a website or to apply and use the various functions found there. For example, they offer the possibility of adapting the language of the website to your location.

A Google Analytics cookie is also used on this website. This cookie is used for statistical evaluations (collection of the number of visitors, recognition of the browser type, etc.). This cookie also only contains encrypted data and no personal information. If you still object to the storage of this cookie, you can download the corresponding browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics here:https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
