Cookies, also known as cookies, in Polish are small text files sent by a web server and saved on the user’s side. Cookies allow you to read the information they contain only to the server that created them. Cookies contain various information about the user of a given website and the history of their connection with the website. This information allows the server owner who sent the cookies to find out which pages the user was visiting before entering his website, to know his IP address, as well as to check whether there were no errors during the display of the website. It should be noted, however, that these data are not associated with individual visitors, but only with the computer connected to the Internet on which the cookies were stored.

These cookies are used to store information, such as when you started your current visit and whether you have visited the site before and from which website you came to the current website.

Google Analytics uses the following types of cookies on its blog, which are permanent files, with the exception of the “__utmc” cookie, which is a temporary file.

This helps to monitor and check its performance. This entity may be, among others, Google, which collects data needed by Altkom Software & Consulting Ltd.

The user can set the browser so that cookies are not stored on the hard drive or are automatically deleted at a certain time.
