The online service can use cookie files, that is, information written by servers on the user’s end device, which the servers are able to read each time this end device accesses the content.
Cookie files are IT data, in particular text files, which are stored on the Service User’s end device and are intended to be present when using the Service websites. A cookie file most often contains the name of the website it comes form, the time for which it is stored on the end device, and a unique number.
The operator of the Service in which cookie files can be used is Stowarzyszenie Instytut Kościuszki with its seat in Kraków, ul. Wilhelma Feldmana 4/9-10, 31-130 Kraków.
Cookie files might be used to:
  • tailor the content of the Service websites to User preferences and optimise website use; in particular, these files allow the Service to recognise the User’s device and to appropriately display the website adjusted to suit their individual needs;
  • create statistics which help understand in what way the Service Users avail themselves of websites, which makes it possible to improve their structure and content;
  • retain a Service User’s session (after logging in), thank to which the User needs not enter the login and password again on each Service subpage;
  • provide the Service User with advertising content that is better tailored to their interests.
As part of the Service, the following types of cookie files are in use:
  • “strictly necessary” cookie files, making it possible to use the services available on its pages, e.g. authentication cookie files used for services that require autenthication within the Service;
  • security-related cookie files, e.g. the ones used to detect abuse in terms of in-Service authentication;
  • “performance” cookie files, making it possible to gather information on how the Service websites are used;
  • “functional” cookie files, making it possible to “remember” the settings the User has chosen and to customise the User interface, e.g. with regard to the language selected or the region the User comes from, the font size, the website look and feel, etc.;
  • “advertising” cookie files, making it possible to provide the User with advertising content that is better tailored to their interests.
In many cases the software designed to browse WWW sites (internet browser) allows cookie files to be stored on the User’s end device by default. The Service Users can change the cookie settings at any time. The settings can be changed in such a way, in particular, that the automatic cookie file handling in the internet browser is blocked or that each time their appearance on the Service User’s device results in a notification. Detailed information on ways and capabilities of cookie file handling are available in software (internet browser) settings.
The Service operator informs you that restrictions on cookie file use may impact some functionalities available on Service websites.
On the Service User end device, cookie files can also be placed and used by advertisers that cooperate with the Service operator and by its partners.
