Cookie statement

We use “cookies” (hereinafter “cookies”) on our website. These are files that store information on your web browser. This requires your consent.

“Cookies” are defined in Act C of 2003 on electronic communications, Act CVIII of 2001 on certain issues of electronic commercial services and services related to the information society. act and we use it in accordance with the regulations of the European Union.

Websites that operate within the countries of the European Union must request the users’ consent to use “cookies” and to store them on the user’s computer or other device.

  1. Rules for the Use of “Cookies”.

This policy applies to domain name website “cookies”.

  1. What Are “Cookies”?

“Cookies” are small files that contain letters and numbers. A “cookie” is a means of exchanging information between the web server and the user’s browser. These data files are non-executable, free of spyware and viruses, and cannot access the contents of users’ hard drives.

  1. What are “Cookies” used for?

With the help of information sent by “cookies”, Internet browsers can be recognized more easily, so that users receive relevant and “personalized” content. Cookies make browsing more convenient, including requests related to online data security and relevant advertising. With the help of “cookies”, website operators can create anonymous statistics about the habits of website visitors. By using these, the editors of the site can customize the look and content of the site even more.

  1. What “Cookies” Can You Meet?

Websites can use two types of cookies:

  • Temporary “cookies” that remain on your device until you leave the website.
  • Permanent “cookies”, which, depending on the settings of your web browser, remain on your device for a longer time or until you delete them.
  • Third-party “cookies” placed in your browser by a third party (e.g. Google Analytics). These are placed in your browser if the visited website uses services provided by third parties.

Indispensable Session (Session-Id) “Cookies”:

Their use is essential for navigating the website and for the functionality of the website’s functions. Without accepting them, the website or some of its parts may not be displayed or displayed incorrectly.

Analytical or Performance Monitoring “Cookies”:

These help us distinguish between website visitors and collect data about how visitors behave on the website. With these “cookies”, we ensure, for example, that the website remembers your login in the cases you request. They do not collect information that can identify you, the data is aggregated and stored anonymously. (eg: Google Analytics)

Functional “Cookies”:

The purpose of these cookies is to improve the user experience. They detect and store, for example, the device with which you opened the website, or the data you previously provided and requested to be stored: for example, automatic login, user changes made by you in the selected language, text size, font or other customizable elements of the website. These “cookies” do not track your activities on other websites. However, the information they collect may include personally identifiable information that you have shared.

Targeted or Advertising “Cookies”:

With the help of these websites, they can provide information (marketing) that best suits your interests. This requires your express consent. These cookies collect detailed information about your browsing habits.

  1. Do “Cookies” contain Personal Data?

Most “cookies” do not contain personal information and cannot be used to identify users. The stored data is necessary for more convenient browsing, and is stored in such a way that unauthorized persons cannot access it.

  1. Why are “cookies” important on the Internet?

The role of “cookies” is to make browsing more convenient for users, as it adjusts advertisements and content for users through browsing history. Disabling or restricting “cookies” will render some websites unusable. However, disabled or limited “cookies” do not mean that users will not be shown ads, only that the ads and content that appear are not “personalized”, i.e. they are not adjusted to the user’s needs and interests. Some examples of the use of “cookies”:

  • Displaying content, services and products tailored to the user’s needs.
  • Offers tailored to the user’s interests.
  • In the case you requested, note the login (stay logged in).
  • Comment on child protection filters for Internet content (family mode options, safe search functions).
  • Limiting the frequency of advertisements; i.e. numerical limitation of the display of an advertisement on a given website for the user.
  • Displaying advertisements relevant to the user.
  • Geotargeting
  1. Factors Related to Security and Data Security.

“Cookies” are not viruses or spyware. Since they are plain text files, they cannot be run, so they cannot be considered programs. However, they may hide information in the “cookie” with other intentions (maliciousness), so they can act as spyware. For this reason, anti-virus and anti-virus programs may permanently delete “cookies”.

Since the device used for Internet browsing and the web servers communicate continuously, so they send data back and forth, therefore if an attacker (hacker) intervenes in the process, he can extract the information stored by the “cookies”. One reason for this could be, for example, an improperly encrypted Internet (WiFi) setting. Using this gap, they can extract data from the “cookies”.

  1. Handling and Deleting “Cookies”.

“Cookies” can be deleted or disabled in the browser programs used. Browsers allow the placement of “cookies” by default. This can be disabled in the browser settings, as well as the existing ones can be deleted. In addition, the browser can be set to notify the user when a “cookie” is sent to the device. It is important to emphasize, however, that blocking or restricting these files impairs the browsing experience, and errors may also occur in the functionality of the website.

  • The setting options are usually found in the “Options” or “Settings” menu of the browser. Each web browser is different, so please use the appropriate settings. use the “Help” menu of your browser or the links below to change cookie settings:

  • To disable the anonymous Google Analytics “cookies”, you can install a so-called “Google Analytics plug-in” (supplement) in your browser, which prevents the website from sending information about you to Google Analytics. You can find more information about this at the following links:
