10. Cookies and other technologies

We want to make sure that you know how we use these technologies. Cookie statement explains the technologies we use, their functions and the choices regarding their use.

Upon visiting the Website, cookies may be created. Cookies are small text files that are stored on the hard drive of your computer and allow to recognize your repeated access, but do not allow to identify your identity. Cookies are used to offer you a website based on an alias and to facilitate your use of the website. Web beacons (or so-called tracking pixels) are used for the same purpose. Web beacons are small graphical elements that can be used on web pages that allow to record and analyze a log file for it to be used for statistical estimates.

You can usually prohibit the storage of cookies or set that you must agree to the configuration of cookies. You can manage this personally using your browser settings. Through these settings, you can also delete the downloaded cookies. Please note that the prohibition of the use of cookies is technically usually implemented by creating a deny cookie. Thus, another cookie is stored on your computer that prevents the transmission of relevant information to the website operator.

Web beacons (also called Clear Gifs or tracking pixels) often work with cookies. We and our service providers can use them for the same purposes as cookies, for example, to understand and improve the use of our service, improve website performance, track the number of visitors and the behavior of visitors on our website and understand the interaction with our advertising (including e-mail and online advertising on third-party sites). Because web beacons often work with cookies, refusing cookies can in many cases limit the effectiveness of web beacons.

We use other technologies similar to cookies, such as browser storage and plugins (e.g. HTML5, IndexedDB and WebSQL). Like cookies, some of these technologies can store small amounts of data on your device. We may use these and other technologies for purposes similar to cookies, for example, to ensure compliance with our terms of use, to prevent fraud and to analyze the use of our service. There are several ways to influence these technologies. For example, many popular browsers offer the option to clear browser memory. You can usually find this function in the settings; See the help or support section of your browser for more information.

11. Social networks

You can access the Website through areas or links with them, in which you can post public information, for example, communicate with other people through discussion forums or blogs, rate products and sellers, and post media content.
