  1. Information about user behavior on the website may be logged. This data is used for the purpose of administering the service.

7. Important marketing techniques

  1. The operator uses statistical analysis of website traffic through Google Analytics (Google Inc., based in the USA). The operator does not transfer any personal data to the operator of this service, only anonymized information. The service is based on the use of cookies on the user’s end device. In terms of user preference information collected by the Google advertising network, users can view and edit cookie-based information using the tool: https://www.google.com/ads/preferences/
  2. The operator uses remarketing techniques, allowing for tailored advertising messages based on the user’s behavior on the website, which may give the illusion that the user’s personal data is being used for tracking. However, in practice, no personal data is transferred from the operator to the advertising operators. The technological condition for such actions is the enabled support for cookie files.
  3. The operator uses the Facebook pixel. This technology allows the Facebook service (Facebook Inc., based in the USA) to know that a registered person is using the service. In this case, it is based on data for which the operator is the administrator. The operator does not provide any additional personal data to the Facebook service. The service is based on the use of cookies on the user’s end device.
  4. The operator employs a solution that examines user behavior by creating heatmaps and recording interactions on the website. These pieces of information are anonymized before being sent to the service operator, so they do not know which individual they pertain to. In particular, passwords and other personal data are not subject to recording.
  5. The operator applies a solution automating the functioning of the Service in relation to users, e.g. being able to send an email to the user after visiting a specific subpage, provided that they have given their consent to receive commercial correspondence from the operator.

8. Information about cookies
