This Policy refers to "cookies" and websites operated by PayU SA with the registered office in Poznań (hereinafter referred to as "websites").
What are "cookies"?
"Cookies" shall be understood as IT data, including without limitation text files, stored on users’ terminals with the purpose of using websites. These files make it possible to recognise a user’s terminal and display a website in a relevant way, adapted to user’s preferences. "Cookies" usually contain a website name they come from, time of being stored on the terminal and a unique number.
What are "cookies" used for?
"Cookies" are used for the purpose of adapting contents of websites to user’s preferences and optimising the use of websites. They are also used to prepare anonymous, aggregate statistics which help us understand how a user benefits from websites, which allows for improvement of their structure and contents, excluding user’s personal identification.
What "cookies" do we use?
We use two types of "cookies" – "session" and "fixed". The former ones are temporary files which remain on a user’s terminal until he logs out from a website or closes an application (a web browser). The "fixed" files remain on a user’s terminal for the time defined in cookie parameters or until they are deleted manually by the user.
"Cookies" used by partners of a website operator, including without limitation website users, are subject to their own privacy policies.
Do "cookies" contain personal data?
Personal data collected with the use of "cookies" may be collected only to perform certain functions for the user. Such data is encrypted in a way making it impossible for unauthorised persons to access it.
In general, an application used to browse through websites allows for saving cookies on a terminal by default. These settings may be changed so that automatic management of cookies is blocked in web browser settings or a user is informed each time cookies are sent to his terminal. Detailed information on the possibility and ways of dealing with cookies is available in application (web browser) settings.
Limitation of using cookies may affect some features available on a website.
