4. Cookies

Cookies are miniature files stored on a computer or a mobile device when we visit a website. Cookies allow the site to “remember” activities or visitor settings from previous visits so that they can automatically apply them on the next visit. This way, the website already “knows” that you’ve been here and in some cases adjusts what you see on the screen. Cookies are most commonly used to remember specific user preferences, to help with entering information that has already been done during previous visits, to collect analytical data, or for promotional campaigns.

Cookies can be divided into session and persistent cookies. Session cookies are temporarily stored on your computer and are automatically deleted after closing a web browser. They are used to get temporary information such as the status of your shopping cart in a webshop.

Persistent cookies remain stored on your computer even after you close your web browser, but most often have an expiration date. Such cookies are used to facilitate access to registered users and store information such as username and password, which allows you to log in using a “remember me” functionality, so you do not have to re-enter your username and password every time you visit the website. Persistent cookies may be stored on your computer for days, months, and even years.

Cookies are also divided into first- and third-party cookies. First-party cookies come from the website you are currently on, while third-party cookies come through ads or external services from other websites, such as Google Analytics or AdWords. These cookies are most often used to help interpret user behaviour or are used for marketing purposes. Cogsteps uses third-party cookies to obtain statistical information on visitors and the way in which Coolinarika is used. Data collected includes user IP address, browser data, language, operating system, and other standard statistical data collected and analysed solely in anonymous and mass form.

But how do cookies actually work?

Cookies store information in the form of “key-value” pairs within text files.

For example, cookies can store the language in which you are currently viewing the page. If it is the Croatian language, the record will most often look like this: language=hr

When you first select a language, a website will create and save the cookie containing language information via your browser. Then, on every subsequent visit, if that cookie still exists, the page will know about your selection and will show you the content in your preferred language.

When accessing a website, Cogsteps cookies identify browser parameters, but not the users themselves. In short, the purpose of cookies is good-natured because they provide a better user experience when browsing. They are not harmful and cannot contain viruses.

Since the purpose of cookies is to improve and enable a better user experience of our website and its processes in the full range of their functionality, please note that by preventing or deleting them, you can disable the functionality of website features or cause a different look and feel of the website in your browser.

5. Statistics

The website Cogsteps monitors statistical page views solely for the purpose of obtaining necessary information on the attractiveness and effectiveness of its websites and uses a third-party service called Google Analytics. Detailed third-party information about this service, and the user’s ability to regulate cookie settings that are necessary for it, are available at: http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html.

In order to provide you with a better user experience and to efficiently plan future marketing campaigns and the publication of content that is adapted to your interests, we use the Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting tool that collects information on user gender, age, and interests.

6. Links

We do everything we can to ensure that all redirections from our websites guide you and/or your child to websites of high-quality content in the sense that it does not encourage negativity. However, websites and web addresses change rapidly and we cannot always warrant for the content of every address that we redirect you to.

7. Changes and termination of validity

Cogsteps reserves the right to modify or terminate all or any part of this website and the Terms of use at any time. Changes come into effect by posting at this address or when users are notified of them. Terms of use apply until their termination by you or by Cogsteps. Your termination, which is possible at any time, means the termination of the use of the website and the cancellation of all material and content downloaded and used from the website.
