What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that is stored in the user´s web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox) on their computer (or other internet device, e.g. smartphone or tablet). This file enables the visitor to access the customised content every time they revisit a website. Information from cookies is accessible only to the website (or web server) of the company that created them and to no one else. A cookie is only a passive file; it does not contain any software programs that could run on the user´s device with an Internet access (computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.).
Every browser offers tools to customize cookie settings. Most browsers are preset to enable saving cookies on all web servers (sites). There are several ways, in which the cookies may be processed: the user must accept or decline each cookie file before it is saved on the computer; the user specifies the behaviour of cookie files on specific websites (e.g.favourites); the user completely prohibits cookies from being saved on the computer. For further information as to where to find cookie settings in your browser visit the help pages of your browser provider. Cookies, either all of them or just the specified ones, may be removed in every browser. However, it they are removed or the browser is set to decline them, the users of the www.sheron.sk will not be able to make full use of the website, since most of our services do rely on the cookie files.
