This Cookie Policy was created for a website operated by either ESET spol. s r.o. or any of its subsidiaries or partners, each of which is a separate legal entity and will be referred to as "ESET" or "We" in this Cookie Policy. As We use so-called "cookies" and similar technologies on our websites, We would like to be transparent about their use so all visitors can make informed choices regarding their own devices.

What are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files that may be placed in your browser when you visit a website and then read if you visit the site again. Such information stored in cookies may be about you, your device or preferences, and they usually do not identify you directly. Some cookies are necessary so a website or a particular service can work properly and have an appropriate level of security. Some might be used for other purposes, e.g. for website personalization, analysis of website traffic or for advertising of products or services online. We categorized all cookies we use based on their purpose, as detailed in the "Categories of Cookies We Use" section. In the “Cookies used by this website” section, we list individual cookies used by this website and provide more specific information on them, including what they are used for and their expiry.

 

Types of Cookies

In the following sections, We distinguish between "first-party cookies" or cookies that are set by ESET and "third-party cookies" that are set by ESET´s partners. Our partners are third parties who provide us with certain services for our website, usually analytical or marketing services. Moreover, We also distinguish between "session" cookies that are stored only for the duration of your browser session on our website and "persistent" cookies, that are stored for a longer time period as indicated below and therefore can be read even if you decide to visit our website again.
