What are cookies?
A cookie is a small file consisting of letters and numbers that the computer with the website sends to your computer or mobile phone (hereinafter referred to as the "device") through the browser and stores it on the hard drive of your device. Cookies allow us to distinguish you from other users of our website. Thanks to them, we can offer you better experiences when browsing our website and constantly improve our services.
Each website can send its own cookies to your browser if your browser settings allow it. However, your browser (to protect your privacy) allows websites to access only those cookies that those websites have sent to your device themselves, not cookies sent by other websites. Many websites do this every time a user visits them. They can thus monitor online traffic better.
Types of cookies:
"Temporary" (session) cookies: these cookies remain in your browser only for the duration of the session, i.e. until you leave the website.
"Persistent" cookies: these cookies remain in your browser even after the end of the session (unless you delete them). The standard period of validity of the permanent cookies we use does not exceed 12 months (unless the supplier of the relevant technology allows a shorter period of validity).
Category of cookies:

"Analytical" cookies: These cookies allow us to collect analytical data in order to improve the performance and functionality of our site. This analytics data may include measures of page popularity, common ways people move around the page and how often certain features are used. We usually aggregate data for revision purposes, but in certain cases we may collect information about the content you have visited in order to understand what you are most interested in. This information contains aggregate data about users, but not individuals.
"Marketing" (marketing) cookies: PwC may place advertisements on sites not owned or operated by PwC to promote PwC services, articles and events. These cookies are used to make advertising messages relevant to you and your interests. They also perform functions such as preventing ads from being constantly re-displayed. These advertisements serve only to inform you of relevant PwC promotions.
We do not sell your data to any third party.
However, all modern browsers allow you to change cookie settings. You can set your devices to accept all cookies, to notify you when a cookie is issued, or to never accept cookies. If you choose the latter option, it means that certain personalized features cannot be offered to you and therefore you will not be able to take full advantage of all the features of the respective websites.
