  1. the time an enquiry was sent,

  3. the name of the User’s station – identification through the HTTP protocol,
  4. information on mistakes that occurred during HTTP transaction realisation,
  5. the URL address of the site previously visited by the User (referrer link) – in case the User went to our page via a link on another webpage,
  6. information about the User’s internet browser.

This data is not associated with any specific users visiting website, with the proviso made in the section “Registered Users”. To ensure top quality of our service, we occasionally analyse log files to determine which websites are visited most often, to identify any possible mistakes on our site, etc.

Using the data

The collected log files are stored for an undetermined time as auxiliary material to administer the service. The information included in the files is not revealed to anyone except for the persons authorised to administer the server. The log files may be used to generate statistics that are helpful in administering the server. Collective summaries in the form of such statistics do not contain any information that could be used to identify visitors to the service.

Without storing them on the User’s device using our Bookshop is not possible;
  2. Files that ensure the safety of the transactions made within the service. Without those files, transactions are not safe;
  3. Statistical files enable us to collect statistical data on how Users use our Bookshop. Without storing those files, we can hardly adjust our offer and the service functionality to specific needs of our Clients;
  4. Functionality files – these files enable the service to remember the User’s settings and preferences. By storing those files on the User’s device, he or she does not have to log in and enter their password at each visit, products adjusted to his or her interests will be displayed, etc.;
  5. Advertisement files – these files enable receiving personalised ads. Ad files may be used by the Bookshop or associated advertising agencies. In this way, the User will only see ads adjusted to his or her interests. The number of views may be limited, etc. Those files also allow measuring ads effectiveness.
