What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that is saved by the computer as soon as a website is visited by a user. The text saves information that the website is capable of reading as soon as it is opened for a second time. Some of these cookies are necessary in order for a website to function properly, while others may be useful to the user given that, for example, they are capable of securely saving the user’s name or their language settings. The advantage of having cookies installed on a personal computer is that it is no longer necessary to compile the same information every time a website visited previously is accessed.
According to the current terms of service, Google will use this information, in the capacity of independent data controller, in order to trace and examine the use of the website, compile reports on the activities of the website to be used by the operators of the website itself and providing other services concerning the activities of the website, the connection methods (laptop, PC, browser used, etc.) and methods of searching and opening pages on the website. Google can also transfer this information to others if this is required by law or if the others in question process the information on behalf of Google. Google will not associate the IP addresses to any other data in its possession.
