Cookies Policy

It is common practice on almost all professionally designed websites to use cookies. Cookies are small files that are downloaded to a computer and serve to optimize the user’s visit in the site. Each time a user using the site reloads it, the browser sends the cookie to the server. This action, invisible to the user, informs the site of previous user activity. This is the key role of cookies to improve the customer experience and to facilitate the use of the site by the end customer. If the customer deactivates the cookies, he loses the opportunity to take advantage of all the functionality of the site. This policy explains what information is collected, how it is used and why cookies are sometimes required to be stored. This policy also concerning options for preventing the retention of these cookies. However, as noted above, this can lead to downgrading or “breaking” of some elements of the functionality of the sites.

The reasons for using cookies are described below in the policy. Unfortunately, in most cases, there are no standard options for disabling cookies without completely disabling the functionality and features they add to the site. If the user is not sure whether he needs cookies or not, it is recommended that they be left active. 

Deactivation of the cookies.

 You can prevent the setting of cookies by adjusting the settings in the browser (see how to do this here). It should be kept in mind that deactivation of the cookies will affect the functionality of the site to which they apply and also affects many other websites that are used. Disabling cookies usually also disables certain features and capabilities of the site. Therefore, it is recommended that cookies not be deactivated.

  • Account-related cookies.

When creating an account on our portal, we will use cookies to manage the registration process and general administration. These cookies are usually deleted when you log out, but in some cases may remain after that to remember the user’s preferences for the site. 

  • Login-related cookies.

We use cookies when the user is in their account so that we can remember this. This protects him from having to “log in” every time he visits a new page. These cookies are usually removed or cleared when the user logs out of their account to ensure that they will only have access to restricted features and zones when they have logged in to their account. 

  • research-related cookies

Periodically, SoCyber offers user surveys and questionnaires to understand user settings in order to improve the site. These surveys may use cookies to remember who has already participated in a survey or to provide the user with accurate results.

In some special cases, cookies provided by trusted third parties are also used. The following lines detail what third-party cookies you may find on the SoCyber website.

  • From time to time new features are tested on the site and fine changes are made to the way the site is presented. When new features are still being tested, cookies can be used to provide the visitor with a consistent service, while ensuring that SoCyber is aware of which optimizations visitors value the most. 
  • We use advertisements to balance the costs of managing the site and to provide funding for its further development. The behavioral advertising cookies used by this site are designed to ensure that, where possible, SoCyber provides the most relevant ads by anonymously tracking users’ interests and presenting similar things that they may be interested in. 
  • Some partners advertise on behalf of SoCyber, and cookies are tracked in partnership. This allows SoCyber to find out if customers have reached through one of the partners’ sites.
