Cookies are small text files stored on the hard drive of your computer when you visit web pages. They are used to identify your browser. Other utilities can serve for the same purpose.
Cookies stored on your disk by web pages operated by the Czech Geological Survey can be divided into three groups:
1. Essential cookies necessary for the full operation of the web pages, e.g. cookies that store information about your login to the CGS portal. These cookies can not be turned off because you can not use our website without them.
2. Cookies used to measure visitors traffic which do not detect sociodemographic information about visitors. Use of these cookies is enabled by default, but you can disable it.
3. Cookies used (by Google Analytics) to collect socio-demographic data about visitors for statistical purposes. Use of these cookies is disabled by default, but you can enable it (and by doing that help us to create sites that would be more suited to your needs).
The Czech Geological Survey is not capable of identifying specific users of its site from stored cookies (if you do not log on to its site as an authorized user). However, if you are using any social networks, these may detect that you visit websites of the Czech Geological Survey.
