Device and browser information. The company may collect technical data of the customer's device, such as device type, type of web browser, IP address, operating system and device ID. The company retrieves this information automatically from the device and web browser using cookies and related technologies.

Information on how to communicate with us. We may collect technical information about how users use the Site and how they respond to advertisements and promotions on the web, such as content viewed or downloaded, features used, links clicked, promotional e-mails opened, and interaction dates and times. BORNIAK collects this information using cookies and related technologies.

Cookies and related technologies: A "cookie" is an information file that is stored on your device when you visit a website. Cookies and related technologies improve the user's experience by saving their preferences, personalizing the browsing behavior, storing information and products in the shopping cart, and sometimes enabling the delivery of advertisements corresponding to their interests.

The sites use "session cookies". They do not make it possible to identify the person and disappear when the web browser window is closed. For example, when a user browses the Product Catalog, the numbers of the viewed pages are saved in the session cookie. Based on this information, we can recommend you other products that may be of interest to you.

In addition, the websites use "persistent cookies" that do not disappear when the browser window is closed. These data are stored on the user's computer until they are deleted or their expiry date has expired. By assigning an identifier to your computer, we can create a database of your prior choices and preferences, which we can then apply automatically to facilitate and accelerate your use of our sites in the future.

For example, if you decide to purchase again after placing an order, the delivery address can be inserted automatically and you just need to confirm it.

In addition, the web browser may contain settings that allow you to accept or reject cookies and inform the user about each cookie saved on his computer.

Statistics and advertising.

Do Not Track settings of web browsers. Some web browsers may send a "Do Not Track" (DNT) signal to the web pages you open. As there is no general consensus on the interpretation of DNT signals yet, we are not currently responding to them.
