Cookies are short fragments of text (letters and/or numbers) that allow the Web server to memorise information about the client (the browser); this information is reused during the visit being made to the site (session cookies) or subsequently, even after several days (persistent cookies). Cookies are saved by the individual browser on the specific device utilized (computer, tablet, smartphone), according to the user’s preferences.
Similar technology, for example web beacon, transparent GIF and all the forms of local storage introduced with HTML5, can be used to collect information on the user’s behaviour and the use of the services. Further on in this document we will refer to cookies and all the similar technology as “cookie” and/or “cookies”. According to their characteristics and use, cookies can be divided into various categories:
• Session cookies (strictly necessary). These cookies are essential for correct operation of the www.elte.eu site and are used for logging in and accessing the reserved functions on it. The cookies last as long as the work session (they are cancelled when the browser is closed). Disabling them compromises use of the services accessible from the login. The public part of the www.elte.eu site can be used as normal.
• Analysis and performance cookies. These cookies are used to collect and analyse traffic and site use anonymously. These cookies, even without identifying the user, make it possible, for example, to identify if the user reconnects with the site at other times. They also make it possible to monitor the system and improve performance and usability. These cookies can be disabled without losing any function.
• Persistent cookies. These permanent cookies are used to identify (anonymously and not) user preferences and improve their navigation experience. The www.elte.eu site does not apply this type of cookie.
By visiting a Web site you can receive cookies from the visited site (“First-Party”) and also from sites managed by other organisations (“Third party”). A noteworthy example is the “social plugins” for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. They are parts of the visited page and generated directly by these sites, and they are integrated into the page of the host site. The most common use of social plugins is to share contents on social networks.

The site www.elte.eu also includes some components transmitted by Google Analytics, a service supplied by Google Inc. (“Google”) that analyses Web traffic. Even in this case they are third party cookies that collect and handle data anonymously to monitor and improve host site performance (performance cookies).
Google Analytics uses “cookies” to collect and analyse anonymous information on how the www.elte.eu site is used (including the user’s IP address). This information is collected by Google Analytics, which elaborates it to draw up reports for the ELTE operators regarding Web site activity. This site does not use (and does not allow third parties to use) the Google analysis tool to monitor or collect personal identification information. Google does not associate the IP address to any other datum owned by Google, and does not try to connect an IP address with the identity of a user. Google can also communicate said information to third parties if imposed by law or whenever said third parties treat said information on behalf of Google.
For more information, go to the previously indicated link:
Users can selectively disable the activity of Google Analytics by installing the opt-out component, which is supplied by Google, into their browser. To disable Google Analytics, refer to the link:
Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or until the user logs out. Other cookies “survive” browser closing and are present even during subsequent visits. These cookies are called persistent and their lifespan is set by the server when they are created. In some cases they expire, in other cases they are limitless.
ELTE srl does not use persistent cookies. However, while using the www.elte.eu site pages, you can interact with sites run by third parties that can create or modify permanent cookies.
Users can decide whether to accept the cookies or not using their browser settings.
Warning: fully or partially disabling technical cookies can compromise use of the site functions reserved for registered users. On the contrary, public contents can be used even if the cookies are fully disabled. Disabling “third party” cookies does not compromise navigation in any manner. The setting can be defined specifically for different Web sites and applications. The best browsers allow users to set different settings for “first party” and “third party” cookies.
As an example, by selecting Tools->Options->Privacy in Firefox, you access a control panel where you can specify whether you want to accept or refuse the various types of cookie and remove them.
