Subject of the Statement

We process the data of the visitors and users (“User”) of website (“Website”) as detailed hereunder.

The Data Controller: White Paper Consulting Kft.
Headquarter at: 1112 Budapest, Sasadi út 167.
Reg. No.: 01-09-901585

We would like You to know how your data is processed, and this is very important to us, so in this Cookie Statement, we describe exactly what cookies we are processing, for what purposes, and under what conditions.

What are cookies?

A cookie is an information package sent by the server to the browser, and then sent back by the browser to the server each time a request directed to the server is sent.

Cookies are created by the web server itself with the help of the browser on the user’s computer or mobile device, where cookies are stored in a separate directory. Thus, cookies enable the website to recognise if the user has already visited it earlier.

Kinds and types of cookies

  1. Based on the storage period

On our website, we may use two types of cookies: session or temporary cookies, and persistent or stored cookies:

1.1 Session/temporary cookie:

These cookies are only stored in volatile memory temporarily while the user is navigating on the site. When the user closes the browser, the cookie is deleted. These cookies do not contain personal data and do not identify the visitor.

1.2 Stored/persistent cookie:

These are the cookies that are used every time the user visits the site. Based on the purpose, type of cookies, these can be used as follows:

  • Analytics/Analysis:
    This shows where the visitor has been within the Website, what subpages, content they viewed, what they did. The cookie remains on the machine of the client based on lifetime. It may be used by functions such as Google Analytics or YouTube. These cookies do not contain personal data and do not identify the visitor.
  • Social networks:
    These enable the user to easily access social media networks, share their opinion, our articles with others. These may be used by third parties such as Facebook, Google+, Pinterest, Twitter, Tumblr, Reddit or YouTube. These cookies may contain personal data, and identify the visitor.
  1. Based on the legal basis and purpose of usage
  • Cookies storing data recorded by the user (“user-input cookies”):

These session cookies are used to provide user input during message exchanges with the service provider. They are based on a session identifier (a random temporary identification number), and expire at the end of the session (when exiting the browser program) at the latest. These cookies are linked to user activity (so e.g. clicking on a button or filling out a form), and are clearly required to provide the Internet service explicitly requested by the user

  • Load balancing session cookies (“load balancing session cookies”):

Load balancing enables to distribute the processing of requests received by the web server between many computers instead of a single machine. The control of this has to be maintained throughout the session; the sole purpose of information contained in the cookies is to identify the server-side endpoint of communication (one of the servers in the set of computers).

  • Social content sharing cookies: These enable the users of a social network to share the content they like with their friends. These cookies are deleted when the user “logs out” from the social network platform or closes the browser.

2.2 Cookies processed based on your consent: If You give consent, in addition to the above, we also process the following cookies:

  • Social content sharing tracking cookies (“social plug-in tracking cookies”): In case the members of social networks have consented to “tracking” when setting up the given social network in a logged-in state, e.g. for the display of behaviour-based advertisements. The additional purpose of the use of these cookies may also be for example the tracking of behaviour, analysis, or market research.
  • Cookies used for behaviour tracking by third parties (“Third party advertising”): third parties different from the operator of the Website, i.e. the Controller may place their own anonymous cookies on the Website. They do all this to track the successfulness of their applications, or to customise their applications for You. Due to the mode of operation of these cookies, our Website cannot access these cookies, and the other organisation cannot access the cookies we use on our Website for your data either. This includes e.g. social media sharing in which you share any content from the Website using a social media sharing button (for example on Facebook), and the social media that created the button records the share using a cookie.
  • Statistical audience measurement cookies (“First party analytics”): Through the anonymous collection of data, statistical cookies assist the operator of the Website in understanding how the visitors interact with the Website.
  • External advertising cookies: These include external operation cookies that are used during advertising, including the cookies used for the purposes of frequency maximisation, financial logging, advertising partnership, the detection of click fraud, market analysis, product improvement and error detection.
  • Own visit analysers: Visit analyzers are statistical tools that measure the usage of the Website, which use cookies. We use these tools to estimate the number of individual visitors, identify the keywords used most frequently in search engines that lead to the Website, as well as to track the individual web navigation requests. These exclusively serve purposes concerning our own aggregated statistics, so that the Website can serve visitor demands more quickly, more precisely.
