Privacy policy

What are cookies and cache?

Cookies are small text files sent by a web browser on a computer or other device. These files, unlike the contents of the pages are saved for some time in the memory of the browser, allowing you to store user settings (such as eg. the sort order of photos, but also data to automatically log the user) associated with viewing page.

A cache is a memory, which is written portion of site content - background, header, some images, HTML and CSS. Thanks to this, page loads faster, because you do not have to  download every time a whole site from the Internet, but only part of it. This speeds up the loading of the content and saves data transfer.

The above technologies are used on almost every website, including the SHiFT Web page. While functioning without them it is perfectly possible, so it would be inconvenient for the user - they are used only as a convenience. However, if you do not wish to leave the files in the browser's memory, there is a possibility.
