Rules about the use of internet cookies

 

1. Statement about cookies

 

1.1. About cookies

Websites use intelligent and useful techniques to assure a more user friendly experience for our users and to make the experience of each visitor as interesting as they can. One of the most known techniques is cookies. Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting, i.e. by its owners, or by a third party, for example advertises who communicate via websites you are visiting.

Cookies are simple text files that are stored by the websites on the user’s computer. Information stored in cookies can also be used to follow your browser on various websites that use the same cookie.

The classification of cookies is based on their sustainability and the source of their setting.

 

2. How the www.arriva.si website uses cookies

www.arriva.si website uses session cookies to ensure the functioning of the website. The PHPSESSID cookie is deleted when you close your browser, while the cc_necessary and cc_analytics cookies last six (6) months. The purpose of cookies is to improve the usability of the website for you as a user and to record your decisions about privacy.

Website www.arriva.si also uses a Google Analytics cookie for tracking web statistics and visitor activity on the website. This cookie lasts till the end of the session.

 

3. Cookies and their functionality

Different kinds of cookies are used for different purposes. What follows are descriptions of the most common types of cookies and their purposes:

 

3.1. Session cookies

Session cookie is temporarily stored in the memory of your computer when you browse the website, for example, to remember what language you have chosen. Session cookies are not stored long-term on your computer, but disappear as soon as you close the web browser.

 

3.2. Permanent or tracking cookies

Permanent cookie stores a file on your computer for a long time; this type of cookie has a set expiry date of operation. Permanent cookies help websites to retrieve your information and settings for your next visit.  This makes the access to the website quicker and easier since, for example, you don’t have to log in again.

After the expiry of operations the cookie is automatically deleted as soon as you return to the website which created it.

 

3.3. First party cookies

First party cookies are cookies that are created by the website only (the domain listed in the address bar of your browser) and that can only be read by this website. These cookies are commonly used to store information, such as your favourites, to revisit websites.

 

3.4. Third party cookies

Third party cookies are cookies that are set by another domain, not the domain listed in the address bar of your browser, i.e. other organisations, and not the owner of the website. Among the ‘third party cookies’ are also cookies that collect data for advertising, content adjustment and web statistics. Because third party cookies offer a wider overview of the user’s browsing habits, they are considered to be more sensitive in terms of integrity, and this is why most of the internet browsers allow you to adjust settings in a way that your computer does not receive third party cookies.

 

3.5. Google Analytics Cookies

With the help of these cookies we record the visitors’ statistics. These cookies do not contain personal information and serve only to ensure the uniqueness of visits. You can find out more about the Google Analytics cookies, its purpose and duration on the Cookie statement website. If you want to block Google Analytics, you can do so on this website.
