2. Information for Users
While browsing any page of the Site, the page itself is downloaded to your computer, as well as a small text file called "cookie". Such files are used by many sites, because "cookies" allow you to do a lot of useful things. For example, thanks to these files, site owners can determine whether a particular computer (and probably its User) has been on this site before. This happens during a second visit to the site by checking the user's computer for the presence of a cookie left over from the last visit.
The information we receive through cookies helps us to provide you with our services in the most convenient way for you, and can also help us to get an idea about our readers. For example: if, after visiting the Site, you visited a section, then next time we can find out about it from the "cookie" and highlight articles from this section during your subsequent visits to the Site.
