Different types of cookies

There are two types of cookies, both used on great-region.org. One saves files permanently on the user’s computer, in order for the visitor of the website to be able to customize the page according to their wishes. The second type only stores the information temporarily. The information is then deleted immediately when the user turns off the computer.

Great-region.org doesn’t collect or store your personal information so this information can’t be used to identify who you are.

On great-region.org we use cookies for visitor statistics to make the site better for visitors. The analysis tool Google Analytics generates both types of cookies.
