Information about cookies and how we use them

What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files located in your browser on your device (computer, smartphone, tablet). They help the browsers to work properly and display relevant content. The pages you have visited remember your browsing and preferences. This makes your user experience more enjoyable.

Where we use cookies
We use cookies on kb.cz and other websites operated and supported by Komerční banka.

Why we use cookies
In summary, cookies are used for an optimal set up of the information provided via all websites, links and other parts of the website. Cookies do not slow down browsing of the web.

Technical cookies

If your browser did not use cookies, the website would not work properly. For example, the site would not remember the data you have entered and you would have to re-enter it every time (e.g. bank account credentials, pre-filled credit calculators, etc.).

You could say that cookies are something like small carts that are parked and loaded with data (such as a pre-filled calculator), waiting for you to press the “Send“ button. Then these “carts“ safely deliver your requirements to the bank.

These cookies are required.

Analytical cookies

We do not see you specifically, but we see all users together.

Analytical cookies help us to keep improving our website for you by tracking the statistics, e.g. total website traffic, clickes on a specific button, etc. The data collected is anonymous and aggregated.

Google Analytics, Matomo (Piwik) and Smartlook are used as analytical tools.

You can manage this type of cookies in your browser.

Marketing cookies

Cookies are not able to send you any emails.

Their task is to display the website according to your preferences, and to ensure that you are not bothered with something you are not interested in.
