Legal basis of processing
If we can identify the person of the website visitor during the recording, it will be considered as processing of personal data. For such processing we must have a legal basis.
In the case of basic cookies, it will be the legal basis of the legitimate interests of the operator according to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR that is interested in ensuring the operation of the operator’s websites. At the same time, such an approach is also enabled by § 109 (8) of Act no. 452/2021 on electronic communications, pursuant to which: „Anyone who stores or accesses information, stored in the user’s terminal device, is entitled to do so only if the user concerned has given demonstrable consent.

In the case of other cookies, the legal basis is the consent to the processing of personal data pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR obtained from you as the person concerned.
