Lithuanian countryside tourism association (LCTA), company number: 135029913, address: K. Donelaičio g. 2, Kaunas, Lithuania uses cookies on the www.countryside.lt website (“Website”). By using our services (“Services”), you consent to the use of cookies.


What are cookies?

When you use and access the Services, we may place a number of cookies files in your web browser. A cookie is a small piece of data stored on your computer or mobile device by your web browser.

Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differentiate the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

Through the use of cookies, we can provide the users with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers can be optimized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognize our users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize our Services. The user that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time, because this is taken over by the web browser, and the cookie is thus stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in an online shop. The online store remembers the articles that a customer has placed in the virtual shopping cart via a cookie.
