First of all, it's important to emphasize that a certain amount of data is indirectly collected by our Partners in Advertising. These data are further used for the purpose of providing Personalized Ads, exclusively with the prior consent of each User individually. One of the more prominent examples of such Promotional Partners is Google AdSense.
Since Google itself must comply with the GDPR, the User can withdraw from the Data Collection Process anytime, and can do so using the links provided below.

From the same European Regulation, it is important to emphasize that General Data, Cookies and Personal Data such as Name, Last Name, Phone and E-Mail Number may not be collected without the express Consent of the User.
Where do data go?
As we have already mentioned before talking about AdSense and WordPress, there are some data collected by our partners or companies whose services we use ourselves. The same is the case with the hosting company and the Firm that does the same.
Hosting itself is shared, meaning that the data collected by our Hosting Companies can be found in both the EU and beyond.
What are cookies?
Cookies are simply said to be small, text data that is saved from the server (s) to your computer, in order to collect anonymous data.
Why do we use them?
Cookies are used to track some of the basic and key information such as the number and time of visits on a page. They also allow us to understand which articles are interesting to readers, and to improve the work and speed of the page. In addition to these well-known features, cookies also serve to make you able to use the stranger smoothly and easily. One example of this use is cookies that remember the searches you performed or the settings you saved on the page, so you do not have to make that optimization whenever you visit again.
Types of cookies.
Cookies can simply be divided into first-class and third-rate cookies. The division itself was based on their function, the place of the party that set them up and enabled them.
First Class Cookies
Top cookies are those that are set up and enabled by the same web site. The data collected by first-class cookies are primarily used to improve user experience. One of the most common examples of this type of cookie is the so-called. PopUp Window, which mainly serves to convey a message or information to the user.
As previously mentioned on this site dedicated to Privacy and Regulations, Balkan.ba uses several services that set their own limited cookies while providing the service. As an example of such services and partners, Google AdSense, WordPress and our Hosting Company are mentioned. It is important to emphasize once again that they do not come from our portal, we do not have control over them, nor the data they collect. Some of the most common reasons why they are used is to provide individual features on the page or personalize advertisements.
