The website I Help Estonia uses cookies to give you access to various functions and opportunities and to make it easier for you to use the website and to help collect usage statistics.

Cookies are small text files that the website stores on the Visitor’s computer or mobile device when the Visitor visits the website.

Cookies are not dangerous for your computer.

There are two types of cookies:

  1. Persistent cookies remain permanently in the cookie file on the user’s computer. They can be used, for example, to identify the user as a repeat visitor to the website and to adapt the content of the website to the user’s needs or to collect statistics.
  2. Session cookies are temporary and disappear when the user leaves the website or closes their browser. Session cookies may be used to enable certain functions of the website, such as requesting a service or product, etc.
