Some cookies ensure that certain parts of the website and your user preferences work properly. By placing functional cookies, we make it easier for you to visit our website.

This happens based on a profile that we create based on your clicks and browsing on and off www.blackblox.si. These cookies link you as a visitor to the website to a unique identifier so that, for example, you do not see the same advert more than once.
