This website uses its own cookies and those from third parties in order to provide to the visitors a much better browsing experience and services tailored to the needs and interest of each user.

In what we call "Web 2.0" the cookies are playing an important role in facilitating access and delivery of multiple services on the Internet, such as:

Customizing certain settings such as the language in which a site is viewed, the currency in which it are expressed some prices or rates, keeping options for various products (measures, other details) to the shopping cart (and storing these options) - thus generating the "shopping cart" flexibility (accessing old preferences by clicking the "forward" and "back" button).

The cookies provide to the sites owners valuable feedback on how are their websites used the users so that they can make them more effective and accessible to users.

Allow to other multimedia applications or other type on other sites to be included in a particular site in order to create a more valuable, more useful and more enjoyable browsing experience;

Improve the efficiency of online advertising. 

What is a "cookie"?

An "Internet cookie" is a small file consisting of letters and numbers that will be stored on your computer mobile terminal or other equipment of a user who is accessing the Internet.

The cookie is installed by a request issued by a web server to a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is totally "passive" (does not contain software, viruses or spyware and can not access information on the user's hard drive).

Basically, the cookies do not require personal information to be used and, in most of the cases, they do not personally identify the Internet users.

There are two broad categories of cookies:

Session cookies - they are temporarily stored in the cookie file of your web browser in order to store them until the user exits the web-site or close the browser window (e.g. when logging / logging out on a webmail account or on social networks).

Persistent cookies - these are stored on the hard drive of a computer or equipment (generally depends on the cookie default lifetime). The persistent cookies also include those placed by another web site other that the one visited by the user at the time - they are known as "third party cookies" (cookies placed by third parties) - that can be used anonymously to memorize a user's interests, in order to deliver as relevant as possible advertising to users. 

What are the advantages of cookies?

A cookie contains information that links a web-browser (user) and a specific web server (website). If a browser accesses that web server again, it can read the information already stored and can react accordingly. Cookies provide to users an enjoyable navigation experience and support the efforts of many web-sites to provide comfortable services for the users (e.g. online privacy preferences, options for website language, shopping cart or relevant advertising). 

What is the lifetime of a cookie?

Cookies are managed by web-servers. The lifetime of a cookie can vary significantly depending upon the purpose for which it is placed. Some cookies are used only for one session (session cookies) and will not be retained once the user has left the web-site and some cookies are retained and reused every time the user returns to that website (" persistent cookies "). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time via browser settings. 

What are the cookies placed by third parties?

Certain sections of content on some sites may be provided by third parties / suppliers (e.g. news box, a video or an advertisement). These third parties may also place cookies via the site and they are called "third party cookies" because they are not placed by the owner of the website in question. Third-party providers must also comply with applicable law and the privacy policies of the site owner.

What type of information is stored and accessed via cookies?

Cookies retain information in a small text file that allows a website to recognize a browser. The web-server will recognize the browser until the cookie expires or it is deleted.

The cookie stores important information that improves the Internet browsing experience (e.g. language settings, keeping a user logged into webmail account, online banking security, keeping the products in the shopping cart). 

Why are cookies important for the Internet?

Cookies are the focus of the efficient functioning of the Internet, helping to generate a friendly navigation experience and tailored to each user interests and preferences. Denying or disabling cookies can make some websites impossible to use. Denying or disabling cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising - but it will not be possible to consider your preferences and interests evidenced by the browsing behavior.

Examples of important uses of cookies (not requiring user authentication through an account):

Content and services tailored to users’ preferences - categories of news, weather, sports, maps, public and government services, entertainment sites and travel services.

Offers tailored to users' interests - remembering passwords, language preferences (e.g. displaying search results in the Romanian language).

Retention of child protection filters for Internet content (family mode options, safe search functions).

capping the advertising frequency - capping the number of postings for an advertisement for a particular user on a site.

Providing more relevant advertising to users.

Measurement, optimization and analytics features - such as confirming a certain level of traffic to a website, what type of content is viewed and how a user arrives on a website (e.g. via search engines directly from other websites etc). The websites are running this usage analyzes to improve their sites for the benefit of the users. 

Security and confidentiality issues

Cookies ARE NOT viruses! They use plain text formats. There are not composed of pieces of code so they can not be launched neither can auto-run. Consequently, they can not be duplicated or replicated on other networks to run again. Because they can not perform these functions they can not be regarded as viruses. Cookies can still be used for negative purposes. Since they store preferences and information about users' browsing history, both on a particular site and several other sites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this fact and constantly mark cookies to be deleted by the removal / antivirus scan / anti-spyware proceedings.

 

Generally, browsers have integrated privacy settings that provide different levels of acceptance of cookies: validity and automatic removal period after a user has visited a particular site. Because protection of the identity is very valuable and is the right of every Internet user, you should know what possible problems can create cookies. Because through them it is constantly transmitted in both directions, information between browser and website, if an attacker or an unauthorized person comes in during data transmission, the information contained in the cookie can be intercepted. Although rarely, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (e.g. an unsecure Wi-Fi network).

Other attacks based on cookies involve wrong settings of cookies on servers. If a website does not require to browser to use only encrypted channels, the attackers can use this vulnerability to trick the browsers into sending information through insecure channels. Attackers then use that information for unauthorized access to certain sites. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most appropriate method of protection of personal information.
