- WHAT A COOKIE IS
An “Internet Cookie” (also known as a “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, that will be stored on your computer, mobile device or other equipment of a user accessing the Internet. The cookie is installed by a request issued by a web-server to a browser (eg Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely “passive” (does not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the user’s hard drive).
A cookie consists of 2 parts:
- Name and
- The content or value of the cookie.
Furthermore, the cookie’s lifetime is determined. Technically, only the webserver that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the website associated with that webserver.
Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, do not identify Internet users.
There are 2 major categories of cookies:
- Session cookies – these are temporarily stored in the cookie folder of the web browser so that it stores them until the user exits the respective web-site or closes the browser window (eg when logging in / logging in to a webmail account or social media).
- Persistent cookies – these are stored on the hard drive of a computer or device (and generally depends on the default cookie lifetime). Persistent cookies include those placed by a website other than the one the user visits at that time – known as ‘third party cookies’ – which can be used anonymously. to store the interests of a user so that the most relevant advertising is delivered to the users.

3.1. Performance cookies
This type of cookie retains the preferences of the user on this site, so no need to set them every time you visit the site.
3.2. Cookies for visitor analysis
Each time a user visits this site, the analytics software provided by a third party generates a user analysis cookie. This cookie tells us if you’ve visited this site before. The browser will tell us if you have this cookie, and if not, we will generate one. It allows the monitoring of the unique users who visit us and how often they do it.
3.3. Cookies for geotargetting
These cookies are used by software that determines which country you are from. It is completely anonymous and is only used to target content – even when you are on our page in Romanian or in another language you receive the same advertisement.
3.4. Cookies for advertising
These cookies allow us to find out whether or not you have viewed an online advertisement, which is its type and how long it has been since you saw your ad. We may also use third-party cookies for better advertising targeting, for example to show holiday advertisements, if the user recently visited an article on the holiday site. These cookies are anonymous, they store information about the content viewed, not about the users.
3.5. Cookies of advertising providers
Much of the advertising you find on websites belongs to third parties. Some of these parties use their own anonymous cookies to analyze how many people have been exposed to an advertising message or to see how many people have been exposed multiple times in the same advertisement.
The companies that generate these cookies have their own privacy policies, and this site does not have access to read or write these cookies. Third-party cookies may be used to show you advertising or to target other sites, based on your browsing of a site.
3.6. Other third-party cookies
On some pages, third parties may set their own anonymous cookies, in order to track the success of an application, or to customize an application. Due to the way they are used, this site cannot access these cookies, just as third parties cannot access the cookies owned by this site. For example, when you share an article using the social media button on this site, that social network will record your activity.
- WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COOKIES
A cookie contains information that links between a web browser (the user) and a particular web-server (the website). If a browser accesses that web-server again, it can read the information already stored and react accordingly.
Cookies provide users with a pleasant browsing experience and support the efforts of many websites to provide user-friendly services (eg online privacy preferences, site language options, shopping carts or relevant advertising).
- WHICH IS THE LIFE OF A COOKIE LIFE
Cookies are managed by web servers. The lifetime of a cookie may vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed. Some cookies are used only for one session (session cookies) and are no longer withheld after the user leaves the website. Other cookies are retained and reused each time the user returns to that website (permanent cookies). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time through the browser settings.
- WHAT ARE THIRD PARTY COOKIES?
Certain content sections on some sites may be provided through third parties / providers (eg news box, video or advertising). These third parties may also place cookies through the site and they are called “third party cookies” because they are not placed by the owner of that website. Third-party providers must also comply with the law in force and the privacy policies of the site owner.
- WHY COOKIES ARE IMPORTANT FOR THE INTERNET
Cookies are the central point of the efficient functioning of the Internet, helping to generate a user-friendly browsing experience and adapted to the preferences and interests of each user. Refusing or disabling cookies can make some sites impossible to use.
Refusing or deactivating cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising, but that it will no longer be able to take into account your preferences and interests, highlighted by your browsing behavior.
- SECURITY AND PROBLEMS RELATED TO CONFIDENTIALITY
COOKIES ARE NOT VIRUSES. They use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code so they cannot be executed, nor can they self-run. As a result, you cannot duplicate or replicate on other networks to run or replicate again. Failure to perform these functions cannot be considered viruses.
However, cookies can be used for negative purposes. Because it stores information about users’ browsing preferences and browsing history, both on a particular site and on several other sites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware.
Many anti-spyware products are aware of this fact and are constantly flagging cookies for deletion in anti-virus / anti-spyware removal / scanning procedures. Generally, browsers have built-in privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, validity period and automatic deletion, after the user has visited a particular site.
Other cookie-based attacks involve incorrect cookie settings on servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to trick browsers into sending information through unsecured channels. The attackers then use the information for the purpose of unauthorized access to certain sites. It is very important to be careful when choosing the most appropriate method of protecting personal information.
Because identity protection is very valuable and represents the right of every Internet user, it is advisable to know the possible problems that cookies can create. Because, through them, information between the browser and the website is constantly transmitted, if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes during the data transmission, the information contained in the cookie can be intercepted. Although this is very rare, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (eg an unsecured WiFi network).
