In what we call “web 2.0,” cookies play an important role in facilitating the access and delivery of the many services the user enjoys on the Internet, such as:
Customize certain settings such as the language in which a site is viewed, the currency in which certain prices or tariffs are expressed, the storage of options for various products (measures, other details, etc.) in the shopping cart (and the storage of these options) the flexibility of the shopping cart (accessing old preferences by clicking the ‘forward’ and ‘back’ buttons).
Cookies provide site owners with valuable feedback on how their sites are used by users so they can make them even more effective and accessible to users.
Allow multimedia or other applications from other sites to be included in a particular site to create a more valuable, useful, and enjoyable browsing experience;
Improve the efficiency of online advertising.
What is a cookie?
An “Internet Cookie” (also known as “cookie browser” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file of letters and numbers that will be stored on your computer, other equipment of a user accessing the Internet. The cookie is installed through a web browser’s browser request (eg Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely “passive” (does not contain software, viruses or spyware and can not access the information on the hard drive user).
A cookie consists of 2 parts: the name and the content or the cookie value. Furthermore, the duration of a cookie 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.
What are the benefits of cookies?
A cookie contains information linking a web browser (user) and a specific web-server (website). If a browser accesses that web-server again, it can read the already stored information and respond accordingly. Cookies provide users with a pleasant browsing experience and support the efforts of many websites to provide user-friendly services: ex – online privacy preferences, site language options, shopping carts, or relevant advertising.
What is the lifetime of a cookie?
Cookies are managed by web servers. A cookie’s life may vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed. Some cookies are used exclusively for one session (session cookies) and are no longer retained once the user has left the website and some cookies are retained and reused each time the user returns to that site (‘cookie’ permanent ‘). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time through browser settings.
What are cookies placed by third parties?
Certain sections of content on some sites may be provided through third parties / vendors. 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 vendors must also comply with the site’s current law and privacy policies and the GDPR Rules.
What types of cookies we use:
- Required Cookies
The necessary cookies help make a site usable by enabling basic features such as page navigation and access to secure sites on the site. The site can not function properly without these cookies.

When you register with this site, we generate a cookie that tells us if you are registered or not. Our servers use these cookies to show us your account and if you have permission for a particular service. It also allows us to associate any comment you post on our site with your username.
- Statistical cookies
Statistical cookies help site owners understand how visitors interact with sites by collecting and reporting information anonymously without collecting personal data.
- Marketing cookies
Marketing cookies are used to track users from one site to another. The intent is to display relevant and engaging ads for individual users, so they are more valuable to advertisers and third parties dealing with advertising.
These cookies let us know whether or not you have viewed an online ad, what type of ad, and how long it has been since you saw the ad message. These cookies are also used to target online advertising. We may also use third-party cookies to better target advertising. These cookies are anonymous, they store information about the viewed content, not the users. We also set anonymous cookies through other sites that we advertise. By accepting them, so we can use them to recognize you as a visitor to that site if you later visit our site, we will be able to deliver your advertising based on this information.
- Advertiser cookies
Much of the advertising you find on this site belongs to third parties. Some of these parties use their own anonymous cookies to analyze how many people have been exposed to an ad, or to see how many people have been exposed multiple times to the same ad. 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 can be used to show your targeted advertising on other sites, relying on your navigation on this site.
- Other cookies from third parties
On some pages, third parties can set their own anonymous cookies in order to track the success of an app, or to improve an app. Due to the use of this site, this site can not access these cookies, just as third parties can not access the cookies owned by this site. For example, when you share an article using the social network button on this site, that social network will record your activity.
What type of information is stored and accessed through cookies?
Cookies store information in a small text file that allows a website to recognize a browser. The webserver will recognize your browser until the cookie expires or is deleted. The cookie stores important information that enhances your Internet browsing experience (for example, the settings of the language in which you want to access a site, keeping a user logged in to your webmail account, online banking security, keeping your products in the shopping cart)
Why are Internet cookies important?
Cookies are the central focus of the Internet’s efficient operation, helping to generate a friendly browsing experience and tailored to the preferences and interests of each user. Denying or disabling cookies can make some sites impossible to use.
Denying or disabling cookies does not mean you will not receive online advertising – but only that it will no longer be able to keep your preferences and interests highlighted by your browsing behavior.
Examples of important uses of cookies (which do not require authentication of a user through an account):
Content and services tailored to user preferences – news, weather, sports, maps, public and government services, entertainment sites and travel services.
Offers tailored to the interests of users – password retention, language preferences (eg display of Romanian search results).
Retain child copy filters for content on the Internet (family mode options, safe search functions).
Limit ad serving frequency – limit the number of impressions of an ad for a particular user on a site.
Provide more relevant advertising for the user.
Measurement, optimization, and analytics features – such as confirming a certain level of traffic on a website, what type of content is viewed, and how a user reaches a website (eg, search engines, directly from other websites, etc.). Websites run these analyzes of their use to improve sites for the benefit of users.
Security and confidentiality issues
Cookies are NOT Viruses! They use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code so they can not be executed or even run. Consequently, they can not duplicate or replicate on other networks to run or replicate again. Because they can not perform these functions, they can not be considered viruses.
Cookies can nevertheless be used for negative purposes. Because it stores information about users’ 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 and consistently mark cookies to be deleted in anti-virus / anti-spyware removal / scanning procedures.
In general, browsers have built in privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, shelf life, and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular site.
Other security issues related to cookies
Because identity protection is very valuable and is the right of every Internet user, it is advisable to know what problems can create cookies. Because they transmit constant information in both ways between the browser and the website, if an attacker or unauthorized person interferes with the data transmission, the information contained in the cookies can be intercepted. Although very rare, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (eg an unsecured WiFi network).
Other cookie-based attacks involve incorrect cookie settings on the servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to mislead browsers to send information through insecure channels. Attackers then use the information for purposes of unauthorized access to certain sites. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most appropriate method of protecting personal information.
Tips for safe and responsible cookie-based navigation.
Customize your cookie browser settings to reflect a comfortable cookie level for you
If you do not mind cookies and you are the only person using your computer, you can set long expiration dates to store your browsing history and personal data.
If you share your computer access, you can consider the browser setting to delete individual browsing data each time you close your browser. This is a way to access sites that place cookies and to delete any visitor information when the session is closed.
Install and constantly update your antispyware applications.
Many of the spyware detection and prevention applications include site attacks detection. This prevents the browser from accessing websites that could exploit browser vulnerabilities or download dangerous software. Make sure your browser is always up-to-date. Many of the cookies-based attacks are exploited by exploiting the weaknesses of the old versions of browsers.
Cookies are everywhere and can not be avoided if you want to enjoy access to the best and greatest websites on the Internet – local or international. With a clear understanding of how they work and the benefits they bring, you can take the necessary security measures so you can safely browse the internet.
