WHAT IS A COOKIE?

An "Internet Cookie" (term also known as "browser cookie" or "HTTP cookie" or simply "cookie") is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, which will be stored on your computer, mobile terminal 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: the name and content or value of the cookie. Moreover, the existence 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.

Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify Internet users.

THERE ARE 2 LARGE CATEGORIES OF COOKIES:

Session cookies - these are temporarily stored in the cookie file 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 on social networks).

Persistent Cookies - These are stored on the hard drive of a computer or equipment (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 memorize the interests of a user, so that advertising is delivered as relevant to users.

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF COOKIES?

A cookie contains information that links 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 comfortable services to users: eg - preferences regarding online confidentiality, site language options, shopping carts or relevant advertising.

WHAT IS THE LIFE OF A COOKIE?

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 exclusively for a single session (session cookies) and are no longer withheld once the user has left the website and some cookies are retained and reused each time the user returns to that website ('cookie- permanent hours'). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time through the browser settings.

WHAT ARE COOKIES OF THIRD PARTIES?

Certain sections of content on some sites may be provided through third parties / providers (eg news box, a video or an advertisement). 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 the respective website. Third party providers must also comply with the law in force and the privacy policies of the site owner.

WHAT KIND OF INFORMATION ARE STORED AND ACCESSED THROUGH COOKIES?

Cookies keep 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 is deleted.

Cookie-ul stocheaza informatii importante care imbunatatesc experienta de navigare pe Internet ( ex: setarile limbii in care se doreste accesarea unui site; pastrarea unui user logat in contul de webmail; securitatea online banking; pastrarea produselor in cosul de cumparaturi)

WHY ARE COOKIES IMPORTANT TO THE INTERNET?

Cookie-urile reprezinta punctul central al functionarii eficiente a Internetului, ajutand la generarea unei experiente de navigare prietenoase si adaptata preferintelor si intereselor fiecarui utilizator. Refuzarea sau dezactivarea cookieurilor poate face unele site-uri imposibil de folosit.

Refusing or deactivating cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising - only that it will no longer be able to take into account your preferences and interests, evidenced by your browsing behavior.

EXAMPLES OF IMPORTANT COOKIE QUESTIONS (WHICH DO NOT REQUIRE AUTHORIZATION OF A USER THROUGH AN ACCOUNT):

Content and services adapted to the user's preferences - categories of news, weather, sports, maps, public and government services, entertainment sites and travel services.

Offers adapted to the interests of users - password retention, language preferences (Ex: displaying search results in Romanian).

Retaining child protection filters on Internet content (family mode options, safe search functions).

Limiting the frequency of ad serving - limiting the number of times an ad is displayed for a particular user on a site.

Providing more relevant advertising to 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 the unwebsite (eg through search engines, directly, from other websites, etc.) ). The websites carry out these analyzes of their use to improve the websites for the benefit of the users.

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. Because they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.

However, cookies can be used for negative purposes. Because it stores information about users' browsing preferences and 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. In general, browsers have integrated privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, validity period and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular site.

Other security aspects related to cookies

Other security aspects related to cookies Because identity protection is very valuable and represents the right of every Internet user, it is advisable to know what possible problems cookies may create. Because through them the information between the browser and the website is constantly transmitted in both directions, if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes during the data transmission, the information contained in the cookie 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 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.

TIPS FOR SAFE AND RESPONSIBLE NAVIGATION, BASED ON COOKIES.

Due to their flexibility and the fact that most of the most visited and largest sites use cookies, these are almost inevitable. Disabling cookies will not allow user access to the most popular and used sites including Youtube, Gmail, Yahoo and others.

Here are some tips that can ensure that you do not worry about it without the help of cookies:

Customize your browser settings regarding cookies to reflect a comfortable level for you of the security of the use of cookies.

If you do not mind cookies and you are the only person using the computer, you can set long deadlines for storing your browsing history and personal access data.

If you share computer access, you can consider setting the browser to clear individual browsing data each time you close the browser. This is an option to access the websites that place cookies and to delete any visit information at the end of the browsing session.

Install and update your antispyware applications constantly.

Many spyware detection and prevention applications include detecting site attacks. Thus, it 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 cookie-based attacks are performed by exploiting the weaknesses of older versions of browsers.

Cookies are everywhere and cannot be avoided if you want to enjoy access to the best and largest sites on the Internet - local or international. With a clear understanding of their mode of operation and the benefits they bring, you can take the necessary security measures so that you can safely browse the Internet.
