This policy refers to the cookies and webpages of this site.

What are Cookies?

The cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that will be stored on your computer, mobile terminal, or other equipment of a user accessing the Internet. The cookie is installed via a web browser request from a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely "passive" (does not contain software, viruses or spyware and can not access the information regarding the user's hard drive).

What are Cookies used for?

These files make it possible to recognize the user's terminal and present the content in a relevant way, adapted to the user's preferences. Cookies - are used to prepare aggregated anonymous statistics that help us understand how a user benefits from our web pages, allowing us to improve their structure and content, excluding personal identification of the user.

What Cookies do we use?

We use two types of cookies: per session and fixed. The latter are temporary files remaining in the user's terminal until the end of the session or closing the application (the web browser). Fixed files remain on the user's terminal for a while in the Cookie's parameters or until they are manually deleted by the user.

How are cookies used by this site?

A visit of this site may place cookies for purposes of:

  • Site performance cookies
  • Visitor analysis cookies
  • Cookies for geotargetting
  • Recording cookies
  • Cookies for advertising
  • Advertisers cookies

Do Cookies include personal data?

Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify Internet users. Personal data collected by using Cookies can only be collected to facilitate certain user functions. Such data is encrypted in a way that makes unable any unauthorized persons to access them.

Delete cookies

In general, an application used to access web pages allows you to save your Cookies in the terminal by default. These settings can be changed in such a way that the automatic administration of Cookies is blocked by the web browser or the user is informed whenever cookies are sent to his or her terminal. Detailed information about the possibilities and ways of managing cookies can be found in the application settings area (the web browser). Restricting the use of Cookies may affect certain features of the web page.

Why are Internet Cookies important?

Cookies are the central focus of the efficient Internet, helping to generate a friendly browsing experience and customized to the preferences and interests of each user. Refusing or disabling cookies can make some sites unusable.

Refusing or disabling cookies does not mean you will not receive online advertising - but it will no longer be able to keep track of your preferences and interests highlighted by your browsing behavior.

Examples of important uses of cookies (which do not require authentication of a user into an account):

  • Content and services customized to user preferences - product categories and services.
  • Offers customized for user interests – remember the passwords.
  • Retain filters of child protection regarding Internet content (family mode options, safe search functions).
  • Limiting ad frequency - limit the number of displays of an ad 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 kind of content is viewed, and how a user reaches a website (e.g. by search engines, directly from other websites, etc.). Websites run these analyzes of their use to improve sites for the benefit of users.

Security and privacy (confidentiality) issues

Cookies use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code, so they can not be executed or auto-run. Consequently, they can not be duplicated or replicated on other networks for running or replicating again. Because they can not perform these functions, they can not be considered viruses.

Cookies can still be used for negative purposes. Because it stores information about user 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, validity and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular site.

Other security issues related to cookies:

Since identity protection is very valuable and is the right of every internet user, it is advisable to know what issues can create cookies. In order to send constant information in both ways between the browser and the website, if a hacker or unauthorized person intervenes during the data transmission, the information contained in the cookie can be intercepted.

Although very rarely, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (e.g. an unsecured Wi-Fi network).

Other cookie-based attacks involve bad cookie settings on servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, hackers can use this vulnerability to prevent browsers from sending information via insecure channels. Hackers then use information for the purpose 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.

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

Here are a few tips that can help you to safely navigate with cookies:

  • Customize your browser settings for cookies to reflect a comfortable level for you regarding cookie security.
  • 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 access data.
  • If you share access to your computer, 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 delete any business information when you close the browsing session.
  • Constantly install and update your antispyware applications.

Many of the applications for detection and prevention of spyware include the detection of site attacks. 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 attacks are carried out 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 largest internet websites - 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 browse with confidence on the internet.

Disabling and refusing to receive cookies can make some sites unfeasible or difficult to visit and use. Also, refusing to accept cookies does not mean you will not get / see online advertising anymore.

It is possible to set up the browser so that these cookies are no longer supported or you can set the browser to accept cookies from a particular site. But for example, if you are not registered using cookies, you will not be able to leave comments.
