WHAT ARE COOKIES?

A "cookie" (a term also known as "browser cookie", "HTTP cookie" or "Internet cookie") is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, which will be stored on the computer, the mobile terminal, or other equipment of a user from which the Internet is accessed. The cookie is installed by the request issued by a web server to a browser (e.g.: Internet Explorer, Chrome), does not contain software programs, viruses, or spyware, and cannot access the information on the user's terminal). 

The cookie has two components, namely a name and a content (cookie value), and its duration is technically determined, only the web server that sent the cookie can access it again when the user returns to the website associated with the respective web server.

Thus, it is important to know that a cookie, in itself, does not request personal information in order to be used and, in most cases, does not personally identify Internet users.

WHAT ARE COOKIES USED FOR?

A cookie contains information that connects a web browser (the user) and a specific 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 more pleasant browsing experience and support the efforts of many websites to provide user-friendly services (e.g.: online privacy preferences, website language options, shopping carts, if the case, or relevant advertising).

Cookies are also used in the preparation of aggregate anonymous statistics that help us understand how a user benefits from our website, allowing us to improve its structure and content, without allowing the user to be personally identified.

WHAT IS THE LIFETIME OF A COOKIE?

Cookies are managed by web servers and their lifetime can vary significantly depending on the purpose for which it is placed. 

Thus, cookies are of two categories, as follows:

  • Per session cookies – these are temporarily stored in the cookie folder of the web browser so that it remembers them until the user exits the respective website or closes the browser window (e.g.: when logging in – connecting/logging out - disconnecting on a webmail account).
  • Permanent/fixed cookies – these are stored on the hard drive of a computer or equipment, depending, in general, on the lifetime of the cookie. Persistent cookies also include those placed by a website other than the one the user is visiting at the time - known as “third party cookies” - which can be used anonymously to remember a user's interests so that the most relevant advertising to users is delivered.

However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time through the browser settings.

WHAT ARE THIRD-PARTY COOKIES?

Certain sections of content on some websites may be provided through third parties/providers (e.g.: a news box, a video, or an advertisement). These third parties can also place cookies through the website 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 applicable laws and the privacy policies of the website owner.

Google may also transfer this information to third parties, if required by law or if such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other information it holds. You can block the use of cookies by selecting certain settings for your browser. If you choose this option, however, you may not be able to use all of the website's features. By using the website, you automatically consent to Google processing your data in the manner and for the purposes stated above.

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 web server will recognize the browser until the cookie expires or is deleted. The cookie stores important information that improves the Internet browsing experience (e.g.: language settings in which a website is accessed, keeping a user logged in to the webmail account, online banking security, and keeping products in the shopping cart).

WHY COOKIES ARE IMPORTANT TO THE INTERNET?

Cookies are central to the efficient functioning of the Internet, helping to generate a user-friendly browsing experience tailored to each user's preferences and interests. Refusing or disabling cookies may make some websites unusable.

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

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

  • Content and services tailored to the user's preferences (e.g.: categories of news, weather, sports, maps, public and government services, entertainment websites, and travel services).
  • Offers tailored to users' interests - password retention, language preferences (e.g.: the display of search results in Romanian / English).
  • Retention of child protection filters regarding Internet content (e.g.: family mode options, safe search functions).
  • Limiting the frequency of serving ads – limiting the number of times an ad is shown to a specific user on a website.
  • Providing more relevant advertising to the user.
  • Measuring, optimizing, and adapting the analysis features/analytics – such as confirming a certain level of traffic on a website, what type of content is viewed and how a user arrives at a website (e.g.: through search engines, directly, from other websites, etc.). Websites run these analyzes regarding their use in order to improve their services for the benefit of users.

SECURITY AND PRIVACY MATTERS

Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text formats. Cookies are not made up of pieces of code so they cannot be executed or auto-run. Consequently, they cannot be duplicated or replicated to other networks to run or replicate again. Since they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.

Cookies can still be used for negative purposes. Because they store information about users’ preferences and browsing history, both on a particular website and across multiple websites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this fact and constantly mark cookies for deletion during anti-virus/anti-spyware deletion/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 certain website.

Other security aspects related to cookies:

  • Customizing your browser's cookie settings to reflect a comfortable level of cookie security for you.
  • If you are the only person using the computer, you can optionally set long expiration periods for storing your browsing history and personal access data.
  • If you share computer access, you may consider setting your browser to delete individual browsing data each time you close the browser. This is an option to access websites that place cookies and delete any visitation information when you close your browsing session.

Other security aspects related to cookies

Since identity protection is very valuable and is the right of every Internet user, it is advisable to know what potential problems cookies can create. Because through them information is constantly transmitted in both directions between the browser and the website, if an attacker or an unauthorized person intervenes during 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 (e.g.: an unsecured WIFI network).

Other cookie-based attacks involve mis setting cookies on servers. If a website does not instruct the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to trick browsers into sending information over unsecured channels. Attackers then use the information to gain unauthorized access to certain websites. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most appropriate method of protecting personal information.

Tips for safe and responsible browsing based on cookies

Due to their flexibility and the fact that most of the most visited and largest websites use cookies, they are almost unavoidable. Disabling cookies will not allow the user access to the most widespread and used websites including YouTube, Gmail, Yahoo, and others. Here are some tips that can ensure you surf without worries, but with the help of cookies:

  • Customize your browser cookie settings to reflect a comfortable level of cookie security for you.
  • If you are the only person using the computer, you can optionally set long expiration periods for the storage of browsing history and personal access data.
  • • If you share computer access, you may consider setting your browser to delete individual browsing data each time you close the browser. This is an option to access websites that place cookies and delete any visiting information when you close your browsing session.
  • Constantly installing and updating anti-spyware applications.

Many spyware detections and prevention applications include the detection of website attacks. Thus, it prevents the browser from accessing websites that might exploit browser vulnerabilities or download dangerous software. Make sure your browser is always up to date. Many cookie-based attacks are made by exploiting weaknesses in old versions of browsers.
