2. What are Cookies?
A “Cookie”, also known as an “internet cookie”, “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” is a small file made of numbers and letters, that is stored on the computer or the device used by a user to access the internet.
This cookie is installed by the request from a web server to a browser. Depending on which browser the user is using (whether Safari, Edge, Chrome or Mozilla Firefox), the cookie is passive. A cookie does not have software programs such as viruses or spyware, therefore it cannot damage your device or computer. Also, the cookie does not have the ability to access information on the user’s hard drive.
Good to know: A cookie by itself does not request personal information for later use. Also, generally, a cookie does not personally identify an internet user.
3. What is the role of Cookies?
In most cases, Cookies help various sites and platform to offer users more useful and clearer services (depending on their interest and preferences). These files allow recognizing the user’s terminal and presenting the content in a relevant manner, adapted to the user’s preferences. Cookies are also used to prepare aggregate anonymous statistics that allow understanding the manner in which a user benefits from the site pages, making it possible to improve their content and structure, while excluding the personal identification of the user.
Important to know: a user has the ability to delete cookies at any time. They just need to use the settings of the browser they use to browse the Internet.
If you want to know how you can change the settings of a browser, you can visit the links below: Cookie settings in Internet Explorer; Cookie settings in Firefox; Cookie settings in Chrome; Cookie settings in Safari. For the settings of cookies generated by third parties, you can also consult the site: http://www.youronlinechoices.com/ro/
4. What Cookies do we use?
We use two types of Cookies: per session and fixed. The latter are temporary files that remain in the user’s terminal until the session ends or the application (the web browser) is closed. Fixed files remain on the user’s terminal for a period set in the parameters of the Cookie or until they are manually deleted by the user.
The platform use session is set to expire after 1 hour, meaning that, after 1 hour, the person will be automatically logged out from the platform and will have to repeat the login process.
The Platform uses the Google Analytics statistical analysis cookies. These cookies are used to collect information about the manner in which users interact with our website, regarding the general behavior of all users, information that will be analyzed to help us make improvements and cannot be used to identify users individually.

7. Why are cookies important for the internet?
Cookies are the core of the efficient functioning of the internet, helping to generate a user-friendly browsing experience, adapted to the preferences and interests of every user. The refusal or deactivation of cookies can make certain sites/platforms impossible to use.
The refusal or deactivation of cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertisement (such as the advertisement of products on other sites), but only that it can no longer take into account your preferences and interests, as highlighted by your browsing behavior.
8. Security and confidentiality issues
Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text formats. They are not composed of code fragments, therefore they cannot be run and cannot autorun. Therefore, they cannot duplicate or replicate in other networks in order to autorun or replicate again. As they cannot execute such functions, they cannot be considered to be viruses.
However, cookies can be used for malicious purposes. As they store information about the preferences and browsing history of users on both a certain site and several other sites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this fact and mark permanently the cookies for deletion as part of the anti-virus/anti-spyware deletion/scanning procedures.
As the protection of identity is extremely valuable and a right of every internet user, it is recommended to be aware of any issues that may be caused by cookies. Because they are used to transmit permanently, in both directions, information between a browser and a website, if a hacker or an unauthorized person intervenes in the data transmission path, the information contained by cookies can be intercepted.
Make sure that your browser is always updated. Many of the attacks based on cookies exploit the weaknesses of older versions of browsers.
All modern browsers offer the possibility to change cookie settings. These settings can be found, as a rule, in the “options” or “preferences” menu of your browser. If you wish to find out more information about cookies and their uses, we recommend the following link:
