A cookie is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, that will be stored on a computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user through which the Internet is accessed.

Cookies are installed by request from a web server to a browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, chrome, etc).

Once installed, cookies have a determined lifespan, remaining “passive”, in the sense that they do not contain software, viruses or spyware and will not access the information on the IT equipment on which they were installed.

A cookie consists of two parts: the name of the cookie and the content or value of the cookie.

From a technical point of view, only the web server that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the web page associated with that web server.

6. Browser settings for Cookies, Deleting Cookies , Ștergerea Cookie-urilor

Disabling and refusing to receive cookies can make this website difficult to visit, leading to limitations in its use.
If the use of cookies is not annoying and the computer or technical equipment used to browse this website is used by only one person, long deadlines may be set for storing your browsing history.

If the computer or the technical equipment used to browse this website is used by more than one person, the setting for deleting individual browsing data each time the browser is closed may be considered.
All modern browsers offer the ability to change cookie settings. These settings can be accessed, as a rule, in the “option” section or in the “preferences” menu of your browser.
In general, an application used to access web pages allows you to save cookies on the terminal by default. These settings can be changed so that the automatic administration of Cookies is blocked by the web browser or the user is informed every time Cookies are sent to this terminal. Detailed information on the possibilities and ways of managing cookies can be found in the settings area of the application (web browser). Restricting the use of cookies may affect certain functionalities of the website.

7. Duration of cookie’s usage

The lifetime of a cookie can vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed.

There are the following categories of cookies that also determine their lifespan:

Session cookie – a cookie that is automatically deleted when the user closes their browser.

Persistent or fixed cookie – a cookie that remains stored in the user’s terminal until it reaches a certain expiration date (which may be in a few minutes, days or several years in the future) or until it is deleted by the user at any time through browser settings.

Flash cookie – if the user has Adobe Flash installed on their computer, small files may be stored in that computer’s memory by websites that contain Flash items (such as videos) and may be used for the same purposes as common cookies. When regular cookies are deleted through the functions of browsers, flash cookies are not affected. Thus, a website that uses flash cookies may recognize a user on a new visit, if the data specific to the deleted cookies were also retained in a flash cookie.    

8. Security and privacy issues

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 auto-run. As a result, they cannot be duplicated or replicated on other networks to run or replicate. Because they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.
       Cookie-urile pot fi totuși folosite pentru scopuri negative. Deoarece stochează informații despre preferințele și istoricul de navigare al utilizatorilor, atât pe un anume site cât și pe mai multe alte siteuri, cookie-urile pot fi folosite ca o formă de Spyware. Multe produse anti-spyware sunt conștiente de acest fapt și în mod constant marchează cookie-urile pentru a fi șterse în cadrul procedurilor de ștergere/scanare anti-virus/anti-spyware.

In general, browsers have integrated privacy settings that provide different levels of acceptance of cookies, validity period and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular site.
Other security issues 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 can create. Because through them information is constantly transmitted in both directions between the browser and the website, if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes during the transmission of data, the information contained in the cookie may be intercepted.
Deși foarte rar, acest lucru se poate întâmpla daca browserul se conectează la server folosind o rețea necriptată (ex: o retea WiFi nesecurizată).

       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. Attackers then use the information in order to gain unauthorized access to certain sites. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most appropriate method of personal information protection.

9. Tips for safe and responsible browsing based on cookies. Third party cookies Modulele cookie de la terți

Some of our pages display content from external providers, such as YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

In order to view third-party content, you must first accept their specific terms and conditions – including their cookie policies, which we cannot control.

But if you do not view that content, no third-party cookies will be installed for you.
Due to their flexibility and the fact that the most of the most visited sites, and the largest ones, use cookies, they are almost inevitable. Disabling cookies will not allow user access to the most common and used sites including YouTube, Gmail, Yahoo and others.
Here are some tips that can ensure that you navigate worry-free but with the help of cookies:

  • -Customize your browser settings for cookies that reflect a comfortable level of security for you;
  • If you do not mind cookies, you are the only person using the computer, you can set long expiration dates for storing your browsing history and personal access data;
  • - If you share access to your computer, you can consider setting your browser to clear individual browsing data each time you close your browser. This is a way to access the sites that place cookies and to delete any visit information at the end of the browsing session;
  • - Install and constantly update your antispyware applications. Many of the spyware detection and prevention applications include site attack detection. This prevents the browser from accessing websites that could exploit browser vulnerabilities or download malicious software.
  • -Make sure your browser is always up to date. Manu cookie-bases attacks are exploied 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 how they operate and the benefits they bring, you can take the necessary security measures so that you can surf the internet with confidence.
     Disabling and refusing to receive cookies can make certain sites impractical or difficult to visit and use. Also, the refusal to accept cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive/see online advertising.
      It is possible to set in the browser so that these cookies are no longer accepted or you can set the browser to accept cookies from a specific site. But, for example, if you are not registered using cookies, you will not be able to leave comments.

     All modern browsers offer the ability to change cookie settings. These settings are usually found in the “option” or “preferences” menu of your browser.
