Cookie policy

This website uses its own cookies and third-party cookies to provide visitors with a better browsing experience and services customized to everyone’s needs and interests. Please find below the full list of third-party cookies.

This website also includes links to third-party websites; once these links are accessed, users are subject to the policy of that website.

Cookies play an important role in facilitating the access and delivery of multiple services the user enjoys on the Internet, such as:

  • Customize certain settings such as: the language in which a site is viewed, the currency in which certain prices or fees are expressed, storage of options regarding various products (measures, other details, etc.).
  • Cookies provide site owners with valuable feedback on how their sites are used by users so they can make them more effective and accessible to users.
  • Allow multimedia or other applications from other sites to be included in a specific site to create a more valuable, useful, and enjoyable browsing experience.

What is a ”cookie”?

An “Internet Cookie” (also known as “cookie browser” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file with letters and numbers that is stored on the user’s computer, mobile terminal or other equipment on which the Internet is accessed. The cookie is installed by a web server’s browser (eg Internet Explorer, Chrome, Mozilla Firefox) and is completely “passive” (it does not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the user’s hard drive).

A cookie consists of two parts: the name and the content or the value of the cookie. Furthermore, the duration of a cookie is limited; technically, only the web server that has sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the website associated with that web server.

Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, do not identify themselves Internet users. There are 2 large cookie categories:
• Session cookies – they are temporarily stored in the web browser’s cookie folder to save them until the user exits the site or closes the browser window (e.g. when logging on / off webmail or social networking account).
• Persistent cookies – they are stored on the hard drive of a computer or device (and it generally depends on the default cookie lifetime). Persistent cookies include those placed on a website other than the one the user is currently visiting – known as ‘third party cookies’ – which can be used anonymously to store a user’s interests so as to deliver relevant advertising to users.

What are the advantages of cookies?

Cookies are managed by web servers. The life of a cookie may vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed. Some cookies are used exclusively for one session (session cookies) and are no longer retained once the user has left the website whereas some cookies are retained and re-used whenever the user returns to that site (‘permanent cookie’). However, the user can delete cookies at any time from the browser settings.

What type of information is stored and accessed via cookies?

Cookies store information in a small text file that allows a website to recognize a browser. The webserver will recognize the browser until the cookie expires or is deleted. The cookie stores important information that enhances Internet browsing experience (e.g., user session id, referral page, current time, etc.).

Why are cookies important for the internet?

Cookies are the central focus for an effective Internet usage, helping to generate a friendly browsing experience and adjusted to each user’s preferences and interests. Denying or disabling cookies can make some sites impossible to use. Denying or disabling cookies does not mean you will not receive online advertising – it means 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 via an account):

  • Customized content and services depending on the user’s preferences
  • Offers customized to the user’s interests – language preferences (For example, displaying search results in Romanian).
  • 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 a website (for example, via search engines, directly, from other websites, etc.). Websites run these analyzes of their use in order to improve web sites for the users’ benefit.

Security and privacy issues 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 auto-run. Consequently, they 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. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this and they constantly mark cookies to be deleted in anti-virus / anti-spyware removal / scanning procedures.

In general, browsers have built-in privacy settings providing different levels of cookie acceptance, validity, and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular site.

How can I stop cookies?

Disabling and refusing to receive cookies can make some sites inaccessible or difficult to visit and use. 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.

All modern browsers provide the ability to change cookie settings. These settings are usually found in your browser’s “options” or “preferences” menu.

The following links may be useful to understand these settings; otherwise you can use the browser’s “help” option for more details.
