What is a cookie?

Cookie ("cookie browser" or "HTTP cookie") is a small file of letters and numbers that is stored on any terminal with internet access (computer, mobile phone, tablet etc.) and is installed by request issued by a web-server to a browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Chrome).

Please note: Cookies do not contain software, viruses or spyware and can not access information on the user's hard drive. Cookies do not require personal information and do not personally identify Internet users.

A cookie is made up of names and content, the duration of which is determined, and can be accessed again by the web-server when a user returns to the website associated with that web-server.


Cookies are classified into:

  • Session cookies - these are temporarily stored in the browser history that stores them until the user exits the site or closes the browser window.

  •  Persistent cookies - These are stored, depending on the preset time, on the hard drive of a computer or equipment. Persistent cookies include those placed on the user’s hard disk  by a web-site from a domain other than the one the user is currently visiting - known as "third party cookies" - that can be used anonymously to store a user's interests, so so that advertising is delivered as relevant and targeted to users as possible.


What are the benefits of cookies?

A cookie contains information linking users to a particular website. If a browser accesses that web-server again, it can read the already stored information and respond accordingly. Cookies provide users with a pleasant browsing experience and support the efforts of many websites to provide user-friendly services: ex - online privacy preferences, site language options, shopping carts, or relevant advertising.


What is the lifetime of a cookie?

The life of a cookie may be different depending on the purpose for which it is placed. There are single-session cookies - they are no longer retained after the user leaves the site, or permanent cookies - they are retained and reused whenever the user returns to that site but can be deleted at any time by the user.


What are cookies placed by third parties?

Certain parts of content on certain sites may be placed on the website accessed by third parties through banners, boxes or links - and all of these tools may contain cookies. They are called "third party cookies" because they are not placed by the owner of that website, and third-party vendors are subject to the site's current laws and privacy policies.

Advertiser cookies

Other cookies of third parties

On some sites, third parties can set their own anonymous cookies in order to track the success of an application, or to customize an application. This site can not access the installed third parties cookies, just as third parties can not access the cookies owned by this site.


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 your browser until the cookie expires or is deleted. The cookie stores important information that enhances your Internet browsing experience (for example, the settings of the language in which you want to access a site, keeping a user logged in to your web-mail account, online banking security, keeping your products in the shopping cart).


Why are Internet cookies important?

Cookies are the central focus of the Internet's efficient operation, helping to generate a friendly browsing experience and tailored to the preferences and interests of each user. Denying or disabling cookies can make some sites impossible to use.

Denying or disabling cookies does not mean you will not get online advertising - just that 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 through an account):

Content and services tailored to user preferences - news, weather, sports, maps, governmental public services, entertainment sites and travel services.

Offers tailored to users' interests - remembering passwords, language preferences (Ex: showing search results in Romanian).

Retaining Child Protection Filters for Content on the Internet (Family Mode Options, Safe Search Functions)

Limit ad serving frequency - limit the number of impressions of an ad for a particular user on a site.

Provide more relevant advertising for 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 (eg through search engines, directly from other websites etc.). Websites run these analyzes of their use to improve sites for the benefit of users.


Security and confidentiality issues

Cookies are NOT Viruses! They use plain text formats. They are not made of pieces of code so they can not be executed and can not run. Consequently, they can not duplicate or replicate on other networks to run or replicate again. Because they can not perform these functions, they can not be considered viruses.

Cookies can nevertheless be used for negative purposes. Because it stores information about users' 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, shelf life, and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular site.


Other security issues related to cookies.

Because identity protection is very valuable and is the right of every Internet user, it is advisable to know what problems can create cookies. Because their information is constantly transmitted in both directions between the browser and the website, if an attacker or unauthorized person interferes with the data transmission path, the information contained in the cookie can be intercepted. Although very rare, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an non-encrypted network (for example, an unsecured WiFi network).

Other cookie-based attacks involve incorrect cookie settings on the servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to mislead browsers to send information via unsecured channels. Attackers then use the information for purposes 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 the fact that most sites use cookies, they are almost inevitable. Disabling cookies will not allow the user access to the most popular and used websites including Youtube, Gmail, Yahoo and others. Here are some tips that can help you navigate without any worries with the acceptance of cookies:

Customize your browser settings for cookies to achieve a comfortable level of cookie security. If you do not mind cookies and you are the only person using your computer, you can set expiration dates to store your browsing history and personal access data. If you share your computer access, you can consider the browser setting to delete individual browsing data each time you close your browser.

Install and constantly update your anti-spyware applications.

Many of the spyware detection applications include detection of site attacks. This can prevent 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-based attacks are exploited 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 greatest websites on the Internet - 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 declining cookies

The browser can be set that these cookies are no longer accepted, or you can set your browser to accept cookies from specific sites. But for example, if you are not registered that you have accepted 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 your browser's "options" or "favorites" menu.
