What is a cookie?
An "Internet Cookie" (also known as "cookie browser" or "HTTP cookie" or simply "cookie") is a small file of letters and numbers which will be stored on your computer or on other equipment connected to the Internet.
The cookie is installed through a web browser request from a browser (eg. Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely "passive" (does not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the user's hard drive)
A cookie consists of 2 parts: the name and the content or the cookie value. Furthermore, the duration of a cookie is determined; technically, only the web server that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the website associated with that web server. Cookies do not require personal information to be used and, do not identify internet users.
There are 2 categories of cookies:
Session cookies - they are temporarily stored in the browser's web cookies folder so that the browser saves them until the user exits from the specific site or closes the browser window (for example when logging on / off on a webmail or social networking account).
Persistent cookies - they are stored on the hard drive of a computer or a device (and generally depend 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 memorize the interests of an user, in order to deliver the most relevant advertising for that user.
What are the benefits of cookies?
A cookie contains information linking a web browser (user) and a specific web-server (website). If a browser accesses that web-server again, it can read the information already stored. Cookies provide users a pleasant browsing experience and it support the efforts of many websites to provide user-quality services, like online privacy preferences, site language options, shopping carts, or relevant advertising.
Denying or disabling cookies does not mean that you will not get online advertising. You will receive online advertising that will no longer respect your preferencies or interests.
What is a cookie's life time?
Cookies are managed by web servers. A cookie's life time may vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed. Some cookies are used only for one session (session cookies) and are no longer retained once the user has left the website and some cookies are retained and reused each time the user returns to that site ('cookie- permanent '). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time through browser settings.
How cookies are used by this site.
A visit on this site may place cookies for purposes of:
- Site performance cookies
- Visitor analysis cookies
- Cookies for geotargetting
- Recording cookies
- Cookies for advertising
- Advertiser cookies
The site uses Google Analytics cookies to collect information about how visitors use this site and to detect possible browsing issues. Google Analytics stores information about the pages visited like how long the site was browsed, how the site was accessed, and the sections accessed within the pages. No personal information is stored, so this information can not be used to identify the user.
This type of cookie retains the user's preferences on this site, so they no longer need to be set at every site visit.
- Volume settings for video player
- The video streaming speed which the website is compatible with
Visitor analysis cookies
Each time a user visits this site, the analytics soft provided by a third party generates a user analysis cookie. This cookie tells us if you have visited this website before. The browser will tell us if you have this cookie and, if not, we will generate one. This allows us to monitor the unique users who visit us and how often they do it.
As long as you are not registered on this website, these cookies cannot be used to identify physical persons, they can only be used for statistic purposes.
If you are registered, we will also know the details you have provided for us, such as the e-mail address or username – these being submitted to the confidentiality and terms from “Terms and Conditions, Confidentiality Policy” as well as from the legislation terms regarding the personal data protection.
Cookies for geotargeting
These cookies are used by a software which establishes which country you are from. They are completely anonymous and are used only for targeting the content.
Security and confidentiality:
Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text formats. They are not formed of pieces of code so they cannot be executed or auto ran. Consequently, they cannot duplicate or replicate on other networks to run or replicate again. Because they cannot fulfill these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.
Cookies can still be used on negative purposes. Because they stock information about the preferences and navigation history of the users, both on a certain website and other websites, cookies can be used as Spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this fact and constantly mark the cookies to be erased during deleting/ anti virus scanning/ anti-spyware procedures.
Generally, browsers have integrated confidentiality settings which provide different level of cookies acceptance, validity period and automatic deleting after the user visited a certain web site.
Other aspects of security connected to cookies:
Due to the fact that identity protection is valuable and represents the right of every online user, it is important to be known the problems that cookies can create. Because information is sent continuously between the browser and website through cookies, if an attacker or an unauthorized person interferes in the process of data transmitting, the information contained by the cookies can be intercepted.
This can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (ex. a WiFi connection which is not secured).
Other attacks based on cookies imply wrong cookies settings on the servers. If a web site does not ask the browser to use only encrypted channels, the attackers can use this vulnerability to fool the browser in sending information through unsecured channels. Attackers then utilize the information in purposes of accessing, unauthorized, certain websites. It is important to be careful in choosing the right method to protect personal information.
Advice for safe and responsible navigation, based on cookies:
Here are some advices which can ensure safe navigation, but using cookies:
- Personalize your browser settings in regards to cookies, to reflect a comfortable level for you, of cookies security.
- If you do not mind cookies and you are the only person using the computer, you can set long expiration terms for the navigation browsing history and personal access data.
- If you share the computer access, you can take into consideration the browsing settings, to delete the individual navigation data every time you close the browser. This is an option for accessing the websites that place cookies and deleting any information regarding this visit at the end of the session.
- Install and constantly update antispyware programs.
Many of the detection and prevention antispyware programs include detecting website attacks. This way, they can stop the browser to access websites that can exploit the browser’s vulnerabilities or download dangerous software.
Make sure your browser is always up to date:
Many of the cookies based attackers are realized by exploiting the weak points of the old browser versions.
