Please read the following information carefully:

This website uses its own and third-party cookies to provide visitors with a much better browsing experience and services tailored to their needs and interests.

In what we call “web 2.0”, “cookies” play an important role in facilitating access to and delivery of multiple services that the user enjoys on the Internet, such as:

WHAT IS A “COOKIE”?

An “Internet Cookie” (also known as a “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, that will be stored on your computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user from which the Internet is accessed.

The cookie is installed by a web server’s request to a browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely “passive” (does not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access information on your hard drive user).

A cookie consists of 2 parts: the name and the content or value of the cookie. Moreover, the duration of the existence 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 themselves do not require personal information in order to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify internet users.

THERE ARE 2 LARGE CATEGORIES OF COOKIES:

WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF COOKIES?

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

WHAT IS THE LIFE OF A COOKIE?

Cookies are managed by web servers. The lifetime of a cookie can vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed. Some cookies are used exclusively for a single 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 website (‘cookies- permanent hatred ‘). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time via browser settings.

WHAT ARE THIRD PARTY COOKIES?

Certain sections of content on some sites may be provided through third parties / providers (news box, video or advertisement). These third parties may also place cookies through the site and they are called “third party cookies” because they are not placed by the owner of that website. Third party providers must also comply with applicable law and the privacy policies of the site owner.

SECURITY AND CONFIDENTIALITY ISSUES

Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code so they cannot be executed or 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.

However, cookies may 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 constantly mark cookies to be deleted during anti-virus / anti-spyware deletion / scanning procedures.

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:

As 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 an unauthorized person intervenes during the transmission of data, the information contained in the cookie may be intercepted.

Although very rare, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (an unsecured WiFi network).

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 to gain unauthorized access to certain sites. It is very important that you choose the most appropriate method of protecting your personal information.

Tips for safe and responsible browsing based on cookies.

Due to their flexibility and the fact that most of the most visited and largest sites use cookies, they are almost inevitable. Disabling cookies will not allow the user to access the most widespread and used sites including Youtube, Gmail, Yahoo and others.

Here are some tips that can help you navigate without worries but with the help of cookies:

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.

Many cookie-based attacks are exploited 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.
