What is a “cookie”?
An “Internet cookie” (a term known as “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file consisting of letters and numbers that will be stored on your computer, handheld or other equipment from a user that is accessing the Internet.
The cookie is installed by request issued by a server to a web browser (eg Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome) and is completely “passive” (doesn’t contain software viruses or spyware and can not access information on the user’s hard drive).
A cookie consists of 2 parts: the name and the content or cookie value. Moreover, the life of a cookie is determined; technically, only the web server that sent the cookie can access it again when the user returns to the webserver respectively associated website.
Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, don’t personally identify Internet users.
• There are two broad types of cookies:
– Session Cookies – these are temporarily stored in the cookies file of your Web browser for it to store them until the user exits the website in question or closes the browser window (eg when logging in / logging out a webmail account or social networks).
– Persistent Cookies – these are stored on the hard drive of a computer or device (and generally depend on the default cookie lifetime). Persistent cookies include those placed from another website than the current one visited by the user at the time – known as “third party cookies (cookies placed by third parties) – which can be used anonymously to store a user’s interests, so that relevant advertising would be delivered to users.
What are the advantages of cookies?
A cookie contains information linking a web-browser (the user) and a specific web server (website). If a web browser that accesses the server again, it can read information already stored and react accordingly.
Cookies provide users an enjoyable experience browsing various websites and support efforts to provide comfortable services to users: eg – online privacy preferences, language options on the website or relevant advertising.
What are cookies placed by third parties?
Certain sections of content from some sites may be provided by third parties / suppliers (eg news box, a video or advertisement). These third parties may also place cookies through the site and are called “third party cookies” because they are not placed by the owner of the website in question. Third-party suppliers must also comply with the applicable law and the privacy policies of the website owner.

– Offers tailored to the users interests- retaining passwords, language preferences (eg displaying the search results căuărilor in a specific language).
– Withholding filters to protect children on the Internet content (family mode options, Safe Search functions).
– Limiting commercials broadcast frequency – limiting the number of display times of an advertisement for a particular user on a website.

Other cookies related security issues
Because identity protection is very valuable and is the right of every internet user, you should be aware what 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 data transmission, the information contained in the cookie can be intercepted. Although rare, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (eg, an unsecured WiFi network).
Other attacks imply wrong cookies 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 insecure channels. The attackers then uses the information for the purposes of accessing certain sites unauthorized. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most suitable method to protect personal information.
