Our website uses its own cookies to provide visitors with a much better browsing experience and information tailored to everyone’s needs and interests.

What is a “COOKIE”?

A "Internet Cookie " (also known as "cookie browser" or "HTTP cookie" or simply "cookie") is a small file of letters and numbers that will be stored on your computer, mobile or other equipment of a user on which the Internet is accessed. The cookie is installed through a browser-based web-server request (e.g.. Internet Explorer, Chrome and Mozilla) 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. The duration of a cookie is limited; 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 data to be used and, in most cases, do not identify Internet users as individuals.

There are several categories of cookies and similar technologies:

  1. Strictly required (type 1) – these cookie modules are absolutely necessary for web pages functions. Without such cookie modules you cannot fully access the content of our website and you cannot benefit from all the information we provide.
  2. Operational (type 2) – they facilitate the use and improve the functions of the webpages. Such technologies help, for example, to preserve the language preferences in which you choose to view the content of the website.
  3. Performance cookie modules (type 3) – collects information about how you use the webpages.  This allows us to identify which parts of the site are popular and in this way we can analyze the contents to improve it.
  4. Third-party cookies (type 4) - certain content sections on sites may be provided through third parties / providers (e.g. 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 the applicable law and the site's privacy policies.

Which are the advantages of the cookies?

A cookie contains information linking a web browser (user) and a specific webserver (website). If a browser accesses that webserver again, it can read the information already stored and react accordingly, and it is no longer needed to set the user's preferences on this site at each visit Cookies provide users with a good browsing experience and support the efforts of many websites to provide user-friendly services: ex - retaining online privacy preferences, site language options, giving users the ability to enjoy the experience of an optimal viewing of the site's content.
 

What is the lifetime of a cookie?

The cookies are managed by web-servers. The lifetime of a cookie can vary significantly, depending on the purpose it is placed for. Some cookies are used exclusively for a single session (the session cookies) and cannot be retained once the user has left the website, and some cookies are retained and reused each time the user is returning to that website (the permanent cookies). Nevertheless, the cookies can be deleted by a user at any time from the browser settings. 
 

Why are the important for Internet?

The cookies are the central core of the effective operation of Internet, helping generate a friendly browsing experience and adapted to the preferences and interests of each user. The refusal or disabling of cookies can make certain websites impossible to use.

The refusal or the disabling of the cookies does not mean you will not receive online advertising – just that it will no longer be able to keep track of your preferences and interests, highlighted by your browsing behavior

 

Are the cookies safe? Security and confidentiality-related issues 

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 nor replicate on other networks to run or replicate again. Because they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.

Cookies can still be used for negative purposes. Because they store information about user 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.

Since identity protection is very valuable and is the right of every internet user, it is advisable to know what problems cookies can generate. In order to transmit constant information in both ways between the browser and the website, if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes during the data transmission, the information contained in the cookie can be intercepted. Although, very rarely this can happen very rarely, if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (e.g. an unsecured Wi-Fi network).

Other cookie-based attacks involve wrong cookie settings on the servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to "fool" browsers to send information via insecure channels. Attackers then use the information for the purpose of unauthorized access to certain sites. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most appropriate method of protecting personal data.

Due to their flexibility and to the fact that the majority of the most visited websites are using cookies, they are almost inevitable. The disabling of cookies will not allow the user to access the most popular websites and most used sites like YouTube, Gmail, Yahoo and others.

 

Measures which can ensure that you can browse / navigate without any concern using cookies

Customize your cookies browser settings to emphasize a comfortable level for your cookie security.

If the cookies do not bother you and you are the only person using your computer, you can set long terms of expiration for storing the browsing history and personal access data.

If you share the access to your computer, you can consider setting the browser to delete your individual browsing data each time you close the browser. This is the way to access the websites placing the cookies and to delete any user’s information when closing of the browsing session. 

 
Install and update the anti-spyware applications constantly
 

Many of the spyware detection and prevention applications include the detection of the attacks on the websites. This prevents the browser from accessing websites which can exploit the browser’s vulnerabilities or download dangerous software. Ensure that you have the browser always updated. Many of the cookie-based attacks are made by exploiting the vulnerable points of the old versions of the browsers.

The cookies are everywhere and cannot be avoided if you wish to enjoy the access to the best and biggest Internet websites – 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 the internet with confidence.

How can the cookies be stopped?

Disabling and refusing to receive cookies can make the site inaccessible or difficult to visit and use. Also, 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. But, for example, if you are not registered using cookies, you will not be able to leave comments. All modern browsers offer the option to change cookie settings. These settings are usually in the "options" or in the "preferences" menu of the browser used.

In order to understand such settings, the following links can be useful, otherwise you can use the option “help” of the browser for further details.
