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

1. What is a “cookie”?
An “Internet Cookie” (also known as a “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file, made up of letters and numbers, that will be stored on your computer, mobile device or other equipment of a user accessing the Internet.
The cookie is sent by a request issued by the web-server on which the site is hosted, to the user’s browser (eg: Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome etc.) and is completely “passive” in the sense that it does not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the user’s hard drive.
A cookie is made up of 2 parts: the name and content or value of the cookie that is uniquely associated with the domain that is hosted by the site that sent it to the user’s browser. Furthermore, the cookie’s lifetime is determined and only the webserver that sent the cookie can access it again, and only when the user returns to the site associated with the respective server.
Cookies do not ask for personal information in order to be used nor can they personally identify Internet users.
2. Types of cookies
Cookies specific to an online session
Web pages have no memory. A user browsing from one web page to another will be considered by the website as a new user. Session-specific cookies usually store an identifier that allows the user to switch from one web page to another without having to enter the identifying information (username, password, etc.) each time. Such cookies are widely used by commercial sites, for example, to keep track of the products added by a user in the shopping cart. When the user visits a particular page of a product catalog and selects certain products, the cookie retains the selected products and adds them to the shopping cart, which will contain all the selected products when the user wishes to leave the page.
Session-specific cookies are stored in the user’s computer memory only during an Internet browsing session and are automatically deleted when the browser is closed. They can also become inaccessible if the session has been inactive for a certain period of time (usually 20 minutes).
Permanent, persistent or stored cookies
Persistent cookies are stored on the user’s computer level and are not deleted when the browsing session is closed. These cookies may retain user preferences for a particular website, so that they may be used in other Internet browsing sessions.
In addition to authentication information, persistent cookies may also contain details about the language and theme selected on a particular website, preferences regarding a site’s menu, favorite pages within a site, etc. When the user first visits a site, it is presented in the default mode. Subsequently, the user selects a number of preferences, which are then retained by the cookies and used when the user returns to the site. For example, a website offers its content in several languages. At the first visit, the user selects English, and the site retains this preference in a cookie. When the user visits the site again, the content will be automatically displayed in English.
Persistent cookies can be used to identify individual users and thus to analyze the online behavior of users. They can provide information about the number of visitors to a website, the time (on average) spent on a particular page, and, in general, the performance of a website. These cookies are configured to be able to track users’ activities for a long period of time, in some cases even for years.
If the user has Adobe Flash installed on the computer, small files can be stored in the memory of that computer by websites that contain Flash elements (such as video clips). These files are known as “local shared objects” or “flash cookies” and can be used for the same purposes as regular cookies.
When regular cookies are cleared through the functions of a browser, flash cookies are not affected. Thus, a website that uses flash cookies can recognize a user on the occasion of a new visit, if the specifics of the deleted cookies have been retained in a flash cookie.
Because flash cookies are not stored in the user’s computer in the same way that ordinary cookies are stored, they are more difficult to identify and delete. Banks and financial websites use such cookies for this very reason. Because they are difficult to identify, these cookies are stored on users’ computers to allow user authentication and prevent fraud, as potential offenders may have the username and password for authentication, but do not have access to the user’s computer. Thus, cookies act as a second level of authentication, in addition to the username and password.

7. The importance of cookies for the Internet
Cookies are the central point of the efficient functioning of the Internet, helping to generate a friendly browsing experience, tailored to the preferences and interests of each user. Refusing or disabling cookies can make some websites impossible to use.

Examples of important uses of cookies (which do not require user authentication through an account):
- Content and services tailored to user preferences – categories of news, weather, sports, maps, public and government services, entertainment sites and travel services.

- Security and privacy issues
8. Security and privacy issues
Cookies are NOT viruses! They use a plain text format. They are not made up of pieces of code, so they cannot be executed or self-run. As a result, you cannot duplicate or replicate on other networks to run or replicate again. Since they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.
However, cookies can be used for negative purposes. Because it stores information about users’ browsing preferences and browsing history, both on a particular website and on several websites, cookies can be used as a form of spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this fact and are constantly flagging cookies for deletion in anti-virus / anti-spyware removal / scanning procedures.
Generally, browsers have integrated privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, validity period and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular site.
9. Other security aspects related to cookies
Given that identity protection is very important and represents the right of every Internet user, it is advisable to know what are the possible problems that may arise in relation to cookies. Since through them the information between the browser and the website is constantly transmitted in both directions, if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes during the data transmission, the information contained in the cookie can be intercepted. Although this is very rare, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (eg an unsecured Wi-Fi network). Other cookie-based attacks involve incorrect cookie settings on servers.
If a website does not require the browser to use encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to trick browsers into sending information through unsecured channels. The attackers then use the information in order to gain unauthorized access to certain sites. It is very important to be careful when choosing the most appropriate method of protecting personal information.
