Cookies are used to produce aggregate anonymous statistics that help us understand how our web sites are useful to a user, allowing us to refine their structure and content, excluding the identification of the user .
What cookies do we use?

Fixed files remain on the user’s device for some time within the cookie parameters or until they are manually deleted by the user.

Why are cookies important to the Internet?
Cookies are the main focus of an effective Internet, helping to make it easy for users to navigate, tailored to each user’s preferences and interests. Some sites may become unusable due to the refusal or deactivation of cookies. Refusing or disabling cookies does not mean that you will not receive online advertising, only that it will no longer be able to monitor your preferences and interests that stand out through your behavior.
• Examples of important uses of cookies (which do not require authentication of the user in a profile):
• Content and services tailored to the user’s preferences – categories of products and services.
• User-friendly offers – remembering passwords.
• Keeping child protection filters related to content on the Internet (family mode options, safe search features).
• Frequency capping – Limit the number of times an ad is shown to a specific user on a site.
• Provide more relevant content to the user.
• Measurement, optimization and analysis features – such as validating a certain level of traffic to a site, what kind of content is viewed, and how a user reaches the site (for example, through search engines, directly from other sites, etc.). Sites perform these analyzes on how they are used to improve themselves for the benefit of users.
Security and privacy issues
Cookies use plain text [plain text]. They are not composed of pieces of code and therefore cannot be applied or triggered automatically. Therefore, they cannot be duplicated or reproduced on other networks for re-activation or reproduction. Because they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.
However, cookies can be used for negative purposes. Because they store information about the user’s preferences and navigation history, both on a specific site and on several other sites, cookies can be used as a type of spyware. This is known to many anti-spyware products and they constantly mark cookies for deletion as part of the anti-virus removal / scanning procedures.
In general, browsers have built-in data security settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, validity, and automatic deletion after a user has visited a particular site.
Other security issues related to cookies:
Since identity protection is a great value and a right for every Internet user, it is advisable to know what kind of problems cookies can create. In order to transmit information in both directions, information between the browser and the site, if a hacker or unauthorized person intervenes while transferring data, the information contained in cookies may be intercepted.
Even very rarely, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (eg: unsecured WiFi network). Other cookie-based attacks include incorrect cookie settings on the servers. If a site does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, hackers can exploit this vulnerability to prevent browsers from sending information through unsecured channels. The hackers then use the information to gain unauthorized access to certain sites. It is very important to be careful when choosing the right way to protect your personal information.
Helpful tips for safe and responsible cookie-based navigation.
Here are some helpful tips that can help you navigate your cookies safely:
• Customize your browser settings for cookies so that you reach a level that is comfortable for you regarding cookie security.
• If cookies do not interfere with you and you are the only person using the computer, you can set long periods to store your navigation history and personal access data.
• If you share your computer with another person, you may want to consider setting up your browser to delete the individual navigation data each time you close your browser. This is a way to access websites that install cookies and to delete any business information when you finish the navigation session. • Continually install and update your spyware protection applications. Many spyware detection and prevention applications involve the detection of site attacks. This prevents the browser from reaching sites that could exploit browser vulnerabilities or download malicious software.
Make sure your browser is always up-to-date.
Many cookie attacks are exploited by exploiting the weaknesses of older browser versions. Cookies are everywhere and cannot be avoided if you want to enjoy access to the best and largest local or international websites on the Internet. If you have a clear understanding of how they work and the benefits they bring, you can take the necessary security measures so you can navigate the Internet with confidence.
