2. What is a cookie?
A “Cookie Internet” (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, other equipment of a user accessing the Internet.
The cookie is sent through a request from the web server on which the website is hosted, to the user’s browser (Ex: Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome, etc.) and is completely “passive” in the sense that does not contain software, viruses or spyware, nor can it 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, and is uniquely associated with the domain on which the website is hosted which sent it to the user’s browser (ex: www.danubiu.ro). Moreover, the duration of a cookie is determined and only the webserver that sent the cookie can access it again, and only when the user returns to the website associated with the respective webserver.
Cookies do not require personal information to be used and can not personally identify Internet users.
There are two main categories of cookies:
• Session cookies – they are temporarily stored in the web browser’s cookie folder until the user leaves the site or closes the browser window.
• Persistent cookies – these are stored in your computer or hard-on equipment for a longer period of time, and remain stored even after you leave the website or when you close your web browser (and generally depend on the default cookie lifetime). Persistent cookies also include those placed on a site other than the one the user is currently visiting – known as “third party cookies” – which can be used anonymously to store the interests of a user so that advertising is delivered as relevant as possible to the user.
3. The advantages of cookies
A cookie contains information that links a browser (user) and a specific web-server (website). If a browser accesses that web-server again, it can read the already stored information and respond accordingly.
Cookies provide users with a pleasant browsing experience and support the efforts of many websites to provide user-friendly services.
Examples – Online privacy preferences, website language options, relevant advertising, etc.
4. The life of a cookie
Cookies are managed by web servers. A cookie’s life may vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed. Some cookies are used only in one session (“session cookies”) and are not retained after the user leaves the website, and some cookies are retained and reused each time the user returns to that site (“cookie” permanent “).
However, cookies can be deleted by the user at any time through browser settings.
