  1. 1. What is a „cookie”? Cathegories/Types of cookies

A “cookie” is a small dimensions file composed of letters and figures which is stored on the computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user from which Internet is accessed. The cookie is installed upon the request issued by a web-server of a browser (e.g., without limitation, Internet Explorer, Chrome, MozillaFirefox, etc.) and is “passive” (does not contain software programmes, viruses or spywares and cannot access the information on the user’s hard drive).

A cookie is composed of two parts: the name and the content or the value of the cookie. The existence duration of a cookie is determined. Technically only the web-server that transmitted the cookie may access it again on the moment a user returns on the website associated to the respective web-server.

The cookie stores important information which makes a better navigation experience on the Internet (e.g., the settings of the language in which it is intended the access to a site, online banking security, etc.).

The cookies by themselves do not require personal information for being used and, in most cases, do not identify personally the Internet users.

There are the main cookies categories:

 

„Essential” and „Non-essential” Cookies

Essential cookies: present one of the following two characteristics:

•           they are used exclussively for the performance or the facilitation of a network communication; or

•           are strictly necessary for the provision of an online service (e.g., our site or a service on our site) requested by you.

Non-essential cookies: These do not fall within the definition of essential cookies because they are not strictly necessary for the functioning of a site or of the services offerred  on a site, as the cookies used for analysing the behaviour on a website („analytical cookies”) or cookies used for the display of advertisment.

Session and persistent Cookies

Cookies may be of two types: „session” and „persistent”, depending on their storage duration after being placed in your browser. These are temporarily stored in the cookie file of the web browser so that it memorise them until the user leaves the respective websiste or closes the browser’s window (e.g.,: in the moment of logging in/out on a webmail account or on social networkings).

Session Cookies: they remain on the device as long as the web navigator is open. They expire when the web navigator is closed.

Persistent Cookies: they expire at a determined moment in time or if they are erased manually form the web navigator. They are stored on the hardrive of a computer or equipment (and in general depend on the previously establieshed cookie lifecycle). Persistent cookies include also those placed on another website than the one visited by the user at a certain time, known by the name “third party cookie” (cookies placed by third parties), which can be used anonimously for memorising the interests of a user so that more relevant advertisment for the users be delivered.

In addition, cookies may also divide according to the entity that manages them, thus being either own (in that case of the Data Controller) or of other parties.

Depending on their purpose, there may be: (a) technical cookies (necessary for navigation), (b) statistics cookies (collecting information on the way users use a website, such as which are the most popular pages, what connection methed between pages is the most efficient and whether the users encounter error messages on the webpages), (c) functional/preference cookies (they remember the user’s choices in order to improve their navigation experience), (d) advertisement cookies (for managing advertisement areas) or behavioural advertisement cookies (advertisement on a website).
