What are cookies

A cookie is short text information sent to your browser from a website you visit. It helps the site remember information about your visit and settings. This can facilitate a follow-up visit and make the site more useful to you.

Cookies are used for many purposes – to remember the preferences and settings for appearance, font, site language, to offer relevant ads to your interests, to keep statistics of page visits, to remember your site that you are logged in and others.

Websites often collect information about how users interact with them – this can include the pages that people visit the most, whether they receive error messages from some of them, how they navigate the site, and more. Based on the analysis of this information, actions are taken to improve the services and performance of the sites for the enjoyment of the users without any problems.

Cookie Types:
Session Cookies

Session cookies allow you to be recognized during a one-time visit to the website so that customizations or changes made to each page are saved to other pages on the site. Session cookies are temporary and expire when you close your browser or exit the site.

Persistent Cookies

Permanent cookies are stored on your computer for a period of time after the end of your user session on the site and allow your preferences and settings to be “remembered” when you revisit the site.

Third Party Cookies

These are cookies for storing information about reporting site performance and ads by demographics, interests, length of sessions, etc. This site uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service without personally identifying the individual visitors. Offered by Google, Inc. All of this information is used by us for statistical purposes only and for identifying incorrect links or bugs. No disclosure to third parties is made. Cookies are not used for purposes other than those specified here.

How to control cookies

You can control and / or delete cookies whenever you like. For more information, visit AllAboutCookies.org . You can delete all or selected cookies that are already stored on your computer, and you can also set most browsers to block them. However, if you do, you may need to manually adjust some parameters each time you visit a site, and some services and features may not work.

Do cookies contain personal information?

By themselves, cookies do not require personally identifiable information to be used and most often do not identify the identity of Internet users. The personal data collected from the use of cookies can only be collected to facilitate the use by the user. This data is encrypted in a way that prevents unauthorized persons from accessing it.

Delete cookies

In general, a web page access application allows cookies to be stored by default. These settings can be changed so that automatic cookie management is blocked by the web browser or the user is informed every time cookies are sent to his or her terminal. Detailed information about the capabilities and ways of managing cookies can be found in the settings of the application (on the web browser). Restricting the use of cookies may affect some features of the Website.

Security & Privacy

Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text format. They are not made up of pieces of code, so they cannot be executed or run on their own. Therefore, they cannot be duplicated or copied to other networks to start or to be copied again. Because they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.

Usually browsers have built-in privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, validity, and automatic deletion after a user visits a site.

Tips for safe and responsible cookie based browsing.

Due to their flexibility and the fact that most of the most visited and largest websites use cookies, the latter are almost inevitable. Disabling cookies will not allow the user to access the most common and used sites, including Youtube, Gmail, Yahoo and more.

Here are some tips that can help you browse without worrying about cookies.

– Customize your browser settings for cookies to create the right level of cookie protection.
– If you are the only person using your computer, you can set longer expiration times to store your browsing history and access to personal information.
– If you share access to your computer with someone, you can set the browser to delete your personal browsing data every time you close your browser.
– Keep your browser up-to-date. Many cookie-based attacks occur when exploiting the weak points of old and outdated versions of browsers.

Cookies are everywhere and cannot be avoided if you want to enjoy access to the best and greatest websites.
It may be possible to set the browser so that these cookies are no longer accepted or accepted only by certain sites. All modern browsers offer the ability to change cookie settings.
