The function of cookies is to:
Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code so they cannot be executed or run on their own. As a result, they cannot be duplicated or replicated on other networks in order to run or replicate again. Because they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses. However, cookies may be used for negative purposes. Because they store information about users’ preferences and browsing history, cookies can be used as a form of spyware.
The “cookie” term refers to technologies through which certain information is collected automatically. An “Internet Cookie” (also known as “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file of letters and numbers, which will be stored on the computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user where from the Internet is accessed.
The cookie is installed at the request of a web server to a browser (ex: Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely “passive” (does not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the hard drive of the user who installed it).
A cookie consists of 2 parts:
Moreover, the lifetime of a cookie is limited from the time of installation. Technically, only the webserver that sent the cookie can access it again when a visitor returns to the website associated with that webserver.
Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and do not personally identify internet users, in most of cases.
Cookies are the the central point of the efficient functioning of the Internet, helping to build a friendly browsing experience and adapted to the preferences and interests of each user.
Declining or disabling cookies can do some sites impossible to use. Refusing or disabling cookies does not mean that visitors will not receive online advertising – it’s just that it will no longer be able to take into account their preferences and interests, pointed out by the navigation behavior.
These are temporary stored in the cookies folder of the web browser to store them until the visitor logs out of that web site or closes the browser window.
They are stored on the hard drive of a computer or device (generally depend on the default cookie lifetime). Persistent cookies also include those placed by a website other than the one that the visitor is accessing at that time – known as ‘third party cookies’ (cookies placed by third parties) – which can be used anonymously to store a user’s interests, so that the most relevant advertising for visitors is delivered.
A cookie contains information that links a web browser (user / visitor) to a specific web server (the Site).
If a browser accesses that web server again, it can read already stored information and react accordingly.
Cookies guarantee a pleasant browsing experience for visitors and support the efforts of many websites to provide comfortable and user-friendly services: ex – online privacy preferences or relevant advertising.
Cookies are managed by web servers. A cookie’s life is limited and can be significantly variable, depending on the intended purpose.
Some cookies are used exclusively for a single session (session cookies) and them are no longer retained once the user has left the website and some cookies are retained and reused each time the user returns to that website until the expiration date – which can be for a few minutes, hours, days or even years (permanent cookies).
However, cookies can be deleted by the user at any time through the browser settings.
Certain sections of content on some sites may be provided through third parties/suppliers (ex: news box, a video or commercial). These third parties may also place cookies on the Site and they are called “third party cookies”, because they are not placed by the respective website owner. Third party Suppliers must also comply with the legislation in force and the privacy policies of the site owner.
