2. What are Cookies?
Cookies are a small files of letters and numbers that may be stored on a user’s computer, mobile terminal or other equipment while the user is browsing the Internet. Cookies are installed through a request sent by a web server to a browser (eg Internet Explorer, Chrome) and are completely “passive” (they do not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the user’s hard drive).
3. What are Cookies used for?
These files make it possible to recognize a user’s terminal and to display the content in a relevant way, adapted to the user’s preferences. Cookies provide users a pleasant browsing experience and support the efforts made by SC Roem Nosis SRL to provide user-friendly services: eg. preferences regarding online privacy, shopping cart or relevant advertising. They are also used to prepare anonymous aggregate statistics which help us understand how a user benefits from our web pages, allowing us to improve their structure and content, excluding user’s personal identification.
4. What cookies do we use?
We use two types of cookies – “session cookies” and “persistent cookies”. The latter are temporary files which remain on a user’s terminal until he logs out or closes the application (a web browser). The “persistent” files remain on a user’s terminal for the time defined in the Cookie parameters or until they are manually deleted by the user.

8. Why are cookies important for the Internet?
Cookies represent the central point of the efficient functioning of the Internet, helping to generate a friendly surfing experience that is adapted to the preferences and interests of each user. Refusing or disabling cookies may make some websites impossible to use.
Refusing or disabling cookies does not mean that you will stop receiving online advertising – it only means that this advertisting will not be able to take your preferences and interests into account, based on your browsing behavior.
Examples of important uses of cookies (that do not require authentication of a user through an account):
– content and services tailored to the user’s preferences – categories of products and services.
– offers tailored to the user’s interests – password retention.
– retention of child protection filters on Internet content (family mode options, safe search functions).
– limiting ad frequency – limiting the number of times that you see an ad.
– providing ads more relevant for the user.
– measuring, improving and analytics features – such as confirming a certain level of traffic on a website, what type of content is viewed, and how a user arrives on a website (eg search engines, directly, from other websites etc.). Websites run these analyzes of their use to improve the sites for the benefit of the users.
9. Security and confidentiality issues
Cookies are not viruses! They use plain text formats. Cookies are not compiled pieces of code so they cannot be executed, nor are they self-executing. Consequently, they cannot duplicate or replicate on other networks in order to execute or replicate again. Since they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.
Cookies can still be used for negative purposes. Since they store information about the users’ preferences and about their browsing history, both on a particular site and on several other sites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this fact and constantly mark cookies to be deleted in anti-virus/anti-spyware removal/scanning proceedings.
Generally, browsers have integrated privacy settings that provide different levels of cookies acceptance, the validity period and auto erasion after the user has visited a particular site.
Other security issues related to cookies:
– Because identity protection is very valuable and is the right of every Internet user, it should be known what kind of problems cookies may create. Because information is constantly transmitted through them in both directions, between browser and website, if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes during data transmission, the information contained in the cookie can be intercepted.
Although very rare, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (eg unsecured WiFi network).
– Other cookie-based attacks involve wrong cookies settings on servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to trick browsers into sending information through insecure channels. Attackers then use the information in order to have unauthorized access to certain sites. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most suitable method of protecting personal information.
Tips for a safe and responsible navigation, based on cookies
If you do not mind cookies and you are the only person using your computer, you can set long-term expiration periods for the storage of the browsing history and personal access data.
If you share computer access, you may take into consideration setting your browser to delete individual browsing data every time you close the browser. This is one way to access sites that place cookies and to remove any visit information at the end of the browsing session.
Install and update your anti-spyware applications constantly.
Many detection and prevention of spyware applications include detecting attacks on sites. Thus, the browser is prevented from accessing websites that could exploit browser vulnerabilities or download dangerous software.
Make sure you keep your browser updated.
Many of the cookie-based attacks are done by exploiting the weaknesses of old versions of browsers.
Cookies are everywhere and they cannot be avoided if you want to enjoy access to the best and biggest sites on the Internet – local or international.
