1. What is a cookie?

An “Internet cookie” (also known as a “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”)
is a small file of numbers and letters that is stored on a user’s computer, mobile device or other equipment from which the Internet is accessed.

A cookie consists of 2 parts: the name and the content or value of the cookie. Furthermore, the lifetime of a cookie is fixed; technically, only the web server that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the website associated with that webserver.

Please note that cookies are installed through a request issued by a web server to a browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Chrome) and are completely "passive" (they do not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access information on the user's hard drive). Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, do not
personally identify internet users.

Cookies facilitate a user-friendly browsing experience tailored to each user's preferences and interests (e.g., online privacy preferences, site language options, shopping baskets or relevant advertising). Refusing or disabling cookies may render some sites unusable.

Refusing or disabling cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising – it just means that it will no longer be able to take into account your preferences and interests, according to your browsing behavior.

Cookies can be divided and classified into 2 broad categories:

a. Session cookies

– These are stored temporarily in the web browser's cookie folder so that the browser remembers them until the user exits the website or closes the browser window (e.g., when logging in/out of a webmail or social media account).

b. Persistent cookies

– These are stored on the hard drive of a computer or device (and generally depend on the predetermined lifetime of the cookie). Persistent cookies also include those placed by a website other than the one the user is currently visiting – known as “third party cookies” –
which can be used anonymously to remember a user's interests and to provide the most relevant advertising experience.

2. What are the benefits of cookies?

A cookie contains information that links a web browser (the user) to a specific web server (the website). If a browser accesses that web server again, it can read the information already stored and react accordingly. Cookies provide users with a pleasant browsing
experience and support the efforts of many websites to offer convenient services to users (e.g. online privacy preferences, site language options, shopping carts or relevant advertising).

3. What is the lifetime of a cookie?

Cookies are managed by web servers. The lifetime of a cookie can vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed. Some cookies are used exclusively for a single session (session cookies) and are no longer retained once the user leaves the website, while other cookies are retained and reused each time the user returns to that website (persistent cookies). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time through the browser settings.

4. What are third party cookies?

Certain sections of content on websites may be provided through third parties/suppliers (e.g. a news box, a video or an advertisement). These third parties may also place cookies through the site, which are called "third party cookies" as they are not placed by the owner of that website. Third party providers must also comply with the current legislation and the privacy policies of the site owner.

5. How are cookies used by this site?

Our site uses the following cookies:

a. Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of the site, used to provide each user with the easiest browsing experience.

– send information from one page to another (e.g., if you have filled in an online form, if you need to enter a large amount of data when ordering online or when asking a question).
– detect abusive uses of our website and services (e.g., logging a high number of consecutive unsuccessful login attempts).

No permission is required to use these cookies and they cannot be disabled.

b. Statistics cookies

Every time a user visits this website, we use the service provided by Google Analytics to anonymously record statistical data. This allows us to track the unique users who visit our site and how often they do so. These analytics offer us insight into how we can improve the sections and pages of the site, how we can organize and optimize the information to provide the best experience for the site visitor. This cookie cannot be used to identify individuals, they are only used for statistical purposes. If you are registered, we may also know the
details you have shared with us, such as your email address and username (these are subject to privacy and the provisions of the Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policy as well as the provisions of current legislation on the protection of personal data).

c. Preference cookies

This type of cookie retains the user's preferences, so there is no need to set them each time you visit the site (e.g. online privacy preferences, video player volume settings, video streaming speed supported by the browser, site language options, shopping baskets, etc.).

When you register on this site, we generate a cookie that lets us know whether you are registered or not. Our servers use these cookies to show us which account you are registered with and whether you have permission for a particular service. It also allows us to associate any comments you post on our site with your username. If you have not selected “keep me logged in”, this cookie will be automatically deleted when you close your browser or computer.

d. Marketing cookies

In order to receive ads tailored to your preferences, our website uses technology from DoubleClick for Publishers (DFP) and AdExchange, fprovided by Google. The information generated by the cookie files about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers which may be located in the EU, EEA and/or the United States. Please read Google’s privacy policy.

For the same marketing analysis and traffic monitoring purposes, our website uses cookies
placed byCXense to collect data about your browsing behavior on the website.

Rejecting or disabling cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising – only that it will no longer be able to take into account your preferences and interests, according to your browsing behavior.

On some pages, third parties may set their own anonymous cookies to track the success of or customize an application. In this case, this site cannot access third party cookies, just as third parties cannot access the cookies operated by this site.

6. Security and privacy issues


They use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code so they cannot be executed or run themselves. Consequently, they cannot be duplicated or replicated on other networks to run or replicate themselves again. Since they do not perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.

Cookies can however be used for malicious purposes. Because they store information about users' preferences and browsing history, on one or multiple sites, cookies can be used as a form of spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this and constantly flag cookies
for deletion as part of anti-virus/anti-spyware deletion/scanning procedures. Browsers generally have built-in privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, validity period and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular site.

7. Other security issues related to cookies

As identity protection is a valuable right for any internet user, it is important to know how cookies might lead to potential security issues. Because cookies constantly send information back and forth between the browser and the website, if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes in the data transmission path, 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 (e.g., an unsecured Wi-Fi network).

Other cookie-based attacks involve incorrect cookie settings on servers. If a website does not require the browser to only use encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to trick browsers into sending information through unsecured channels. Attackers then use the information to gain unauthorized access to certain websites. It is very important to be careful when choosing the most appropriate method of protecting personal information.

8. Tips for safe and responsible browsing based on cookies

Due to their flexibility and widespread use when accessing most websites, cookies are almost unavoidable.

Below are some tips to ensure that you can browse without worrying about cookies:

a. Install and constantly update anti-spyware applications.

b. If you don't mind cookies and are the only user on your device(s), you can set long expiry times for storing browsing history and personal access data.

c. If you share access to your device(s), you may consider setting your browser to delete your individual browsing data each time you close the browser.

d. Customize your browser settings regarding cookies to reflect a level of cookie security that you are comfortable with.

Many spyware detection and prevention applications alert the user when website attacks occur. This prevents your browser from accessing websites that could exploit browser vulnerabilities or download dangerous software.

Make sure your browser is always up to date. Many cookie-based attacks are carried out by exploiting weaknesses in older browser versions.

Cookies are everywhere and cannot be avoided if you want to enjoy access to the best and biggest local or international sites on the Internet. With a clear understanding of how they work and the benefits they bring, you can take the necessary security measures so that you
can surf the internet with confidence.

9. How can I refuse cookies?

Disabling and refusing to receive cookies may make certain sites impractical or difficult to access. Also, refusing to accept cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising.

You can set your browser to automatically refuse cookies or to only accept them from specific sites. However, in this instance, you will not be able to leave comments on the site.

All modern browsers allow the user to change cookie settings. These settings are usually found in the “options” or "preferences" menu of your browser.

To understand these settings, the following links may be useful, otherwise you can use your browser's "help" option for more details.

– Cookie settings for Internet Explorer
– Cookie settings for Firefox
– Cookie settings for Chrome
