1.Some useful information about cookies and device identifiers
1.1. What is a “cookie”?
An “Internet Cookie” (also known as a “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, that will be stored on your computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user from which the Internet is accessed.
The cookie is installed by the request issued by a web server to a browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome) and is completely “passive” (does not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the user’s hard drive). The cookie stores certain information (for example, your preferred language or web page settings), which your browser may retransmit to us when you access the web page again (depending on the lifetime of the cookie).
Cookies themselves do not require personal information in order to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify Internet users.
1.2. What are the types of cookies?
There are several types of cookies. Their classification is made according to their lifespan, role and source, as follows:
a) TYPES OF COOKIES BY THEIR LIFETIME
These are temporarily stored in the cookies folder of the web browser so that it can store them until the user leaves the respective website or closes the browser window (e.g., when logging in / logging out on a webmail account or on social networks). At the end of the session or when closing the browser, all stored information is deleted.
These are stored on the hard drive of a computer or device (and generally depend on the default cookie lifetime). They are not deleted when you log out of the browser or close the browser, but when they expire. Persistent cookies also include those cookies placed by a website other than the one the user is currently visiting – known as ‘third party cookies’ – which for example may be used anonymously to store a user’s interests so that the most relevant advertising for users is delivered when they access other websites.
b) Types of cookies by their role
These types of cookies are required in order for web pages to function properly. Strictly required cookies allow you to browse the website and benefit from all its features. Without these cookies, the websites will not be able to offer certain features, such as automatic redirection to the least busy server or retention of your wish list.
Functional cookies record information about the choices that users make and also allow website operators to customize the website according to user requirements. For example, cookies can be used to save category / segment preferences.
Performance analysis cookies
These types of cookies offer the possibility for internet website operators to monitor visits and traffic sources, the way in which users interact with their website or with certain sections of the website.
The information provided by the analysis cookies helps the operators understand how the visitors use the websites and then to use this information in order to improve the way the content offered to the users is presented.
Targeting and advertising cookies
These cookies may provide the ability to monitor users’ online activities and to establish user profiles, which may then be used for marketing purposes. For example, based on these cookies, the products and services agreed by a user can be identified, this information being subsequently used to create a user profile to be used for the display of personalized advertising.
c) First party cookies vs third party cookies
Each cookie has a “supervising” (i.e., website / Internet domain) that places that cookie.
First party cookies are placed by the Internet domain / website accessed by the user (whose address appears in the browser’s address bar). For example, if the user visits donamplasma.ro, and the domain of the cookie placed on the user’s computer is donamplasma.ro, then it is a first party cookie.
A third-party cookie is placed by a different Internet domain / website than the one accessed by the user; this means that the accessed website also contains information from a third-party website – for example, an advertising banner that appears on the accessed website. Thus, if the user visits donamplasma.ro but the cookie placed on the user’s computer has as domain doublecklick.net then it is a third-party cookie placed by a third-party provider.
d) Built-in content (buttons, apps and social widgets)
The pages of the websites allow the implementation of social buttons or widgets from a third party, which allow the users to interact with the websites whose social buttons or widgets are implemented. User interaction with social media buttons or widgets from a third party allows the third party to collect some information about that user, such as IP address, page header information and browser information, page location information.
e) How do targeting and advertising cookies work?
In general, data about Internet browsing activity is collected and analyzed anonymously. If this analysis reveals a specific interest, a cookie is placed on the user’s computer and this cookie determines which ad the user will receive, which is called interest-based advertising.
Interest-based advertising is a way of delivering ads to the websites you visit and making them more relevant to your interests. The common interests are grouped according to the navigation activity carried out previously, and the users are served only the advertising that matches their interests. In this way, advertising is relevant and as useful as possible.
