  1. Do cookies still contain personal data?

Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and in most cases, do not personally identify Internet users.

Personal data collected through the use of cookies can be collected only to facilitate certain functionalities for the user. This data is encrypted in a way that makes it impossible for unauthorized persons to access it.

  1. Deleting Cookies

In general, an application used to access web pages, allows the cookies to be saved on the terminal by default. These settings can be changed in such a way that the automatic administration of the cookies is blocked by the web browser or the user is informed whenever the cookies are sent to his terminal. Detailed information about the possibilities and ways of managing cookies can be found in the application settings area (web browser).

Limiting the use of cookies can affect certain functionalities of the web page.

  1. Why are cookies important for the Internet?

Cookies are the central point of the efficient functioning of the Internet, helping to generate a friendly browsing experience and adapted to the preferences and interests of each user.

Disabling and refusing to receive cookies may make certain sites impractical / inaccessible or difficult to visit and use.

Refusing or deactivating cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising but that it will no longer be able to take into account your preferences highlighted by browsing behavior.

Examples of important uses of cookies (which do not require user authentication through an account):

  • Content and services adapted to the user’s preferences – categories of products and services.
  • Offers tailored to the interests of users – password retention.
  • Retaining child protection filters on Internet content (family ode options, safe search functions).
  • Limiting the frequency of ad serving – limiting the number of times an advertisement is displayed for a particular user on a site.
  • Providing more relevant advertising for the user.
  • Measurement, optimization and analytics features – such as confirming a certain level of traffic on a website, what kind of content is viewed and how a user reaches a website (eg through direct search engines, from other web sites (etc). The websites carry out these analyzes of their use to improve the websites for the benefit of the users.

 

  1. Security and confidentiality issues

Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code, so they cannot be executed, nor can they self-run. As a result, you cannot duplicate or replicate on other networks to run or replicate again. Because they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.

However, cookies can be used for negative purposes. Because it stores information about users’ browsing preferences and 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 and are constantly flagging cookies to be deleted in anti-virus / anti-spyware scanning / scanning procedures.

In general, browsers have integrated privacy settings that provide different levels of acceptance of cookies, the period of validity and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular site.

Other security aspects related to cookies:

Because identity protection is very valuable and represents the right of every Internet user, it is advisable to know what possible problems Cookies may create.

Because through them they constantly transmit, in both directions, information between the browser and the website, if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes during the data transmission, the information contained in the cookies can be intercepted.

This can happen, for example, if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (eg an unsecured WiFi network).

Other cookie-based attacks involve incorrect cookie settings on servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to trick their browsers into sending information through unsecured channels. The attackers then use the information for purposes of unauthorized access to certain sites.

It is very important to be careful when choosing the most appropriate method of protecting personal information.

  1. Tips for safe and responsible browsing, based on Cookies.

Due to their flexibility and the fact that most of the most visited and largest websites use cookies, these are almost inevitable.

Here are some tips that can ensure you navigate without worry, but with the help of cookies:

  • Customize your browser settings for Cookies to reflect a comfortable level of security for your Coookie use.
  • If you do not mind cookies and you are the only person using the computer, you can set long deadlines for storing your browsing history and personal access data.
  • If you share access to the computer, you can consider setting the browser to clear individual browsing data each time you close the browser. This is an option to access the websites that place cookies and to delete any visit information at the end of the browsing session.
  • Install and constantly update spyware applications.

 

Many spyware detection and prevention applications include detecting site attacks. Thus, it prevents the browser from accessing websites that could exploit the vulnerability of the browser or download dangerous software. Make sure you have your browser always updated to the latest version. Many of the cookies-based attacks are made by exploiting the weaknesses of older versions of browsers.

Cookies are everywhere and cannot be avoided if you want to enjoy access to Internet sites – local or international. With a clear understanding of the operating mode and the benefits they bring, you can take the necessary security measures so you can surf the Internet with confidence.

It is possible to set it in the browser so that these cookies are no longer accepted or you can set the browser to accept cookies from a particular site. But, for example, if you are not registered using Cookies, you will not be able to leave comments.

All modern browsers offer the possibility to change the settings of cookies. These settings are usually found in the “options” or “preferences” menu of your browser.
