1. What is a "cookie"?

An "Internet Cookie" (also known as "browser cookie" or "HTTP cookie" or simply "cookie" ) is a small file, consisting of numbers and letters, which will be stored on your computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user accessing the  Internet.

Note: The cookie is installed through the request issued by  a web server to a browser (eg Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely "passive" (it does not contain: software, viruses or spyware and can not access  the information on the hard drive- user's). Cookies themselves do not require personal information in order to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify  Internet users.

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

Cookies can be divided and classified into 2 large categories:

  1. Session cookies - these are temporarily stored in the cookie folder of the web browser for it to store them until the user leaves the respective web-site or closes the browser window (eg when logging in / logging out on a webmail account or social networks). 
  2. Persistent Cookies - These are stored on the hard drive of a computer or equipment (and generally depend on  the default lifespan for the cookie). Persistent cookies also include those placed by a website other than the one the  user is visiting  at the time - known as 'third party cookies' (cookies placed by third parties) - which can be used anonymously to memorize a user's interests, so as to deliver advertising as relevant as possible to users.

2. What are the advantages of cookies?

A cookie contains information that connects  a web-browser (the user) and 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 provide comfortable services to users: e.g. online privacy preferences, site language options, shopping carts or relevant advertising.

3. What is the life span of a cookie?

Cookies are managed by webservers. The life 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 has left the website and some cookies are retained and reused each time the user returns to that website ("permanent cookies"). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time through browser settings.

4. What are cookies placed by third parties?

Certain sections of content on some sites may be provided through third parties/ providers.  These third parties may also place cookies through the site and they are called "third party cookies" because they are not placed by the owner of that website. Third-party providers must also comply with the law in force and the privacy policies of the site owner.

6. What type of information is accessed and stored through cookies?

Cookies store information in a small text file that allows a website to recognize a browser. The webserver will recognize your browser until the cookie expires or is deleted. The cookie stores important information that improves the Internet browsing experience (for example: online banking security; keeping a user logged into the webmail account;  preferences related to the language in which you want to access a site)

7. Why are cookies important for the Internet?

Cookies are the focal point of the efficient operation of the Internet, helping to generate a friendly browsing experience and tailored to the preferences and interests of each user. Denying or disabling cookies can make some sites impossible to use. Denying or disabling cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising - but only that it will no longer be able to take into account your preferences and interests, highlighted by your browsing behavior.

Below you can find examples of important uses of cookies (which do not require authentication of a user through an account):

  1. Measurement, optimization and statistics - such as confirming a certain level of traffic on a website, what type of content is viewed and how a user reaches a website (for example: through search engines, directly, from other websites, etc.). Websites run these analyses of  their use to improve sites for the benefit of users.
  2. Offers tailored to the interests of users - retention of passwords, language preferences (For example: displaying search results in Romanian).
  3. Content and services tailored to user preferences - weather, maps, news categories, sports, entertainment sites and travel services, public and government services.
  4. Providing relevant advertising to the user.
  5. Ad frequency limitation - limiting the number of impressions of an ad for a particular user on a site.
  6. Retaining child protection filters on Internet content (family mode options, safe search functions).

8. Security and privacy issues


They use plain text formats. They're not made up of pieces of code so they can't be executed nor can they auto-run. Consequently, they cannot duplicate or replicate on other networks to run or replicate again. Since they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.

Cookies can still be used for negative purposes. Because they store information about users' 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 fact and constantly mark cookies to be deleted, in the anti-virus / anti-spyware deletion / scanning procedures.

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

9. 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 can create. Because through them information is constantly transmitted in both ways 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 WiFi network).

Other cookie-based attacks involve wrong cookie settings on servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to induce browsers to send information through unsecured channels. Attackers then use the information  for the purpose of unauthorized access to certain sites. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most appropriate method of protecting personal information.

10. Tips for safe and responsible browsing, based on cookies
