6. What is a “cookie”?
A “Cookie Internet” (also known as “cookie browser” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file of letters and numbers that will be stored on your computer, other user equipment on which this site is accessed (more details on https://ro.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cookie). The cookie is installed through a browser-based browser (like Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox) and is completely “passive” (it does not contain software, viruses or spyware, and can not access the information on the hard drive user). A cookie consists of two parts: the name and the content or the value of the cookie. Moreover, the duration of a cookie is determined, and technically only the web server that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the website associated with that web-server. Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify Internet users. There are 2 large categories of cookies: Session cookies – they are temporarily stored in the web browser’s cookie folder to save them until the user exits the site or closes the browser window. Persistent cookies – they are stored on the hard drive of a computer or device for a duration that is configured by the website that placed it. This type of cookies can be deleted by the user at any time through browser settings.
7. What are the benefits of cookies?
A cookie contains information linking a web browser (the browser you are using, for example Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Safari, Mozilla Firefox, etc.) and a specific web-server, namely the server that host our site. If a browser accesses that web-server again, it can read the already stored information and react accordingly. Cookies provide users with a pleasant browsing experience and support the efforts of many websites to provide comfortable user services: online privacy preferences, site language options, shopping carts, or relevant advertising.
8. What is the lifetime of a cookie?
Cookies are managed by web-servers. The life of a cookie may vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed. Some cookies are used exclusively for one session (session cookies) and are not retained once the user leaves the website and some cookies are retained and reused whenever the user returns to that site (cookie persistent). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time.

15. Security aspects of cookies
Cookies are NOT Viruses! They use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code so they can not be executed or can auto-run. Consequently, they can not duplicate or replicate on other networks to run or replicate again. Because they can not perform these functions, they can not be considered viruses. Cookies can still be used for negative purposes. Because it stores information about user 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 consistently mark cookies to be deleted in anti-virus / anti-spyware removal / scanning procedures. In general, browsers have built-in privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, shelf life, and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular site. Since identity protection is very valuable and is the right of every internet user, it is advisable to know what problems can create cookies. In order to transmit constant information in both ways between the browser and the website, if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes during the data transmission, the information contained in the cookie can be intercepted. Although very rarely, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (eg an unsecured WiFi network). Other cookie-based attacks involve bad cookie settings on the servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to prevent browsers from sending information through insecure 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.
