By using this site and other sites owned by SC CITADEL EFORIE SRL, you agree to the way we use our cookies in accordance with this Policy of Use.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small files of letters and numbers that will be stored on your computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user accessing the Internet.

Cookies are installed by requesting a web server, a browser (eg Internet Explorer, Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari).

Cookies are completely “passive” (do not contain software, viruses or spyware, and can not access the information on the user’s hard drive).

A cookie consists of 2 parts: the name and the content or the cookie value. 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 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:

1. session cookies: are temporarily stored in the web browser’s cookie folder so that the browser saves them until the user exits the web site or closes the browser window;

2. Persistent cookies: they are stored on the hard drive of a computer or device and are reactivated when you visit the site that created that particular cookie. Persistent cookies include those placed on a website other than the one that the user is currently visiting. These are known as “third party cookies” and cookies placed by third parties. They store the interests of a user to deliver the most relevant advertising for them.

What is the life of a cookie?

A cookie’s life may vary significantly depending on the purpose for which it is placed. Some cookies are intended for a single use (such as session cookies), therefore they are not retained once the user leaves the site. Other cookies are maintained and reused every time the user returns to the site (persistent cookies). However, cookies can be deleted by the user at any time using the browser settings.

What are cookies placed by third parties?

Some content sections of sites may be provided through third-party cookies, as is the case with an ad. Such cookies can be placed on the site and are termed cookies placed by third parties because they are not placed by the site owner. Such third parties are also required to comply with the applicable legal regulations and privacy policies of the site owner.

Why are cookies important for the internet?

Cookies are the central focus of the Internet’s efficient operation, 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. Refusing or disabling cookies does not mean that you will not receive online advertising – but it will not be able to take account of your preferences and interests, highlighted by your browsing behavior.

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

1. Content and services adapted to user preferences – product and service categories;
2. Offers tailored to users’ interests – password retention;
3. Retaining child protection filters on Internet content (family mode options, safe search functions);
4. Limit ad serving frequency – limit the number of impressions of an ad for a particular user on a site;
5. Providing more relevant advertising for the user;
6. Measurement, optimization, and Analytics features – such as confirming a certain level of traffic on a website, what type of content is viewed, and how a user reaches a website (example: through search engines, directly from other websites, etc.). Websites run these analyzes of their use to improve sites for the benefit of users.
