Persistent cookies are files stored, depending on the predetermined duration, on the storage medium of a computer or equipment.
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" - which can be used anonymously to remember a user's interests, thus so that the most relevant advertising is delivered to users.

Do cookies contain personal data?
Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify Internet users.
In general, an application used to access web pages allows cookies to be saved on the terminal by default. These settings can be changed in such a way that the automatic administration of Cookies is blocked by the web browser or the user is informed each time Cookies are sent to his terminal. Detailed information about the possibilities and ways to manage Cookies can be found in the settings area of the application (web browser).
Why are Cookies important to the Internet?
Cookies are central to the efficient functioning of the Internet, helping to generate a user-friendly browsing experience tailored to each user's preferences and interests.
Disabling and refusing to receive Cookies may make certain websites impractical/inaccessible or difficult to visit and use.
Rejecting or deactivating 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 browsing behavior.
Examples of important uses of Cookies (which do not require user authentication through an account):
- Content and services tailored to user preferences – categories of products and services.
- Offers adapted to the interests of users – retention of passwords.
- Retention of child protection filters on Internet content (family mode options, safe search functions).
- Limiting the frequency of serving ads - limiting the number of times an ad is shown to a specific user on a site.
- Providing more relevant advertising to the user.
- 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 arrives at a website (e.g. via search engines, directly, from other websites- uri etc.). The websites carry out these analyzes of their use in order to improve the sites for the benefit of the users.
Security and privacy issues
Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code, so they cannot be executed or auto-run. Consequently, they cannot be duplicated or replicated to 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 it stores information about the preferences and browsing history of users, 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 so. marks Cookies for deletion during anti-virus/anti-spyware deletion/scanning procedures.
In general, browsers have integrated privacy settings that provide different levels of Cookie acceptance, validity period and automatic deletion after the user has visited a certain site.
Other security aspects related to Cookies:
Since 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 directions between the browser and the website, if an attacker or an unauthorized person intervenes during the data transmission, the information contained in the cookie 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 missetting cookies on servers. If a website does not instruct the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to trick browsers into sending information over unsecured channels. Attackers then use the information to gain unauthorized access to certain websites.
It is very important to be careful in choosing the most suitable method of personal information protection.
