What are Cookies?
Content and purpose of cookies
Cookies may contain any information selected by the server and are used to support the status of HTTP transactions that are otherwise "without a state". Typically, they are used to authenticate a registered user's identity on a website as part of the login or initial sign-up process on the site, and the user does not need to re-enter a username and password each time the site is accessed.
How long is the cookie saved on my computer?
Generally, a cookie remains logged on to the user's computer for use in the next session, but this is not a requirement or a rule - it can also be used only within one session and deleted at the end of the session. Cookies can also be deleted by the user at any time.
What do cookies identify?
If more than one browser is used on a computer, everyone has separate storage space for cookies. Cookies do not identify a person, but a combination of a computer and a web browser. Therefore, a person using multiple browsers and/or computers have a separate set of cookies for each computer-browser combination. On the other hand, cookies do not distinguish between multiple users sharing the same computer and browser unless they use different user accounts.
What to do if you do not want cookies to be installed on your computer?
Some people find that having a place to store information on their computer or mobile device is somewhat interfering, especially when this information is stored and used by third parties unknown to them. If you prefer, it may be possible to block some or all of the cookies or even remove the cookies that have already been placed on your device, but you should be aware that you may lose some functionality. To do this, you need to change the privacy settings of your browser. Below is explained how.
On May 25, 2011, the European Union has introduced a requirement for all websites operating on its territory to seek the consent of their users to install cookies. The arguments in favor of the decision were that they pose a potential risk to the management of EU citizens' personal data and jeopardize their integrity.
Although there is no clear text to suggest how this "consent" should appear, for now, the standard of so-called "tacit consent" is used. According to him, the user permits installation if he continues to view the specific website after a cookie alert.
What does the availability or lack of such a message guarantee on a site and which one should bother me?
The concept of user awareness is generally good, but the lack of such a message on a site, unfortunately, does not guarantee that cookies are not being used. If the site in question is designed to misuse and/or install malicious software on your computer, we strongly doubt you will be warned of it.
