5. Your consent to the use of cookies

Once you have accessed our website you will be greeted by a message asking for your consent in accordance with the applicable legal provisions regarding the categories of cookies you will or will not consent to us using during your visit to our website. It is also important to note that by consenting to the use of such cookie(s) you will also be consenting to the safe storage of the information collected by the cookie(s) to which you have consented.

6. What is a cookie?

An “Internet cookie” (also known as a “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file, made up of letters and numbers, which will be stored on the computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of the user from which this site is accessed (more details on https://ro.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cookie).

The cookie is installed by a request issued by a web-server to a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox) and is completely “passive” i.e. it contains no software, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the user’s hard drive.

A cookie consists of 2 parts: the name and the content or value of the cookie. Furthermore, the lifetime 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 in order to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify Internet users.

There are 2 broad categories of cookies:

Session cookies – these are stored temporarily in the web browser’s cookie folder for the browser to remember until the user exits the site or closes the browser window.

Persistent cookies – these are stored on the hard drive of a computer or device for a duration configured by the website that placed it. This type of cookie can be deleted by the user at any time via the browser settings.

7. What are the advantages of cookies?

A cookie contains information that links a web-browser (the browser you use, for example Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Safari, Mozilla Firefox, etc.) to a specific web-server, namely the server that hosts our website. If a browser accesses that web-server again, it can read the information already stored and react accordingly. Cookies ensure a pleasant browsing experience for users and support many websites’ efforts to provide convenient services to users: e.g. online privacy preferences, site language choices, shopping carts or relevant advertising.

8. What is the lifetime of a cookie?

Cookies are managed by web servers. The lifetime 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 leaves the website and some cookies are retained and reused each time the user returns to that website (persistent cookies). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time.

9. How we use cookies on this site

We have classified our cookies into the following categories to make it easier for you to understand why we need them:

9.1 Strictly necessary – these are used to make our work on the site more efficient. These cookies

do not collect information about you that could be used for advertising or to record your internet activity. Without these cookies, this site will not function properly. So if you block these cookies, we cannot predict how the site will perform for you.

9.2. Performance – these are used to analyze how our website is performing and

how we can improve it, for example, which pages are viewed most often and whether you encounter error messages. They do not collect information that can identify you, all data is anonymous.

By using our site you consent to the use of “performance” cookies. If you block them, we cannot predict how the site will perform for you.

9.3. Functionality – they help improve your experience – they can record changes

you have made to the site. The information they collect can be made anonymous. They relate strictly to our site and cannot track other sites you visit.

You can block or allow the use of these cookies, but blocking them may mean that we can no longer provide certain services. Blocking them may also prevent us from remembering that you did not want certain information.

9.4. Targeting/advertising – these are used to exchange certain information with third parties

third parties with whom we advertise, to know how you came to our site. We may also use cookies to identify the parts of the site you are interested in. We then use this information to show you advertisements and pages that we think may be of interest to you, to tailor how we communicate with you or to tailor the content of communications we send to you.

If you prefer, you can opt-out of these. Individualizing the content means that it includes information that reflects the interest you have shown in the content of our pages or offers or promotions that we think may be of interest to you, and to improve how we respond to your needs.

10. Types of cookies we use:

Cookies are used for the proper functioning of the site, they are part of the “mandatory” group and cannot be turned off, they are valid for the entire session.

11. What are cookies placed by third parties?

Third party cookies are cookies placed by a website other than the one the user is currently visiting and may be used anonymously to remember a user’s browsing history so that the user can be delivered the most relevant advertising. This type of cookie can be blocked by a user through browser settings.

Please note that we have no control over and are not responsible for the privacy policies and practices of third parties, but third parties are bound by applicable law and the privacy policies of the owner of this site.

12. How can you turn off cookies?

Disabling and refusing to receive cookies may make certain sites impractical or difficult to visit and use. Also, refusing to accept cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive/see online advertising.

It is possible to set your browser not to accept cookies or you can set your browser to accept cookies from a specific site.

All modern browsers offer the possibility to change cookie settings. These settings are usually found in the “options” or “preferences” menu of your browser.

13. Storing information captured by cookies

The information obtained by cookies is kept in high security by the web-server, i.e. the server hosting our website.

We assure you that our web-server must comply with high security requirements regarding the information collected by cookies, and is required to strictly comply with the obligations imposed by applicable law.

The information we collect about you by accessing our web-site will not be shared with third parties, except our partner SICOS Securities, a Luxembourg registered entity, with registered office at Parc d’Activites, 8308 Capellen registered with the Luxembourg Register of Commerce, under number B220970, which will use this information exclusively for the fulfilment of contractual obligations to our company.

14. Security of personal data

In order to protect the privacy of your data and personal information that you submit through the use of this website, we maintain physical, technical and administrative safeguards.

We update and test our security technology on an ongoing basis. We restrict access to your personal information to only those employees who need to know that information in order to provide you with benefits or services. In addition, we train our employees on the importance of privacy and maintaining the confidentiality and security of your information.

If a leak of personal data occurs, we will do everything we can to eliminate it and assess a level of risk related to the leak in accordance with our personal data breach policy. If it is determined that the leak may result in physical, material or non-material harm to you (e.g. discrimination, identity theft, fraud or financial loss), we will contact you without undue delay, unless otherwise required by law. All our steps will be taken in full cooperation with the competent supervisory authority.

15. Cookie security issues

Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code so they cannot be executed nor can they auto-run. Consequently, they cannot be duplicated or replicated on other networks to run or replicate themselves again. Since they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.

Cookies can however 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 consistently flag cookies for deletion as part of anti-virus/anti-spyware deletion/scanning procedures.

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

As identity protection is very valuable and is the right of every internet user, it is advisable to be aware of the potential problems that cookies can create. Because cookies constantly transmit information back and forth 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 Wi Fi network).

16. Changes to cookie policy

We may update this privacy policy from time to time by posting a new version on this website.

As personal data protection laws, interpretations by state bodies, recommendations by supervisory authorities change and improve from time to time, it is expected that this privacy notice and terms of use will also change. We reserve the right to change this disclosure document at any time, for any reason and without notice. Any changes to our privacy policy will be posted on this page so that you are aware of our policies. The provisions contained herein supersede any prior notices or statements regarding our privacy practices.

17.Tips for safe and responsible browsing based on cookies

Due to their flexibility and the fact that most of the most visited and largest sites use cookies, they are almost unavoidable. Disabling cookies will not allow the user access to the most popular and used sites including You tube, Gmail, Yahoo and others.

Here are a few tips that can help ensure that you are browsing worry-free with cookies:

Customize your browser settings for cookies to reflect a level of cookie security that is comfortable for you.

– If you don’t mind cookies and are the only person using your computer, you can set long expiration times for storing browsing history and personal access data.

– If you share access to your computer, you may consider setting your browser to delete individual browsing data each time you close the browser. This is a variation of accessing sites that place cookies and deleting any visit data when you close your browsing session.

– Install and constantly update your anti-spyware applications.

Many spyware detection and prevention applications include detection of attacks on websites. This prevents your browser from accessing websites that could exploit browser vulnerabilities or download dangerous software. Make sure your browser is always up to date. Many cookie-based attacks are carried out by exploiting weaknesses in older versions of browsers.

Cookies are everywhere and cannot be avoided if you want to enjoy access to the best and biggest sites on the Internet – local or international. With a clear understanding of how they work and the benefits they bring, you can take the necessary security measures so that you can surf the internet with confidence.
