Cookies policy
This policy refers to cookies and web pages operated by www.rromaniart.eu

This website uses cookies to provide visitors with a much better browsing experience and services adapted to everyone's needs and interests. In what we call "web 2.0", "cookies" play an important role in facilitating the access and delivery of the multiple services that the user enjoys on the Internet, such as:

customizing certain settings, such as the language in which a site is viewed;
cookies offer site owners valuable feedback on how their sites are used by users, so that they can make them even more efficient and accessible for users;
allow multimedia or other applications from other sites to be included in a certain site to create a more valuable, useful and pleasant browsing experience;
improve the effectiveness of online advertising.
What is a cookie?
An Internet Cookie (term also known as browser cookie or HTTP cookie or simply cookie) is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, which will be stored on the computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user from which the Internet is accessed.

The cookie is installed through the request issued by a web server to a browser (eg: Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely passive (does not contain software programs, 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. Moreover, the duration of existence 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:

Session cookies - they are temporarily stored in the cookie file of the web browser so that it remembers them until the user leaves the respective website or closes the browser window (eg: when logging in/out of a webmail account or on networks of socialization).
Persistent cookies – They are stored on the hard drive of a computer or equipment (and generally depends on the lifetime of the cookie). 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 interests to a user, so that the most relevant advertising for users is delivered.
What are the advantages of cookies?
A cookie contains information that connects a web-browser (the user) and a specific web-server (the website). If a browser accesses that web-server again, it can read the information already stored and react accordingly. Cookies provide users with a pleasant browsing experience and support the efforts of many websites to offer comfortable services to users: eg - online privacy preferences, website language options or relevant advertising.

What are Cookies used for?
These files make it possible to recognize the user's terminal and present the content in a relevant way, adapted to the user's preferences. Cookies provide users with a pleasant browsing experience and support the efforts of povestiromantice.ro to provide comfortable services to users. They are also used in the preparation of aggregate anonymous statistics that help us understand how a user benefits from our web pages, allowing us to improve their structure and content, excluding the user's personal identification.

What cookies do we use?
We use two types of Cookies: per session and fixed. The latter are temporary files that remain on the user's terminal until the session ends or the application (web browser) is closed. The fixed files remain on the user's terminal for a period in the Cookie parameters or until they are manually deleted by the user.

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 has left the website and some cookies are retained and reused every time the user returns to that website (cookies permanent). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time through the browser settings.

Website performance cookies
Visitor analysis cookies
Cookies for geotargetting
Cookies for advertising
Advertising provider cookies
These cookies may come from the following third parties: Google, Facebook.

Performance cookies

This type of cookie remembers the user's preferences on this site, so there is no need to set them every time you visit the site.

Examples:

volume settings for the video player
the video streaming speed with which the browser is compatible
Cookies for visitor analysis

Every time a user visits this site, the analytics software provided by a third party generates a user analysis cookie. This cookie tells us if you have visited this site before. The browser will tell us if you have this cookie, and if not, we will generate one. It allows the monitoring of unique users who visit us and how often they do so.

This cookie cannot be used to identify individuals, they are used only for statistical purposes.

Cookies for geotargetting

These cookies are used by a software that determines which country you come from. It is completely anonymous and is only used to target the content - even when you are on our page in Romanian or in another language, you receive the same advertisement.

Cookies for advertising

These cookies allow us to find out if you have viewed an online advertisement or not, what is its type and how much time has passed since you saw the advertising message.

We also use these cookies to target online advertising. We may also use cookies belonging to a third party, for better targeting of advertising, to show, for example, advertisements about vacations, if the user has recently visited an article on the site about vacations. These cookies are anonymous, they store information about the viewed content, not about users.

We also set anonymous cookies through other sites on which we advertise. By receiving them in this way, we can use them to recognize you as a visitor of that site if you later visit our site, we will be able to deliver advertising based on this information.

Advertising provider cookies

A large part of the advertising you find on this site belongs to third parties. Some of these parties use their own anonymous cookies to analyze how many people have been exposed to an advertising message, or to see how many people have been exposed to the same advertisement several times.

The companies that generate these cookies have their own privacy policies, and this site does not have access to read or write these cookies. Third-party cookies can be used to show you targeted advertising on other sites as well, based on your browsing on this site.

Other third-party cookies

On some pages, third parties can set their own anonymous cookies, in order to track the success of an application or to customize an application. Due to the way of use, this site cannot access these cookies, just as third parties cannot access the cookies owned by this site.

For example, when you share an article using the social network button on this site, that social network will record your activity.

What are cookies placed by third parties?
Certain sections of content on some sites may be provided through third parties/providers (eg: news box, a video or an advertisement). These third parties can also place cookies through the website and they are called third party cookies because they are not placed by the owner of the respective website. Third-party providers must also comply with the law in force and the privacy policies of the website owner.

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. The personal data collected through the use of Cookies can only be collected to facilitate certain functionalities for the user. Such data are encrypted in a way that makes it impossible for unauthorized persons to access them.

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 on 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 they store information about the preferences and browsing history of users, both on a specific 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 mark cookies to be deleted 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 unauthorized person intervenes during data transmission, 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 (ex: an unsecured WiFi network).

Other cookie-based attacks involve missetting cookies on servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to trick browsers into sending information through unsecured channels. The 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.

Why are cookies important to the Internet?
Cookies represent the central point of the efficient functioning of the Internet, helping to generate a friendly browsing experience adapted to the preferences and interests of each user. Rejecting or disabling cookies may make some sites unusable.

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 your browsing behavior.

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

Content and services adapted to the user's preferences, e.g. categories of products and services.
Offers tailored to users' interests
Retention of child protection filters regarding Internet content (family mode options, safe search functions).
Limiting the broadcast frequency of advertisements, e.g. limiting the number of ad displays for a specific user on a site.
Providing more relevant advertising to the user.
Measurement, optimization and analytics features e.g. 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 (eg through search engines, directly, from other websites, etc.). The websites carry out these analyzes of their use in order to improve the sites for the benefit of the users.
How can I stop cookies?
Disabling and refusing to receive cookies can make certain websites 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 the browser so that these cookies are no longer accepted or you can set the browser to accept cookies from a specific site. But, for example, if you are not registered using cookies, you will not be able to leave comments.

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

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. Deactivating cookies will not allow the user access to the most widespread and used sites, including YouTube, Gmail, Yahoo and others.

Here are some tips that can ensure that you browse without worries, but with the help of cookies:

Customize your browser settings regarding cookies to reflect a comfortable level of cookie security for you.
If you don't mind cookies and you are the only person using the computer, you can set long expiration dates for storing browsing history and personal access data.
If you share access to the computer, you may consider setting your browser to delete individual browsing data each time you close the browser. This is an option to access the sites that place cookies and to delete any visit information at the end of the browsing session.
Install and constantly update your antispyware applications.
Many of the spyware detection and prevention applications include detection of attacks on websites. Thus, it prevents the browser from accessing websites that could exploit the vulnerabilities of the browser or download dangerous software.
