8. Cookie modules use policy
This policy refers to the cookies and web pages operated by the Decorint company.
If you visit our web page, your personal data are automatically registered with the aid of cookies.
The Cookies aim is to learn the sources from which the visitors come on the site, how long they stay there, respectively, which are the most accessed sections of the sites. With the help of such information we may improve the site content.
8.1. What are the Cookies?
The Cookie is a small file composed of letters and numbers which will be stored on the computer, mobile terminal or other devices of a user from which such user accesses the internet. The Cookie is uploaded by the request sent by a web-server to a browser (e.g.: Internet Explorer, Chrome) and it is completely “passive” (it does not contain software programs, viruses or spyware and it cannot access the information on the user’s hard drive).
8.2. What are Cookies used for?
Those files make possible the recognition of the user’s terminal and the introduction of the content in a relevant manner adapted to the user’s preferences. Cookies provide the users with a pleasant navigation experience and support Decorint efforts to offer comfortable services to the users. Also, they are used with the preparation of certain aggregate anonymous statistics which help us understand how a user benefits of our web pages, allowing us the improve their structure and content, excluding the user’s personal identification.
8.3. What cookies do we use?
We use two types of cookies: per session and fixed. The last ones are temporary files which stay in the user’s terminal until the end of the session or application closure (the web browser). The fixed files stay on the user’s terminal for the period within the cookie parameters or until they are manually deleted by the user

8.4. How are the cookies used by this site?
A visit on this site may place cookies for aims like:

  • Site performance cookies
  • Visitors’ analysis cookies
  • Geo targeting cookies
  • Registration cookies
  • Advertising cookies
  • Advertising suppliers’ cookies

8.5. Do cookies contain personal data?
Cookies by themselves do not request personal information in order to be able to be used and, in most of the cases, do not identify in person the internet users. Personal data collected through the use of cookie may be collected just to facilitate certain functionalities for the user. Such data are encrypted in a way that renders impossible unauthorized persons’ access to them.
8.6. Cookies deletion
Generally, an application used to access web pages allows for the implicit cookie save on the terminal. Such settings may be changed in such a way that cookies automatic administration be blocked by the web browser or the user is informed each time cookies are sent to his terminal. Detailed information on the possibilities and cookies administration ways may be found in the application settings area (of the web browser). The limitation of cookie use may affect certain functionalities of the web page.
8.7. Why are cookies important for the Internet?
Cookies represent the central point of the efficient functioning of the Internet, helping the generation of a friendly navigation experience and adapted to each user’s preferences and interests. Cookies denial or deactivation may render some sites impossible to use. Cookies denial or deactivation does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising – just that such advertising will no longer be able to take into account your preferences and interested highlighted by the navigation behavior. Examples of important cookie uses (which do not require the authentication of a user through an account):

  • Content and services adapted to the user’s preferences – categories of products and services
  • Offers adapted to the users’ interests – passwords holding
  • Holding of the children protection filters regarding the content on the Internet (family mode options, safe search functions)
  • Limitation of the ads broadcast frequency – limitation of the number of posts of an ad for a certain user of the site
  • Measurement, optimization and analytics characteristics – like the confirmation of a certain traffic level on a website, what type of content is visualized and the manner in which a user arrives on a website (e.g. through search engines, directly, from other websites etc). Websites run those analyses of their use in order to improve the sites to the benefit of the users

8.8. Safety and privacy related issues
Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text type formats. They are not made of code pieces so they cannot be executed nor can they run by themselves. Consequently, they cannot duplicate or replicate on other networks in order to run or replicate again. As they cannot accomplish those functions, they cannot be considered viruses. Still, cookies may be used for negative purposes. Because they store information on the users’ preferences and navigation history, both on a certain site and on several sites, cookies may be used as a form of Spyware. Several anti-spyware products are conscious of this and constantly mark the cookies to be deleted during the anti-virus/anti-spyware deletion/scan procedures. Generally, browsers have integrated privacy settings which provide different levels of cookie acceptance, the validity and automatic deletion period after the user visited a certain site. Other cookie related safety issues: as identity protection is very valuable and represents each internet user’s right, it is indicated to know what eventual problems may cookies create. Because through them information is sent both ways between the browser and the site, if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes during data transmission, the information contained by the cookies may be intercepted. Though very rarely, this may happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (e.g.: an unsecured Wi-Fi network). Other cookie-based attacks imply wrong cookie settings on servers. If a website does not require the browser to use just encrypted channels, the attackers may use this vulnerability to cheat browsers to send information through unsecured channels. The attackers use then the information in order to access certain sites without authorization. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most adequate protection method to protect our personal information.
8.9. Advice for a cookie based safe and responsible navigation
Decorint uses third party cookies (e.g.: Google: Analytics, Search Console, AdSense; Microsoft: Bing and from the suppliers of the servers which host the sites).
Due to their flexibility and to the fact that the majority of the most visited sites and the greatest use cookies, they are almost inevitable. Cookies deactivation will not allow the user’s access on the most spread and used sites among which YouTube, Gmail, Yahoo and others. Here you have some advice which assure you navigate safely, but with the help of cookies: customize the browser setting in what concerns the cookies in order to reflect a comfortable level for you in terms of cookie use safety. If you do not mind cookies and are the only person who uses the computer you mat set long expiry terms for the storage of the navigation history and the access personal data. If you share the access to the computer, you may consider setting the browser to erase the navigation individual data each time you shut down the browser. This is a variant to access sites which place cookies and to erase any visiting information upon the end of the navigation session. Constantly install and update anti-spyware applications. Many of the spyware detection and prevention include detection of attacks on sites. Thus, they prevent the browser to access websites which might exploit the vulnerability of the browser or download dangerous software. Make sure you always have the browser updated. Many of the cookie-based attacks are achieved by the exploitation of the weak point of older versions of the browsers. Cookies are everywhere and cannot be avoided if you wish to enjoy the access on the best and greatest Internet sites – local or international. With a clear understanding of their mode of operation and of the benefits they bring, you may adopt the necessary safety measures to that you may navigate with confidence on the Internet. Cookies deactivation and reception denial may render certain sites impracticable or difficult to visit and use. Also, the denial to accept cookies does not mean you will never receive/see online advertising. It is possible to set the browser so that those cookies will no longer be accepted or you may set the browser to accept cookies from a certain site. But, for example, if you are not registered using cookies, you may not leave comments. All the modern browsers offer the possibility to change cookie settings. These settings usually may be found in “options” or in the “preferences” menu of your browser. To understand these settings, the following links may be useful, otherwise you may use the “help” option of your browser for further details:
