What is a cookie?

An HTTP cookie (also known as a browser cookie, internet cookie or simply cookie) is a small file that contains special text, often encoded, stored on a computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user from which it is access the internet. When the user visits a site (hosted on a server) a cookie is sent by the server to the web browser and then sent back (unchanged) by the browser, each time the site is accessed. Cookies are used for authentication as well as for tracking user behavior; Typical applications are the retention of user preferences and the implementation of the “shopping cart” system.

A cookie consists of 2 parts: name and value, being uniquely associated with the domain that is hosted by the site that sent it to the user’s browser (example edecon.ro).

The lifespan of a cookie is limited, depending on the purpose for which it is placed. Only the site that sent the cookie can access it again, and only when the user returns to that site. Cookies can be deleted by a user at any time via browser settings.

Cookies do not require personal information in order to be used and usually do not personally identify internet users.

Security and privacy issues

Cookies are not viruses! They consist only of data, not executable code, they cannot read or delete anything from the user’s computer or mobile terminal.

However, cookies can still be used for negative purposes. They allow the detection of pages visited by a user on one or more sites. This information can be collected in a user profile and can be used as a form of Spyware. Even if this profile is anonymous (it does not contain personal information such as name or address, unless the user has provided his personal data himself), it still contains an IP address. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this and constantly mark cookies to be deleted during anti-virus / anti-spyware deletion / scanning procedures.
