What are cookies and what they are used for?
Cookies are small data files consisting of a series of letters and numbers that are installed in the memory of a computer or other device used to browse online (phone, tablet, etc.) when the user accesses a specific website.
Cookies are installed by requesting the web server to a browser. Thus, the user-visited website sends information to its browser, which in turn will create a text file that will represent the cookie. Only the web server that sent the cookie can access it again when the user returns to the site of that server.
Cookies are completely passive, so they can not be executed like codes, nor can they be used to transmit software or viruses to the user. Also, even if the cookies are stored on the user’s hard disk, they can not access the information there.
Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify internet users. These are used to make the Site work the way you expect it and to give you a personalized web experience.
Cookie storage duration
Cookies are stored in the device for a specified period, which differs depending on the purpose for which they are used. Thus, some cookies are stored for one use (session cookies), and others are stored for a certain amount of time in order to be reused (persistent cookies).

Types of cookies used
Some cookies we use are absolutely necessary (cookies required). They have a defining meaning for the proper operation of the Site and allow you to navigate and use its features. The necessary cookies do not recognize your personal identification data. Without these, however, we can not provide effective Website functionality.
In addition to the necessary cookies, there are also performance cookies. These cookies collect information about how visitors use the Site, for example, which sections are visited more often and whether they receive error messages from them. These cookies collect shared information that does not identify any user. Performance cookies are used exclusively to improve Site performance.
We also use functionality cookies. These cookies allow the Site to “remember” the user’s options, such as name, language, or region to provide enhanced or personalized features. They can also be used to provide services that have been requested by the user, such as viewing videos or using online social media. The information collected by these cookies can become anonymous, and it is not possible to monitor the browsing of other web sites. If you do not accept these cookies, the effectiveness and functionality of the Site may be affected and your access to the content may be limited.
The types of cookies used by Allio Romania, their source, purpose and duration are set out in the following table:
