Document informing users about the presence of cookies on the site.
The www.vmcomp.ro website uses cookies.
The following information is intended to inform the user about the placement, use and management of cookies used by www.vmcomp.ro.

Please read the following information carefully:
This website uses its own and third-party cookies to provide visitors with a much better browsing experience and services tailored to their needs and interests. In what we call "web 2.0", "cookies" play an important role in facilitating access to and delivery of the many services users enjoy on the Internet, such as:
Cookies provide site owners with valuable feedback on how their sites are used by users, so they can make them even more effective and accessible to users.
They allow multimedia or other applications from other sites to be embedded on a particular site to create a more valuable, useful and enjoyable browsing experience;
Improve the effectiveness of online advertising.

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, that will be stored on a user's computer, mobile device or other equipment from which the Internet is accessed.The cookie is installed by a request issued by a web-server to a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely "passive" (does not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access 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; technically, only the webserver that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the website associated with that webserver.

Cookies themselves do not require personal information in order to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify Internet users.

Session cookies - these are temporarily stored in the web browser's cookie folder for the browser to remember until the user exits the website or closes the browser window (e.g. when logging in/out of a webmail account or social network).

Persistent cookies - These are stored on the hard drive of a computer or device (and generally depend on the default lifetime of the cookie). Persistent cookies also include those placed by a website other than the one the user is currently visiting - known as 'third party cookies' - which can be used anonymously to remember a user's interests so that more relevant advertising can be delivered to users.

A cookie contains information that links a web-browser (the user) to 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 convenient services to users: e.g. online privacy preferences, site language options, shopping carts or relevant advertising.

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 ('permanent cookies'). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time via the browser settings.

Certain sections of content on some websites may be provided through third party providers (e.g. a news box, a video or an advertisement). These third parties may also place cookies through the site and they are called "third party cookies" because they are not placed by the owner of that website. Third party providers must also comply with applicable law and the privacy policies of the site owner.

Your visit to this site may place cookies for the purposes of:
Site performance cookies
Visitor analytics cookies
Geotargeting cookies
Advertising cookies
Advertising provider cookies
These cookies may come from the following third parties: (Google, Facebook )

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

Every time a user visits this site the analytics software provided by a third party generates a user analytics cookie. This cookie tells us whether you have visited this site before. Your browser will tell us if you have this cookie, and if not, we will generate one. It allows us to track unique users who visit us and how often they do so. As long as you are not registered on this site, this cookie cannot be used to identify individuals, they are only used for statistical purposes. If you are registered we may also know the details you have provided to us, such as your email address and username - these are subject to the privacy and confidentiality provisions of our Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policy and the provisions of current legislation on the protection of personal data.

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

These cookies allow us to know whether or not you have viewed an online advertisement, what type of advertisement it is and how long it has been since you saw the advertisement. We also use these cookies to target online advertising. We may also use cookies belonging to a third party to better target advertising, for example to show holiday adverts if the user has recently visited an article on the site about holidays. These cookies are anonymous, they store information about the content viewed, not about users. We also set anonymous cookies through other sites we advertise on. By receiving them, we can then use them to recognize you as a visitor to that site if you subsequently visit our site, we will be able to deliver advertising to you based on this information.

Much of the advertising you find on this site is from third parties. Some of these parties use their own anonymous cookies to analyze how many people have been exposed to an advertisement, or to see how many people have been exposed to the same advertisement multiple 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 may be used to show you targeted advertising on other sites based on your browsing on this site.

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

Cookies store information in a small text file that allows a website to recognise a browser. The web server will recognise the browser until the cookie expires or is deleted.
The cookie stores important information that improves the web browsing experience (e.g.: setting the language in which you want to access a site; keeping a user logged into a webmail account; online banking security; keeping products in your shopping cart).

Cookies are at the heart of the efficient functioning of the Internet, helping to generate a user-friendly browsing experience tailored to each user's preferences and interests. Refusing or disabling cookies may make some sites unusable.
Refusing or disabling cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising - it just means that it will no longer be able to take into account your preferences and interests as evidenced by your browsing behaviour.

- Content and services tailored to user preferences - news categories, weather, sports, maps, public and government services, entertainment sites and travel services.
- Offers tailored to user interests - password retention, language preferences (e.g. displaying search results in English).
- Retention of child protection filters on Internet content (family mode options, safe search functions).
- Limiting the frequency of ads - limiting the number of times an ad is displayed for a given user on a site.
- Providing more relevant advertising to the user.
- Measurement, optimisation and analytics features - such as confirming a certain level of traffic to a website, what type of content is being viewed and how a user gets to a website (e.g. via search engines, directly, from other websites etc). Websites perform these usage analytics to improve their websites for the benefit of users.

Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code so they cannot be executed or run themselves. 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 many other sites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this fact and constantly flag cookies for deletion as part of anti-virus/anti-spyware deletion/scanning procedures. Browsers generally 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.

Other security issues related to cookies
As identity protection is very valuable and is the right of every internet user, it is advisable to know what possible problems cookies can create. Because cookies constantly transmit information back and forth between the browser and the website, if an attacker or unauthorised 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 WiFi network).
Other cookie-based attacks involve incorrect cookie settings 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. Attackers then use the information to gain unauthorised access to certain websites. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most appropriate method of protecting personal information.

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 Youtube, Gmail, Yahoo and others.
Here are a few tips that can ensure you don't have to worry about cookies:
Customize your browser's cookie settings to reflect a level of cookie security that is comfortable for you.
If you don't mind cookies and you 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 one option to access sites that place cookies and delete any visit information when you close your browsing session.
Install and constantly update 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 exploit 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.

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. 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.
To understand these settings, the following links may be useful, otherwise you can use your browser's "help" option for more details.
