Cookie Usage Policy
Applicability of this Policy
This Policy applies to the website www.alexiana.ro.
Furthermore, for identification purposes, the information in this document also applies to other online platforms that are operated by or on behalf of SC Alexiana Group SRL.
Disabling the cookies we use may affect your user experience on this website and other Alexiana Group websites.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small files, consisting of letters and numbers, that are stored on a user’s computer, mobile device, or other equipment from which the internet is accessed.
Cookies are installed through a request issued by a web server to a browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Chrome).
Cookies are entirely “passive” (they do 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. The lifespan 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 request personal information in order to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify internet users.
There are 2 main categories of cookies:
Session cookies: These are stored temporarily in the web browser’s cookie folder so that the browser can remember them until the user leaves the respective website or closes the browser window.
Persistent cookies: These are stored on a computer’s hard drive or device and are activated again when the user visits the website that created that specific cookie. Persistent cookies also include those placed by a website other than the one the user is currently visiting. These are known as “third-party cookies.” They remember a user’s interests to deliver the most relevant advertising to them.
What is the lifespan of a cookie?
The lifespan of a cookie can vary significantly depending on the purpose for which it is placed. Some cookies are meant for a single use (such as session cookies), so they are not maintained once the user leaves the website. Other cookies are maintained and reused every time the user returns to the site (persistent cookies). However, cookies can be deleted by the user at any time using browser settings.
What are third-party cookies?
Some sections of content on websites may be provided through third-party cookies, such as advertisements. Such cookies can be placed on the site and are referred to as third-party cookies because they are not placed by the site owner. These third parties are also obligated to comply with applicable legal regulations and privacy policies of the respective site owner.
Why are cookies important for the internet?
Cookies are the central point 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 can make some websites impossible to use. Refusing or disabling cookies does not mean you will no longer receive online advertising—it means that advertising will no longer be able to consider your preferences and interests highlighted through your browsing behavior. Examples of important uses of cookies (which do not require a user to authenticate through an account):
Content and services tailored to user preferences—product and service categories;
Offers tailored to user interests—password retention;
Retaining child protection filters for Internet content (family mode options, safe search functions);
Limiting the frequency of ad display—limiting the number of times a particular user sees an ad on a site;
Delivering more relevant advertising to the user;
Measurement, optimization, and Analytics features—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 (e.g., through search engines, direct, from other websites, etc.). Websites run these usage analyses to improve the sites for the benefit of users.
