Cookies Usage Policy

Cookie Usage Policy for www.sincron.net

 

The www.sincron.net website uses its own cookies and third-party cookies to provide visitors with a better online browsing experience and services tailored to the needs and interests of everyone.

In this information, you’ll find details about what cookies are, how we use them, the types of cookies that can be placed by visiting our site, and how you can manage, delete or reject them.

 

  1. What is a cookie?

Our site, like many others, stores and processes browser information using cookies. This information is stored on your computer, tablet or mobile phone and is used to make the site work as you expect it to. Cookies do not contain personal data but can be used to personalize the experience on our site.

An “Internet Cookie” (also known as “cookie browser” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file of letters and numbers that is stored on your computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user on which the Internet is accessed. The cookie is installed through a web browser (eg Internet Explorer, Chrome, Mozilla Firefox) and is completely “passive” (it does not contain software, viruses or spyware and can not access the information on the user’s hard drive).

A cookie consists of two parts: the name and the content or the value of the cookie. Furthermore, the duration 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 to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify Internet users.

The life of a cookie

Cookies are managed by web servers. The life of a cookie may vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed. There are 2 large categories of cookies:

Session cookies – they are temporarily stored in the web browser’s cookie folder so that they can be saved until the user exits the site or closes the browser window (for example, when logging in / out of an webmail account or social networking).

Persistent cookies – These are stored on the hard drive of a computer or equipment (and generally depends on the cookie’s pre-set life). Persistent cookies include those placed on a website other than the one the user is currently visiting – known as ‘third party cookies’ (cookies placed by third parties).

Cookies placed by third parties

Certain sections of content or actions on the site may be made through third parties / providers (eg news box, video or advertisement, all social media buttons). 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. These cookies can be used anonymously to store the interests of a user so that the advertising being delivered to be as relevant as possible. Third-party vendors must also comply with the applicable law and the site’s privacy policies.

Regardless of the type of cookie, they can be deleted by a user at any time through browser settings.

What are the benefits of cookies?

A cookie contains information linking a web browser (user) and a specific web-server (website). If a browser accesses that web-server again, it can read the already stored information and react accordingly.

Thus, cookies provide users with a pleasant browsing experience and support the efforts of many websites to provide user-friendly services, for example: personalizing certain settings such as the language in which a site is viewed, the currency in which certain prices or rates are expressed, saving shopping cart options, online privacy preferences, or relevant advertising. Also, through feedback on site usage, site owners can make them more effective and more accessible to users.

Blocking / disabling cookies does not mean that you will not receive online advertising anymore – just that it will no longer be able to keep track of your preferences and interests highlighted by your browsing behavior.

Examples of important uses of cookies (which do not require authentication of a user through an account):

  • Content and services tailored to user preferences – news categories, weather, sports, maps, public and government services, travel services
  • Offers tailored to the interests of users – retaining passwords, language preferences (eg displaying Romanian search results)
  • Retain Child Protection Filters for Content on the Internet (family mode options, safe search functions)
  • Limit ad serving frequency – limit the number of impressions of an ad for a particular user on a site
  • Providing more relevant advertising to the user
