The following information is intended to inform the users of this website about the placement, use and management of cookies in the context of users browsing this website.
2. What are cookies?
We use the term “cookies” to refer to cookie modules and similar technologies through which information can be collected automatically.
An “Internet Cookie” (term also known as “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or “cookie”) represents a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, which will be stored on the computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user through which the Internet is accessed.
Cookies are installed by the request issued by a web server to a browser (eg: Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome). Once installed, the cookies have a specific duration of existence, remaining “passive”, in the sense that they do not contain software programs, viruses or spyware and will not access the information on the user’s device on whose equipment they were installed.
A cookie consists of two parts:
- the name of the cookie; and
- the content or value of the cookie.
From a technical point of view, only the web server that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the web page associated with that web server.

4. Social Plugins
When visiting our web page, these buttons are disabled, that is, you do not transmit any data to the respective social networks. Before you can use these buttons, you must proactively activate them with a click. The button remains active until you deactivate or delete your cookie files.
After activation, a direct connection is created with the server of the respective social network. The content of this button is transmitted by the social network directly to your browser, which integrates the button in the page. After activating a button, the respective social network can already collect data, regardless of whether you interact with the respective button or not. If you are connected to social networks, they can allocate your visit to the web page of your user account. Visiting other web pages will not be assigned by the social network to your account before you activate the respective buttons on those pages. If you are a member of a social network and you do not want this to be recorded when you visit our website and to be correlated with your saved data related to that member account, you must log out of that social network before activating the buttons . We cannot view the content of data collected by social networks with the help of their buttons. For information on the purpose and volume of data collection and the subsequent processing and use of data by the respective social networks, as well as on your rights in this regard and the configuration possibilities to protect your private space, please consult the data protection information of respective social networks.
Social plug-ins from Facebook are used on our web pages. If you visit one of our web pages that contains such a plug-in, this fact does not create a link with this company. This only happens if you explicitly express your consent, which is requested when you click on a corresponding button.
For information on the purpose and volume of data collection and the subsequent processing and use of data by Facebook, as well as on your rights in this regard and the configuration options for protecting your private space, please consult the information on data protection from Facebook
If you do not want Facebook to associate the data collected when accessing our web page with your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook when accessing our web page.

5. Security and privacy issues
Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code, so they cannot be executed or auto-run. Consequently, they cannot be duplicated or replicated on other networks to run or replicate again. Since they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.
Cookies can still be used for negative purposes. Because they store information about the preferences and browsing history of users, both on a specific site and on several other sites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this fact and constantly mark cookies to be deleted during anti-virus/anti-spyware deletion/scanning procedures.
In general, browsers have integrated privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, validity period and automatic deletion after the user has visited a certain site.
Other security aspects related to cookies:
Since identity protection is very valuable and represents the right of every internet user, it is advisable to know what possible problems cookies can create. Because through them, information is constantly transmitted in both directions between the browser and the website, if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes during data transmission, 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 (ex: an unsecured WiFi network).
Other cookie-based attacks involve missetting cookies 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. The attackers then use the information to gain unauthorized access to certain websites. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most suitable method of personal information protection.
