Cookie Usage Policy
This policy applies to cookies and web pages operated by PassionbyD.com.
The cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that will be stored on your computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user accessing the Internet. The cookie is installed through a web-server request sent it to a browser (like Safari, Chrome) and is completely “passive” (it does not contain software, viruses or spyware and can not access the information on the user’s hard drive).

Cookies provide users with an enjoyable browsing experience and support Passionbyd.ro efforts to provide user-friendly services: ex: online shopping preferences, relevant shopping cart or relevant advertising.

Fixed files remain on the user’s terminal for a while in the Cookie’s parameters or until they are deleted manually by the user.

9. Security and privacy issues.
Cookies are NOT Viruses! They use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code so they can not be executed or can auto-run. Consequently, they can not duplicate or replicate on other networks to run or replicate again. Because they can not perform these functions, they can not be considered viruses. Cookies can still be used for negative purposes.
Because it stores information about user preferences and browsing history, both on a particular site and on several other sites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this and consistently mark cookies to be deleted in anti-virus / anti-spyware removal / scanning procedures.
In general, browsers have built in privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, shelf life, and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular site.
Other security issues related to cookies:
Because identity protection is very valuable and is the right of every internet user, it is advisable to know what problems can create cookies. In order to transmit constant information in both ways between the browser and the website, if an attacker or unauthorized person intervenes in the data transmission path, the information contained in the cookie can be intercepted.
Although very rarely, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (eg an unsecured WiFi network).
Other cookie-based attacks involve bad cookie settings on servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to prevent browsers from sending information via unsecured channels. Attackers then use information for unauthorized access to certain sites. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most appropriate method of protecting personal information.
