Cookies policy

1. Cookie Usage Policy

This policy refers to cookies and webpages run by the Romanian Standardization Association based in Bucharest, 21-25 Mendeleev Street, Romania.

2. What is a Cookie?

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 browser request from a browser (eg Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely “passive” (does not contain software, viruses or spyware and can not access the information on the user’s hard drive) .

3. What are Cookies used for?

These files make it possible to recognize the user’s terminal and present the content in a relevant way, adapted to the user’s preferences. Cookies provide users with a pleasant browsing experience and support ASRO’s efforts to provide user-friendly services: ex: – online privacy preferences, shopping cart or relevant advertising.

They are also used to prepare aggregated anonymous statistics that help us understand how a user benefits from our web pages, allowing us to improve their structure and content, excluding the user’s personal identification.

4. What Cookies do we use?

We use two types of Cookies : per session and fixed. All sessions are temporary files that remain in the user’s terminal until the end of the session or the closing of the application (the web browser). The fixed ones remain on the user’s terminal for a period defined by the Cookie’s parameters or until they are deleted manually by the user.

5. How are Cookies used by this site?

A visit to this site may place cookies for purposes of:

·         Site performance cookies

  • Required cookies

·         Visitor analysis cookies

  • Marketing cookies

6. Does cookies with personal data work?

Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify internet users. Personal data collected through the use of Cookies can only be collected to facilitate certain user functions. Such data is encrypted in a way that makes unauthorized persons unaffected access to them.

7. Delete cookies

In general, an application used to access web pages allows you to save your Cookies to the terminal by default. These settings can be changed in such a way that the automatic administration of Cookies is blocked by the web browser or the user is informed whenever cookies are sent to his or her terminal. Detailed information about the possibilities and ways of managing cookies can be found in the application settings area (the web browser). Restricting the use of Cookies may affect certain features of the web page.

8. Why are cookies important for internet?

Cookies are the central focus of the efficient Internet, helping to generate a friendly browsing experience and tailored to the preferences and interests of each user. Denying or disabling cookies can make some sites unusable.

Denying or disabling cookies does’t mean you will not receive online advertising – just that it will no longer be able to keep in mind 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):

·         Retrieve 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

·         Provide more relevant advertising for 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 reaches a website (eg through search engines, directly from other websites etc.). Websites run these analyzes of their use to improve sites for the benefit of users.
