Cookies are small files, used to access the Internet, which are stored on the computer, mobile device, tablet or other equipment of a particular User.
Cookies are installed through a request from the server of a specific web page to your web browser (eg Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, Mozilla) and are completely “passive” (they do not contain any software, viruses or spyware and have no access to the User’s hardware information).
Cookies are used in a way that allows the website to work better and more efficiently. Cookies are necessary to allow you to browse the website and use its services and features. Without these essential cookies, our website will not function as smoothly as we would like and we may not be able to provide you with certain services or features.
Cookies are also used to process anonymous statistics, which help us understand how a particular user prefers to use our Website, allowing us to improve its structure and contents, without identifying the user. The Appassionauto website may also use some WordPress features, software such as Google Analytics, Google Adsense or Google Adwords, Facebook, Twitter, Google+ or other social media “like” buttons or plug-ins, which contain cookies.
We use two types of cookies: for the user session and for fixed ones. The former are temporary files, which remain on the User’s device until the end of his user session or until the web browser is closed. Fixed files remain on the User’s device for the period specified in the cookies themselves or until they are deleted by the User.
Intended to make the website work as intended. For example, we use a cookie that tells us if you have already registered a user account.
Intended to remember information about how you prefer services to behave and look. For example, we use a cookie that tells us if you have refused to allow us to use your phone’s geolocation data.
Intended to allow or prevent notices of information or options that we believe will improve your use of the Service. For example, we use a cookie that prevents us from showing you the registration notification if you have already seen it.
It is intended to help us understand how visitors use the services. For example, we use a cookie that tells us how our search suggestions relate to your interactions with the search page.
Cookies are NOT viruses. They take the form of a simple text. They are not made of code and therefore cannot be executed or run on their own. As a result, they cannot be duplicated or copied to other networks to start and copy once again. Since cookies cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.
Very often, browsers have integrated privacy settings, which provide different levels for the acceptance of cookies, the period of their validity and their automatic deletion after a User has visited a particular website.
Here are some tips, which can guarantee safe navigation, but with the help of cookies:
· If you are the only person using the computer, you can set longer deadlines for expiration of browsing history storage and access to personal data.
· If you share access to your computer with someone, you can set your browser settings to delete browsing data every time you close your web browser.
· Make sure your browser is always up to date. Many of the attacks, based on cookies, are carried out by exploiting the weaknesses of old and outdated versions of web browsers. Cookies are everywhere and cannot be bypassed if you want to enjoy access to the best and largest websites on the Internet.
You can set your browser to no longer allow cookies to be accepted or set your browser to only accept cookies from certain websites. All modern browsers offer the ability to change cookie settings. This includes computer browsers and mobile browsers. These settings can be found in the “options” menu or in the “preferences” menu of your browser. To find these settings, you can also use the links below or use your browser’s “help” menu for more information.
