How we use cookies

Thank you for choosing to pay us a virtual visit! This website is operated by Prokuria S.R.L. - a limited liability company validly organized under the laws of Romania, having its registered office located at Strada Rasuri nr. 8, room 8, Sector 2, Bucharest, Romania, registered with the Trade Register under no. J40/13198/2016, with unique registration code (CUI) 36609013 and EUID ROONRC.J40/13198/2016 ("Prokuria").

Like any other website, this one ( www.prokuria.com, app.prokuria.com ) uses cookies for purposes related to operating, improving and customizing your browsing experience according to your preferences, retaining login information so that you do not have to register each time you visit, protecting the security of your and our systems, or providing statistics for the provision of Prokuria services. For example, some cookies provide us with important information about how visitors access and use our site, which then allows us to make it more relevant to their needs, and other cookies allow us to see how many users access our site in a given period. 

Because we like transparency, below we give you details about the cookies on this site and the choices you have about enabling or disabling them. However, please keep in mind that, like all websites, our website relies on this technology in order to function optimally, so if you refuse to allow it to work, then the quality of your browsing or platform experience will suffer. 

What is a cookie?

Some people refer to cookies as Internet cookies, browser cookies or HTTP cookies. These are several names for one and the same technology, popularly called cookies. 

 

A cookie is a small fragment of text (letters and numbers) that will be stored on a user's computer, mobile devices or other equipment from which the www.prokuria.com, app.prokuria.com websites are accessed. Cookies consist of two parts: their name and their content (or value). 

What are cookies used for? 

With the help of cookies, websites retain information about the user's visit, such as: preferred language, username and password (so that re-registration is not required each time the user visits the site - only if the user opts for this option), the type of device used (computer, mobile phone, etc.) to access the site or the services or products that the user has viewed/added to the virtual shopping cart (if applicable). Cookies make it possible to simplify the browsing experience on a website and allow website owners to provide more relevant information to users, depending on their needs. 

Cookies help the Internet work efficiently and result in a friendly, efficient and personalised browsing experience for each user. Without them, websites would be much more unpleasant or boring and would not be able to respond effectively to users' needs. 

What's more, cookies help site owners to continually develop their sites. Cookies can gain valuable insights into how visitors use the website so that they can be provided with better and better browsing experiences. 

      

What are the main types of cookies? 

There are cookies that are deleted as soon as you close your Internet browser (these are also called session cookies) and cookies that are stored on your device for the purpose of being used including for your next visits to the site (these are also called persistent cookies although, despite the name, they expire after a period of time). Persistent cookies are reactivated when you revisit the site that placed them on your device. 

Depending on who places them on your device, there are cookies of our own (which we place on your device) or cookies placed by others (these are also called third-party cookies).  

How long does a cookie last? 

Cookies are managed by web servers. The lifetime of a cookie can vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed. Some cookies are used exclusively for a single session (session cookies) and are no longer retained once the user has left the website and some cookies are retained and reused each time the user returns to that website (permanent cookies). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time via browser settings.

Are cookies dangerous for my device? 

Cookies are harmless. They do not contain software, viruses or other harmful files and cannot access information on the user's device. Because cookies are set by requesting an Internet browser (its webserver), only the webserver that sent them can access them again when the user returns to the site associated with that webserver. 

However, cookies can be used for negative purposes, as a form of spyware. Many anti-spyware products, however, mark cookies for deletion as part of anti-virus/anti-spyware removal/scanning procedures. 

In general, browsers have privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, validity period and automatic deletion after the user has visited a website. 

Do I need my consent for cookies? 

You do not need to expressly consent to the use of cookies on this website except for cookies that (i) are not essential to the operation of the website and (ii) are not strictly necessary to provide you with access to the requested website service (feature). 

Do cookies have anything to do with my personal data? 

Some cookies collect anonymous information that does not tell us anything about you. Others collect information that can identify you, such as your IP address or preferences for certain products.

 

All right. But does the website I'm on use cookies? 

Every website uses cookies. Without them, the Internet probably wouldn't be what it is today. 

In short, our platform uses our own and third-party cookies to provide visitors with a superior browsing experience and services that are enjoyable, useful and tailored to their specific needs.  

 

What are the specific purposes for which the site uses cookies? 

We use cookies on the site for several specific purposes. For example: 

  • site performance;

  • visitor analysis ;

  • geotargeting (software that determines country of origin);

  • registration (account to access the site and permission for certain types of services);

  • for advertising on other sites across the web;

  • to perform data analysis and monitor usage trends (of advertisers).

Both our cookies and third-party cookies are present on this site. 

 

Our cookies 

In many cases, cookies do not retrieve information associated with a person we have identified or can identify. This means that those cookies will not retain your personal data, so you will remain anonymous. 

 

If you are registered on our website we may also know the details you have provided to us, such as your email address and username - these are subject to the privacy and confidentiality provisions of our Terms and Conditions, Privacy Policy as well as the provisions of applicable legislation on the protection of personal data.

Third-party cookies 

There are situations where parts of other sites may appear on our site. For example, a Facebook like button or a YouTube video - these days, these options are present on almost every site. When these elements appear on our site, it means that we have allowed the companies that own those platforms to place cookies on it.

We allow a number of third party cookies on our site, but access is not open to everyone. Third party cookies are used primarily to provide you with a more useful experience and to produce statistics about the number of visitors and how they use our site. For example, like or share buttons on websites may allow social networks to place cookies on the website. 

As these third party cookies and the information they may collect are not under our control, please refer to the respective providers' policies for more information. As these are sites operated by other parties, the cookies that allow their content to be placed on our site come from their operators, not from us. Third parties may use cookies for their own purposes.

On some pages, third parties may set their own anonymous cookies in order to track the success of an application or to customize an application. Due to the way we use it, this site cannot access these cookies, just as third parties cannot access cookies held by this site.

For example, when you share an article using the social media button on this site, that social network will record your activity.
