The information presented below is intended to inform about placing, using and administrating the “cookies” used by the website www.customsoft.io.

What is a “cookie”?
An internet cookie (also known as “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or “cookie”) is a small-dimensioned file composed of numbers and letters that will be stored on the computer, mobile device or other equipment that a user uses to access the Internet.
A cookie consists of two parts: name and content, or the value of the cookie. The duration of the existence of a cookie is determined; technically, only the webserver that sent the cookie can access it again the moment a user returns on a website associated with it.
Note: Cookie usage is safe because they are not software programs, viruses or spyware, and can’t access the information on the user’s hard drive. No personal information, such as phone number or e-mail, can be obtained by a cookie. Cookies can’t be used for e-mail and telemarketing campaigns.
Cookies help generate a user-friendly experience, adapted to the preferences and interests of the users (for example online confidentiality preferences, website language preferences, shopping carts, and relevant advertisements). The refusal or deactivation of cookies makes some websites impossible to use. Refusing or deactivating cookies does not mean that you will not receive online advertisements anymore, it means that your preferences based on your behavior will not be taken into account.
Cookies are classified into two major categories:
1. Session cookies
This type of cookies is stored temporarily in the cookie folder of your web browser, to memorize them until the user exits the website and closes the browser (for example the moment of login or log out of an e-mail account or social media).
2. Persistent cookies
This type of cookies is stored on the computer or equipment hard drive and depends on the preset duration of the cookie. Persistent cookies include those placed on another website than the one the user is visiting at that moment – also known as “third party cookies” – that can be used anonymously to memorize the interests of a user and deliver relevant advertisements.
Cookies have an important role in facilitating the access and delivery of a multitude of services that the users might enjoy while using the Internet, such as:
- Customizing some setting, such as: the language a website is displayed in, currency, keeping options for various products (sizing or other details) in the shopping cart – generating this way the “flexibility of the shopping cart” (accessing older preference by accessing the “back” and “forward” buttons).
- Cookies provide website owners with valuable feedback on how users use their websites, so they can make them even more efficient and accessible.
- Allowing apps (multimedia or another kind) to be included on a website to create a more useful, pleasurable and valuable experience.
- Providing relevant advertisements for the user.
