This policy refers to cookies and web pages operated by SC PETRA SRL.
What are Cookies?
A cookie is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, that will be stored on the computer, mobile terminal, or other equipment of a user from whom the Internet is accessed. The cookie is installed by the request issued by a web server to a browser (eg Internet Explorer, Google Chrome) and is completely “passive” (does not contain software, viruses, or spyware and can not access the information on the user’s hard drive).
1. 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 the efforts of SC PETRA SRL to offer comfortable services to users: eg: – preferences in terms of online privacy. They are also used in the preparation of anonymous aggregate 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.
2. What cookies do we use?
We use two types of cookies: per session and fixed. The last ones are temporary files that remain in the user’s terminal until the end of the session or closing the application (web browser). The fixed files remain on the user’s terminal for a period set in the cookie parameters or until they are manually deleted by the user.
3. How are cookies used by this site?
A visit to this site may place cookies for the purposes of:
• Site performance cookies
• Cookies for visitor analysis
• Cookies for geotargetting

6. Why are cookies important for the Internet?
Cookies represent the central point of the efficient functioning of the Internet, helping to generate a friendly browsing experience and adapted to the preferences and interests of each user. Declining or disabling cookies may make some sites impossible to use.
Refusing or disabling cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising – but only that it will no longer be able to take into account your preferences and interests, highlighted by your browsing behavior.
7. Security and privacy issues
Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code so they cannot be executed or auto-run. Consequently, they cannot be duplicated or replicated on other networks to run or replicate again. Because they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.
However, cookies can be used for negative purposes. Because it stores information about user’s 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 constantly mark cookies to be deleted during anti-virus / anti-spyware removal/scanning procedures.
In general, browsers have integrated privacy settings that provide different levels of acceptance of cookies, validity periods, and automatic deletion after the user has visited a particular site.
8. Tips for safe and responsible browsing, based on cookies.
Here are some tips that can ensure that you navigate without worries but with the help of cookies:
• Customize your browser settings for cookies to reflect a comfortable level of cookie security for you.
• If you do not mind cookies and you are the only person using the computer, you can set long expiration dates for storing your browsing history and personal access data.
• If you share access to your computer, you may want to consider setting your browser to clear individual browsing data each time you close your browser.
This is an option to access the sites that place cookies and to delete any visitor information at the end of the browsing session.
• Install and constantly update your antispyware applications.
Many of the spyware detection and prevention applications include site attack detection. This prevents the browser from accessing websites that could exploit browser vulnerabilities or download malicious software.
Make sure your browser is always up to date.
Many cookie-based attacks are exploited by exploiting the weaknesses of older versions of browsers.
Cookies are everywhere and cannot be avoided if you want to enjoy access to the best and largest sites on the Internet – local or international. With a clear understanding of how they operate and the benefits they bring, you can take the necessary security measures so that you can surf the Internet with confidence.
Disabling and refusing to receive cookies may make certain sites impractical or difficult to visit and use. Also, the refusal to accept cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive/see online advertising.
It is possible to set in the browser so that these cookies are no longer accepted or you can set the browser to accept cookies from a specific site. But, for example, if you are not registered using cookies, you will not be able to leave comments.
All modern browsers offer the ability to change cookie settings. These settings are usually found in the “options” or “preferences” menu of your browser.
To understand these settings, the following links may be useful, otherwise you can use the “help” option of the browser for more details.
