  1. Introduction

This Cookie Policy applies to all users of the website – the information presented below is intended to inform users of this website about the placement, use and management of cookies by EL-CAR SRL in the context of users’ browsing on this website.

  1. What are cookies?

Essentially, cookies are a small amount of data that is transmitted between a sender and a recipient. A cookie is created and interpreted by the sender, while the recipient simply stores it and sends it back if the sender asks for it.

When browsing the Internet, the sender is the server that hosts a website and the receiver is the Internet browser of the user visiting that website. Their purpose is to identify the user, check their past activity on that site and provide specific content based on this data.

When a user visits a website for the first time, the server stores a specific cookie in the user’s web browser. On all subsequent visits after this first visit, the server will ask its cookie to read it and load a particular configuration of the website that is most appropriate for that user. You can view cookies as a label that servers apply to each user, then read them to identify users.

This identification is especially useful on websites where real-time user data is critical. For example, when you use an online shop, you wouldn’t be able to buy anything without cookies. Stores would not be able to identify and assign you a shopping cart without them because every time you load a new page, the store would see you as a new user and create a new cart.

As such, cookies are widely used on the internet because they allow websites to be more powerful by providing dynamic and useful content to each user. In some cases websites cannot function without using cookies. They also allow websites to collect data about their users and the pages they visit. But like any other technology, they can also be used for less ethical purposes. That’s why it’s good for everyone who surfs the internet to know how they work and how they can be used.
