Cookie policy

1. Introduction

This Policy on cookies applies to all users of the website – the information presented below aims to inform users of this website about the placement, use and administration of cookies by PATJ CLUJ in the context of users browsing this Web page.

In essence, 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 only keeps it and sends it back if the sender requests it.

When you browse the Internet, the sender is the server that hosts a website, and the recipient is the Internet browser (browser) of the user who visits that site. Their purpose is to identify the user, to verify his past activity on that site and to provide specific content based on this data.

When a user visits a site for the first time, the server stores a certain cookie in its internet browser (browser). On all subsequent visits to this first visit, the server will ask for the cookie to read it and upload a specific configuration of the website that is most appropriate for that user. You can see cookies as a label that servers apply to each user, then read them to identify users.

This identification is extremely useful especially on websites where real-time user data is critical. For example, when you use an online store, you would not be able to buy anything without the help of cookies. Stores could not identify you and assign you a shopping cart without them because, each time you load a new page, the store would look at 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, providing dynamic and useful content for each user. In some cases, websites cannot function without the use of cookies. They also allow websites to gather data about their users and the pages they visit. Like any other technology, however, they can be used for less ethical purposes. That’s why it’s good for everyone who surfs the internet to know how it works and how it can be used.
