- Policy for using cookies
This policy relates to the cookies and the website of Driver OOD, which has its registered office in the city. Sophia, str. William Glaston no60 (hereinafter called DREKKA).
- What are the cookies?
The cookie is a small-size file formed by letters and numbers that will be stored on your computer, your mobile device or other equipment of a user that are used to access the internet. The cookie is installed using the requirement sent by the server to a web page to the browser (for example: Internet Explorer, Chrome), and is completely "passive" (does not contain software programs, viruses or spyware, and does not have access to the information from the user's hardware).
- What are cookies used for?
These files make it possible to identify the device to the user and to present its content in the appropriate way adapted to the user's preferences. Cookies provide the user with a pleasant experience during internet navigation and help DREKKA to offer user-friendly services, such as online privacy preferences, shopping cart or advertising. It is also used in the preparation of anonymous statistics that help us understand how a consumer prefers to use our website, allowing us to improve the structure and content and, by excluding the identification of the user's personality.
- What kind of cookies are we using?
We use two types of cookies-per user session and fixed. The latter are temporary files that remain in the user's device until the end of its user session or until the application is closed (web browser). The fixed files remain on the user device for the period, parameterized by the cookies or until manually deleted by the user.

8. Why are cookies important for the Internet?
Cookies are a central point for the effective functioning of the Internet, helping to draw up a particular model of preferences and interests of each user. The failure or deactivation of the cookies may make some sites inexcusable for use.
Failure or deactivation of cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertisements, but that these will no longer appear in your account for favorites and interesting, collected through browsing behavior.
Examples of important cookies roles (which do not require account authentication):
- Content and services adapted to user preferences-product categories and services.
Offers adapted to user preferences-memorising passwords.
Storage of child protection filters for internet content (family mode option, safe search function).
Limiting the frequency of advertising-limiting the advertising of an advertisement for a particular user on the site.
Provision of advertising that would interest the user.
Measuring, optimizing and analytics characteristics-how to confirm a level of traffic on the website what type of content is displayed and how the user reaches a website (e.g.: search engines, direct, other websites, etc.). Websites develop these analyses and their use to improve the site for the benefit of consumers.
9. Security and confidentiality
Cookies are NOT viruses! They use the form of plain text. They are not made up of code parts, so they cannot be fulfilled and nor can they be carried out on their own. Therefore, they cannot be duplicated or copied to other networks to start or copy again. Since they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses.
Cookies may still be used for negative purposes. As they store information about preferences, also about the customer's browsing history, both on a particular site and on most other sites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware. Many anti-spy software are not aware of this fact and constantly mark the cookies to be removed during removal/scanning/anti-virus software.
Usually browsers have built-in privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, period of validity, and automatic deletion after the user has visited a site.
Other aspects of security related to cookies:
As the protection of personal data is extremely important and represents the right of every internet user, it is recommended to know the potential problems that cookies can create. They are sent continuously and bidirectional information between the browser and the website, and in case a hacker or other unauthorized person intervenes while sending the data, then the information containing cookies can be intercepted.
In rare cases, this can happen if the browser is connected to the server using an unencrypted network (e.g.: wireless insecure with a password network).
Another type of cookie-based attacks require the wrong cookie settings on the server. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, hackers can use this vulnerability to trick browsers when sending information through unprotected channels. Hackers use the information then to unauthorized access to certain websites. It is very important to be careful when choosing the most appropriate protection of personal data.
Tips for safe and responsible browsing based on cookies.
Here are some tips that can provide browsing without care, but with the help of cookies.
If you share access to your computer with someone, you can change browser settings to delete the personal browsing data whenever you close your browser. This is the option to access the sites that distribute cookies and delete any kind of information when you visit the closing of the browsing session.
Install and maintain permanently anti-spyware applications.
Many applications to detect and prevent spy software include the detection of attacks on sites. This prevents the browser from accessing the sites that could exploit the vulnerability of the browser or download malware.
Ensure that your browser has always been updated.
Many of the attacks, based on cookies, are realized in exploiting the weak points of old and unupdated versions of the browser.
Cookies are everywhere and cannot be avoided if you want to enjoy access to the best and largest websites-local and international. With a clear understanding of how they operate and the advantages they carry, you can take the necessary security measures so that you can browse with an assurance on the Internet.
