This policy refers to cookies and webpages operated by Point Q – Amariei Dragos Ionut, headquartered in Viktoria Straße 7 – 49610 – Quakenbrück - Germany, ( named hereinafter RESORT AMENITIES ).

2. What are Cookies?
A Cookie is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, stored on the computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user on which Internet is accessed. A Cookie is installed by means of a request issued by a web-server of a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely “passive” (contains no software programs, viruses or spyware and cannot access information on user's hard drive).

3. What are Cookies used for?
Such files make possible the recognition of user's terminal and the presentation of the content in a relevant manner, adapted to user's preferences. Cookies ensure a pleasant navigation experience to users and support RESORT AMENITIES efforts to offer comfortable services to users: e.g. - preferences in online confidentiality area, shopping basket or relevant advertising. Moreover, they are used for preparing aggregated anonymous statistics helping us understanding how a user benefits from our web pages, allowing us to improve their structure and content, excluding the personal identification of the user.

4. Which Cookies do we use?
We use two types of cookies: per session and fixed. The latter are temporary files that remain in user's terminal until the end of the session or the end of the application (web browser). Fixed files remain on user's terminal for a term, within Cookie's parameters, or until they are manually deleted by the user.

5. How are Cookies used by this website?
A visit on this website can place cookies for:

·         Website performance cookies

·         Visitor analysis cookies

·         Geotargeting cookies

·         Registration cookies

·         Advertising cookies

·         Cookies of advertising providers

6. Do Cookies contain personal data?

Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify Internet users. Personal data collected by means of such Cookies can only be collected to ease certain functionalities for the user. Such data is encrypted in a manner that renders impossible the access of unauthorized persons thereto.

7. Deletion of Cookies

Generally, an application used to access webpages allows the implicit saving of Cookies on the terminal. Such settings can be changed so that the automatic administration of Cookies be blocked by the web browser or the user be informed each time Cookies are sent to his terminal. Detailed information about Cookies’ administration possibilities and methods can be found in the settings area of the application (web browser). The Cookie use limit may influence certain functionalities of the webpage.

8. Why are Cookies important for the Internet?

Cookies are the central point of an efficient operation of the Internet, helping to experience a friendly navigation and to adapting each user’s preferences and interests. Refusing or deactivating cookies may make certain websites impossible to use.
Refusing or deactivating cookies does not mean that you will not receive online advertising - but only that it will not consider your preferences and interests, pointed out through your navigation behavior.
Examples of important use of cookies (that do not require the authentication of a user by means of an account):

·         Content and services adapted to user’s preferences – categories of products and services.

·         Offers adapted to users’ interests – memorizing passwords.

·         Memorizing children protection filters as concerns the Internet content (family mode options, safe search functions).

·         Limiting the frequency of commercials – limiting the number of displays of a commercial for a certain user on a certain website.

·         Provision of relevant adds for the user.

·         Measurement, optimization and analytics features - such as the confirmation of a certain traffic level on a website, the type of content viewed and how an user reaches a website)e.g. through search engines, directly, from other websites etc.). Websites make such analysis of their use to improve websites to the benefit of users.

9. Security and confidentiality issues

Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text formats. They do not consist of pieces of codes; therefore, they are not executable and cannot be ran. Therefore, they cannot be duplicated or replicated on other networks to run or replicate again. Due to the fact they cannot fulfil such functions, they cannot be considered viruses.
Cookies can be used, however, for negative purposes. As they store information about user’s preferences and navigation history, both on a certain website and on several websites, cookies may be used as Spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this and constantly mark cookies to be deleted during the deletion/anti-virus/anti-spyware scanning procedures.

Generally, browsers have integrated confidentiality settings that provide different cookie acceptance levels, validity term and automatic deletion after the user visits a certain website.
Other cookie-related security aspects:
As the protection of identity is of great value and represents each Internet user’s right, 
there must be known what issues such cookies may create. Due to the fact that information is constantly sent both ways through them, between the browser and the website, if a hacker or unauthorized person interferes during the data transmission, the information contained by such cookies may be intercepted.

Even if very rarely, this can only happen if the browser connects to the server by using a non-encrypted network (e.g.: a non-secured WiFi network).

Other cookie-based attacks may involve wrong settings of cookies on servers. If a website does not request the browser to use only encrypted channels, hackers may use such vulnerability to trick browsers into sending information through unsecured channels. Hackers then use such information to access certain websites without authorization. It is very important that you pay attention when selecting the most appropriate security method for your personal information.

Tips for a safe and responsible, cookie-based navigation
Due to their flexibility and to the fact that most of the most visited websites and the greatest websites use cookies, they are almost unavoidable. The deactivation of cookies will not allow user’s access to most known and used websites such as Youtube, Gmail, Yahoo and others.
Here is some advice that ensures you that you may careless navigate by the help of cookies:

·         Customize your browser’s settings as concerns cookies, to reflect a comfortable security level when using cookies.

·         If cookies are of no trouble for you and you are the only person using the computer, you can set long expiry terms for the storage of navigation history and of personal access data.

·         If you share the computer, you may consider the setting of the browser to delete individual navigation data when closing the browser. This is an option to access websites that send cookies and to delete any visiting information when closing the navigation session.

·         Constantly install and update the antispyware applications.

Many of the spyware detection and prevention applications include detecting website attacks. Thus, they hinder the browser from accessing websites that might exploit the vulnerability of your browser or download a dangerous software.
Make sure that your browser is always updated.
Many of cookies-based attacks take place by exploiting the weaknesses of older versions of browsers.

Cookies are everywhere and cannot be avoided unless you wish to have access to the best and greatest Internet websites - at local or international level. By clearly understanding their operating manner and benefits they bring, you may take necessary security measures so that to be able to trustfully navigate the Internet.
The deactivation and refusal to receive cookies may render certain websites impracticable or difficult to be viewed and used. Moreover, the refusal to accept cookies does not mean that you will not receive/see online advertising.
The browser can be set so that such cookies no longer be accepted, or you can set the browser to accept cookies from a certain website. However, for example, if you are not registered as using cookies, you will not be able to make comments.

All modern browsers offer the possibility to change the settings of cookies. Such settings are usually found in “options” or in the “preferences” menu of your browser.
