A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer, tablet or mobile device (the “Device”) when you visit the website Calipso.ro.
It allows the website to memorize your actions and preferences for a certain period of time, so that you do not have to re-enter them each time you return to our website or navigate from one page to another, as well as to improve your experience on the website, to the extent that you agree. In this way, our website may recognize your device from those of other users of the website.
The other tracking technologies used by Calipso work similarly to cookies and place small data files on your Device or monitor your website activity to enable us to collect information on how you use our website. Next, where we refer to cookies, we refer to cookies and/or similar technologies.

Our processing of your cookies is carried out on a legal basis. According to the applicable legislation, we may process your cookies or
similar technologies on the basis of the following grounds: (i) on the basis of the applicable legal provisions, in the case of strictly necessary cookies and in the case of cookies that have as their sole purpose the transmission of a communication;
(ii) based on your consent, in the case of all other types of cookies.
The period of time for which a cookie remains on your Device may vary significantly and depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. See also Section 10 of this Policy on how to control cookies to obtain more information on their removal before they expire.
Cookies store information in small text files that allow the website to recognize the browser. The web server will recognize the browser until the cookie expires or deletes it.
Cookies store important information that improves the Internet browsing experience.
The website https://www.calipso.ro/ and https://www.calipso.ro/ use both its own and third-party cookies. These cookies are used for security purposes, to improve the use and functionality of our website, to authenticate users, to facilitate navigation, to display information more efficiently and to provide you with more prompt personalized information.
Essential or strictly necessary cookies are of major importance for the operation of our website. Without these cookies, certain parts of our website do not function properly.
These cookies do not track your internet browsing and do not retain preferences outside of your current visit and do not collect information about you that could be used for marketing purposes. They are usually session cookies that will expire the moment you close your browsing session. Therefore, it is not necessary to ask for your express consent to their use.
Functionality cookies,including geotargeting cookies, are used to increase the ease of use of our website by remembering your options (e.g. language, country, region, login, etc.). For example, we will recognize your username and remember how you have personalized the website (for example, the choice you have made regarding the language, the acceptance of cookies) and we will provide you with the same way of personalizing during future visits.
Performance cookies collect data on the performance of a website, such as the number of visitors, the time spent on the website and error messages. Web analytics services may be designed and operated by third parties.
The information provided by these cookies allows us to analyze patterns of user behavior and use this information to improve user experience or to identify those sections of the website that require maintenance. The information is anonymous (i.e. it cannot be used to identify you and does not contain personal information such as your name and e-mail address) and is used for statistical purposes.
Statistical cookies allow us to customize this website according to the requirements of visitors. We also count the number of visits, the number of pages visited, the actions of visitors to the site and how often they return.

Cookies are the focus of the effective operation of the Internet, helping to create a pleasant browsing experience, customized according to the preferences and interests of each user. Prohibiting or disabling cookies may lead to the impossibility of using certain sites.
Prohibiting or disabling cookies does not mean that you will not receive online advertising – but only that it will no longer be possible to track your preferences and interests resulting from your browsing behavior.
Examples of important uses of cookies (for which it is not
necessary to authenticate a user through an account): (i) personalized offers according to the interests of users – password retention, language preferences (for example, displaying search results in Romanian);
(ii) providing advertising that is more relevant to the user;
(iii) metering, optimization and analytical features – such as confirming a certain level of traffic on a website, what type of content is viewed and how a user reaches a website (examples – through search engines, directly from other websites, etc.)
Websites run these usage analytics to improve the sites for the benefit of users.
You can control and manage cookies in different ways. You can configure your browser to accept or reject all or certain cookies.
If you accept the use of all cookies, it allows you to use all functions of the website without restrictions, but please note that removing or blocking cookies may have a negative impact on your user experience and certain parts of our website may no longer be fully accessible. If you block the use of all cookies, first-party and third-party cookies will be disabled, but Calipso cannot delete third-party cookies. To delete third-party cookies, you can access your browser settings.
Even if users disable one or more analytical cookies, it is still possible to use information collected by these cookies before disabling them, but we will cease to use disabled cookies to continue to collect information.
The User has the possibility to set the device’s browser options so that these cookies are no longer accepted or the browser can be set to accept cookies from a particular site.
The settings that offer the possibility of disabling /deleting cookies are usually found in the “options” or in the “preferences” menu of the user device’s browser. Specifically, in order to modify the cookie options of the website, the user can access the “Options” or “Preferences” menu of the browser.
For details on the options available in your browser and how to configure the browser according to your options, please visit the “Help” menu and another dedicated section of your internet browser. For
example: (i) Mozilla Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/cookies-information-websites-store-on-your-computer

(iii) Google Chrome: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95647?hl=en

For security reasons, the data transferred between the web server and the browser is SSL encrypted and therefore Calipso has implemented specific measures to protect your personal data stored in cookies.
Cookies are installed through the request issued by a web server to a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Opera, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, etc.) and are completely passive – they do not include software, viruses, spyware and cannot access the information stored on the user’s hard drive. Cookies are not made up of code snippets, so they cannot be executed nor can they self-run.
However, cookies can be used for negative purposes. Since they store information about your preferences and users’ browsing history, both on a particular site and on several other sites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware.
Taking into account that through cookies information is constantly transmitted between the browser and the website, in both ways, if an unauthorized person intercepts the data flow, the information stored in the cookies can be intercepted. Although these are rare situations, this can happen in the event that the browser connects to the server through an unencrypted network (for example, an unsecured WiFi connection).
Other attacks in which cookies are used involve incorrect cookie settings on servers. If a website does not require that the browser use only encrypted channels, unauthorized persons may use this vulnerability to mislead the browser so as to send information through unsecured channels. This information is then used by unauthorized persons to access various websites.
It is important to be careful when choosing the best method of protecting your personal data.
In general, browsers have integrated privacy settings, which ensure different levels of cookie acceptance, validity and automatic deletion after a user visits a particular site.
We offer you some tips that can help you manage
cookies effortlessly: (i) Customize your browser’s cookie settings to reflect a comfortable level of cookie security;
(ii) If you share access to the computer with another person, you can consider setting the browser so that individual browsing data is deleted each time you close the browser. This is a way to access sites that place cookies and delete any information about visitors when you close your browsing session;
(iii) Constantly install and update your anti-spyware applications;
(iv) Many of the applications intended to identify and prevent spyware include identifying attacks on websites. This prevents the browser from accessing websites that could exploit browser vulnerabilities or download dangerous software;
(v) Make sure your browser is always up to date. Many of the attacks based on cookies are carried out by exploiting the weaknesses of older versions of browsers.
