Cookie Policy

This website (www.fives.ro) uses cookies to improve the online navigation experience of its users and to provide better navigation and services adapted to the needs and interests of each user.

“Cookies” are intended to ease access to and delivery of services used by the Internet user, as well as to customize certain settings (e.g. language).
“Cookie” is a small virtual file, which is stored on any terminal with Internet access (computer, mobile phone, tablet, etc.) and is installed following the request issued by a webserver to the browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome) that the user is using.
“Cookies” do not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the user’s terminal (hard drive). Cookies do not require personal information and do not personally identify Internet users.

A cookie has a name and content, and its lifetime is limited; it may be accessed again by the webserver when a user returns on the website associated to that particular webserver.

A cookie contains information that connects the users and the website www.fives.ro. If a browser accesses that webserver again, it can read the information already stored there and can customize the navigation experience.

Based on the information they collect on users, “cookies” help us optimize our website so that navigation is more accessible.

    www.five’s.ro uses:

•    session cookies – they are stored temporarily in the browser history, until the user closes that website or closes the browser window.

•    persistent cookies – they are stored on computer hard drives or equipment, depending on their pre-established lifetime. Persistent cookies also include those placed by another website than the one visited by the user at that moment,

•    known as “third party cookies” – which may be used anonymously to store users’ interests to deliver relevant advertising for that user.

Permanent “cookies” are kept and reused every time the user returns on that website, but the user may delete them at any moment.

“Third party cookies”:

Certain content parts on certain websites may be placed on the www.fives.ro website by third parties through banners, boxes or links – and all such instruments may contain cookies. They are entitled “third party cookies” because they are not placed by the owner (holder) of that website; third parties shall comply with the laws in force and the confidentiality policies of the website holder.

Visits on the website can place cookies for:

Website performance cookies

Visitor analysis cookies

Registration cookies

Advertising cookies

Advertiser cookies

These cookies may originate from third parties

Performance Cookies

This type of cookies retains user preferences on this website and, as such, they no longer have to be set on each visit to the website. For example: volume settings for video player, video streaming speed with which the browser is compatible.

Visitor Analysis Cookies

Each time a user visits this website, the analytics software provided by a third party generates a user analysis cookie. This cookie tells us if you have visited this website before. The browser will tell us if you have this cookie, and if not, we will generate one. It allows the monitoring of unique users that visit us and how often they do so. As long as you are not registered on this website, this cookie cannot be used to identify individuals, it can only be used statistically. If you are registered, we can also know the details you have provided to us, such as your e-mail and username – subject to confidentiality and to the provisions of Terms and Conditions, Confidentiality Policy and the laws in force on personal data protection.

Advertising Cookies

These cookies allow us to find out whether you have viewed an online ad or not, what type of ad it was and how long it has been since you saw it. These cookies are used to target online advertising. We can also use third party cookies for better adaptation of the type of advertising information. These cookies are anonymous and they store information on viewed content, not on users. Also, we set anonymous cookies through other websites on which we advertise. Receiving them as such, we can use them to recognize you as visitor on that website, and if you continue to visit the website we can adapt the advertising material.

Advertiser Cookies

A large part of the advertising you find on this website belongs to third parties. Some of these parties use their own anonymous cookies to analyse how many people have been exposed to ads or to see how many people were exposed several times to the same ad. The companies generating such cookies have their own confidentiality policies, and this website has no access to reading or writing these cookies. Third party cookies can be used to display target advertising on other websites, based on your navigation on this website.

Other Third Party Cookies

On certain pages, third parties may set their own anonymous cookies in order to monitor the success of an application or to customize an application. Due to the mode of use, this website cannot access such cookies, just as third parties cannot access cookies owned by this website.

What type of information is stored and accessed through cookies?

Cookies keep information that allows a website to recognize a browser in a small text file. The webserver will continue to recognize the browser until the cookie expires or is deleted.

Information Security

In general, browsers have confidentiality settings integrated, which provide various levels of cookie acceptance, the validity period and automatic deletion after the user has visited a certain website.

Since identity protection is our obligation and a right of every Internet user, it is advisable that such users know what possible issues may arise from the use of cookies. Since through them information is constantly sent in both ways between browser and website, if a hacker or unauthorized person intervenes in the data transmission process, the information contained by cookies can be intercepted. Although very rarely, it may happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (e.g. no-password WiFi network). Other cookie hacking involves wrong cookie settings on servers. If a website does not require the browser to use only encrypted channels, hackers can use this vulnerability to trick browsers into sending information through unsecured channels. Hackers will then use this information in order to access certain websites without authorization. It is very important that you are careful in choosing the best way of protecting your personal information.

Advice for safer and more responsible navigation, based on cookies
Due to their flexibility and the fact that most of the websites with the most visitors use cookies, cookies are almost inevitable. Disabling cookies will not allow user access on the website.

Important to note:

Browser settings can be adjusted to correspond to user requirements for safer use of cookies.

To understand these settings, the following links may help. Otherwise, you can use the browser “help” option for more details.

Many of the spyware detection and prevention applications include detecting hacking on websites. Therefore, prevent your browser from accessing websites that could exploit browser vulnerability or download malicious software. Make sure that your browser is always up to date with the latest version.
