What cookies are?
A cookie is a small piece of text sent to your browser by a website you visit. It helps the website to remember information about your visit, like for example your preferred language and other settings. That can make your next visit easier and the site more useful to you. Cookies play an important role. Without them, using the web would be a much more frustrating experience.
What are the different types of cookies?
A cookie can be classified by its lifespan and the domain to which it belongs.
- By lifespan, a cookie is either a:
- [ + ] session cookie which is erased when the user closes the browser or
- [ + ] persistent cookie which remains on the user's computer/device for a pre-defined period of time.
- As for the domain to which it belongs, there are either:
- [ + ] first-party cookies which are set by the web server of the visited page and share the same domain

Types of cookies used by base-conversion.ro
Some or all of the cookies identified below may be stored in your browser. You can view and manage cookies in your browser (though browsers for mobile devices may not offer this visibility).
|Category of use||Example|
(first-party, persistent cookies)
|This cookie allows our websites to remember your preferred language (English). Loss of the information stored in a preference cookie may make the website experience less functional but should not prevent it from working. |
base-conversion.ro uses persistent cookie: base-conversion[lang] - to automatically register your preferred language. Cookie lifespan: 360 days. Our site reputation can be checked online, by using any of the websites that do this kind of analysis.
|Google Adsense Advertising|
Unlike cookies that are set on Google's own domains, this cookie can't be read by Google when you're on other sites than base-conversion.ro. It serves purposes such as measuring interactions with the ads on our website and preventing the same ads from being shown to you too many times.
Google Adsense also uses conversion cookies whose main purpose is to help advertisers determine how many times people who click on their ads end up purchasing their products. These cookies allow Google and the advertiser to determine that you clicked the ad and later visited the advertiser site. Conversion cookies are not used by Google for interest-based ad targeting and persist for a limited time only. These cookies are generally set in the googleadservices.com or google.com/ads domain, and have names like ‘Conversion’ and ‘TAID’. Conversion cookie data may also be used in combination with your Google account to link conversion events across different devices you use. Only anonymous data gathered from these cookies is shared with advertisers.
Some of our other cookies may be used to measure conversion events as well. For example, DoubleClick and Google Analytics cookies may also be used for this purpose.
|Google Analytics |
|Google Analytics is Google’s analytics tool that helps website and app owners to understand how their visitors engage with their properties. It may use a set of cookies to collect information and report website usage statistics without personally identifying individual visitors to Google. The main cookie used by Google Analytics is the ‘__ga’ cookie.|
Google Analytics is not used (together with the advertising cookies described above) to help show more relevant ads on Google properties (like Google Search) or across the web.
Managing cookies in your browser
Some people prefer not to allow cookies, which is why most browsers give you the ability to manage cookies to suit you. In some browsers you can set up rules to manage cookies on a site-by-site basis, giving you more fine-grained control over your privacy. What this means is that you can disallow cookies from all sites except those that you trust.
In the Google Chrome browser, the most popular browser as of 2015, the Tools menu contains an option to Clear Browsing Data. You can use this option to delete cookies and other site and plug-in data, including data stored on your device by the Adobe Flash Player (commonly known as Flash cookies).
Another feature of Chrome is its incognito mode. You can browse in incognito mode when you don’t want your website visits or downloads to be recorded in your browsing and download histories. Any cookies created while in incognito mode are deleted after you close all incognito windows.
Blocking all cookies will have a negative impact upon the usability of the website. If you block cookies, you will not be able to use all the features on our website. Most browsers allow you to refuse to accept cookies; for example:
