The security of your data is the most important thing for us, that’s why we take seriously any aspect in protecting your data.

As of May 25, 2018, the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 on the protection of individuals regarding the processing of personal data and the free movement of such data and repealing Directive 95/46/EC, known as GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation),has been implemented. This means that any Controller/entity that processes personal data must apply these new requirements and provide information in a transparent manner on how the data is processed.

Given the need to comply with the provisions of the GDPR, as well as the fact that we are dedicated to taking care of your personal data (which may include name, surname, e-mail address, etc., depending on the purpose of the processing) which are found in our database, we inform you that they are used only for the purpose of successful completion of the processes carried out in our relationship with you (we mention some processes without limitation to these: reservation/sale/order fulfillment, transport and deliveries, maintaining customer relations).
In order to improve your online browsing experience, we use cookies that facilitate the use of the www.smartwrap.ro website by visitors. The full list of third-party cookies can be found below.

1. WHAT IS A “COOKIE”?

An “Internet Cookie” (also known as a “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, that is stored on your computer, mobile terminal, or other equipment belSonging to a user from which the Internet is accessed. The cookie is installed through a request issued by a web server to a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox) and is completely “passive” (does not contain software programs, viruses or spyware and cannot access information on the hard drive of the user).

A cookie consists of two parts: the name and content or the value of the cookie. Moreover, the life of a cookie is determined; technically, only the server that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the site associated with the web server.
Cookies play an important role in facilitating access to and delivery of multiple services that the user enjoys on the Internet, such as:

• Customizing certain settings such as: the language in which a site is viewed, the currency in which certain prices or rates are expressed, keeping options for various products (quantity, other details, etc.)
• Cookies give site owners valuable feedback on how their sites are used by users so that they can make them more efficient and accessible to users.
• Allowing multimedia or other applications from other sites to be included in a particular site to create a more valuable, useful, and enjoyable browsing experience.

Cookies themselves do not require personal information in order to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify internet users.

There are two main categories of cookies:

•Session cookies – these are temporarily stored in the cookies folder of the web browser so that it can store them until the user leaves the respective website or closes the browser window (e.g. when logging in/logging out of a webmail account or social networks).

• Persistent cookies – these are stored on the hard drive of a computer or device (and generally depend on the default cookie life). Persistent cookies also include those placed by a website other than the one the user is currently visiting – known as “third party cookies” (cookies placed by third parties) – which can be used anonymously to memorize a user’s interests so that the most relevant advertising for the user is delivered.

2. WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF COOKIES?

Cookies are administered by web servers. The life of a cookie can vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed. Some cookies are used exclusively for a single session (session cookies) and are no longer retained once the user has left the website and some cookies are retained and reused each time the user returns to that website (“permanent cookies”). However, cookies can be deleted by a user at any time through the browser settings.

In general, the role of cookies is to ensure a quick and easy interaction between users and websites. Cookies are also used so that users can easily resume their activities the next time they visit a previously visited website. Basically, cookies tell the server which pages should be displayed to the user, without the user having to remember the pages they browsed or to browse the entire site from the beginning.

3. WHY DO WE USE COOKIES?

• To recognize new visitors to the www.smartwrap.ro website.
• To recognize past visitors.
• To better understand the interests of our customers and visitors of the www.smartwrap.ro website.

4. HOW COOKIES ARE USED ON THESE SITES?
Session cookie
Session cookies are stored on the user’s device during the browsing session. They store an anonymous session identifier, allowing the user to visit a website without having to enter identifying information (username, password, etc.) on each page.

Such cookies are often used in an online store. For example, when the user visits a certain page and selects certain products, the cookie retains the selected products and adds them to the shopping cart, which will contain all the selected products when the user wants to leave the page.

Session cookies are stored in the device memory only during an internet browsing session and are deleted when the browser is closed. They can also become inaccessible if the session has been inactive for a certain period of time.

5. WHAT KIND OF INFORMATION IS STORED AND ACCESSED THROUGH COOKIES?

Cookies store information in a small text file that allows a website to recognize a browser. The web server will recognize the browser until the cookie expires or is deleted. The cookie stores important information that improves the Internet browsing experience (for example: user session id, referral page, current time, etc.)

6. WHY ARE COOKIES IMPORTANT FOR THE INTERNET?

Cookies are the focal point for an efficient operation of the Internet, helping to generate a friendly browsing experience and adapted to the preferences and interests of each user. Declining or disabling cookies may make some sites impossible to use. Rejecting or disabling cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising – it is only that it will no longer be able to take into account your preferences and interests, evidenced by your browsing behavior.
Examples of important uses of cookies (which do not require a user to authenticate through an account):
• Content and services adapted to the user’s preferences.
• Offers tailored to users’ interests – language preferences (for example, displaying search results in Romanian).
• Providing more user-relevant advertising.
Measurement, optimization and analytics features – such as confirming a certain level of traffic on a website, what type of content is viewed and how a user gets to a website (for example: through search engines, directly from other websites, etc.) Websites carry out these analyzes of their use in order to improve the sites for the benefit of the users.

7. SECURITY AND CONFIDENTIALITY ISSUES?

Cookies are NOT viruses! They use “plain text” formats. They are not made up from pieces of code so they cannot be executed or run on their own. Consequently, they cannot duplicate or replicate on other networks in order to run or replicate again. Because they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses. However, cookies may be used for negative purposes. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this and constantly mark cookies to be deleted during anti-virus/anti-spyware removal/scanning procedures.
In general, browsers have integrated privacy settings that provide different levels of acceptance for cookies, validity period and automatic deletion after the user has visited a certain site.

See privacy policy.

Retention of personal data
The personal data stored will be used for the purpose of carrying out contracts and processing your requests. . Following the completion of the contract or of your request, the data are saved taking into account the retention periods according to the fiscal and commercial legislation and where applicable for a period necessary to protect the rights of the Controller.

Google Analytics

8. HOW CAN I STOP THE COOKIES?

Disabling and refusing to receive cookies may make certain sites impractical or difficult to visit and use. Also, refusing to accept cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive/view online advertising.

It is possible to set in the browser so that these cookies are no longer accepted or you can set the browser to accept cookies from a specific site.

Some browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature that allows users not to be tracked while browsing. Blocking cookies or using “Do Not Track” mode may block certain features on our sites.

All modern browsers offer the ability to change cookie settings. These settings are usually found in the “options” or in the “preferences” menu of the browser.

To understand these settings, the following links can be useful, otherwise you can use the browser’s “help” option for more details.

• Cookie settings Internet Explorer
• Cookie settings Mozilla Firefox
• Cookie settings Chrome
• Cookie settings Apple Safari
