About cookies

Cookies are small text files, containing letters and numbers, that are installed on your device when accessing our website trackgps.ro/. They have a name and a content and can be read further by the application that installed them, for certain purposes.

The concerns around cookies are more from the privacy perspective, than information security, as they cannot be used to infect with viruses or other malicious code your device. They can refer to data that can be categorized as personal data, even if they are not leading directly to an individual direct identification.
