This policy applies to cookies and the web pages operated by NICOLAESCU MIHAELA – INDIVIDUAL PSYCHOLOGY CABINET, headquartered at 11 Duzilor Street, Bucharest, Romania, referred to hereinafter as “NICOLAESCU MIHAELA,” “we,” “our.”

2. What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file, typically consisting of identifiers, website names, letters, and numbers, which the user, when browsing a web page through a web browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Chrome, etc.), can allow or disallow its installation by storing it on the computer, mobile terminal, or other devices used by the user. The cookie file is “passive” (it does not contain software programs, viruses, or spyware and cannot access information on the user’s hard disk).

3. What are cookies used for?
These files enable the recognition of the user’s terminal and the presentation of content tailored to their preferences. Cookies ensure a pleasant browsing experience for the user and support NICOLAESCU MIHAELA’s efforts to provide comfortable services to the user, such as online privacy preferences, shopping carts, or relevant advertising. Cookies are used in preparing anonymous aggregated statistics that help us understand how a user benefits from our web pages, allowing us to improve their structure and content.

4. What types of cookies do we use?
We use two types of cookies:

  • Session cookies – temporary files that remain on the user’s terminal until the browsing session is closed or the application (web browser) is closed
  • Persistent cookies – files that remain on the user’s terminal for a period defined by the parameters of that cookie or until manually deleted by the user.

5. How are cookies used by this site?
A visit to this site may place the following types of cookies:

  • Site performance cookies;
  • Visitor analysis cookies;
  • Registration cookies;
  • Advertising cookies;
  • Cookies from advertising providers.

Examples of cookie utility (which do not require user authentication through an account):

  • Content and services tailored to user preferences – product and service categories.
  • Offers tailored to user interests.
  • Retention of login details (username and password).
  • Retention of child protection filters regarding Internet content (family mode options, safe search functions).
  • Limiting the frequency of ad displays – limiting the number of times an ad is displayed to a particular user on a site.
  • Providing relevant advertising to the user.
  • 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 arrives at a website (e.g., through search engines, directly, from other websites, etc.). Websites conduct this analysis of their usage to improve their content for the benefit of the user.

Cookies which, from a technical perspective, are not mandatory to be stored on the user’s terminal, will only be used if the user gives their explicit and unequivocal consent to them by checking the presented categories.

6. What data do cookies contain?

In most cases, cookies do not directly identify Internet users but rather the terminal from which they accessed certain web pages. This data is encrypted in a way that does not allow unauthorized access by third parties.

7. Retention and deletion of cookies

Generally, an application used to access web pages allows cookies to be saved on the user’s terminal by default. These settings can be changed by the user so that automatic cookie management is blocked by the web browser or the user is informed every time cookies are sent to their terminal.

8. Cookie policy updates

NICOLAESCU MIHAELA may update this cookie policy to reflect changes in the various cookies used for operational, legal, or regulatory purposes. Please read the cookie policy regularly to ensure that you are properly informed about how we use cookies.
