This section of the store was created with the aim of providing information about the cookie files used by the online store Bocane.ro. The site uses cookie files to offer you a personalized and pleasant experience.

What are cookie files and how long are they kept?

Cookie files (known as "browser cookie" or "HTTP cookie") are small text files. These files, consisting entirely of letters and numbers, are stored in the user's computer / tablet / phone, and are installed through the browser used. The most commonly used browsers are Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Chrome, etc. These files are not executable and cannot contain viruses, spyware or other types of software. They do not transmit personal information about the user and cannot access other information contained in the hard drive on which they are stored.

These files are mostly used to keep information that makes browsing on Bocane easier and more pleasant: the user's preferred currency and language, user recognition when returning to Bocane, keeping the contents of the shopping cart, etc. However, the retention period of such a file is determined, being different for each file, depending on its usefulness.

E.g, session cookies are kept during a single visit, and are deleted when the user exits the Bocane store. Persistent cookie files are kept for a longer period of time, depending on their usefulness. "Third party" cookie files , which belong to other sites, are for example the files used to track the activity of users who use applications of other sites installed on Bocane.ro (for example, the Like button is tracked by Facebook through cookie files that cannot be accessed by Bocane.ro and which in turn cannot access cookies installed by Bocane.ro).

What advantages do I have if I accept cookies?

Cookie files ensure a more pleasant, personalized visit to Bocane. Without them, we would have to re-authenticate each time we visit the store, we would lose the contents of the shopping cart from one visit to another and we would have to express our preferences related to various options at each visit.

How does Bocane.ro use cookies?

Registration cookie files - when you register at Bocane, a cookie file is automatically generated that informs the server that you are a registered user. The server personalizes the next visit in the sense that it displays the message "Hi", followed by your username, displays your account details on request, and allows us to avoid asking for contact details again if you want to comment on the blog, for example, or sign up for a back-in-stock notification an accessory that you like, but is missing at the moment.

"Third party" cookie files are files used by the applications of other sites, installed on Bocane.ro, when you use them. These are applications such as the Like, Tweet or PinIt buttons on the product page or in the Blog. This category also includes the cookie files generated by the software for analyzing visitors/visits to Bocane, which allow quantitative traffic monitoring (number of visits and unique users) and qualitative (if the user is in the Bocane store for the first time or has returned, how much time he spends in the store and which pages he visits). This information is not personal, but general and is used strictly for the purpose of improving the quality of the services offered by Bocane.ro.

Among the types of cookie files used may be third-party cookie files (including Google and Facebook). These are used to display advertisements to clients and potential clients of SC Bocane Accesories SRL These files can record information such as: traffic source (the website or email that recommended our store and helped the client reach the store ), the time spent by the customer on the website and the pages visited, the device used to visit the online store - desktop, laptop, tablet, mobile phone, etc.. This information does not contain personal data and is then used strictly for the purpose of presenting advertisements to each customer personalized advertisements according to the preferences and history of using the Company's online store. More information about disabling the cookies used by Google to display ads is available in the Google Ads Settings . To disable cookies related to the display of remarketing ads (displayed to customers who have visited the store before), access the Double Click Deactivation Page . For information about disabling all third-party cookie files, visit the Network Advertising Initiative deactivation page (currently available in English).

Other cookie files are the files used for the purpose of keeping information related to the options of users returning to Bocane: the chosen currency, the content of the shopping cart and the list of favorites, etc.

Why are cookies necessary?

Cookie files can be considered, without exaggeration, the central point of the efficient functioning of the Internet, ensuring a friendly and personalized browsing experience according to the preferences and interests of each user. Bocane cannot be used in the absence of cookies.

Security and confidentiality

Cookie files are text files, they cannot be executed, run and cannot self-replicate, so they cannot be used as viruses. However, they can be used to intercept certain information related to the user during the communication between Bocane and the server, however such attacks are rare. Cookies are used by an overwhelming majority of websites, and websites such as Google, Yahoo or YouTube cannot be accessed if the use of cookies is disabled.

Each browser offers the possibility to customize the settings related to cookies, to reflect a comfortable level of security for each user. For a computer shared with other people (such as a work computer, for example), it is possible to set the deletion of cookie files after each use, i.e. after closing the browsing session. Many of the spyware detection and prevention applications include detection of attacks on websites. Thus, it prevents the browser from accessing sites that could download dangerous software. Make sure that the browser is always up to date, because many attacks that use cookies use old versions of browsers.

Cookie files are ubiquitous and almost impossible to avoid for users who want to access the biggest and most important sites on the Internet, but understanding how they work and the utility/benefits they offer can ensure a pleasant and safe browsing on the Internet.

These settings are usually available in the section Options or Preferences of your browser. Here are some links that may prove useful if you want to customize the cookie settings for your browser:
