The importance of cookies for you
Accepting all cookies on our site significantly increases the quality of the content you see. Without these cookies, parts of our website will not be available.
Cookies allow us to remember your settings and preferences. This makes it easier for us to tailor the content available to you each time you return to the site. Accepting cookies contributes significantly to the ease with which you find the information you are looking for.
Cookies enable us to recognise and count visitors. In this way, we can generate statistical reports on how our website is used.

Cookies. What are they and what are they used for?
Cookies can identify the user’s terminal, the type of web-browser used, the relevant browser settings for cookies (such as Do Not Track) and other information such as IP address (if applicable), the area and country from which the content is accessed, the frequency of access and more.
In terms of necessity, cookies fall into two categories: essential and non-essential.
Essential cookies are cookies that ensure the proper functioning of the website and without which the website cannot function properly. These cookies must be accepted in order to navigate the adstream.com.ro website and all related pages and subdomains.
Non-essential cookies are cookies that greatly help the functioning and optimization of the site content by processing and adapting the information to the user. These cookies are not absolutely necessary for the functionality of the site.
There are several types of cookies, according to various classification criteria, respectively:
(a) according to storage duration: (i) session cookies (which expire immediately after closing the web page visited) or (ii) persistent cookies (which have a longer lifetime, they are retained and the information stored is reused each time the user returns to that website);
b) Depending on their role: (i) strictly necessary cookies, (ii) functional cookies, (iii) performance and analysis cookies and (iv) targeting and advertising cookies;
c) By their source: (i) first party cookies (placed by the Internet domain/website accessed by the user) and (ii) third party cookies (placed by an Internet domain/website other than the one accessed by the user – the website accessed also contains information from a third party website).
