What are cookies
Cookies are short fragments of text (letters and/or numbers) that allow the web server to store on the client (the browser) information to be reused during the same visit to the site (session cookies) or later, even after days (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored, according to the user’s preferences, by the individual browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone).
Similar technologies, such as, for example, web beacons, transparent Gifs and all forms of local storage introduced with HTML5, can be used to collect information on user behavior and use of services.
Types of cookies
Cookies strictly necessary. These cookies are essential for the proper functioning of the sites and are used to manage the login and access to the confidential functions of the site. The duration of cookies is strictly limited to the working session (closed the browser are deleted). Their deactivation compromises the use of the services accessible by login. The public part of the site remains normally usable.
Analysis and performance cookies. These cookies are used to collect and analyze the traffic and use of the site anonymously. These cookies, without identifying the user, allow, for example, to detect if the same user returns to connect at different times. They also allow you to monitor the system and improve its performance and usability. The deactivation of these cookies can be carried out without any loss of functionality.
Third party cookies
By visiting a website you can receive cookies both from the site visited (“owners”) and from sites managed by other organizations (“third parties”). A practical example is the presence of “social plugins” for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Linkedin. These are parts of the page visited directly generated by these sites and integrated into the page of the host site. The most common use is aimed at sharing content on social networks.
The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties. The management of the information collected by “third parties” is governed by the relevant information to which please refer. To ensure greater transparency and convenience, below are the web addresses of the different information and methods for managing cookies.

The Cantina Colli Euganei websites also include certain components transmitted by Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Also in this case these are third-party cookies collected and managed anonymously to monitor and improve the performance of the host site (performance cookies).
Google Analytics uses “cookies” to collect and analyze anonymous information on the behavior of use of Unimarconi websites (including the IP address of the user). This information is collected by Google Analytics, which processes it for the purpose of drawing up reports on the activities on the websites themselves. This site does not use (and does not allow third parties to use) the Google analysis tool to monitor or collect personal identification information. Google does not associate the IP address with any other data held by Google nor does it attempt to link an IP address with the identity of a user. Google may also communicate this information to third parties where this is required by law or where such third parties process the aforementioned information on behalf of Google.
For further information, please refer to the following link: https://www.google.it/policies/privacy/partners/
The user can selectively disable the action of Google Analytics by installing on their browser the opt-out component provided by Google. To disable the action of Google Analytics, please refer to the link below: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
Duration of cookies
Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or the command to logout is executed. Other cookies “survive” when the browser is closed and are also available in subsequent visits by the user.
These cookies are called persistent and their duration is set by the server at the time of their creation. In some cases a deadline is set, in other cases the duration is unlimited.
The user can decide whether or not to accept cookies using the settings of their browser.
Warning: the total or partial disabling of technical cookies can compromise the use of the features of the site reserved for registered users. On the contrary, the usability of public content is also possible by completely disabling cookies.
The disabling of cookies “third parties” does not affect in any way the navigability.
The setting can be defined specifically for different websites and web applications. In addition, the best browsers allow you to define different settings for cookies “owners” and those of “third parties”.
A titolo di esempio, in Firefox, attraverso il menu Strumenti->Opzioni ->Privacy, è possibile accedere ad un pannello di controllo dove è possibile definire se accettare o meno i diversi tipi di cookie e procedere alla loro rimozione.
