Types of Cookies
Cookies can be divided into the following categories based on their characteristics and use:
Strictly necessary cookies. These cookies are essential for the website to operate. The duration of these cookies is limited to the session in progress (when the browser is closed they are erased).
Analytical and performance cookies. These cookies are used to anonymously collect and analyze site traffic and website use. Even without identifying the user, these cookies detect, for example, if the same user visits the website at different times. They also allow the system to be monitored and improve its performance and usability.
When visiting a website it is possible to receive cookies both from the website visited (“proprietary”), and Google+. These are web page elements generated directly by those entities and integrated into the pages of the host website. The most common use of social plugins aims at sharing content on social networks.
These plugins require cookies to be sent to and from all websites operated by third parties. The information collected by “third parties” shall be governed by the relevant privacy statement, to which you should refer if needed.
In order to guarantee increased transparency and greater convenience, the following list provides websites with information about cookie policies.
The website www.micpav.it may 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 that save and manage data anonymously to monitor and improve the performance of the hosting website (performance cookies).
Google Analytics uses “cookies” to collect and analyze anonymously information on the behavior of website users. This website does not use (and does not allow third parties to use) Google Analytics to monitor or collect personally identifiable information. Google does not associate the IP address with any other data held.
For example, under the Tools > Options > Privacy menu in Firefox you can access a control panel and specify whether or not you want to accept certain cookies or remove them.
The proprietor of www.micpav.it will keep this information up to date.
