Cookies are short fragments of text (letters and / or numbers) that are stored on the Web server to store information on the client (browser) to be used during the same visit to the site (session cookies) or later, even at a distance of days (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored, based on user preferences, by the single 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 for information on user behavior and use of the services.
Later in this document we will refer to cookies and all similar technologies by simply using the term “cookie”.
Types of cookies
- Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are essential for the proper functioning of the site. The duration of cookies is strictly limited to the work session (once the browser is closed they are deleted).
- Analysis and performance cookies. They are cookies used to collect and analyze the traffic and use of the site anonymously. These cookies, even without identifying the user, verified, for example, to detect if the same user returns to connect at different times. They also allow you to monitor the system and improve performance and usability. The deactivation of these cookies can be performed without any loss of functionality.
pedrettigraniti.it also includes certain components transmitted by Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Again, these are cookies for requests for parts 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 purchase of the pedrettigraniti.it website (including the user’s IP address). This information is collected by Google Analytics, which processes for the purpose of drawing up reports for Pedretti Graniti operators regarding the activities on the websites themselves. This site does not use Google’s analysis tool to monitor or acquire personal identification information. Google does not associate the IP address with any other data held by Google nor does it look for an IP address with the identity of a user. Google may also communicate this information to third parties where required by law or where such third parties process the aforementioned information on behalf of Google.

The user can selectively disable the action of Google Analytics by installing the component provided by Google on his browser. To disable the action of Google Analytics, please refer to the link below:
Duration of cookies
Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or the logout command is fully executed. Other cookies “survive” when the browser is closed and are also available on subsequent visits by the user.
These cookies are called persistent and their duration is set by the server when they are created. In some cases a deadline is set, in other cases the duration is unlimited.
pedrettigraniti.it, does not use persistent cookies.
However, by browsing the pages of the pedrettigraniti.it website, it is possible to interact with sites managed by subjects who can create or modify permanent and profiling cookies.
Management of cookies
The user can decide whether or not to accept cookies using the settings of his browser.
Warning: the total or partial disabling of technical cookies can compromise the use of the site features reserved for registered users. On the contrary, the usability of public content is also possible by completely disabling cookies.
Disabling “third party” cookies does not affect browsing in any way.
The setting can be defined specifically for the different websites and web applications. Furthermore, the best browsers allow you to define different settings for “proprietary” and “third party” cookies.
As an example, in Firefox, through the menu Tools-> Options -> Privacy, you can access a control panel where you can define whether or not to accept the different types of cookies and proceed with their removal.
