COOKIES USAGE INFORMATION

Minin.it uses cookies and similar technologies to enhance the site’s usage experience. This document provides detailed information on the use of cookies and similar technologies, how they are used by minin.it and how to handle them.

DEFINITIONS

Depending on the characteristics and the use of cookies we can distinguish different categories:
Cookies strictly needed. These are indispensable cookies for the proper functioning of the minin.it site and are used to handle login and access to the site’s confidential functions. Their deactivation compromises the use of accessible login services. The minin.it public part remains normally usable.

Analysis and performance cookies. These cookies are used to collect and analyze traffic and site usage anonymously. These cookies, even without identifying the user, allow, for example, to detect whether the same user returns to connect at different times. They also allow you to monitor your system and improve its performance and usability. Disabling such cookies can be done without any loss of functionality.

COOKIES TYPES

COOKIE OF THIRD PARTIES
By visiting a website you may receive cookies from both the visited site (“owners”) or from websites managed by other organizations (“third parties”). A notable example is the presence of “social plugins” for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. These are parts of the visited page generated directly from these sites and integrated into the site’s host site. The most common use of social plugins is to share social networking content.
The presence of these plugins involves the transmission of cookies to and from all sites managed by third parties. The management of information collected by “third parties” is governed by the relevant information to which reference is made. For greater transparency and convenience, here are the web addresses of the various information and how to manage cookies.
Facebook Informative: https://www.facebook.com/help/cookies/
Facebook (configuration): Log in to your account. Privacy section.
Twitter Informative: https://support.twitter.com/articles/20170514

Linkedin information: https://www.linkedin.com/legal/cookie-policy
LinkedIn (configuration): https://www.linkedin.com/settings/
Google+ information: http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/technologies/cookies/
Google+ (configuration): http://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/technologies/managing/
GOOGLE ANALYTICS
The site also includes some components transmitted by Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Again, this is third-party cookies that are collected and managed anonymously to monitor and improve the performance of your site (performance cookie).
Google Analytics uses “cookies” to collect and analyze anonymously the information about the behavior of the Site (including the user’s IP address). This information is collected by Google Analytics, which processes them for the purpose of drafting reports about activities on the site itself. This site does not use (and does not allow third parties to use) the Google Analysis Tool to track or collect personal identification information. Google does not associate the IP address with any other data held by Google or attempts to link an IP address with a user’s identity. Google may also disclose this information to third parties where this is required by law or where such third parties point to such information on behalf of Google.
For more information, please refer to the following link: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/
The user can selectively disable Google Analytics by installing the opt-out component provided by Google on their browser. To disable Google Analytics action, please refer to the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
DURATION OF COOKIE
Some cookies (session cookies) remain active until the browser closes or the logout command is executed. Other cookies “survive” at the end of the browser and are also available on subsequent visits of the user.
These cookies are said to be persistent and their duration is fixed by the server at the time of their creation. In some cases a deadline is set, in other cases the duration is unlimited.
However, browsing the Site pages may interact with third-party managed sites that can create or modify permanent and profiling cookies.
COOKIE MANAGEMENT
The user can decide whether or not to accept cookies using their browser settings.
Warning: total or partial disabling of technical cookies may compromise the use of site features reserved for registered users. Conversely, the use of public content is also possible by completely disabling cookies.
Disabling third party cookies does not affect navigability in any way.
The setting can be defined specifically for different sites and web applications. In addition, the best browsers allow you to define different settings for “proprietary” and “third-party” cookies.
By way of example, in Firefox, through the Tools-> Options -> Privacy menu, you can access a control panel where you can decide whether to accept or not the different types of cookies and to remove them.
