Extended information on cookies


The domain hosts the site of OlioMerlino Srl Agricola. The site uses cookies to ensure the proper functioning of the procedures and improve the experience of using the services offered online. This document provides detailed information on the use of cookies, how they are used and how to manage them.


Cookies are small text files (letters and / or numbers) that websites, when visited, transmit to the user's computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.  Cookies are stored by the browser (Firefox, Internet Explorer, Chrome, Opera, etc ...) which information to reuse during the visit to the site (session cookies) or in subsequent sessions, even after some time (persistent cookies). Ultimately, cookies are stored, based on user 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 on the use of services. Later in this document we will refer to cookies and all similar technologies by simply using the term "cookie".

Types of cookies

Based on the characteristics and use of cookies we can distinguish different categories:

  • Technical Cookies. These are cookies that are essential for the proper functioning of the site. They are to guarantee and facilitate normal navigation and use of the site. Allowing for example to authenticate (login), to remember certain criteria, select them such as the language, to remember the discussions read in the forums, to collect some information in aggregate form about users. Technical cookies can be temporary (session duration) or persist over time, even for months (permanent). Their deactivation compromises the effective use of some services (pre-set login, read discussions, etc…). Among the technical cookies we also find analysis and performance cookies, which are used to collect and analyze the traffic and use of the site anonymously. These cookies do not identify the user and also allow to monitor the system and improve its performance and usability. The deactivation of these cookies can be performed without any loss of functionality.

  • The site uses technical cookies installed by our hosting and publishing service provider,

  • Profiling cookies. These are permanent cookies used to identify (anonymously or not) user preferences and improve their browsing experience. The site does not use profiling cookies on its own account.

  • Third Party Cookies. By visiting a website you may receive cookies from both the visited site ("owners") and from sites managed by other organizations ("third parties"). Examples are represented by the presence of "social plugins" for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. Other examples are: Google Analytics external statistics services; Google AdSense advertising banners; the Google Search bar; The translator of the Google Automatic Translations site, etc.  These are parts of the visited page generated directly by the aforementioned sites and integrated into the host site page. The most common use of social plugins is aimed at sharing content on social networks. The site provides for the possible use of third-party cookies, useful for managing relations with individual service providers of international social media systems.

More details on third-party cookies

The management of the information collected by "third parties" is governed by the relevant information to which reference should be made. Third parties can make use of profiling cookies. To ensure greater transparency and convenience, the web addresses of the various information and methods for managing cookies are reported below  .

For more information on profiling cookies relating to behavioral advertising, and their possible deactivation, please visit the page  (to start choose the language, for example Italy = Italian).

Duration of cookies

Some cookies (session cookies) remain active only until the browser is closed or the logout command is 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 at the time of their creation. In some cases a deadline is set, in other cases the duration is unlimited. By browsing the pages of the site, you can interact with sites managed by third parties that can create or modify persistent and profiling cookies.


Cookie management (enabling and disabling)

The user can decide whether or not to accept cookies using the settings on his browser.

Attention: 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.
