Cookies are short fragments of text (letters and/or numbers) that allow the web server to store information on the client (the browser), to be reused during the same visit to the site (session cookies) or later, even after several days (persistent cookies). Cookies are stored, according to 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 to collect information on user behaviour and the use of services.
In this document we will refer to cookies and all similar technologies by simply using the term “cookie”.
Strictly necessary cookies.
These cookies are essential for the proper functioning of the site www.vinemasterpruners.com and are used to manage the login and access to the reserved functions of the sites. The duration of cookies is strictly limited to the work session (when the browser is closed they are deleted). Their deactivation compromises the use of the services accessible through the login. The public part of the site www.vinemasterpruners.com remains normally usable.
Analysis and performance cookies.
These cookies are used to collect and analyse the traffic and use of the site anonymously. These cookies, even without identifying the user, make it possible, for example, to detect if the same user connects again at different times. They also make it possible to monitor the system and improve its performance and usability. The deactivation of these cookies can be performed without any loss of functionality.
By visiting a website you may receive cookies from both the visited site (“proprietary”) and from sites managed by other organisations (“third parties”). An example is the presence of “social plug-ins” for Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn, Instagram, Youtube. These are parts of the visited page generated directly by the aforementioned sites and integrated into the page of the hosting site. The most common use of social plug-ins is sharing content on social networks.
The presence of these plug-ins 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 can be made. To ensure greater transparency and convenience, the web addresses of the various information and methods for managing cookies are shown below.

The site www.vinemasterpruners.com also includes 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 hosting site (performance cookies).
Google Analytics uses “cookies” to collect and analyse anonymous information on the usage behaviour of the site www.vinemasterpruners.com (including the user’s IP address). This information is collected by Google Analytics, which processes it in order to prepare reports for www.vinemasterpruners.com operators regarding 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 try 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.

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.
The site vinemasterspruners.com does not use persistent cookies.
However, by browsing the pages of the site www.vinemasterpruners.com, you can interact with sites managed by third parties that can create or modify persistent and profiling cookies.
The user can decide whether or not to accept cookies using the settings of the browser.
Caution: 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 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 Tools -> Options -> Privacy menu, 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.
