The cookies we use
The matter is regulated by the European Directive 2002/58 / EC – subsequently amended by Directive 2009/136 / EC and implemented by the national laws of the Member States of the European Union – which requires obtaining consent for cookies and similar technologies.
What is a cookie
A cookie is a small text file, typically letters and numbers, downloaded to a device when the user accesses the website. Cookies are then sent to the original site on each subsequent visit. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize a user’s device.
Different types of cookies
Session and persistent cookies
Cookies can expire at the end of a browser session (that is, from when a user opens the browser window until you exit the browser) or they can be kept longer.
Session cookies – allow websites to link a user’s actions during a browser session. They can be used for a variety of purposes, such as remembering what a user has placed in their shopping cart while browsing a site. They could also be used for security when a user accesses internet banking or to facilitate the use of web-mail. These session cookies expire after a browser session.
The use of so-called session cookies (which, in any case, are not stored permanently on the user’s computer and are automatically deleted as soon as the browser is closed) is strictly limited for the purposes of data transmission (consisting of numbers random generated by the server) that identify the specific session and are necessary to allow safe and efficient exploration. The so-called session cookies used on this site avoid the use of other IT techniques that are potentially detrimental to the confidentiality of users’ browsing on the net.
Persistent cookies – they are stored on users’ devices between distinct browser sessions and allow you to remember user actions on a site. Persistent cookies can be used for a variety of purposes, including remembering users’ preferences and choices when using a site (or in some cases through different websites).
“First” and “third party” cookies – The fact that a cookie is of the ‘first’ or ‘third party’ is strictly connected to the website or domain that uses that particular cookie. “First-party” cookies, in essence, are cookies set by the same website visited by the user – that is, the site displayed in the URL window: in our case, the cookies set by https://plumbermiddlesex-ma.com/ “Third party” cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that visited by the user: that is, cookies that are set by websites other than https://plumbermiddlesex-ma.com/ When you have visited https://plumbermiddlesex-ma.com/ Google Analytics has set the cookie called ‘_ga’ through the gstatic.com domain, this specific cookie is a “third party” cookie.
Ownership of the treatment
Consent for cookies
Some cookies are strictly necessary for the proper functioning of the Internet and do not require the user’s consent, such as those to ensure that the content of a page is loaded quickly and effectively, the distribution of the workload between different computers or those aimed at ensuring safety.
Other cookies are still reasonably necessary or important, but they are not strictly indispensable and, therefore, require the user’s consent.
The browser settings represent another means for the release of consent or, on the contrary, for the refusal of cookies; the user can set the browser to be notified of the presence of cookies, allowing him to decide whether to accept cookies or not. It is also possible to automatically refuse all cookies by activating the appropriate option in the browser.
Each browser highlights instructions for the purpose.
