Cookies are stored, based on user preferences, by the individual browser on the specific device used (computer, tablet, smartphone).

Analysis and performance cookies. These cookies are used to collect and analyze the traffic and use of the site anonymously. These cookies, even without identifying the user, allow, for example, to detect if the same user returns to connect at different times.

Third Party Cookies
By visiting a website you may receive cookies both from the visited site (“owners”) and from websites managed by other organizations (“third parties”).
The www.oceansped.com site also includes certain components transmitted by Google Analytics, a web traffic analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Also in this case they are third-party cookies 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 about site usage behavior (the user’s IP address has been anonymized following the procedure provided by Google https://support.google. com / analytics / answer / 2763052? hl = en). This information is collected by Google Analytics, which processes it in order to prepare reports for The Docks 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 attempt to link 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 information on Google’s behalf.
