Cookie Policy

The Cookie Policy is the document that describes how we process the personal data of users who visit our website. It is, therefore, an information provided also pursuant to art. 13 and 14 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 – General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) – for those who simply browse the site and for users who spontaneously send communications made public on the site.
We use cookies to personalize content and ads, to provide social media features and to analyze our traffic. We also share information about how you use our site with our web analytics, advertising and social media partners, who may combine it with other information you have provided to them or that they have collected from your use of their services. You must consent to our cookies in order to continue using our website.

WHAT ARE COOKIES

Cookies are small text files that can be used by websites to make the experience more efficient for the user.
Thanks to cookies, the site remembers the user’s actions and preferences so that they do not have to be indicated again when the user returns to that site or navigates from one page to another of it. Cookies, therefore, can be used to perform computer authentication, session monitoring and storage of information regarding the activities of users accessing a site. They may also contain a unique identification code to allow tracking of the activities carried out by the user within the site itself for statistical or advertising purposes.
The law states that cookies may be stored on the user’s device if they are strictly necessary for the operation of the site. All other types of cookies require the user’s consent.
When the installation of Cookies is done on the basis of consent, such consent can be freely revoked at any time by following the instructions contained in this document.

TYPES OF COOKIES

There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, and these can remain on the user’s device for different periods of time: so-called session cookies, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed; so-called persistent cookies, which remain on the user’s device until a preestablished expiry date.
According to the regulations in force in Italy, the use of cookies does not always require the express consent of the user. In particular, the so-called “technical” cookies do not require such consent, i.e. those used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user. These cookies are indispensable for the functioning of the site or necessary to carry out activities requested by the user.
Among the technical cookies, which do not require express consent for their use, the Italian Data Protection Authority (see Prov. Gen. ‘Identification of simplified procedures for information and acquisition of consent for the use of cookies – 8 May 2014’) also includes:

  • The analytics cookies, where used directly by the operator of the site to collect information, in aggregate form, on the number of users and how they visit the site.
  • Navigation or session cookies that ensure normal navigation and use of the website (allowing, for example, to make a purchase or authenticate to access restricted areas).
  • Functionality cookies, which allow the user to navigate according to a series of selected criteria (for example, language, products selected for purchase) in order to improve the service rendered to the same.

On the other hand, the so-called profiling cookies, i.e. those aimed at creating profiles on the user and used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user while surfing the web, require the user’s prior consent.
Epta also uses Google Analytics cookies in order to monitor and verify the use of the Website made by the user. Thanks to Google Analytics, the Owner is able to know the total number of times the user opens a multimedia content, both audio and video, the number of people who open it and who close it before it is finished.
