By means of cookies, information about your preferences and other technical data can be recorded in a semi-permanent way to allow quicker navigation and greater ease of use and effectiveness of the site. For example, cookies may be used to determine whether your computer has already connected to our website, in order to highlight news or maintain the login information. For your protection, only the cookie stored on your computer is identified.
Types of Cookies
This site makes use of four different types of cookies:
1. Essential technical cookies
These cookies are necessary for the site to work properly. They make possible the navigation of the various pages, the sharing our content and the storage of your credentials in order to speed up entry to the site and to maintain your preferences and credentials active while browsing. Without these cookies we cannot provide the services for which users access the site.
2. Statistical and performance cookies
These cookies let us know how visitors use the site, so we can then evaluate and improve its performance and focus on providing content that best meets the information needs of our users. For example, they let us know what pages are most and least popular. They take into account, among other things, the number of visitors, the average time users spend on the site and how they arrived at the site. In this way, we can discover what works well and what improvements are necessary, as well as ensure that the pages load quickly and are displayed correctly. All the information gathered by these cookies is anonymous and is not linked to any personal information. To perform these functions, our sites use third-party services that anonymize data, thereby making it impossible to trace them to individuals (so-called "single-in"). The services that are not completely anonymized are listed among the third-party cookies, which you can deny your consent to use in order to better guarantee your privacy.
3. User profiling and targeted advertising cookies
These cookies allow ads to be shown to the user on the basis of his/her interests. They are also used to limit the number of views of the same ad and for evaluating the effectiveness of advertising campaigns.
They are inserted by EPI srl through the technical platforms of our advertising partners and are part of our investment in the websites, which allow us to adequately fund the maintenance of our services and their technological evolution. They can also be used to show you relevant ads on other websites you visit.
The cookies that are active in any given moment can change in function of the technical strategies of advertisers and their technical representatives, so rather than list them, we make known the companies that are authorized to provide advertising on our sites.
4. Operational and third party profiling cookies
This category includes both cookies provided by known partners of EPI srl and cookies provided by third parties that are not directly controlled or controllable by EPI srl.
Cookies from our partners allow us to offer advanced features, as well as a greater quantity of information and personal functions. These include the ability to share content through social networks, obtain access to services of video streaming and to the CDN networks on which we host our content. These services are mainly provided by third party companies hired by or working in aware partnerships with EPI srl . If you have an account with or if you use the services of such companies on other sites, these companies may be able to know that you have visited our website. The use of data collected from these external companies through cookies is subject to their privacy policies, and so these cookies are identified with the names of the respective companies and listed in the cookie management tools available in the appropriate section of this Policy Statement. These include registered cookies of the major social networks, which allow you to share the articles of our sites and publicly express your appreciation of our work.
Cookies that do not originate from partners of EPI srl are cookies sent by third parties without the control of EPI srl , and these parties thus have the opportunity to intercept the user even during navigation outside of EPI srl sites. These cookies, typically profiling cookies, are not directly controlled by EPI srl, which therefore cannot be certain of the use that these third parties make of the information collected.
Since every browser – and even different versions of the same browser – is unique, the choice to manage cookies through your browser preferences may require detailed information about the steps required, which can be found in the guide for your browser. For an overview of the steps to take for the most common browsers, you can visit: http://www.cookiepedia.co.uk/index.php?title=How_to_Manage_Cookies
Advertising companies also allow you to opt out of receiving targeted ads, if so desired. This does not prevent the setting of cookies, but blocks these companies from using and collecting some data.

Your data is also collected and stored through third party services:
Ve Interactive is a service that allows you to advertise your products online in a personalized way. To do so, the Ve platform collects data, including email addresses and anonymous information about consumers and their online activities and interests based on the rights of this website.

Criteo is an advertising service provided by Criteo SA. It provides advertisements through display products and/or targeted banners that may be of interest to users based on their more recent behaviours during online browsing. For further information, see the website www.criteo.com
With respect to third-party cookies, their purpose, the logics underpinning their processing, as well as the management of users' preferences in regard to them are not set and/or verified by EPI Srl, but rather by the entity that provides them as supplier and Data Controller.
