Cookie Policy

This web site uses cookies. This policy explains what cookies and other tracking technologies Amplifon S.p.A. ("Amplifon", "we", "us", "our") uses on the EarPros.com website (the "website") and the reason for their use.

What cookies are

Cookies are small text files that we transfer to your device's hard disk (such as your computer or smartphone) for record-keeping purposes. They allow us to recognize your device and thereby can enhance your experience of our website by "remembering" you and your preferences.

Distinction between cookies

Cookies can be distinguished in the following categories according to the features taken into consideration: the managing entity, storage time and purpose of use.

Distinction by managing entity

  1. First-party cookies: these are sent to the user's computer terminal from a computer or domain managed by the website editor, which provides the service requested by the user.
  2. Third-party cookies: these are sent to the user's terminal from a machine or a domain that is not managed by the site editor, but by another entity who processes the data obtained by cookies.

This website installs first- and third-party cookies. In the latter case, advertisers and other parties may use their cookies to collect information about the user's activities on the website and/or the advertisements clicked by the user; we provide the link to the policies and consent forms of these third parties or of any intermediaries (if available) so that users are able to make their own informed choices.

The above parties may use this information to offer advertisements that may be more appealing to you, based on the content that you have viewed.

We do not control these cookies. See the information on third-party websites to disable these cookies.

Distinction by storage time

  • Session cookies: these are designed to collect and store data while the user accesses a web page. They are often used to store information only for the service requested by the user at any time and are automatically deleted at the end of the session (for example, a list of products purchased).
  • Persistent cookies: These cookies store collected data in the user's terminal and can be accessed and used for a period of time defined by EarPros.com, which can last from a few minutes to considerably longer periods (as specified in reference tables in this document).

Distinguished by purpose

  1. Essential cookies: allow you to browse the site and use all features. These cookies are required for the operation of our website.
  2. Functionality cookies: allow us to recognize you when you return to our website and remember your choices on the website and/or the services that the user expressly requires, in order to provide more advanced and personalized services, such as personalizing a certain page to reflect your previous actions on the website.
  3. Analysis Cookies: collect information on how the user uses the website (such as the most frequently visited pages, verification of the recurring patterns of website use, etc.) and make it possible to improve overall functionality to help us understand every difficulty encountered while using the website.
  4. Targeting and advertising cookies: are used to publish advertising that is considered of interest to the user, for example by limiting the number of times an ad is shown on the website (as the cookie remembers what the user saw on the website) and help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. This information can be shared with others, for example, advertisers. For more information about Targeting and Advertising cookies and how to disable them, aside from providing consent through the modules of this document, we recommend the following sites: Your Online Choices and All About Computer Cookies.
