What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are stored onto your terminal equipment (computer or mobile device) when you visit certain websites. We may use similar techniques, such as pixels, web beacons, device fingerprints, etc. For the sake of consistency, all these techniques combined will be hereafter referred to as “cookies”.
Why are cookies used?
Cookies may be used for many different purposes. In the first place, cookies can be required to make the website function properly. For example, without cookies it would be difficult to make a website remember that you have logged in, or which products you have put in your shopping cart. These are called required cookies.
Cookies can also be used to analyse how a website is used, to count the number of visitors, to learn how the website may be improved. We do not link the website usage statistics and other reports to individual people. These cookies are called analytics cookies.
Thirdly, social media cookies are used to enable integration of social media into the website, so that you can immediately like or share a page or product on your favourite social media service.
