WHAT ARE COOKIES AND WHAT ARE THEY USED FOR

A cookie consists of small amount of data that, in the form of an anonymous unique code, is sent to the user's browser by a web server and then stored on the hard drive of the user's device (computer, smartphone and/or tablet). Cookies can be used either to enable the correct use of a website (so-called necessary cookies), or to verify the preferences expressed by the user when surfing the Internet in order to propose advertising messages in line with them (so-called profiling cookies).

Cookies can be stored on the device permanently and have a variable duration (so-called permanent cookies) or disappear when the browser is closed or have a limited duration (so-called session cookies). Cookies may be installed by the website you are visiting (so-called first-party cookies) or they may be installed by other websites (so-called third-party cookies).

TYPES OF COOKIES USED ON THIS SITE AND THEIR PURPOSES

The Site uses the following cookies:

Necessary cookies

These cookies enable the Site to function properly and allow content to be displayed in the language and for the market from the user's first access. They are able to recognise which country you are connecting from and act in such a way that, each time you visit the site, you are automatically directed to the version for your country. They also allow creating an account, logging in and managing orders. If a user has signed up, thanks to cookies, the Site will be able to recognise him/her when he/she accesses the services offered to registered users. These cookies will recognise if purchases are made on the Site via an affiliated or partner site, so that obligations towards partner sites can be fulfilled. These cookies are necessary for the operation of the Site.

Analytical Cookies

These cookies make it possible to carry out statistical analyses of how users navigate on the Site, in particular the tool used, the number of pages visited or the number of clicks made on a page while browsing. The results of these analyses are treated anonymously and exclusively for statistical purposes. Where cookies only allow tracking of anonymous IP addresses (with a share of the code not visible), they are assimilated to necessary cookies as they do not allow any identification.

Profiling cookies

The Site uses profiling cookies, by means of which it is possible to record the preferences noted during each visit and thus create profiles that allow messages to be sent that are more in line with the user's preferences and interests, for example by allowing the products that the user is looking for to be displayed more quickly or offering the user the most similar article.

Third-party cookies for marketing and retargeting

These cookies are used by trusted third-party companies to display advertising banners on other affiliate sites (retargeting), showing the last products that were viewed. While browsing the Site, these cookies are also used to show products that may be of interest or similar to those the user has previously looked at, based on their browsing history.

The characteristics of the cookies used on the site are shown in the table at this link.
