What are cookies?

A cookie is a set of information that a website you visit stores on your computer in the form of a file. They are used for the website to gather information about some of your settings and your online behavior (such as email address, browser settings, and the like).

When you revisit the same page, your web browser sends back the cookies that belong to it. This allows the page to be displayed, and the browsing experience to be tailored to your needs and preferences.

It’s important to emphasize that a website cannot access other files on the user’s computer or gain access to information that the user hasn’t provided previously. This is a common practice used on over 90% of websites. According to the European Union directive, we are obliged to request your consent before storing ‘cookies’.

What types of cookies do we use?

Session cookies – They are stored on your computer and are automatically deleted after closing the web browser. They allow the website to obtain temporary data, such as comments or the state of a shopping cart.

Persistent cookies – They remain in your web browser even after closing it and usually have an expiration date. Our website uses persistent cookies to facilitate access for registered users. They store data such as the username and password, allowing you to use the ‘remember me’ functionality when logging in, so you don’t have to enter your username and password every time you visit our site.

What are first-party cookies?

They come from the website you’ve visited and can be either temporary or permanent. They enable websites to store data that is used when the user revisits the website.

What are third-party cookies?

There are several third-party services that store limited cookies for the user (Facebook, Google Analytics, and AdWords). These cookies are not set by our web store and are often used to assist in understanding user behavior and for marketing purposes.

How to disable cookies?

Each user can decide whether they want to allow the storage of cookies on their computer. Storage settings can be configured within the web browser settings.

Please be aware that if you disable cookies, you may not be able to use some of the features on our website.
