Cookies Policy

The website may also use “cookies” in certain areas to collect information. A “cookie” is a very small piece of information that tells our site that you have visited previously. The website will send the “cookie” file to your browser. If your browser is set to accept cookies, the “cookie” will be stored as a file on your computer’s hard drive, taking up less than 200 bytes of disk space. The “cookie” acts like an identity card each time you visit our site. Only the website can read the “cookie”; we cannot read “cookies” sent by other websites.

The cookies we use fall into two categories.

Necessary Cookies: Necessary cookies are required to enable technical site functionality and to provide the services explicitly requested by you. This includes as an example service such as your selected country and language, keeping you logged in, providing security and fraud prevention, having your digital shopping bag and wish list items stored while you browse, remembering volume settings, and you getting access to secure areas of the website.  This category of cookies cannot be disabled and does not require a consent.

Analytic and Marketing Cookies: These cookies are optional and collect information about how visitors use and experience our website in order to optimize design, operations, efficiency and to improve your user experience. These cookies also learn more about your interest, including which sites and ads you click on, which products and services you are interested in, or purchase, on this and other of our websites or apps. We may use this data to personalize marketing to make the content of any marketing messages we send the user more relevant based on your interest and site behavior.

Some of the cookies will result in processing of your personal information.

In regard to “strictly necessary” cookies processing personal information, we base this processing on either:

  • Our legitimate interest in preventing fraudulent behavior when using our website and its services;
  • Our obligation to secure a safe use and operation of the website and the services offered on the website (including measures to secure compliance with our legal obligations towards children);
  • Our contractual obligation to deliver specific services or functionalities specifically requested by the website user.

In regard to “analytical” and/ or “marketing” cookies processing personal information, we base processing on consent, unless otherwise specifically addressed in our privacy policy.

You have the right to opt-out of certain cookies. Necessary cookies are essential for the website, and you cannot opt out of them, but you can delete necessary cookies after use – see how below.

For all other cookies, you can opt out of the cookies when you enter the website, or you can always adjust your settings and revoke your consent. You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when a cookie is being sent by us. However, it's important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled. For example, we may not remember your language preferences.

You may manage how your browser handles cookies by adjusting its privacy and security settings. Browsers are different, so refer to instructions related to your browser to learn about cookie-related and other privacy and security settings that may be available. You can opt-out of being targeted by certain Third-Party Ad-Servers, such as Google and other third parties that provide the technology to place ads on websites and track ad performance, online using the National Advertising Initiative’s Opt-Out Tool.
