We do not control the functioning of cookies from third-parties. The respective third parties are responsible for such cookies and for their own data processing.
Performance cookies collect information on how visitors use the website in anonymous and aggregated form. They are used to analyze and improve how the site works.
Functionality cookies allow the site to remember choices made by you (e.g. user name, language or the territorial region) and thus they provide more personal features. They can be used to provide services you have asked e.g. watching a video.
These, typically third party cookies, are used to deliver ads more relevant to you. They will also limit the number of times you see a particular ad as well as they measure the effectiveness of the ad campaigns. They remember your device’s visit on the site and help to understand shopping behaviors and thus to improve our site and provide ads and offers of interest. Further, they enable you to like or recommend us on social media (such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest) and help you to rate and review our products.
Third parties may share their advertising cookies with several sites and they may enable us and/or third parties to recognize those sites visited. Advertising cookies enable the provision of relevant ads in our and third party sites based on the data obtained from those third-party cookies. Third party advertising cookies and services, used by us, include for example Google Ads, Facebook, Bing Ads, Yahoo! Ads and Instagram Ads.
