What is a cookie?
We use various types of cookies with different functions. For more information about cookies and their general functions, visit an informative Web site such as allaboutcookies.org.

What types of cookies can be used?
The cookies that may be used on our Web site fall into the four categories outlined below. These descriptions can help you determine how you wish to interact with our Web sites and other online services.
1. Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are essential to be able to navigate the Web site and use certain features. Without the strictly necessary cookies, the online services you have requested, such as the virtual shopping cart or issuing an invoice upon validation of a purchase, cannot be provided.
You do not need to provide consent for cookies that are strictly necessary, as they are essential to ensure you receive the requested services.
2. Performance cookies
It is possible that performance cookies may be placed on your browsing device by us (or the service providers acting on our behalf). Information collected by performance cookies is used exclusively by us or in our interest.
Performance cookies collect anonymous information about how users use the Web site and its various features. For example, our performance cookies collect information about which pages of the site you visit most often and our advertisements that appear on other Web sites you interact with, as well as whether you open and read communications we send you and whether you receive error messages. The information collected may be used to personalize your online experience by showing specific content. Performance cookies are also used to limit the number of views of the same advertisement. Our performance cookies do not collect personally identifiable information.
3. Functionality cookies
It is possible that cookies may be placed by us (or the service providers acting on our behalf) for functionality on your browsing device. We do not share the information collected through feature cookies with our advertisers or third parties.
These cookies are used to store the choices you make (language preference, country, or other online settings) and to provide you with the personalized or optimized features you have selected. Functionality cookies can be used to offer you online services or to prevent you from being offered services that you have refused in the past.
By deleting cookies by functionality, selected preferences or settings will not be stored for future visits.
4. Promotional or targeting cookies

Advertising networks may share this information with advertisers using their network.
