What is a cookie?

Browser cookies:

Cookies are portions of information that a Web site places on your browsing device when you visit a page. They may involve the transmission of information between the Web site and your device, and between your device and other sites operating on our behalf or in private, in accordance with the respective Privacy Policy. We may use cookies to bring together the information we collect about you. You can opt to receive an alert every time a cookie is sent or to disable all cookies by changing your browser settings. By disabling cookies, however, some of our services may not work properly and you will not be able to access many features designed to optimize your site experience. For more information on managing or disabling browser cookies, see the last section of this Cookie Policy.

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

Cookie Flash:

Our promoters and external service providers may use local shared objects, called Flash cookies, to collect and store information. Flash cookies differ from browser cookies in terms of volume, type, and how the data is stored. The cookie management tools available in your browser are unable to remove Flash cookies. For more information on how to disable Flash cookies, see the last section of this document on how to use cookies.

By disabling Flash cookies, however, some of our services may not work properly and you will not be able to access many features designed to optimize your site experience.

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.

A link to our Cookie Policy is available at the bottom of each page of this Web site. By continuing to use this Web site and its features, you authorize us (and external advertisers on this Web site) to place performance cookies on your browsing device.

To delete or manage performance cookies, see the last section of this Cookie Policy.

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.

In some cases, we may authorize advertisers or third parties to provide you with content and other online experiences through this Web site. In this case, the third party in question may place its own functionality cookies on your device and use them, similar to us, in order to provide you with personalized features and optimize your user experience. By selecting custom options and settings or optimized features, you authorize our (and third parties’) use of cookies for functionality necessary to provide you with those experiences.

By deleting cookies by functionality, selected preferences or settings will not be stored for future visits.

4. Promotional or targeting cookies

Targeted advertising run by third parties

Third-party managed targeted advertising cookies may be stored on your device by third-party advertisers, ad networks, marketing data exchange and analytics services, and other service providers.

Third-party managed targeted advertising cookies collect information about your browsing on various websites and online services in order to display relevant advertisements on our and third-party websites and online services. Advertising networks may share this information with advertisers using their network. The information collected using these cookies for targeted advertising run by third parties does not personally identify you.

Our targeted promotion

Our targeted promotional cookies are placed on your browsing device by us (or by service providers acting on our behalf).

We may use these cookies on our Web sites and in connection with our content and advertisements displayed on third-party Web sites and online services in order to confirm your interaction with our content or promotions and to show you ads for products we think you might be interested in. Targeted promotional cookies collect anonymous information.

The organization handling the cookies (us or a third party) is required to request and obtain your consent. When you see this icon on our or third-party ads, you can click on the image and see more data about the targeted promotion, including information on how to manage control options through your browser settings.
