Types of cookies
Cookies can be divided according to their origin, their function and their lifespan.
Own cookies are cookies that the owner of the visited website places.
Third party cookies are cookies placed by an organization other than the owner of the website you are visiting. This may include cookies that are created by a company specialized in the analysis of websites and that the owner of the website visits data about the visitor frequency on his site.
Functional cookies are cookies that ensure that the website functions properly (e.g. cookies for log-in or registration, language preferences). Functional cookies are logically your own cookies.
Non-functional cookies are cookies that can be placed for statistical, social, targeting and commercial purposes. They have nothing to do with the purely technical support of the website. Cookies with static purposes make it possible to check which pages of the website you visit, where your computer is located, etc. Cookies with social purposes enable the user to share the content of the visited website directly with others via social media. Cookies with targeting purposes allow a profile to be built up based on your surfing behavior so that the displayed advertisements are tailored to your interests. Cookies with commercial purposes keep track of how many and which advertisements have been shown to a user. Non-functional cookies can be your own cookies or cookies from third parties.
Permanent cookies remain on the user's device for the duration specified in the cookie and therefore even after you have closed your browser. They are activated each time the user visits the website that has placed this cookie (e.g. cookies placed by social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Google Analytics etc). Most non-functional cookies are permanent cookies.
Session cookies allow us to simplify the actions of a user and to link them together during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser screen and ends when they close the browser screen. Session cookies are placed temporarily. As soon as you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted. Most functional cookies are session cookies.
These are cookies that remember your country and language preference and your customer segment. It is also a cookie that remembers the position of your shopping cart during an order, as well as the cookie that keeps track of whether you have already been asked to participate in a survey so that we do not submit the same survey to you every time.

Cookies for social media
For our marketing campaigns on Facebook, we use the tool “Pixel”, which integrates a cookie created by Facebook into some of our web pages. With that piexel, Facebook can track the actions of its users from an advertisement on the social network to a web page on our website. Facebook will subsequently be able to recognize on its platform the user who has visited the web page in question, provide customized services and place more targeted advertisements. Incidentally, this data processing does not apply to those who are not on Facebook. Learn more about how Facebook collects, processes and uses data and possible settings to protect your privacy in the Facebook User Data Policy.
