7. Categories of Cookies and Similar Technologies That We Use
We have four categories of cookies or similar technologies that may be used on our Site. We categorize them as follows: Strictly Necessary cookies, Performance cookies, Functionality & Profile cookies and Advertising cookies.
Below, we explain each one of the categories to help you understand what they are.
STRICTLY NECESSARY COOKIES
These cookies are essential for basic functionalities of the Site and cannot be disabled by users. They enable you to move around our Site and use the features, particularly in connection with information searches and order placement. Without these cookies, services you have asked for cannot be provided. These cookies do not gather data about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you have been on the internet.
Some examples of strictly necessary cookies are:
- A shopping basket cookie, which is used to remember the products you wish to purchase when you add products to your shopping basket or proceed to checkout;
- A login cookie, which allows you to login and manage your login to the Site. This cookie helps to identify you after logging in and before you logout (single session);
- A session cookie, which is required to carry out the data transmission and provide the Site to you; and
- A security cookie that detects repeat failed login attempts or similar abuses of the Sites.
Strictly necessary cookies are generally stored only as long as required for their purpose.
These cookies are used to enhance the performance of a website but are not essential to its use. However, without these cookies, certain functions may become unavailable. These cookies collect data about how you use our Site such as the pages you go to most often and if you get any error messages from certain pages. These cookies collect data that are used for improving how the Site works. Without these cookies, we cannot learn how our Site is performing and make relevant improvements that could enrich your browsing experience.
An example of a performance cookie is Google Analytics:

For instance, they remember your user ID and elements of your user profile. They also ensure that your experience using the Site is relevant to you.
They may also be used to provide services you have requested such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. These cookies are not used to track your browsing activity on other websites
Without these cookies, our Site cannot remember your choices or personalize your browsing experience.
ADVERTISING COOKIES AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES
We may use these cookies or similar technologies to deliver advertisements that are more relevant to you. They may be used to limit the times you see an advertisement as well as to help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. These cookies may track your visits to other websites. Without these cookies or other technologies, online advertisements you encounter will be less relevant to you and your interests.

8. Other tracking technologies (e.g. web beacons)
Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track website visitors. We may also use other similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (also called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enables us to recognize when someone has visited our Sites or opened an email including them. This allows us, for instance, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within a website to another, to deliver cookies or communicate with them, to understand whether you have come to our Sites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve the website performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many cases, these technologies rely on cookies as far as functionality is concerned. Thus, declining cookies will also impair the functioning of web beacons.
