1 - What is a cookie?
A cookie is a text file that may be stored on a dedicated space on the hard disk of your device (e.g. PC, laptop or smartphone) when an online service is requested through your web browser. A cookie allows its owner to identify the terminal on which it is stored, throughout the period of validity or storage of such cookie.
2 – What are cookies used for?
Generally, five types of cookie are used on a retail website:
- Essential or "strictly necessary" cookies
- Functionality cookies
- Analytical and performance cookies
- Advertising cookies
- Sharing cookies (social links)
For your information, we are currently preparing an exhaustive inventory of the list of cookies from our dedicated external provider. Once the inventory is complete, we will update this Policy. In the meantime, the aforementioned five types of cookie are described below.
2.1 Essential or "strictly necessary" cookies
The use of essential cookies is not subject to your consent. The use of this type of cookie allows you to browse the site and to use its basic functions. In general, they are only installed in response to actions carried out by you by accessing services, such as the connection to a secure space on our site. They are only stored on your computer during your browsing of our site. These cookies are essential for the use of our site. In other words, without these cookies you will not be able to make normal use of the site, therefore we do not recommend that you delete them.
2.2 Functionality cookies
The use of this type of cookie allows us to recognise you when you return to our site and to offer you a better and more personalised functionality, such as a personalised welcome and saving your preferences (e.g. your choice of language or your location). These cookies collect anonymous information and cannot track your movements on other sites. In other words, these cookies are not essential for the browsing of our site, but they allow its functionality to be optimised and give you access to specific functions.
2.3 Analytical and performance cookies
The use of this type of cookie allows us to recognise and count the number of visitors on our site and collect information on the way in which our site is used (e.g. which pages are most viewed by visitors, if internet users are seeing error messages on some of our pages, etc.). In other words, these cookies allow us to improve the way our site works, for example, by making sure that users can easily find what they are looking for.
2.4 Advertising cookies
These cookies are used to show you adverts that suit your interests, on our site and also on others. They are particularly used to limit the number of times you see an advert and to measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign.
The relevance of the advertising content that appears on your device may also be managed by associating your device's information on the browsing of our site with the data that you have provided us.
The rejection of these advertising cookies has no impact on the use of our site. However, the act of rejecting them does not stop advertising on our site or on the internet, it only results in the display of adverts that do not take into account your interests or preferences.
These cookies are mainly third-party cookies and they depend largely on advertising companies.
2.5. Sharing cookies (social links)
Our site contains sharing links for Facebook, Twitter and other similar social networks, which allow you to share content from our site with other people. When you use these share buttons, a third-party cookie is installed. Share buttons allow you to link the content viewed to you user account when you are connected to the social network during your browsing of our site.
Please review these social networks' privacy protection policies in order to learn about the purposes for which information collected through these application buttons may be used, for advertising purposes in particular.
