cookies policy

We want to offer you the most interactive online experience possible. For this purpose, we use cookies or similar techniques. It is important to know which cookies our website uses and for what purpose. This will help protect privacy while ensuring the ease of use of our website. The following information is intended to provide the user with more details about the placement, use and management of cookies used by our site.

Please read the following information carefully

This website uses its own and third-party cookies to provide visitors with a much better browsing experience and services tailored to each individual’s needs and interests. In what we call “Web 2.0”, “cookies” play an important role in facilitating the access and delivery of the multiple services that the user enjoys on the Internet, such as: customizing certain settings, such as: the language in which a site is viewed , the currency in which certain prices or tariffs are expressed, keeping the options for various products (measurements, other details, etc.) in the shopping cart (and memorizing these options) – thus generating the flexibility of the “shopping cart”. Cookies provide site owners with valuable feedback on how their sites are used by users, so that they can make them even more efficient and accessible to users. Allow multimedia or other applications from other sites to be included in a particular site to create a more valuable, useful and enjoyable browsing experience. 

What is a “cookie”?

An “Internet Cookie” (term also known as “browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie” or simply “cookie”) is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, which will be stored on the computer, mobile terminal or other equipment of a user from which the Internet is accessed. The cookie is installed through the request issued by a web server to a browser (eg: Internet Explorer, Chrome) and is completely “passive” (it does not contain software programs, viruses or spyware and cannot access the information on the hard drive the user).

A cookie consists of 2 parts: the name and the content or value of the cookie. Furthermore, the lifetime of a cookie is determined; technically, only the webserver that sent the cookie can access it again when a user returns to the website associated with that webserver. Cookies themselves do not require personal information to be used and, in most cases, do not personally identify Internet users.

There are 2 large categories of cookies:
  1. Session cookies – these are temporarily stored in the cookie folder of the web browser, so that it remembers them until the user leaves the respective website or closes the browser window (eg: when logging in/out on a webmail account or on social networks).
  2. Persistent cookies – These are stored on the hard drive of a computer or device (and generally depend on the lifetime of the cookie). Persistent cookies also include those placed by a website other than the one the user is visiting at the time – known as ‘third party cookies’ – which can be used anonymously, for to remember a user’s interests, so that advertising is delivered as relevant as possible to users.
What are the advantages of cookies?

A cookie contains information that connects a web browser (the user) and a specific web server (the website). If a browser accesses that web server again, it can read the information already stored and react accordingly. Cookies provide users with a pleasant browsing experience and support the efforts of many websites to provide comfortable services to users: eg – online privacy preferences, site language options, shopping baskets or relevant advertising.

Why are cookies used?

Cookies can be used for different purposes. First of all, cookies may be necessary to ensure the correct functioning of the website. For example, without cookies, it may be difficult for the website to remember that you are logged in or which products you have added to your shopping cart. These are called mandatory cookies.

Cookies can be used to analyze how a website is used, to count the number of visitors and to find out how the website can be improved. We do not associate website usage statistics and other reports with individuals. These cookies are called analytical cookies.

Third, we use social media cookies to enable social media integration on the website and enable you to immediately like or share a page or product on your favorite social media service.

A fourth important reason we use cookies is to enable online advertising, which can be customized to display more relevant and interesting advertisements to you, both on and off our site. We do this through (targeted) advertising cookies such as Google Remarketing and Facebook Retargeting.

For example, our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”) which contributes to the analysis of the use of the website. For this purpose, Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer.

The information generated by the cookie about how the website is used – standard internet usage log information (including your IP address) and information on visitor behavior in an anonymous form – is transmitted to Google and stored by this, including on servers in the United States. Before it is transmitted to Google, your IP address is anonymized.

In accordance with its Privacy Shield certification, Google declares that it complies with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework. Google may transfer the information collected by Google Analytics to a third party when required by law or when that third party processes the information on Google’s behalf.

In accordance with the terms of use of Google Analytics, Google will not associate the users’ IP address with any other data held by Google.

What is the lifetime of a cookie?

Cookies are managed by web servers. The lifetime of a cookie can vary significantly, depending on the purpose for which it is placed. Some cookies are used exclusively for a single session (session cookies) and are no longer retained once the user has left the website and some cookies are retained and reused every time the user returns to that website (‘cookie permanents’). However, cookies can be deleted by the user at any time through the browser settings.

What are cookies placed by third parties?

Certain sections of content on some sites may be provided through third parties/providers (eg: news box, a video or an advertisement). These third parties can also place cookies through the website and they are called “third party cookies” because they are not placed by the owner of the respective website. Third party providers must also comply with applicable law and the privacy policies of the site owner.

What type of information is stored and accessed through cookies?

Cookies store information in a small text file that allows a website to recognize a browser. The webserver will recognize the browser until the cookie expires or is deleted.
The cookie stores important information that improves the Internet browsing experience (eg: language settings in which a website is accessed; keeping a user logged in to the webmail account; online banking security; keeping products in the shopping cart).

Why are cookies important for the Internet?

Cookies are central to the efficient functioning of the Internet, helping to generate a user-friendly browsing experience tailored to each user’s preferences and interests. Refusing or disabling cookies may make some sites unusable. Rejecting or deactivating cookies does not mean that you will no longer receive online advertising – but only that it will no longer be able to take into account your preferences and interests, highlighted by your browsing behavior.

Security and Privacy Issues

Cookies are NOT viruses! They use plain text formats. They are not made up of pieces of code, so they cannot be executed or auto-run. Consequently, they cannot be duplicated or replicated to other networks to run or replicate again. Since they cannot perform these functions, they cannot be considered viruses. Cookies can, however, be used for negative purposes. Because they store information about users’ preferences and browsing history, both on a particular site and across multiple sites, cookies can be used as a form of Spyware. Many anti-spyware products are aware of this fact and consistently mark cookies to be deleted during anti-virus/anti-spyware deletion/scanning procedures. In general, browsers have integrated privacy settings that provide different levels of cookie acceptance, validity period and automatic deletion after the user has visited a certain site.

Other security aspects related to cookies

Since identity protection is very valuable and is the right of every Internet user, it is advisable to know what possible problems cookies can create. Because through them information is constantly transmitted in both directions between the browser and the website, if an attacker or an unauthorized person intervenes during the data transmission, the information contained in the cookie can be intercepted. Although very rare, this can happen if the browser connects to the server using an unencrypted network (eg an unsecured WiFi network). Other cookie-based attacks involve missetting cookies on servers. If a website does not instruct the browser to use only encrypted channels, attackers can use this vulnerability to trick browsers into sending information over unsecured channels. Attackers then use the information to gain unauthorized access to certain websites. It is very important to be careful in choosing the most suitable method of personal information protection.

Tips for safe and responsible browsing based on cookies

Due to their flexibility and the fact that most of the most visited and largest sites use cookies, they are almost unavoidable. Disabling cookies will not allow the user access to the most widespread and used sites, including Youtube, Gmail, Yahoo and others.

How you can manage or disable cookies in your browser

Please note that the site currently does not have a technical solution that allows us to respond to your browser’s “do not track” signals, but you can always manage your cookie settings in your browser settings.

Most browsers allow you to:

  • see which cookies you have and delete them individually
  • block third-party cookies
  • to block cookies of certain sites
  • block the setting of all cookies
  • delete all cookies when you close your browser

If you disable all (our) cookies in your browser settings, certain sections or functions of our websites may not work because your browser may prevent us from setting cookies that are necessary for the website to function. We therefore recommend that you do not disable all cookies in your web browser.

In the list below you can find more information on how to disable cookies or how to manage cookie settings for the browser you are using:
