3.What are the different type of cookie we use?
Below, we have outlined the category of cookies we use and the purposes for which they are used. The law states that we can store ‘functional cookies’ on your device if they are strictly necessary for the operation of our Services. For all other cookies, we need your permission. Our Services use different types of cookies. Some cookies are stored by third party services that appear on our pages (advertising cookies). You can, at any time, change or withdraw your consent from the Cookie Statement. see chapter 4:
- Functional cookies: these cookies are required for the basic functionality of the Services and are therefore always enabled. These cookies will remember you as you explore our Services. They help to facilitate the shopping bag and checkout processes and assist in security issues. Otherwise, the Services cannot function properly without these cookies.
- Analytic cookies: these cookies are used to collect information in an anonymous and aggregate way. We use, for example, Google Analytics to collect statistics. Read more about this and the possibility to opt out:https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/
- Targeting or advertising cookies: these cookies are used to deliver relevant ads to you, and they limit the number of times that you see an ad. They also help us to measure the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.
- Unclassified cookies: these cookies are cookies that we are in the process of classifying, together with the providers of individual cookies.
- Social Media cookies: we give you the opportunity to share content found on our Services via social media. For this, you can use the social media plug-ins. If you click on any of these, you will be redirected to the website of the relevant social media party. Once you click through, these parties place cookies.
