What is a cookie?
Cookies are files or pieces of information that can be stored on your computer (or other Internet-connected devices, such as a smartphone or tablet) when you visit the Sites. A cookie usually contains the name of the website where it originates, the "life" of the cookie (i.e. how long it will remain on your device) and a value, which is usually a unique randomly generated number.
What types of cookies do we use?
Necessary: These cookies are essential to allow Sites to function properly, allowing you to browse the Sites and use our features. For example, by distinguishing humans from robots or memorizing previous actions such as the text entered when you return to a page in the same session.
If so, our payment providers may also use these cookies to store your payment information and process your payments, without registering these items in the Sites.
By connecting to sites via social networks, some cookies can be used by them. For more information, you can view the privacy policies of the social networks concerned.

Statistics: These cookies help us understand how visitors interact with Sites by providing information about the areas visited, the time spent on the Sites, the time of connection, and any problems encountered, such as error messages. This helps us improve site performance.
For example, we use Google Analytics, which uses internal cookies to generate reports on visitor interactions with Sites. These cookies are used to store information that does not personally identify internet users. These cookies record a unique encrypted identifier, used to generate statistical data on how the visitor uses the site. They do not allow you to be identified, either during your visit or when analyzing the data.

They also help us measure, manage and optimize the effectiveness of advertising campaigns on sites or other websites.

When you visit the Sites, you can receive cookies from third-party sites or domains. We strive to identify these cookies before they are used, so you can decide whether to accept them or not. This is particularly the case with the "Share" or "Like" buttons from social networks. More information about these cookies may be available on the website of the third party concerned, namely, Facebook and Instagram.
How long do we keep cookies?

Transparent GIFS (web tags /Web-bugs)
We and our third-party advertising partners use software technology called transparent GIFS (or web-bugs), which helps us better manage the content of our site by telling us which content is effective. Transparent GISs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, with a cookie-like function that track web users' online movements. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, transparent GISs are seamlessly integrated into web pages and about the size of the punctuation point at the end of that sentence. We do not associate information collected by transparent GIS with our customers' personal information.
