They help us to improve the functioning of our Website, to better respond to the interests of our users, and to measure the effectiveness of the content of our Website.

The term 'cookie'
Types of cookies
Cookies can be divided according to their origin, their function and their life span.
Own cookies are cookies placed by the owner of the visited website.
Third party cookies are cookies placed by an organisation other than the owner of the website you are visiting. These are cookies that are created by a company specialising in analysing websites and which provide the owner of the website with information about the frequency of visitors to their site.
Functional cookies are cookies that ensure that the Website functions properly (e.g. cookies for log-in or registration, language preferences). Functional cookies are logically own cookies.
Non-functional cookies are cookies that can be placed for statistical, social, targeting and commercial purposes. They have nothing to do with the purely technical support of the Website. Cookies with static purposes make it possible to check which pages of the Website you visit, where your computer is located etc. Social cookies enable the user to share the content of the visited Website directly with others through social media. Cookies with targeting purposes allow to build a profile based on your surfing behaviour, so that the displayed advertisements are tailored to your interests. Cookies with commercial purposes keep track of how many and which advertisements were shown to a user. Non-functional cookies can be your own cookies or cookies from third parties.
Permanent cookies remain on the user's device for the duration specified in the cookie and therefore also after you have closed your browser. They are activated each time the user visits the Website that has placed this cookie (e.g. cookies placed by social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Google Analytics etc). Most non-functional cookies are persistent cookies.
Session cookies allow us to simplify and link a user's actions during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and ends when they close the browser window. Session cookies are placed temporarily. As soon as you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted. Most functional cookies are session cookies.
These are cookies that remember your country and language preferences and your customer segment. There is also a cookie that remembers the position of your shopping cart during an order, as well as the cookie that remembers whether you have already been asked to participate in a survey so that we do not repeatedly present you with the same survey.
Performance / Analytical cookies
We use performance cookies to collect information about the use that visitors make of our website in order to improve the content of our website, to adapt it more to the wishes of visitors and to increase the ease of use of our website.
Cookies for behavioural targeting / remarketing
These cookies do not contain any personal data.
Social media cookies
For our marketing campaigns on Facebook, we use the tool "Pixel", which integrates a cookie created by Facebook into some of our web pages. This enables Facebook to track the actions of its users from an advertisement on the social network to a web page on our website. Facebook will then be able to recognise on its platform the user who visited the webpage in question, provide customised services and place more targeted advertisements. This data processing does not apply to users who are not on Facebook. Find out more about how Facebook collects, processes and uses data and about possible settings to protect your privacy in the Facebook user data policy.
