What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a set of information stored on your computer by a website you visit. They are used to provide the website with information about your preferences and browsing behavior (such as email address, browser settings, and more). When you revisit the same website, your web browser sends back the cookies that belong to that site. This enables the website to tailor its display and browsing experience to your needs and preferences.

It’s important to emphasize that a website cannot access other files on your computer or gain access to information you have not previously provided. This is a common practice used on over 90% of websites. According to European Union directives, we are obligated to request your consent before storing “cookies.”

What Types of Cookies Do We Use?

Session Cookies (Temporary Cookies): These are stored on your computer and are automatically deleted after you close your web browser. They allow the website to temporarily store data, such as comments or the contents of a shopping cart.

Persistent Cookies: These remain in your web browser even after you close it and typically have an expiration date. Our website uses persistent cookies to make it easier for registered users to access their accounts. They store data such as usernames and passwords, enabling the “remember me” functionality when logging in, so you don’t have to enter your credentials every time you visit our site.

What Are First-Party Cookies?

These cookies come from the website you’ve visited and can be either temporary or permanent. They allow websites to store data used when a user revisits the website.

What Are Third-Party Cookies?

There are several third-party services that store limited cookies on users’ computers (e.g., Facebook, Google Analytics, and AdWords). These cookies are not set by our web store and are often used to help interpret user behavior and for marketing purposes.

How to Disable Cookies?

Each user has the option to decide whether they want to allow cookies to be stored on their computer. You can configure cookie storage settings within your web browser’s settings.

Keep in mind that if you disable cookies, you may not be able to use some of the features on our website.
