What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file sent from our web server and stored by your browser. There are two types of cookies, regular cookies and session cookies. Session cookies disappear when you close your browser and are therefore not saved, while regular cookies are stored on your computer for a longer period of time.
Some cookies are optional and some cookies are necessary for the website to function. Cookies are often divided into four categories:
Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are necessary to enable the user to browse the website and to use its functions, such as saving items at the checkout.
Cookiesthat allow the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalization are functional cookies. These cookies will allow a website to, for example, remember choices the user has made in the past.
Also known as performance cookies, these cookies collect information about how users use a website, such as which pages they visit and which links they clicked on. Their sole purpose is to improve the functionality of the website.
These cookies track visitors' online activity to help advertisers deliver more relevant advertising or to limit how many times they see an ad.
