Technical cookies for internal use

This website uses internal cookies essential to its functioning, such as cookies used to authenticate or continue registered users’ browsing sessions, to store favourites or to display products that are only available in the user’s country.

This website uses analytics cookies to collect statistics on general and individual website use. The information collected allows us to optimise the browsing experience and guarantee users the best possible service by identifying, for example, number of pages visited, language selected, visit frequency and recurrence, visit length, browser used, etc. Users can prevent the website recording their activity via either the exclusion options provided by the analytics tools or by those provided by their web browser.

These cookies are used to measure the effectiveness of our online campaigns, to provide users with information of specific interest to them and to show them ads tailored to their preferences. They are also used to restrict the number of ads shown to each user.

Depending on their particular policies, some ad services may use anonymous cookies to display personalised ads when users visit other websites. Users can configure their browsers to accept or block those cookies as they wish.

Social media cookies

Some social media, like Facebook, and third-party website services allow advertisers to create segmented audiences on their platforms made up of users who have visited our website.

This allows us to address those users directly on third-party platforms and offer them information, promotions and ads tailored to their particular interests.

We recommend users review the cookie and privacy policies of all their social media accounts and, where applicable, configure their privacy settings on each of them to permit the level of tracking that they wish to allow.
