3. Cookies used on the Website

By clicking ‘Accept’ on the cookie pop-up, you give your consent to us placing and/or reading cookies. We use several different types of cookies: (1) functional cookies; (2) analytical cookies; and (3) advertising cookies. Some of these are session cookies that are temporary and allow us to link your actions during a browser session. Session cookies are erased when you close the browser. Other cookies are persistent cookies, which remain on your device for the period of time specified in the cookie. This Website uses cookies for the following purposes: 


Functional cookies are essential and help you navigate the Website. They enhance the user friendliness of the Website. These cookies make sure that you only have to pass the age-gate once and that your basket is saved during all the steps of your checkout process. These cookies also help to support website security and basic functionality. 


Analytical cookies help us to understand the behaviour of our visitors and their usage of the Website in an aggregated manner. For instance, we can use these cookies to gain insight into how our visitors use our Website. This means we can find out what works and what does not. It allows us to continuously improve the Website and to measure how effective our advertising and communication is. Analytical cookies also allow the Website to remember choices made (such as language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. An example might be that our Website recognises if the user has already signed up for our newsletter, or if the user is seeing a certain page for the first time. 


Advertising cookies will remember your product and page preferences, and in general that you visited the Website. We strive to provide you with advertisements relevant to you and your interests on other online platforms based on your visits and surfing behaviour on our Website and other third party websites. Based on these interests, we develop a segmented profile and then adapt the content and the advertisements on our Website for various groups of customers. Third parties that set cookies via our Website may also try to find out what your interests are in this way, and this information may be used to present you with content or advertisements that appear more likely to be of interest to you on other websites. In this case, the information about your current Website visit may be combined with information from previous visits to websites other than ours. At the same time, these advertising cookies are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as to help measure the effectiveness of advertisements. 

Even if no advertising cookies are used, please note that you may still be provided with advertisements on our Website; however, these advertisements will not be tailored to your interests. 

Third party social networks (e.g. Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn) may also place cookies. This enables you to share content of the Website on social networks. These third parties may use cookies for their own purposes. We have no influence over how these social media networks make use of your data.
