What are cookies? 

Cookies are text files that are stored on your device (e.g. a computer, laptop, or smartphone) as you browse the internet.  

When you revisit our website, your browser sends a cookie back to the website (or to its server, strictly speaking), and in this way, for example, we can recognise when the user visits us again. 

Cookies have a stated expiry date after which they become inactive. Our websites and applications use other similar technologies such as pixels, plugins, tags, and web beacons. We will refer to these technologies collectively as cookies. 

We use cookies particularly to obtain and process information about the browser and its version, operating system, URL of the previously visited page, IP address, time of the server request, user ID, language, searches on the website, products added to the basket, authentication data, data on the content viewed, and data on other activities carried out on the website or in the application. We combine your user ID with other data provided by you (such as email address or telephone number). 

 

Why do we use cookies?

Additional important information concerning Website operation: 

Local Storage 

Our websites also use a technology called Local Storage. Local Storage is a location where information is stored in your browser. Contrary to cookies, the data stored in Local Storage are not sent by the browser each time the website is visited. Here we will save your searches so that when you re-enter them they will appear in prompts and thus your search will be faster.

Push notifications are short messages which appear on your device’s screen. 

For us, they are a marketing tool which supports our communication with you. For you, they are a source of information on our services, including news, facilities and seasonal activities, campaigns, competitions or events. 

We need your consent to send you push notifications. When you enter the website or application, we will ask you whether you want to receive notifications from us. If you consent, we will be able to send you the content you might find interesting even when you leave our website or application. 

How can I disable push notifications?  

You opt out of receiving notifications at any time by changing the settings of your browser or application. Below you will find details about how to disable notifications in the most popular browsers:
