This Notice should be read in conjunction with our Privacy Notice which contains the necessary information on how we process your personal data, including that which may be collected by cookies where applicable. We may change the terms of this Notice from time to time.
1. WHAT ARE COOKIES?
A cookie is a small text file, usually consisting of letters and numbers, which is transferred and stored, for a time determined by the operator, on the device used by the user (a computer, tablet, smartphone or any mobile device) when the user accesses the Website. For example, some cookies uniquely identify one device, distinguishing it from another.
Please note that other similar technologies are used to collect information about the device you are using, such as pixel tags, web beacons or social network plug-ins, also fall into the general category of “cookies”. We also use pixels or web beacons in the direct marketing emails that we send to you. These pixels track whether our email was delivered and opened, and whether links within the email were clicked. They are not stored on your device but are invisibly embedded in the Website pages.
Some cookies are absolutely necessary to allow the Website to function properly and provide the user with a good browsing experience, such as simply moving from one page of the Website to another, and providing the services envisaged therein (e.g. purchasing and paying for glasses). Other cookies are necessary to make browsing easier and faster, (e.g. by remembering registration data or the contents of the shopping bag, or to make browsing as in line as possible with the user’s preferences and characteristics). In addition, certain cookies are useful for providing the operator of the Website with information that can be used for analytics and statistical purposes, for example to know the number of users connected, as well as for sending personalised promotional messages, or to ensure a direct link with social networks.
3. WHAT INFORMATION DO COOKIES CONTAIN
The information collected in the form of cookies generally relates to information about the user’s device, such as IP address, login details, operating system and platform used, type or terminal, screen resolution, type of internet browser, time zone setting, country of origin, information about visits to the Website including the URL, length of visit, search terms typed on the Website, products viewed or placed in the shopping bag, page response times, download errors and information about page interaction, such as the number of clicks or browsing patterns.
Generally, this information is not sufficient to identify the user personally, but it could be if it is read in combination with each other or with additional information collected by the Website or a third party.
We have coded and distinguished cookies according to how long they are stored on the user’s device, the party who installs and manages them and, above all, the purposes for which they are installed.
You will find the names and functions of each cookie as well as their retention period here.
Session cookies are defined as cookies installed when the Website is opened and deleted when the browser is closed, or when the Website is closed or the session expires. The information is thus stored temporarily and allows, for example, navigation to be maintained.
Permanent cookies are cookies that are stored on the user’s device for a period predetermined by the operator, even after closing the browser. They allow, for example, the user’s name and password to be saved or preferences to be remembered, so that the user does not have to enter them again when opening the Website.
