Further, they enable you to like or recommend us on social media (such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest) and help you to rate and review our products.

Third-party advertising cookies and services, used by us, include for example Google Ads, Facebook, Bing Ads, Yahoo! Ads and Instagram Ads.

- As we sell products it’s important for us to understand statistics about how many of the visitors to our site actually make a purchase and as such this is the kind of data that these cookies will track.
