 Cookies must be enabled in order to be able to order products on the website. If the user chooses not to accept the cookies, you can still browse the website and use it for reference purposes. Cookies are enabled by default by most browsers, nevertheless a section with instructions on how to manage cookie settings for each browser can be found at the end of this page.


 It is important to point out that, while browsing the web, users may receive two different sorts of cookies:


 (i)       those of the website visited by the user (so-called “first party cookies”); and/or


 (ii)      those of other websites or web servers (so-called “third party cookies”).


 Cookies can also be classified into categories according to the purpose for which they are used:
