Essential information we collect

In operating our store, it is essential for us to capture some information about your device, such as your IP address and information related to your visit when you browse our store. For example, this might include time-stamp, the last page or product you visited, the indication that you logged in.

We do that in order to:

● remember who you are after you log in so that you do not need to authenticate at each click;

We call the information mentioned above “essential information” and we collect it through the use of cookies. Cookies are small text files that most websites uses.
