we can show you advertisements from third parties;

Browser settings

If you want to prevent us from storing cookies on your computer or smart phone, you can adjust your browser settings. You will then receive a warning before cookies are placed. You can also set your browser to reject all cookies or only third-party cookies. Cookies that have already been placed can also be easily deleted in the browser. 

You must set each browser separately. Not only every browser but also on every device you use. However, we would like to make it clear that if you do not want to receive cookies, we cannot guarantee that our web shop will work properly. For example, the shopping cart may not work properly or you may not even be able to see certain pages at all. 

Also, refusing all cookies does not mean that you will no longer see any advertisements. The ads will then only no longer be adapted to your interests and will therefore be repeated more often. This is because the system can no longer see which advertisement you have seen and which you have not seen. Would you still like to change the settings of your browser?
