Cookie Statement

1. What are cookies?

Top Shop International SA (TSI SA) uses web cookies on its websites.

Cookies are text files that are stored onto the computer that a user uses to visit and use a website. Upon the user's repeat visit to the website, the provider can access information from the user's computer that was collected with the aid of cookies.
By using cookies, TSI SA ensures better, more user-friendly and more personally oriented website functionality and presentation for the user. At the same time, cookies assist in user analysis, recording visits (for statistical purposes) and providing more efficient advertising.

Cookies perform a number of functions – they enable tracking website visits and offering different types of campaigns and discounts (i.e. providing gifts for the first 100 visitors, free of charge delivery within the first ten minutes of visiting the website). Cookies also allow us to store information on whether you are a subscriber of our web news, a Club5* member or eligible for certain discounts or benefits.
Cookies, or rather the data that are collected with the aid of cookies, do not, in and of themselves, enable a user to be identified in the sense of legislation that pertains to the protection of personal information because the use of cookies does not enable the identification of a concrete person.

TSI SA uses its own cookies on its websites, while it also enables selected third parties to store their own cookies on a user's computer (so-called 'third party cookies'). When consenting to the use of cookies, a user consents to the cookies of both TSI SA and third parties.

Because we continuously strive to provide you with the best possible user experience, our websites function optimally only when cookies are enabled. In this way, we can identify you during a repeat visit to our website, while cookies also allow us to uncover and eliminate errors. Therefore, accessing our website is quicker and more personalized when cookies are enabled. Additional information is stored only with your consent – for example, when you enter information during the purchase of a product or upon membership/registration.

2. Cookies are not…

  • intended for spying on users and DO NOT track everything that a user does,
  • ill-intentioned code or viruses,
  • related to undesired messages,
  • capable of tracking your keyboard entries (they cannot store your passwords),
  • intended only and exclusively for advertisement purposes.

3.2 Functional cookies

Functional cookies allow a website to remember your selected options (i.e. your username, language or region of origin) and provide you with improved and even more personalized options. A website that has stored information on your region of origin can, for example, display the correct calculation for the delivery costs of your purchase.

Functional cookies are also strictly necessary for certain types of campaigns, through which you receive various benefits such as free or charge delivery, gifts, additional discounts and benefits. Functional cookies also allow you to participate in prize games.
