Effective date: January 2023

Some of our online services, including our websites, emails and other electronic communications with you, use technologies such as cookies, web beacons, device or other identifiers and local storage to provide a seamless experience. We sometimes refer to these features collectively as cookies or “online tracking technologies.” To the extent that our online tracking technologies result in the processing of your personal data, details of how we use that personal data and your rights in relation to that personal data are discussed in our Global Privacy Policy.

Our Cookie Policy explains the different types of cookies we use and how you can control them. We hope it helps you understand the cookies on our websites and feel safer. We may change this policy from time to time, so please review it periodically. To learn about the other ways we use information we collect about you, please read our Global Privacy Policy.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are downloaded to your browser or device when you visit a website. We use them to make our websites function or work more efficiently. Our websites read and write these files so that they can recognize you and remember important information that makes your use of our websites more convenient.

For example, cookies allow you to stay logged in to your Wahl account, even across different devices. They also help keep our websites secure by supporting and enabling security features and detecting unsafe activities. Cookies can also provide localized experiences (for example, by displaying the website in your preferred language) and can remember your preferences and settings so you do not have to tell us each time you visit. We also use cookies to understand how people use our services, to provide advertising on other websites, and to find out whether our emails have been read and whether you find them useful.

What types of cookies are used on our websites and what do we use them for?

Our websites use both first-party cookies (which we set) and third-party cookies (which we do not set and cannot access). Some cookies are temporary and will disappear when you close your browser or turn off your computer. These are called “session cookies”. Other cookies remain on your computer even after it is deactivated or you close your browser. These are called “persistent cookies”.

Below you will find the different types of cookies, how we use them and the choices you have. A more specific cookie list is set out below.

Strictly Necessary Cookies

Strictly necessary cookies enable you to use different parts of our websites. We use them to ensure that our digital services work. Because the services you request cannot be provided without them, they are always activated when you visit our websites. You cannot disable strictly necessary cookies unless you change your browser settings.


Functional cookies

Functional cookies allow us to personalize our websites and provide enhanced functionality. For example, they allow us to remember the choices you make on our websites, whether we have asked you to participate in a promotion or opportunity, and your purchases so that we can track your orders and display them in your account.

Where required by law, functional cookies are only used on the websites where you have consented to their use. You can change your cookie settings at any time via the Cookie Policy and Preferences tool, available in the footer of our websites .


Performance cookies

Performance cookies tell us how people use our websites, help us ensure that our websites are working properly, and let us know when we need to troubleshoot problems. Because these cookies provide us with analytical information about how our website and services perform and how we can improve our website and services, we sometimes call them “analytics cookies.”

Performance cookies show us which pages on the website are most visited, allow us to see general usage patterns on the website, help us record any difficulties you have with the website and show us whether our advertising is effective or not. For example, Google Analytics collects information about how visitors use our website, including the number of visitors to the website, where visitors came to the website from, and what pages they visited. We use this information to create reports and to help us improve the website. To learn more about Google's privacy practices, visit In addition to site-specific preferences, you can manage Google Analytics by downloading the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.


Advertising cookies

We and our service providers may use targeting or advertising cookies to deliver advertisements that we believe are more relevant to you and your interests. For example, we may use targeting or advertising cookies to limit the number of times you see the same advertisements and to measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns. These cookies remember what you have viewed and we may share this information with other organizations.

You can change your settings at any time by visiting the link in the footer of our websites . For more information about third-party ad networks and similar entities that use these technologies, please visit and to opt-out of the advertising practices of such ad networks and services go to . Disabling third-party targeting or advertising cookies does not necessarily mean that you will not see our advertising on third-party websites, but only that such advertising will not be targeted to you through the use of third-party cookies.

How do third parties use cookies on the website?

In certain circumstances, we may work with third parties to provide services on our websites. These third parties, including advertisers, may use their own cookies to collect information about your activities on our website. They use this information to learn more about your interests in order to show you ads that they think you would like to see based on the content you have viewed. Third-party advertisers may also use this information to measure the effectiveness of their advertising.

For more information about third-party cookies, see the cookie list below.

How do I control cookies and tracking?

You can choose how you interact with our cookies as described in this policy. When you first visit our websites, you will see a cookie preference banner informing you about the types of cookies we use. You can use the settings tool to decide whether you only want to accept strictly necessary cookies or whether you also want to accept functional, performance or advertising cookies. You can update your choices at any time by visiting the Cookie Policy and Settings link in the footer of the website and clicking the “Edit Cookie Settings” button.

In general, you may be able to change the settings to have your browser refuse certain cookies or to notify you before accepting cookies. To do this, please follow your browser's instructions, usually located in the "Help", "Tools" or "Edit" tabs. Some third parties also offer the option to refuse their cookies directly by clicking on an opt-out link.

At and

Stopping all cookies may mean that you are unable to access some of our websites and other services or that some of them may not function properly for you. For example, you may not be able to access your profile/account and certain personalized content. Removing all cookies from your computer may also affect your subsequent visits to our websites, for example, by requiring you to enter your login name when you return to that website. Please note that even if you exercise any of the options described above, you will still see advertisements, but they are not based on the information collected by these tracking technologies and therefore may not be necessarily relevant to your interests.
