How we use cookies

We use so-called cookies on our website. A cookie is a small text data file that is saved in your browser. We use cookies for technical reasons and to make our web services easier for visitors to use. Cookies are also used to monitor traffic to our website and for statistics.

A cookie is a small data file with text which is saved in your Internet browser. There are two types of cookies, permanent and temporary ("session cookies"). Permanent cookies are stored as files on your computer or mobile phone for a certain time until you delete them or the server which sent them deletes them. Session cookies are stored temporarily and disappear when you shut your browser.

A cookie can be set as a first-party cookie or third-party cookie. First-party cookies are set by the owner of the website. Third-party cookies are set by another website.

How we use cookies

We use cookies so you can use our website in the way we intended and be able to give you, the visitor, better service. Certain cookies are required in order for our website, and our services to you, to work. These cookies are used, for example, to support several simultaneous visitors to the website and identify each visitor so that the choices you make on the website remain active throughout the visit.

In addition, cookies are used to gather statistics regarding the number of visitors to the website and to collect information about how our websites are being used and how we can improve it. This information makes it possible for us to develop and optimize our website.

Google Analytics

These cookies are used to form a picture of how visitors use our website and thereby improve content, navigation, and structure. The information collected in these cookies (including your IP address) is forwarded to and stored by Google Inc. on servers in the USA. Google may transfer this information to a third party if required to do so by law or in instances when a third party is processing the information on Google's behalf. Google will not link IP addresses with any other data in Google's possession. We have set Google Analytics so that the tool makes all information stored with Google anonymous. This is achieved by Google Analytics truncating (deleting) the last numbers of the visitors' IP addresses before the information is stored with Google.

These cookies contain no other personal information, and the information is only used in aggregates for statistics.

If you do not want to allow cookies to be used

If you do not want to accept cookies, you can set your browser so that you receive a warning each time a website wants to place a cookie on your computer, or block cookies entirely. Look in the browser's Help function for information on how to turn it off.

If you choose to deactivate cookies, you will miss out on several of our websites benefits and our website will not work as well as you, as a visitor to the site, expect.
