Information cookies

This website uses cookies to improve functionality and user experience.

A cookie is a mechanism by which your browser can take care of information it receives from websites, and then send these back to the websites again later. This is done automatically without the user having to think about it.

The cookies may have several functions, such as keeping track of settings, which user you are logged in as, what you have access to, help to ensure that you receive the right content, tracking ad impressions and others.

Cookies make it possible to keep track of such settings and other things over time, so that the information is more easily accessible on repeated visits to the website. The cookies are also used for temporary handling of user-specific information when visiting different parts of the same website.

Two examples from the many functions the website uses cookies to maintain: One cookie is used to remember the volume setting on the video player, another is used to remember if you have ticked off this box of information so you don’t have to see it again the next time you visit this site from the same browser you are using now.

Cookies are automatically saved by your browser as small text files on your computer. You can change the settings for how cookies are to be handled in your browser.

Cookies can be provided by all types of content on the website, both text pages, images and others. The cookies are only sent back to the site you got them from, not to other sites.

Many websites, including this one, will not function properly if you do not allow the use of cookies.

This website stores cookies to manage three levels of functionality:

  1. Critical cookies are used to keep track of user information, access, some personal settings and more. Without these, the website will not function as it should.
  2. Analytics cookies are used to keep track of website traffic, which parts of it are most popular, which parts are used the most and more. Parts of these are third-party cookies provided by external service providers. Cookies for analytical functions are used to improve the website (which is under constant development), but these are not critical for the functionality of the website.
  3. Advertising cookies are used by internal and third-party advertising systems to keep track of and track ad impressions.

There is a statutory requirement that this information be made available to you as a user of websites that use such cookies.
