Find out more on how we use cookies in this cookie statement.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that makes it possible to identify visitors to a website. A cookie is stored in your unit (for example smart phone, reading tablet, or computer) and makes it possible for the website to recognize you upon your next visit of the website. Cookies are often categorized based on their origin, but also based on to what extent they are stored in your web browser. A cookie may either be sent to you from the website you are visiting (so called first-party cookies) or from another organisation providing services to the website, such as analysis and statistics companies (so called third-party cookies).

Cookies can also be categorised as session cookies or persistent cookies . A session cookie is sent to your computer for the webpages to function properly during your visit and is not retained on your computer. Instead it is erased when you close your web browser. The function of a session cookie is for example that it is activated when you return to a previously visited part of the website and thus facilitates your navigation on the website. A persistent cookie is in contrast stored in your web browser and thus allows for a web page to recognise your computer’ s IP address even if you turn off your computer or log out between visits.

Cookies on the Website

We use cookies on the Website to make your visit on the Website as pleasant and smooth as possible. The cookies we use assist us to manage user access, to ensure that a user reaches the correct server, and that the Website works in a safe manner.

We also use cookies to analyse how you as a visitor use the Website for the purpose of developing and improving our Website.

For more information about our processing of personal data related to our use of cookies, please see our privacy statement available on our Website.

Your consent to our use of cookies

When you visit the Website for the first time, we will ask for your consent to our use of cookies that are not necessary for the Website to function. This consent is obtained in relation to cookies which are used for statistical and analytical purpose. It is voluntarily to consent, and you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. Other types of cookies that we use on our Website are necessary for the Website’s basic functions and are activated automatically even if you do not consent to our use of other types of cookies.

Settings in your browser

You also have the option to prevent necessary cookies from being activated by shutting off cookies in your browser’s safety settings. Please note that most browsers have a standard setting accepting the use of cookies, but you can easily refrain from allowing websites to activate and store cookies on your unit by making a setting in your browser, including blocking cookies or erasing cookies already stored in the unit.

How you do this depends on what means of communication you are using. If you are using:

  • a smart phone, you usually change the settings in your phone’s web browser,
  • a reading tablet, you usually change the settings in the operating system, and
  • a computer, you may change the settings in your computer’s web browser.

Please note that if you choose to deactivate cookies in your web browser, this may entail that cookies which are necessary for the Website’s basic functions are shut off. This means that your browser may stop functioning in a safe and secure manner and that some services may not be provided.
