What is a cookie?
The tool we use for this purpose is Google Analytics and Sitecore Statistics, which thereby also place a cookie on your IT-equipment for statistical analysis of the users’ visits and navigation on the website (so-called “third party cookies”).
By using cookies from Google Analytics, we monitor inter alia:
If you through the browser have visited our website previously and how many times,
Which country you come from and your preferred language
Which search engine you have used to be directed to our website
When and for how long you have visited our website.
On a few of our websites, we also use a cookie from Google Analytics which gives us the opportunity to target the readers of our advertisements on websites that are not administered by us (so-called “remarketing”). The purpose of doing this is to be able to present you with relevant advertisements.
Once a year for a period of one to two months, a cookie is used in regards to optional user surveys. The survey uses a cookie to avoid that you receive the survey you have already responded to or you have chosen not to take part of.
For how long will a cookie be stored?
Temporary session-ID cookies are used to show when and for how long a visitor is on our website and therefore expires when you close your browser. Persistent cookies show if the visitor has been to the website before, where the visitor is from and which search engine has been used, keywords etc. Such cookies expire after e.g. 6 months, 2 years or up to 10 years, and are renewed when the visitor visits the website.
