Definition of cookies

A cookie, or cake in Swedish, is a small text file that the website asks to store on a visitor's computer, and that contains a certain amount of information and a timestamp.

The browser saves the information in a special place on your computer and returns the information in the cookie to the web site you visited at every request of pages/images from the site.

Two types of cookies

Cookies on this site are used to improve the user experience and the optimization of the website. There are two types of cookies:

  • One type, called a persistent cookie, saves a file that remains on a visitor's computer. It is used for example to adapt a website to the visitor's preferences, choices and interests and statistical monitoring.
  • The second type is called a session cookie. During the time a visitor is on a web page, stored temporarily in your computer's memory. Session cookies disappear when you close your browser.

Our website uses both session cookies and permanent cookies. Regardless of what type of cookie used on this site are saved no personal information about the visitor (for example, e-mail address, or name).

Brief on the law on electronic communications

Under the electronic communications act SFS 2003:389, which entered into force on 25 July 2003 and changed 1 July 2011, everyone who visits a website with cookies should be informed if the website contains cookies or not (almost all websites use some form of cookies and/or services that webbstatistiksystem, which in turn use cookies) and in this case, the purpose of the use of cookies.

You must also provide information about how cookies can be avoided, and the visitor should also be able to agree to that cookies are used, that is to say, put on a visitor's computer.

On this site we provide information about all the cookies used (see below). We report what the different cakes called, if there are session cookies or permanent cookies, to which domain they belong (here you can see the rest of the cookies are first party cookies (they have the same domain name as the website) and which cookies are third party cookies (they have a different domain name than the website), the data stored in the cookies, what information is used and how long the cookie is stored in the visitor's browser.

In their browser, you can set whether you want to avoid cookies (see more below). How consent should be handled, there are no set rules around the new law. On this site we interpret the law so as to give its consent to the cookies by using your browser's settings and/or other tools for managing cookies.
