WHAT ARE COOKIES AND WHAT ARE THEY USED FOR?
Cookies are small text files which are sent to and stored on your device (mobile phone, computer or tablet) and which are common on the Internet. Some of the cookies are necessary to enable you to use the site's full functionality, while others are used in order to improve your user experience and facilitate navigation on the site.
There are two types of cookies: permanent and temporary (so-called session cookies). Permanent cookies are saved as a file on your device for a longer period of time in order to customise the site according to your wishes, selections and interests. They are used, for example, in connection with functions that tell you what is new since you last visited the site. When the expiration date is exceeded, the cookie is deleted when you return to the site that created it. Session cookies are placed temporarily on your computer when you visit the site, and are sent between your computer and the server during the time you visit the site and are deleted when you close your browser. These cookies are used, for example, to keep track of what language you have selected.
Some examples of what cookies can be used for:
- When you log onto a site a cookie is placed on your computer. In connection with each page change, your computer sends a cookie to the site you are visiting and, using the cookie, the site can determine that you are logged in and you avoid having to provide a username and password for each new page.
- When you want to tailor sites to your preferences. These preferences may concern the design on a site you visit often, customised contrast or font size, or customised sorting or selections.
- On sites that sell services, cookies are used to facilitate bookings or orders.
- Registering which people have visited which pages on a site. This information can then be used to choose the right advertisement or otherwise tailoring the pages the user may view. Many cookies used for advertising and tailoring content are third-party cookies.
- Monitoring the traffic through statistics to improve the site and learn more about different target groups. Many cookies used for statistics are third-party cookies.
- Keeping track of selected language, booking codes or membership levels.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF COOKIES
Cookies can be divided into categories depending on their function.
- Required: These are necessary for certain functions to work. This may be the case, for example, in order to identify and authenticate the user.
- Presentation and function: These cookies make your use of the site easier and more personal, for example, by customising information and offers to things in which you have previously shown interest. These cookies are also used to collect information (e.g. popular pages and user patterns) regarding the website visitors' use of the site so that we can improve the site. If you refuse to accept these cookies, the functionality of the website could become limited.

If, however, you do not wish to allow cookies, you can refuse to accept cookies in your browser's settings and delete cookies stored on your hard drive. You can also set your browser such that it notifies you when it receives a cookie. This way, you have the opportunity to accept or reject the cookie.
