What is a cookie and why do we use them?

Why do we use cookies?

We mainly use cookies to register the traffic on our website. The purpose of doing this is to improve our website and our service. The tool we use for this purpose is Google Analytics. A cookie from Google Analytics identifies your computer, not the individual. Click here to learn ”How Google Analytics uses Cookies”.

By using cookies from Google Analytics, we can monitor, inter alia:

  • Whether you have visited our website previously
  • What country you come from
  • What website you have visited previously
  • 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 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 connection with optional user surveys. The survey uses a cookie to make sure you don’t receive the survey if you have already responded to it, or if you have declined to take part in it.
