At verksamt.se we use cookies to make sure the website works well for you. Learn more about what a cookie is, which cookies the website contains, what they are used for and how you can choose to opt out.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on the device you browse from, for example your computer or mobile phone. Cookies contain information and we use them to give you as a visitor access to various functions. A cookie can, for example, contain information about login or settings on the website. The information in the cookie can also be used to collect website statistics.

Different cookies are saved for different lengths of time

There are two types of cookies, persistent cookies and session cookies. On the website we use both types:

  • A persistent cookie is a file that remains on your computer, tablet or phone for a longer period of time so that you do not have to change settings or see information boxes several times.
  • The second type is called a session cookie. While you are on the website, it is temporarily stored on the device you are browsing from. It is used for our e-services and to facilitate navigation. Session cookies disappear when you close the browser.

The two types of cookies can be placed directly in your browser by us, so called first-party cookies. They can also be placed in your browser by a party other than us and are then called third-party cookies.

You can also choose to set your browser to actively accept each time a website sends a new cookie to your computer. How to make the settings differs between different browsers.
