What is a cookie?
A cookie is a text file that the website you visit requests to be saved on your device (NB! with the device computer, reading tablet and smartphone unless otherwise stated). The cookie makes it possible to identify you as a visitor to a website. The information contained in the cookie can then be used to follow your browsing on websites that use the same type of cookie and thereby, for example, offers that are displayed can be adapted according to your previous searches.
There are two different types of cookies:
- The type that is more permanent and saves a text file for a longer period of time on your device. These cookies have a specific expiration date and are used, for example, for functions that tell you what’s new since you last visited the website in question. When the expiration date of the current cookie has passed, it is immediately deleted from your device when you visit the website that placed the cookie on your device again.
- The type of cookie that is more short-lived (so-called session cookies) and is temporarily stored in your means of communication during the time you visit a website. These cookies are used, for example, to keep track of which language you have chosen for the current website and disappear as soon as you close the browser.
