What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file. Cookies are divided into session-specific and persistent cookies. Session cookies are deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies remain on your device for a specific period defined in the cookie, after which they are deleted. These cookies may be renewed every time you visit the online or mobile service which placed the cookie. In some cases, the data gathered by the cookie allows for identifying the person through the person’s IP address, for example.

Cookie types

Cookies are separated into first and third-party cookies. A first-party cookie belongs to the online or mobile service you visit, whereas third-party cookies belong to third parties, such as web analytics software.

Why do we use cookies?

We use cookies to gather information on, for instance, how you use our online and mobile services, the kinds of products and services you are interested in, and whether you have used our online or mobile services before. We use this information to provide you with an increasingly better experience of our online and mobile services, to monitor the use of the services, to develop our products and services, and to target our marketing. The cookies allow us to remember the settings you have chosen and your preferences in terms of using the services. They also enable us to provide you with content we think you might be interested in.

How long do the cookies remain on my device?

The period for which cookies are operational varies. Session cookies are deleted when you close the browser, whereas persistent cookies are stored for a longer period. For more detailed information on the storage periods of cookies, go to the cookie listing available under the “Show details” button. We will store your information for as long as it is necessary for a particular need, or until we can assume the information is no longer required. For example: when you visit our online store, the cookies need to remember your data for the shopping basket or cart to function in the desired way. If you want to return to the online store later to continue your shopping, you won’t need to repeat your selections. The cookies remember the details for as long as we can assume that you will no longer return to your shopping.

Can I visit an online or mobile service if I’ve denied the use of cookies?

Yes, you can. You can use an online or mobile service even if you’ve denied the use of cookies. Even so, please note that some functionalities, such as the shopping basket, surveys and prize draws, as well as tools, require the use of cookies and may work deficiently or not at all if you have blocked the use of cookies.  If you deny the use of cookies or modify the settings governing their use, your device receives a cookie which remembers these choices. Despite this, the cookie does not include any data which would enable the user’s identification.
