Consent

On your first visit to the website, you will be asked for your consent on the use of cookies.

By accepting our use of cookies, apart from necessary cookies, you consent to our use of cookies as described under “Types of cookies and how we use them” below. You may at any time change or withdraw your cookie consent – See the section “How do I manage cookies or turn them off” below.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small piece of data that a website stores on your device when you visit it and which is then read when you later revisit the site.

A cookie may contain information about the website itself, a unique identifier that allows the site to recognise your web browser when you return to the website, additional data that serves the purpose of the cookie, and the lifespan of the cookie itself.

Cookies are used to enable certain features (e.g. logging in), to track site usage (e.g. analytics), or to store your user settings (e.g. timezone, notification preferences).

Session cookies vs. persistent cookies

Session cookies only last as long as your online session. This means that they will disappear from your computer or device when you close your browser. They are also sometimes referred to as temporary cookies. Typically, session cookies are used to remember what a user put in their basket when they are browsing a website.

Persistent cookies are different. These cookies are sometimes called permanent cookies. They will stay on your computer or device after you close your browser. These types of cookies will expire according to the time specified in the cookie.

Types of cookies and how we use them

Necessary cookies
Necessary cookies are required for the basic functionality of our website to work. We also use necessary cookies to help with ensuring that you are given the option to accept or reject cookies, block non-necessary cookies from working until you give consent, and remember your cookie settings and choices. The cookies also help keep track of, if, and when, you gave consent to analytical cookies, T&Cs and email marketing.

It’s not necessary to accept nor possible to reject the use of necessary cookies as they are core for the functionality of our website.

Analytical cookies
Analytical cookies gather statistics. We use this information to help us improve our website. The information collected via the analytical cookies track how you use our website during your visit. It helps us understand visitor usage patterns, identify, and diagnose problems or errors you may encounter, and make better strategic decisions in improving the website experience. The cookies collect information in a way that does not directly identify anyone.

We will only set analytical cookies on your device if you give us your consent.

Preference cookies
Preference cookies are used in collecting information about your device and any settings you may configure for the purpose of remembering these settings when you’re visiting our website (like language and timezone settings). With this information, websites can provide you with customised, enhanced or optimised content and services.

We will only set preference cookies on your device if you give us your consent.
We don’t use preference cookies.

Targeting/advertising cookies
Targeting/advertising cookies are used in determining what promotional content is more relevant and appropriate to you and your interests. Websites may use them to deliver targeted advertising or to limit the number of times you see an advertisement. This helps companies improve the effectiveness of their campaigns, and the quality of content presented to you. These cookies may be set by the website you’re visiting (first party) or by third-party services. Targeting/advertising cookies set by a third-party service may be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service.

We will only set preference cookies on your device if you give us your consent.
We don’t use targeting/advertising cookies.

These cookies are used to collect information about how you use our website. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the website. The cookies collect information in a way that does not directly identify anyone, including the number of visitors to the website, duration of visit, where visitors have come to the website from and the pages they visited.

These cookies are used to estimate the users bandwidth on pages with integrated YouTube videos and registers a unique ID to keep statistics of what videos from YouTube the user has seen

What’s the difference between first and third party cookies?

First party cookies are cookies that are set by the website that you are visiting and it’s only this website that can access and read these cookies.

Third party cookies are set by someone other than the owner of the website you’re visiting. As an example, some pages have content from other sites like YouTube. YouTube may set their own cookies on your browser when you play the video from YouTube. Cookies set by other sites and companies (i.e. third parties) can be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service.

We may engage third parties to assist with maintenance, operation, creation or functionality of our website, e.g. analytics providers. We grant these third parties’ access to selected information to perform specific tasks on our behalf.

We are, as a general rule, joint controller with providers of third-party cookies for the collection of data via such cookies and the disclosure to the provider. The provider of third-party cookies is data controller for the processing taking place after receiving the personal data from us. We recommend reading the privacy policy of the third party providers.

How do I manage cookies or turn them off?

As part of our cookie policy, we will ask for your consent to cookies, except for necessary cookies, when you first visit the website.
We also always give you the option to change your consent. If you at one point gave consent to non-necessary cookies on our website, you can always change which cookies you will give consent to.
You can manage the cookies stored on your computer, to provide or withdraw consent or turn them off completely, through your browser settings. If you use multiple browsers and wish to block cookies or change or withdraw your consent, remember to do this in all browsers. If you browse websites from multiple devices, you may also need to update your settings on each individual device. Be aware that this may affect your browsing experience.
