Cookies and analytics
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file stored on your computer or mobile device containing information. In technical terms, cookies can be divided into two types. One type saves a file permanently on your computer. The other is not stored permanently on your computer, but instead disappears when you close your web browser. The latter type is called session cookies and is used at Visitsweden.com. A session cookie is a randomly generated ID that identifies a web browser during your visit to a website, so the latter does not need to store information for many different users.
Cookies enable us statistical information, which we use to improve your experience on our site. Cookies allow servers to automatically collect the data in log files, such as browser type, operating system and the date of the visit. Cookies also enable the display of targeted advertising (retargeting) based on the collected data anonymous.
