This article contains user information for our website about both data protection and cookies.

We only collect personal data when users actively provide such information. This can be in forms or with corresponding methods. When we store personal data, this will be made very clear, either through the context of the form or by our directly informing you about it.

According to Section 2-7 b of the Electronic Communications Act, as a user of our website, you are entitled to information about what cookies we use and what their function is. A cookie is a short code or text that is stored in the browser when you use a website.

Here we will go through the website’s various functions where data is collected and/or cookies are used:

Our website uses encryption with https. If you wish to check that a page is encrypted, it will say https instead of just http in the browser’s address bar and most browsers will also show a padlock. We do this to ensure secure data communication between our website and the user’s computer.

Logging on
All logons are registered. The purpose is to be able to detect unsuccessful logon attempts, to stop attempted data intrusion and to record when and if a user last logged on. In this context, we store the following data: user name, date and time of logon, the URL used for logon and the user’s IP address.

As part of our efforts to create an easy-to-use website, we use Google Analytics to look at the usage patterns of visitors to the website. Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google Inc.

We might display video as part of the content of our website. Videos that are viewed with WordPress’ own video player do not use cookies or other tracking methods.

Videos that are embedded from YouTube track all video views and record user statistics. This is done with cookies that record which Google user is logged on and register geographical location, preferences and what website playback occurs on. YouTube also uses a cookie to adapt the video quality to the device’s capacity. YouTube is the data processor for all data related to its cookies. Read more about how YouTube and Google use cookies

When Vimeo is used as a video player, a third-party cookie is used to track all video views and record user statistics. Vimeo is the data processor for this cookie. Read about cookies that Vimeo uses:

We will occasionally advertise with Google Ads or on social media. We do this to present a relevant offer through personalised advertising to users who have already been in contact with us. We also use the channels’ statistical tools for usage patterns on the website.

These media store so-called third-party cookies to record which user profile may be logged on through the browser/device, which URL is visited, geographical location etc. This is done so as to be able to customise advertising and to generate user statistics. Since each medium can store different cookies in different contexts, we cannot know which cookies are in use at any given time Nor is it technically possible for us to track individuals based on the information in third-party cookies. The individual medium is the data processor and is responsible for data protection when this is in use.

If you do not wish to receive customised advertising through such channels, you can disable only third-party cookies, as described in this article at
