Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer, phone or tablet when you visit the site. Cookies help the site remember your preferences (such as username, language, text size and other presets) for a certain amount of time. The idea is that you should not have to redo the settings each time you access the site or browse different pages.
There are two different versions of cookies; session cookies and permanent cookies. At www.untie.se, both session cookies and permanent cookies are used.
Session cookies are temporarily stored in the computer memory during the time the user is active on the site. Session cookies are automatically deleted when the browser is shut down. Session cookies are required for the basic features of our site and therefore they are always turned on. They are used, for example, to remember if you have logged in and where you were on the site during a session.
This type of cookie saves a file that remains on the user's hard drive. It is used to enhance the user experience; for example, in order to be able to customize a website according to the user's wishes, choices and interests and for statistical follow-up. Permanent cookies have a predetermined lifespan and remain in the browser until the lifespan expires or until the user chooses to delete them in their own browser.
Functional cookies - used e.g. to determine if a user is logged in, for form management and to make the user experience as good as possible. Without these cookies our services will not work. Analysis cookies - used for statistics on the number of visits, which websites the user came from, to make the site more relevant to the user. These cookies help us improve our website.
If you do not want cookies to be stored on your computer, you can change that setting directly in your browser. You can delete all cookies that are on your computer and you can set the browser so that it does not receive any cookies. In that case, you may need to change some settings each time you access our site and some services and features may not work.
