What is a cookie and what is it used for?
A cookie is a small text file that a website transfers to the site visitor’s hard disk or web browser to track the site usage. Cookies are used on many websites to provide visitors access to different functions. The information in a cookie makes it possible to follow how a visitor is using the website.
Two kinds of cookies
One type of cookie saves a file on your computer for an extended period of time and its purpose is to facilitate the activities of an individual person, for example, when using a functionality that requires a login, during registration or when ordering material. Cookies are used to measure the number of page views and visitors for internal and external statistics. Statistical information is anonymous and does not contain any names, e-mail addresses or any other information that can be connected to one individual.
The other kind of cookie is called a “session cookie”. When a visitor is surfing a webpage, this cookie is stored temporarily in the cache memory of the computer. This type of cookie may be used, for example, to keep track of the chosen language. Session cookies are not stored on your hard disk for an extended period and will disappear when you close your browser.
This website uses both types of cookies to make it easier for you to access the information on the site.
Unless specifically stated elsewhere, cookies are never used by the Trelleborg Group for the purpose of gathering personal data.
