What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file with information, which is saved on your computer (or a device with internet connection such as a tablet or a mobile phone) when you visit a website. Cookies are used to make web pages work more efficiently but also to provide certain information to the owner of a website. This may relate to, for example, language settings or other preferences saved to be used for future visits. Cookies make it possible to separate different users from each other, which in turn can result in a more positive experience of the site for each user.
Cookies used on our website
There are two types of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. Both of these types of cookies are used on Carlfors Bruk AB’s website. Persistent cookies are stored like a file on your computer for a certain period, until you delete them, or the server that sent them deletes them. Session cookies are stored temporarily while you are browsing a webpage, and disappear when you close the browser.
However, the information collected through cookies does not contain any personal information, but is used to determine visitor patterns in relation to the use of our web services. No IP addresses are saved in our databases in relation to behaviour on carlfors.com. As a website visitor, information about you can never be linked with your identity.
Carlfors.com also has cookies to calculate and report user numbers and traffic. We also use so-called third party cookies from other companies to conduct market research and traffic measurements.
Personal data may be disclosed to our partners in the manner and to the extent necessary to fulfill our obligations to you in the form of, for example, mailing of newsletters.
