For modern websites to work according to visitors’ expectations, the websites need to collect certain basic information about visitors. To do this, our website will create small text files which are placed on your device – these files are known as cookies. Cookies are uniquely assigned to each visitor and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to the visitor. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your device.
These cookies do various jobs which make your experience of the website smoother and more interactive. Cookies are used to remember your preferences and to help navigate between pages more efficiently. Cookies may be necessary for the proper functionality of the website.
Different kinds of cookies
Cookies can be categorized by how long they are stored and their function.
Cookies categorized by length of storage are called “persistent cookies” or “session cookies”. Cookies categorized according to function are called “strictly necessary cookies” or “performance cookies”.
Persistent cookies remain on your device for a set period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time that you visit the website. Session cookies are temporary. They allow website operators to link the actions of a visitor during a browser session. A browser session starts when you open a browser window and finishes when you close it. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.
Strictly necessary cookies are essential to navigate around a website and to use its features. Without them, you would not be able to use basic services such as your choice of language of the website. These cookies do not gather information about visitors that could be used for marketing or to remember where a visitor has been on the internet. Performance cookies collect anonymous data for statistical purposes on how visitors use a website, they don’t contain personal information, and are used to improve your experience.
How we use them at Karl-Adam Bonniers Stiftelse
We use persistent and strictly necessary or performance cookies to calculate the number of site visitors, to allow you to choose language of the website and for the website to be able to remember your choice, to see the length of time spent on the site, pages clicked on and how you found our website. We use session cookies to improve the usability of our site and to route you to the most available web server.
How you can control cookies through your browser
Most browsers accept cookies automatically, but you can alter the settings of your browser to erase cookies or to prevent automatic acceptance. Browsers generally provide the option to see the cookies currently stored and to accept, reject or delete cookies, block third party cookies, block cookies from particular sites, accept all cookies and subscribe to a notification when a cookie is issued. A visit to the ‘options’ or ‘preferences’ menu on your browser will allow you to change settings. The browser help section usually provides detailed information on how this is accomplished.
It is possible to opt out of having your anonymized browsing activity within websites recorded by performance cookies. You can prevent your data from being used by installing a Browser Add-on that blocks the functionality.
Don’t forget that by not allowing performance cookies, this stops us from being able to learn what you like or don’t like about our website so that we can make it better.
