What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that, when connected to a website, is stored in your browser. When we refer to cookies (“cookies”) in this policy, other similar technologies and tools that collect and store information in your browser are included, and in some cases pass such information on to third parties in a manner similar to cookies. Examples include pixels, local storage, session storage and fingerprinting.

The sites will “remember” and “recognize” you. This can be done by placing cookies in three different ways:

The session is out, that is, until you close the window in your browser.
Time-limited, ie the cookie has a predetermined service life. The time can vary between different cookies.
For now, that is, the information remains until you decide to delete it yourself. This applies to local storage.
You can always access your browser and delete cookies already placed.

Third-party cookies

We use third-party cookies on our websites. Third-party cookies are placed by someone other than the person responsible for the website, in this case by a company other than Matfors Hydraulservice AB.
