- Cookies in your browser
- Technical info on servers
- User information and databases
A cookie is a mechanism where your browser can take care of information it receives from websites, and then send these back to the websites again later. This is done automatically without the user having to think about it.
The cookies can have several functions, such as keeping track of settings, which user you are logged in to, what you have access to, help with making sure you get the right content sent, tracking ad impressions and more.
Cookies make it possible to keep track of such settings and other things over time, so that information is more easily accessible by repeated visits to the website. Information information is also used to temporarily manage user-specific information when visiting different parts of the same website.
For examples of the site’s many features, use maintenance tools: One cookie is used to remember the volume setting of video players, another is used to remember if you have crossed this box with information so that you do not have to see it again the next time you visits this site from the same browser you are currently using.
Cookies are automatically stored by your browser as small text files on your computer. You can change settings for how cookies are handled in your browser.
Information companies can be provided by all types of content on the site, both text pages, images and more. The cookies only send back to the site you got them from, not to other sites.

This site stores information cabinets to handle three levels of functionality:
- Critical information is used to keep track of user information, approach, any personal settings and more. Without these, the site will not work properly.

Portions of this additional information provided by external service providers. Analytical feature information cabinets are used to improve the site (which is still under development), but these are not critical to the site’s functionality.
- Ad cookies are used by internal and third-party ad systems to keep track of and track ad impressions.
