Cookies

Here is some information about how and why we at SSN use cookies!

What exactly is a cookie?

A cookie can be several things. In this context, a small text file is stored on your computer when you visit a web page. The file is used to store information about which pages you have visited and what you have done there. That way we can make the website better. Do you accept that? Then just continue to use the site as normal.

Why does SSN use cookies?

Some cookies are needed to make the website work properly. Others help the site and remember your preferences. Such as your username or password or your preferred language. Cookies mean that you do not have to fill in the same information every time you visit the same website. The site will work better and you will have a better experience and service. In SSN, we use cookies to register how you use ssn.no, so that we can improve our websites and make them easier and better to use. What cookies cannot do, on the other hand, is to "steal" information about you or your computer system.

Who sees the information?

SSN has an agreement with companies that compile online statistics for us in line with the Personal Data Act. This applies, for example, to information you give us in forms you submit.

In SSN we use these cookies (10.06.2020):

  • _ga and _gat, which are used as part of Google Analytics. These cookies do not store any personal information and are only used to distinguish between unique users.
  • CorePublishSession, contains a reference ID for a session file on the web server. Will for anonymous users does not contain personal data, but can be used for intermediate storage of screen data and search texts. The cookie is automatically deleted no later than 15 minutes after the user has been inactive / closed the website.

How do I turn off cookies?

If you do not accept the use of cookies, you can turn them off from the menu in your browser. You decide. It's easy to do, but remember that if you say no to cookies, information about you, such as username and password and info about how you use our website, will not be stored. It may affect the functionality and experience of both our website and other websites. The website simply does not work properly without cookies.
