Cookies and personal data
A cookie is a small amount of data that usually is labeled with an ID unique to you and your computer. The data is sent from a website to your browser and then stored on your hard drive, so that the website can recognize your computer. All websites can send cookies to your browser if your browser settings allow it. In order not to misuse this information, websites can only read information from cookies stored by themselves and not any cookies stored on other websites.
There are two types of cookies, necessary and functional.
Necessary cookies are temporarily stored on your computer and are needed for the website to work. They disappear when you close the browser. You can not take them out of use.
As a user, you choose in your settings if you want cookies to be stored automatically in your browser, if you want to be asked every time a cookie wants to be stored or if you want no cookies at all to be stored. Cookies are used on many websites, not just the regeringen.ax, to keep track of whether the browser has visited the website before and if so, what choices were made. At each visit to the website, a check is made as to whether cookies are stored in the browser or not. If there are no stored cookies from the website, the browser saves the cookies that are on the website.
