Privacy and cookies
When you visit our website, your browser will download cookies. These are small text files that are exchanged between your device and this website and are used to make the website work as well as possible. Below you will find an overview of which cookies are used.
HTTPS and secure transmission
Our website is encrypted with HTTPS. If you want to make sure that a page is encrypted, the address bar at the top of the browser will show a padlock and/or read “https” instead of just “http” in front of the address.
The purpose of encryption is to ensure secure data communication between the server (the website) and the client (your computer). This includes a digital certificate to prove that the website and its sender are genuine.
Cookies on the website
Statistical cookies help the website owner understand how visitors interact with the website by collecting and reporting information.

We have added the option to forward articles by email and share articles on social media. Email addresses used to forward articles are not logged. Further handling of data that is shared in social media is regulated by your agreement with the relevant online community.
Statistics and log
When you read our website, information will be stored in statistics and log files.
The system does NOT store “user agent” or IP address but stores which page the visitor has visited in a raw data table. This information is then used to generate statistics for the number of page views per object (menu item, article, file), per host and per search term. All data in the raw data table is deleted after 2 days, and the remaining statistics then contain only summarized data that cannot be used to identify each individual user.
We also do not store “user agent” or IP address in the web server’s logs, but can store which pages have been visited. These logs are used exclusively for troubleshooting and security work and no data is extracted or used from these logs. The logs are deleted after a given interval (normally 4 weeks). Only administrators of the web server (operations) have access to these.
