What are cookies?

A cookie is a small amount of data that usually has a unique stamp on it. This data is sent from a websites computer to your browser and stored there, on your hard drive, so that the site can recognize your computer.

There are two types of cookies, permanent and temporary (so-called session cookies). Permanent cookies are stored as a file on your computer for an extended period of time. Session cookies are temporarily placed on your computer when you visit a website, but disappear when you close the page, which means that they are not permanently stored on your computer. Most companies use cookies on their websites to improve usability and cookies cannot damage your files or increase the risk of viruses on your computer.

As a user you have the option to set whether you want cookies to be automatically saved in your browser, if you want to be asked every time a cookie wants to be saved or if you want no cookies to be saved. Cookies are used on many websites, not just on Håkanson United, to keep track of whether the browser has visited the site before and what choices have been made. Every visit to the site is checked if 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 site.
