Policies on the processing of personal data when using cookies
Cookies used by a specific product/website
The Website may store both Bisnode's own cookies (including so-called "non-anonymous" cookies, from which the user's identity is evident) and "third-party" cookies (storing information on a site other than the one visited).

What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are downloaded to your computer, mobile phone or other device when you visit the Website. The cookie is stored on your computer or mobile device.

Cookie retention time
Cookies can be stored on a user's computer or other end device for various lengths of time. Some cookies are limited by the duration of the session (so-called session or "session cookies"). This means that they exist only as long as the browser is running and are automatically deleted when the browser is closed. Other cookies are persistent (so-called "persistent cookies"). These cookies remain in the browser even after its termination until a specified date, or until they are manually deleted by the user. According to these cookies, the user's computer or other end device can be identified when the browser is restarted and the Internet is browsed.
The main purpose is to reliably measure the number of visitors to the Website and the duration of individual visits, remember user preferences and help analyze the performance of the website. For this purpose, we use various statistical-analytical measuring programs on the web server.
