You are not required to approve our use of strictly necessary cookies since they are required in order for us to provide the website.
What types of cookies do we use?
There are three types of cookies on the website:
- Session cookies, i.e. cookies which are temporarily saved only during your visit to our website. Such cookies are for example used to identify which language that you have chosen. Session cookies are deleted when you close your web browser.
- Persistent cookies, i.e. cookies which save a file for an extended period on your device. Such cookies are for example used with functions which describe what information is new since you last visited the website. How long the cookie remains on your device will depend on the duration or "lifetime" of the specific cookie, as well as on your browser settings.
- Third party cookies, i.e. cookies that belong to domains different from the one shown in the address bar. Third party cookies open up for potential tracking of the user's browsing history.
AxFlow uses the tool Google Analytics, including Google Tag Manager, to collect information about the use of the website. The purpose is to better understand our users' needs and to create better content for our website visitors. By saving Google Analytics cookies in your browser, we can see, for example, what kind of information you request or what features are important to you.
Google Analytics collects the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit the website. To protect your privacy further, we use so-called IP anonymization for data collection with Google Analytics. This means that the last digits of your IP number are masked, for example 193.188.156.xxx.
AxFlow does not combine the information collected through the use of Google Analytics with other PII (personally identifiable information).
You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to the website by disabling cookies on your browser.
If you don't want cookies to be stored on your computer, you can make settings in your browser to prevent this. You can also make settings so you get a warning every time a website wants to store a cookie on your computer.
If you don't want your visits on the AxFlow website to appear in Google Analytics statistics, you can use a so-called opt-out extension to your browser.
