Cookie Statement

1. Cookies statement
1.1. About cookies
Websites use smart and useful techniques to enhance user-friendliness and to make the site as interesting as possible for each visitor. One of the best known techniques involves cookies. Cookies can be used by website owners or third parties - like advertisers - who communicate through the website you visit.

Cookies are small text files that websites store on users’ computers. The information contained in cookies can also be used to track your surfing on different websites that use the same cookie.

Cookies are classified according to duration and who sets them.

We feel it is essential for you to be informed about the cookies that our website uses and for what purpose they are used. The purpose is threefold: we want to guarantee your privacy, the user friendliness, and the financing of our website as best as we can. The following explanation tells you more about the cookies used on and through our website and for what purposes.

2. How Ferronordic AB uses cookies
Ferronordic AB uses cookies to gather visitor statistics and to record information about your preferences as you navigate through the web sites. Our purpose of using cookies is to improve the use of the site for you as a visitor.

3. Cookies and their functionality
Different types of cookies are used for different purposes.
Below you will find a list of the most common type of cookies and for what they are used.

3.1. Session cookies
A session cookie is temporarily stored in your computer’s memory while you are surfing on a site, for example to keep a track of which language you have chosen. Session cookies are not stored on your computer for a long period of time, but always disappear when you shut down your web browser.

3.2. Persistent or tracker cookies
A persistent cookie saves a file on your computer for a long time; this kind of cookie has an expiry date. Persistent cookies help websites remember your information and settings when you visit them in the future. This result in faster and more convenient access since, for example, you don't have to login again.

When the expiry date has passed, the cookie is automatically deleted when you return to the website that created it.

3.3. First party cookies
These are set by the website itself (the same domain as in the browser’s address bar), and can only be read by that site. These cookies are commonly used to store information such as your preferences, for use when you re-visit the site.

3.4. Third party cookies
These are set by different domains from the one shown on the browser address bar that is by an organisation other than the website owner.

Cookies that, for example, are used to collect information for advertisements and custom content and also for web statistics may be ‘third-party cookies’.

As third-party cookies make it possible to generate more comprehensive surveys of user surfing habits, they are deemed to be more sensitive from the perspective of integrity; for this reason, most web browsers allow you to adjust your settings to not accept third-party cookies.

We use ScorecardResearch web tags to collect data such as new versus repeat visitors, timestamp, the URL, and the title of the web page. The ScorecardResearch tagging is not used to identify the user visiting a

page. Additionally, the data collected by ScorecardResearch is only used in an aggregated form. In other words, the reports that are created from this data will not say that Computer 1 went from Site A to Site B to Site C. Instead, the reports will always be based on an entire collection of different computers, meaning that the reports will contain information like “67% of the entire internet population went to Site A”, or “35% of individuals who went to Site A also went to Site B.”
