Web analytics and cookies:

As an important part of the work of creating an easy-to-use website, we look at the user pattern of those who visit the site. We use Google Analytics and Hotjar analytics tool when processing information.

Google Analytics og Hotjar use  (cookies) which register users’ IP addresses and provide information on the individual movements online. Examples of what the statistics give us answers to are; how many people visit different pages, how long the visit lasts, which websites users come from and which browsers are used. Hotjar enables us to build and maintain our service with user feedback.

None of the cookies allow us to link information about your use of the website to you as an individual. Data related to cookies is automatically deleted 14 months after registration. You can manage the use of cookies yourself.

The information collected by Google Analytics is stored on Google’s servers in the United States. Information received is subject to Google’s Privacy Policy.

An IP address is defined as personal data because it can be traced back to a specific hardware and thus to an individual. The user’s IP address anonymises before the information is stored and processed by Google. The anonymized IP address can then not be used to identify the individual user.
