What are cookies and local data storage?
When you visit our websites, various types of data are stored locally on your device via your web browser. This locally stored data can be used to adapt content and functionality, thereby improving your experience while visiting the website.
The most common form of local data storage is cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device (computer, mobile phone or tablet). These files allow us to recognise your browser.
In addition to cookies, we also use similar techniques such as pixel tags, a technique for recognising cookies and identifiers and making it easier for third parties to place cookies on your device. Both RISE and third parties may store data locally on your device whenever you use our services.
This is how RISE uses locally stored data
RISE, our subcontractors (e.g. suppliers of analytical tools) and third parties (e.g. social media providers and their suppliers) store data locally on your device.
We use locally stored data to:
- Deliver and adapt content to your device and the browser you are using.
- Save your personal settings, for example your selected language.
- Improve ri.se and ensure that everything works as well as possible.
- Reach you with marketing and personalised information via other channels.
- Measure and analyse traffic and user behaviour.
How can you remove cookies and locally stored data?
You will normally find an overview of stored cookies in your browser settings. Settings also allow you to remove unwanted cookies, choose whether to accept the storage of cookies from the websites you visit or from third parties connected to them, and whether you want to be notified every time a cookie is saved. More information about cookies and how you can manage them is available from the Swedish Post and Telecom Authority (PTS) website.
