Barn i skolan cookie policy

When you visit or use this website, a "cookie" will be created. Barn i skolan may use it to obtain statistics that help it optimize your browsing on its sites. Below you will find our cookie policy.

In case of disagreement with one or more of the following elements, you have the option of disabling cookies. But by continuing to visit our sites without changing settings, you consent to our use of cookies.

What is a cookie ?

During any visit to our websites, the pages you are viewing, together with what is called a cookie, are downloaded to your computer. Most, if not all, sites do the same because cookies allow the website publisher to obtain useful information, such as whether the computer (and probably its user) has visited the site before. This is done on a subsequent visit, by locating and verifying the cookie left behind at the previous visit.

So what is a cookie? When you visit a website, your computer automatically receives a cookie. This is a text file that allows our server to identify your computer. A cookie alone does not allow the user to be personally identified, but only their computer. This is what many sites do when a user visits, so they can track traffic flows. Cookies only remember the parts of the site that have been consulted by the computer in question, as well as their consultation duration. Users have the option of setting their computer to accept all cookies, or to be notified when a cookie is sent, or to never accept cookies, although this prevents them from benefiting from certain personalized services. See the information that came with your browser software to find out how to do this. Even if you have not configured your computer to refuse cookies, you can consult our sites anonymously until you register your information with Barn i skolan.

• avoid lengthy registrations/customizations on each visit;

• post promotions, messages and appeals on other websites you visit;

• improve and update our websites.

How do we collect and analyze cookies?

Barn i skolan does not collect and analyze data to create cookies directly; we use a specialized service provider who collects information about your preferences from your visits to our websites and analyzes your preferences using cookies already stored in your browser.

We obtain this information by allowing Google Analytics to analyze traffic on our websites by means of “Google advertising cookies”. These are a series of cookies already stored in your browser that collect data from your browsing preferences. You can see the different types of cookies used by Google and get more information about these categories by consulting the Google Privacy Policy and Terms of Service.

We may at any time be required to change specialist service providers without giving you notice. We will then update this page accordingly.

What if you don't want us to use your cookies?
