1. What is a cookie?
Cookies are used today in connection with almost all websites and, in many cases, they are necessary to provide services on the website.
A cookie is a small text file that is saved on the user's IT device (PC, tablet, smartphone, etc.) so that the device can be recognised. Cookies can be used, among other things, to keep statistics on the ways in which visitors use the website, and to optimise the site's contents. A cookie is a passive file and can therefore not be used to collect data from the user's computer or spread computer viruses or other harmful programs. Some cookies are installed by parties (or "third parties") other than the owner of the website that appears in the address bar (the URL) of the browser. Such cookies may feature ordinary content, but also analytic tools or embedded comment fields. This means that cookies are saved from parties other than the one who owns the website.
Some cookies are only saved on the user's IT equipment for as long as the user has their browser open (session cookies). Other cookies are saved for longer periods of time (persistent cookies). When the user returns to a website, session cookies will be re-installed, while persistent cookies are typically refreshed.
3. Cookies on the website for the Bitten & Mads Clausen's Foundation
We use the following types of cookies on the Bitten & Mads Clausen's Foundation website:
Bmcfond.dk never saves data that can identify you personally without your consent, and this type of data is never passed on to third parties.
These cookies originate from a third party, such as a web analytics program like Google Analytics, which analyses the ways in which visitors use our website. The data collected by the cookie regarding your use (which includes traffic data and your IP address) is sent to and saved on Google's servers in the United States.
4. How long are cookies stored?
A cookie's lifetime can vary. Some disappear when you close the browser, while others can remain in place for years. Cookies typically "live" for up to two years, but the lifetime is most often extended following each visit to the website. In other words, if you visit a website again after six months, the cookie's lifetime is extended by two years from the date on which you revisit the site.
You can delete cookies from your computer at any time.
5. How do I remove/prevent cookies?
The way in which you delete or avoid cookies installed on your IT equipment depends on your browser. If you use a PC, cookies can be deleted by using the shortcut keys [CTRL]+[SHIFT]+[Delete}. If that doesn't work, or if you own a Mac, click on the link below for the browser you use.
6. Why are we providing information about cookies?
All Danish websites are obligated to provide users with information about which cookies are installed on the user's IT equipment. The information must be in accordance with the "Executive Order on Information and Consent Required in Case of Storing and Accessing Information in End-User Terminal Equipment" (the "Cookie Order" for short).
