Cookies on the website

Our cookies

On the information pages of this website, a temporary cookie is used, also known as a session cookie (called JSESSIONID). While you are on a certain website, the session cookie is temporarily stored in the memory of your computer. Session cookies disappear when you close your browser. We therefore do not store any personal data via cookies.

When you are using the Listen function, no cookies are stored, unless you choose to customise your settings. In that case, a number of cookies will be stored, depending on the settings. These cookies are called ReadSpeakerHL, ReadspeakerHLicon and ReadSpeakerHLspeed.

We sometimes have surveys that open in a separate window. So that you do not have to answer these questions more than once, these pages have a cookie (calledsurveyPopUp). This will be stored on your computer for a year.

The pages If you have come to Sweden because of family ties and are treated badly and Help for those who are living with domestic violence have panic buttons, which will direct you to Google. The purpose of this button is for you to be able to quickly hide the fact that you have been on any of these pages. In order to protect you further, there is a cookie which makes it impossible to go back from the Google start page to the previous page. If you use the “Back” button, you will instead be sent to the Swedish Migration Agency start page.
