These cookies are used by our web site to know whether the visitor has approved of our use of different cookies or not, so that the visitor doesn't have to answer this question, every single visit of the site.

New Relic

JSESSIONID (is stored temporarily during the visit, for as long as the web browser is kept open)

This cookie is used to store a session ID for the tool New Relic, which our developers use to monitor that our web sites are running as they should, primarily when it comes to performance, and so that they can search for causes of errors when they don't.

SiteImprove

These cookies are set when a page is loaded, on all pages of our web site.

nmstat (1000 days)

This cookie is used to collect statistics about our visitors' usage of the web site, for example, when a visitor last visited the web site.

This information is then used to improve on the visitors' usefulness and experience of the web site. This cookie contains a randomly generated ID which is used to identify the web browser, when a visitor reads a page. The cookie contains no personal information and is only used for web analysis. 

It is also used to track the sequence of pages a visitor browses during a visit. This information can then be used to simplify our visitors' navigation and to improve the possibilities to more quickly and easily find information.

AWSELBCORS (is stored temporarily during the visit, for as long as the web browser is kept open)

The cookie AWSELBCORS secures that all page views for the same visit are sent to the same end point. This makes it possible to discern in what order a visitor browses the pages of the web site, which is necessary, to be able to trace behaviours and navigation paths which our visitors frequently use.

These cookies are sent when a visitor starts an embedded or linked YouTube clip

ReadSpeaker

Our web site has an integrated screen reader, ReadSpeaker, which can read the contents of the pages. It sets two cookies.

_rspkrLoadCore (is stored temporarily during the visit, for as long as the web browser is kept open)

_rspkrLoadCore is set when a visitor starts ReadSpeaker and is used to know if the visitor has activated ReadSpeaker on a page. This makes it possible for ReadSpeaker to continue playing automatically on other pages which the visitor continues to, so that the visitor doesn't have to start ReadSpeaker on every single page. 

ReadSpeakerSettings (4 days)

This cookie is set when a visitor changes the settings of ReadSpeaker, for example, volume and reading velocity. This makes it possible for ReadSpeaker to continue reading content with maintained volume and reading velocity, on pages which the visitor continues to, so that the visitor won't have to change volume and reading velocity on every single page.

 

If you do not agree to using our cookies, then you can either change your cookie settings for our site using the privacy settings at the bottom of each page, or change your security settings in your own web browser. You will then be losing some functionality, like YouTube video clips.

It is commonly possible to accept cookies from some web sites while declining them from others. How you change these settings depends on what web browser you are using. In the settings of your web browser, you can also delete old cookies.
