What Are Cookies 

Cookies are small pieces of text sent by your web browser by a website you visit. A cookie file is stored in your web browser and allows the Service or a third-­party to recognize you and make your next visit easier and the Service more useful to you. Cookies can be “persistent” or “session” cookies.

Types Of Cookies

Session cookies are specific to a particular visit and carry information as you view different pages so you do not have to re-enter information every time you change pages or attempt to checkout. Session cookies expire and delete themselves automatically in a short period of time like after you leave the site or when you close your web browser.

However, for cookies that are useful but not strictly necessary we will always ask for your consent before placing them. We gather consent in accordance with the GDPR in cases where cookies utilize personal data. In other cases, consent is gathered in accordance with the Norwegian Law For Electronic Communication. 

Persistent cookies remember certain information about your preferences for viewing the site, and allow Us to recognize you each time you return. Persistent cookies are stored on your browser cache or mobile device until you choose to delete them, and otherwise typically delete themselves at expiration.

These cookies are shown below.
