What is a cookie and what are cookies used for?
A cookie is a small text file that the website you are visiting stores on your mobile device or computer. All websites can send cookies to your browser if your browser settings allow this. Cookies are very common on the internet.
You can consent to usage of cookies, for example through your browser settings, but you can also refuse to allow cookies in your browser settings.
Two types of cookies – persistent and temporary/session cookies
There are two types of cookies: persistent and temporary/session cookies.
Persistent cookies are stored in a file for a longer time period, to enable tailoring of the website based on your wishes, choices and interests. They stay on your mobile device or computer until you choose to delete them manually. They are used for instance when something has been updated since your last visit to the website.
Session cookies are stored temporarily on your mobile device or computer, while you are visiting the website. They are erased when you close the page and are thus not stored permanently.
A cookie file is a so-called passive file and cannot spread malicious programs or computer viruses to your mobile device or computer.
How to delete cookies?
You can refuse to allow cookies by accessing your browser settings and deleting cookies from your hard drive. You can also make settings in the browser so that it notifies you when it receives a cookie. You then have the option to accept or reject the cookie. More information on this can be found on the About Cookies website.
If you choose not to allow cookies, this can mean that certain functions on Universefood.no’s website will not work in the same way as they would if you had accepted them.
