There are four types of cookies:
A local cookie is a file that is saved permanently on your device until you actively choose to delete it. It stores previous visits and the browser that is being used, and it improves the website’s functionality.
A session cookie is saved temporarily on your device and is used to keep track of settings while you are visiting a website. It is deleted when you close your browser.
A statistics cookie is stored on your device so we can track the number of visitors to our websites. Data from statistics cookies is stored for up to 10 years.
We use conversion cookies to measure the effect of our advertisements by generating reports about what actions you took as a user after seeing our advertisements. The cookie is inserted in the web code on the website’s buy or registration pages. We can then follow your actions after you clicked on the advertisements, thus measuring the effect of our advertisements in Facebook, AdWords, LinkedIn, etc.
The information created from these cookies through your use of our websites is forwarded to and stored by Stockholmsmässan.
