What different types of cookies are there?
A cookie can either be classified by its lifespan or by the domain to which it belongs. By lifespan, a cookie is either a:
- session cookie which is erased when you close your browser or
- persistent cookie which remains on your computer/device for a pre-defined period of time.
Session cookies enable us to keep track of your movement from page to page on our website so you don't get asked for the same information you've already given to the site. Cookies allow you to proceed through many pages of our website quickly and easily without having to authenticate or reprocess each new area you visit. For example, without session cookies you would not be able to book a room using our website since every new page would not be able to recognize your past activities on prior pages.
A persistent cookie enables us to remember you on subsequent visits, speeding up or enhancing your experience of our services or functions offered.
As for the domain to which a cookie belongs, there are either:
- first-party cookies which are set by us as the owner of the visited website (in this case https://www.operakallaren.se) or
- third-party cookies which may be set by another website.
