Cookies and personal data

When you visit tillvaxtverket.se, some information is saved about what you do on the website.

Cookies are used so that, among other things, you can save personal settings on the website. Cookies are also used so that we can collect visitor statistics and analyse what needs to be changed on the website.

IP numbers and cookie IDs may be personal data, and you therefore have the right to know how we use the data and how you can restrict its use.

About cookies

Cookies are used on virtually all websites and can be necessary for a website to work properly. This makes it possible, among other things, to monitor which pages are visited and enables you to save personal settings for the website. Cookies can also be added when you provide data to
apply for vacancies or when you use sharing links (third-party cookies).

There are different kinds of cookies. All kinds are used on the Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth’s website:

  • A session cookie is stored temporarily in the computer’s memory while the visitor is  browsing the website. It disappears as soon as you close your browser.
  • A persistent cookie remains on the visitor’s computer until it is removed.
  • A first-party cookie comes from the website in question (tillvaxtverket.se) and places
    cookies in the visitor’s browser.
  • A third-party cookie comes from another website and places cookies in the visitor’s
    browser. You can change the setting in your browser so that it blocks only
    third-party cookies.

Visitor statistics

To understand how the website is used and provide base data for our improvement work, we use the statistical tool Google Analytics to collect statistics on every visit. This information includes, for example, data on cookie ID, IP number, browser and which pages are visited, and it is saved
for 26 months.

More specifically, we use cookies to identify whether or not you are a return visitor. We save the unique number that the cookie in your browser is given (a cookie ID). IP numbers are used to identify the geographical location of our visitors.

If you do not accept cookies

You can set your browser’s security settings so that you either do not receive any cookies at all or that you will be asked every time a website tries to place a cookie on your computer.

The browser can also delete previously stored cookies, see your browser’s Help pages for more information.
