About Cookies

What are cookies?

Depend Cosmetic uses cookies on its websites. A cookie is a small data file with text that is saved in your web browser. There are two different types of cookies, permanent and temporary (“session cookies”). Permanent cookies are stored as a file on your computer or mobile for a certain period of time until you, or the server that sent them, deletes them. Session cookies are stored temporarily and are deleted when you close your web browser.

How we use cookies

We use cookies to be able to provide you, as a visitor to our sites, with better service. Some cookies are used to collect statistics about the number of visitors to the websites, while others are used to gather information about which operating system, web browser and browser version visitors are using, how our websites are used and how we can improve them, as well as which pages are popular or less popular, etc. This information enables us to develop and optimise our websites.

Some of the functions on www.depend.se, for example the Wishlist, use something called a “session ID”. To do this, our server sends a session cookie with a unique ID number to your computer each time you visit one of these pages.

Session cookies are used for as long as you remain active on the website. Without these, you would not be able to go back into the shopping basket, for example, but would have to fill in all your details again each time. A session cookie is only saved temporarily in your computer’s internal memory and is deleted automatically when you close your web browser.

If you do not want cookies to be used

A common misconception about cookies is that they are some sort of virus and that websites can use cookies to obtain personal information from a computer or that cookies are used to send you junk mail. This is simply not true; cookies are just data.

Most web browsers are set to allow cookies to be stored. If you do not want to allow cookies, you can either set your web browser to alert you whenever a website wants to store a cookie on your computer or block cookies from being stored altogether. Information on how to do this can be found in your browser’s help function. If you choose to block cookies, the Depend Cosmetic website will not function as well as you, as a user, may expect.
