Use of cookies

So-called cookies* are used on the website to count visits to the website and to identify recurring users.

It is VR's policy to minimise the use of cookies. Users of the website can set their browsers so that they notify about cookies or reject them altogether.

VR uses Google Analytics for web measurements. A few items are collected on each visit to the site, e.g. time and date, search words, originating website, and type of browser and operating system. This information can be used for improving and developing the website, e.g. information on the material accessed most often and more. No further information is collected, and we make no effort linking such information to other personally identifiable information.

Siteimprove's service is used on the website in a similar way to Google Analytics, for example to count visits and to find broken links that users click on.

* cookies - files that are placed on the computer of the user visiting the website in question and store information about the visit.
