This cookie policy (the “Cookie Policy”) applies to Absolut Art’s use of cookies on our website (the “Site”). This Cookie Policy describes what kind of cookies we use on the Site, the purpose of each cookie, how long we store them and how you can block or delete cookies.

With the exception of cookies which are necessary for the Site to function properly, we will only use cookies that you have agreed to by clicking “Yes, I accept the use of cookies on this website”.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that may be placed on your device (e.g. computer, smartphone or tablet) when you visit a website. A cookie will usually contain the name of the website from which the cookie originated, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e. how long it will remain on your device), and a value, which is usually a randomly generated number.

Cookies are used to allow websites to function more efficiently, but also to send information to the owner of a website. Cookies also make it possible to separate different users from each other, which can give each user a more personalised and positive experience of the website.

What types of cookies does Absolut Art use?

There are two types of cookies on the Site

  • Persistent cookies, i.e. cookies which saves a file for an extended period on your device. Such cookies are for example used with functions which describe what information is new since you last visited the Site. How long the cookie remains on your device will depend on the duration or “lifetime” of the specific cookie, as well as on your browser settings.
  • Third party cookies, i.e. cookies that belong to domains different from the one shown in the address bar. Third party cookies open up for potential tracking of the user’s browsing history.

The table below sets out the specific cookies that are used on our Site, the purpose of each cookie, and whether any information comes from or will be transferred to a third party. The table also gives information on whether the cookie is a persistent cookie, a session cookie or a third party cookie. In addition, the table sets out the lifetime of each cookie that will be stored on your device.
