There are two types of cookies
The first type places a cookie for a longer time period on your device. It’s used, for example, in functions that decide what’s new since you last visited the site in question. The second type is called a session cookie. It’s placed temporarily on your device’s memory during your visit on a website and keeps track of things like your language settings throughout the session. Session cookies are removed when closing your browser.
The following cookies are used on our website
ASP.NET SessionID is a session cookie required for fundamental functions on the website and is placed automatically by The Swedish Heart Lung Foundation. It creates an identity code that keeps track of the user so that your settings are consistent throughout the session. This cookie is automatically removed when closing your browser.
ExternalID and hlf_identity are cookies that are used to store information about you as a user in between visits. These cookies are saved until you clear your browser of cookies. hlf_session is a cookie used in combination with hlf_identity to separate different browser sessions. This cookie is automatically removed when closing your browser.
Web analytics services
The Swedish Heart Lung Foundation uses Google Analytics from Google to track and analyze our website. Google Analytics uses the following cookies in order to understand how users use the website:
_utmb determines the duration and number of page views on the website. The cookie is saved for 30 minutes from when it was saved or updated.
_utmz keeps track of how the user found the website and is saved for six months.
_utma identifies unique users and is saved for two years.
_utmc has previously been used in combination with _utmb to determine the duration of a website visit. In the latest version of Google Analytics it no longer serves a purpose.
The information generated by these cookies (including IP-adresses) will be forwarded to and stored by Google. This information is used to evaluate website statistics. Google may also transfer this information to a third party if there is a legal requirement to do so, or if the third party processes the information on behalf of Google. Google will not connect IP-addresses to other data in Google possession. Google Analytics anonymizes the information received.
The Swedish Heart Lung Foundation uses Hotjar as a web analytics service. This service can register your clicks, mouse movements and how you scroll on the website. Hotjar also logs information on websites you visited, your location as well as what device, operation system and browser you use.
