What are cookies? What are they used for?

A cookie is a small text file that stores information about your surfing and that is saved on your computer. This information is used to adapt the page based on how you use it, but also so that we at Åland Post can improve our website and make it more user-friendly.

We use two different types of cookies: session cookies and persistent cookies. Persistent cookies are saved on your computer for a defined period of time. Session cookies are stored in your computer’s memory while you are visiting a web page and are removed when you close your browser.
