e-Boks Cookie Policy

Updated 18 May 2018

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small data file containing information that a website saves on your computer to monitor your actions during your visit and to be able to recognize your computer the next time you visit. It is also used to improve user friendliness and to compile anonymized statistics. A cookie is not a program and does not contain virus.

Why does e-Boks use cookies?

e-Boks uses cookies for such purposes as gathering data on, a) sites you visit, b) when you visited, and c) sites you visited from. We also use cookies for user management and to optimize user experience (registration of standard settings).

The use of cookies allows us to recognize your computer on our website, and to gather information on behavioral patterns (navigation) on the site, the use of different functions, etc. Overall, the objective is to improve user experience on the site.

As such, the objective is to improve your personal experience of our services. The use of cookies is required for our services to be able to work, and you should therefore be aware that you cannot log on to e-boks.dk if you deactivate cookies.

All personal information collected via cookies is processed according to e-Boks’ privacy policy located here.

Can I be warned about cookies before I visit a website?

You can set your browser to either a) warn you, b) ask for your acceptance of cookies, c) automatically approve cookies, or d) reject cookies. You can also limit acceptance of cookies to servers/websites you have visited previously. All browsers contain functions that make selective deletion of cookies possible. It is not possible to log on to e-Boks if you have set your browser to reject cookies.

What types of cookies are there?

In general, there are two types of cookies, “HTLM cookies” and “Flash cookies”. HTML cookies are typically run by a browser, whilst Flash cookies are run by a program. A website can therefore contain both types. Cookies can generally be broken down into these categories:

  1. Session cookie: Session cookies are set up by the website and used to recognize you when you navigate the site, and for example to remember if you are logged on. They are automatically deleted when you close your browser.
  2. Session cookie (3rd party): Session cookies set up by a third party website are used to recognize you when you navigate the site, and for example to remember if you are logged on. They are automatically deleted when you close your browser.
  3. Persistent cookie: Persistent cookies are set up by the website itself. They are saved on the user's device and expire on a given date or after a given period.
  4. Persistent cookie (3rd party): Persistent cookies are set up by a third party website to which the website is linked to. They are saved on the user's device and expire on a given date or after a given period.

How can you delete cookies?

If you do not want cookies, you can always delete them, but still navigate those parts of e-Boks that do not require a logon. You cannot use the closed part of e-Boks without your browser accepting cookies, but you can of course delete your cookies after each visit.
