Together with cookies we also use other techniques such as beacons and pixel tags, all jointly referred to as “cookies”. Such techniques enable third parties to place cookies on the Website and collect information about how visitors use the Website in order for us to optimize our marketing.
2) WHAT ARE COOKIES?
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device (computer, mobile phone etc.) with information when you visit the Website. There are temporary cookies and persistent cookies. Temporary cookies (also called session cookies) are saved on your device until you close the web browser. Persistent cookies are stored with an end date and when this date has passed the cookie is deleted. Cookies can be “first party” or “third party”. First party cookies are placed on the Website by Nordic Knots whereas third party cookies are placed on the Website by someone other than Nordic Knots, for example Facebook or Google.
Furthermore, cookies are usually segmented into four categories:
Necessary cookies – these cookies are essential for the function of the Website.
Preference cookies – these cookies enable the Website to save a visitor’s preferences in relation to e.g. language, currency or from where the user is visiting from.
Analytical cookies – these cookies are used to analyze how a visitor uses the Website, for example what parts of the Website it visits or what links it clicks, in order to improve the design and function of the Website.
Marketing cookies – these cookies are used to track a visitor’s use of the Website. The information is used for marketing purposes. For example, by knowing what items you have previously looked at we can refine our marketing in a way which we think would be more interesting for you.

Therefore, when you visit the Website from a device for the first time you will be asked to manage your cookie-preferences in our so-called cookie-banner.
