A cookie is a small text file that is sent from our web server and stored in your browser. The data that is stored in the file could be data about the most recently visited webpage or a navigation choice that you have made.
You can delete cookies that are on your hard drive at any time although this could mean that your personal settings disappear. You can also change the browser settings so that it does not permit cookies to be saved on your hard disk. However, this reduces the functionality of certain websites and could mean that some of the content and certain functions are not available.
DB Schenker uses Google Analytics to build up a picture of how visitors use the website. Google registers visitor statistics and expanded data from Google's network, such as gender, age and interests. Analytics never stores any form of personal data and its purpose is to detect general patterns in the use of web-based services.
Google Analytics creates the following cookies:
- __utma is a persistent (permanent) cookie that is used to distinguish users and sessions/visits. It is updated each time a website is visited and expires two years after it has been set or updated.
- __utmb is a session cookie that is used to determine new sessions/visits. It is updated each time a site is visited and expires 30 minutes after it has been set or updated.
- __utmc is a session cookie that is used with "__utmb" to determine whether a new visit has been made to the website (use after 30 minutes of inactivity is counted as a new visit). It expires when the web browser is closed.
- __utmt is a session cookie that is used to determine the website speed. It expires 10 minutes after it has been set.
- __utmz is persistent cookie that is used to determine traffic sources and navigation on the website (for example which search engine is used to reach skatteverket.se). It expires six months after it has been set or updated.
The data that is stored in these cookies, including your computer's IP address, is sent to Google's servers. Google can transfer the data to third parties if required by law or in those cases where a third party processes the data on behalf of Google.
