What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file that may be placed on your device (e.g. computer, smartphone or tablet) when you visit a website. Cookies are used to allow websites to function more efficiently and to collect information to the owner of a website. Read more about cookies at the Swedish Post and Telecom Authority’s website.
What types of cookies do we use?
There are three types of cookies on the website:
Session cookies, i.e. cookies which are temporarily saved only during your visit to our website. Such cookies are for example used to identify which language that you have chosen. Session cookies are deleted when you close your web browser.
Persistent cookies, i.e. cookies which save a file for an extended period on your device. Such cookies are for example used with functions which describe what information is new since you last visited the website. How long the cookie remains on your device will depend on the duration or “lifetime” of the specific cookie, as well as on your browser settings.
Third party cookies, i.e. cookies that belong to domains different from the one shown in the address bar. Third party cookies open up for potential tracking of the user’s browsing history.

Powertex and Ropetex uses the tool Google Analytics, including Google Tag Manager, to collect information about the use of the website. The purpose is to better understand our users' needs and to create better content for our website visitors. By saving Google Analytics cookies in your browser, we can see, for example, what kind of information you request or what features are important to you.
Google Analytics collects the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit the website. To protect your privacy further, we use so-called IP anonymization for data collection with Google Analytics. This means that the last digits of your IP number are masked, for example 193.188.156.xxx.
You can prevent Google Analytics from recognizing you on return visits to the website by disabling cookies on your browser.
