Why does brottsoffermyndigheten.se use cookies?

• We use cookies to collect statistics with Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager in order to see how our visitors use the website. The statistics help us make the content of the website better.

• We use a tool called Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reports to analyse the website traffic. The Swedish Crime Victim Authority has set up Google Analytics in a way that anonymises the information sent to Google. This is done by Google Analytics truncating (deleting) the last digits in the visitors' IP addresses before they are sent to Google. You can use Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on if you do not want the tool to collect data about you.

• On some of the webpages of the website, it is possible to share links and send tips about the website via social media. To make sure that this feature works we use addthis. You can read more about how the data is used at Addthis Privacy Policy (the information is in English).

• At brottsoffermyndigheten.se, we use cookies to store your consent to having cookies stored. That means that you do not have to consent to cookies every time you visit the website if you have consented to having cookies stored on your computer on your first visit.
