Privacy and the handling of your personal data have always been prioritised in everything we do at ApoEx. We therefore would like to be clear about how and why we work with cookies and other similar technologies on our websites.
You can also personally determine whether or not you want to allow our websites to place cookies on your computer. You can modify your selections at any time. Read our entire Policy for full information about which cookies we use and how to manage your selections.
Your consent is required
What are cookies?
The short answer is that a cookie is a small text file that is saved in your web browser when connecting to a website. Some of these cookies are very basic and help us to help you easily navigate our websites.
When we refer to ‘cookies’ in this Policy, this also encompasses other similar technologies and tools that retrieve and store information in your web browser and also, in some cases, forward such information to a third party in a manner similar to cookies. Pixels, local storage, session storage and fingerprinting may be mentioned as examples.
The websites will ‘remember’ and ‘recognise’ you. This can be done by cookies being placed in three different ways:
- For the session, i.e., until you close the window in your web browser.
- Time-limited, i.e., the cookie has a predefined lifespan. This time may vary from cookie to cookie.
- Indefinitely, i.e., the information will remain until you personally decide to remove it. This applies to local storage.
- You can always go into your web browser and personally delete cookies already placed there.
What is meant by ‘third-party cookies’?
We use third-party cookies on our websites. Third-party cookies are placed by someone other than the party responsible for the website, so in this instance by a company other than ApoEx.
ApoEx uses external platforms for its digital communications; these include, among others, Facebook, Google Ads and Customer.io. These platforms use both first- and third-party cookies as well as similar technologies to advertise and follow up the results of their advertising.
Cookies on our websites and what they are used for
We have identified three different categories of cookies to give you better control over which cookies are used on the websites and thereby more easily determine how cookies may be used when you visit our websites. These categories are defined on the basis of the purposes for which the cookies are used.
We have identified the following three categories of cookie. All of the categories include cookies whereby data is shared with a third party.
These cookies are essential, as their name suggests, and are used to enable the correct, safe and secure functioning of our website; therefore they cannot be disabled. These include, for example, cookies that identify you when you log in and that are aware of where you are in the purchasing process.
Analysis & function
These cookies provide us with information about how our websites are being used and enable us to improve user experience. For example, they may help us to notice a function that is not working correctly so that we can fix it. These also include functions that mean that we remember your settings, such as language selection, addresses, etc., so that you do not have to enter these every time you visit one of our websites.
These cookies help us and our cooperating partners to target you with customised and relevant information and marketing based on your surfing behaviour with us, even when you later visit other websites. Information collected for these purposes may also be combined with your customer and traffic data that we possess if you have consented to us using your traffic data for marketing and have not objected to your customer data being used for marketing purposes.
It is easy to change your settings for cookies at a later date. If you are logged into the order portal, you will find cookies under Ändra inställningar [Change settings] in the main menu. If you are logged out, you will find this information in the footer when you visit care.apoex.se. We save your selections for twelve months. We will then ask you again. Please note that some cookies have a lifespan of more than twelve months. You may therefore need to change the settings in your web browser and manually delete all cookies.
More information about how to disable cookies can be found in the instructions for your web browser.
If you have chosen to turn on the Do Not Track function in your web browser, we will not automatically place cookies for marketing on your device. You make other selections in your cookie settings.
What happens if you block cookies?
Blocking cookies may therefore mean that the websites’ services do not function as they should. This also means that your experience will be impaired and you may need to enter the same settings and selections each time you visit our websites. You may also be shown material that quite simply is not relevant to you.
