Web analysis and statistics

We at Skane.se use cookies to compile statistics about visits to our website in order to improve our site for you and our other visitors. The Google Analytics analysis tool generates both types of cookies. 

The information that is created by these cookies when you use our website (including your IP address) will be forwarded to, and stored by, Google on servers in the United States. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law, or in those cases in which a third party processes the information on behalf of Google. 

We have configured the settings for Google Analytics so that this tool renders anonymous any information sent to Google . This is done by Google Analytics truncating (removing the last digits of) the visitors’ IP addresses before the information is stored by Google. 

The following cookies are placed by Skane.se:

_utma, which is used to identify unique visitors, and is saved for two years, _utmb, which is used to determine the length and number of pages shown on the site, and is saved for 30 minutes after it is created or updated last, _utmc, which is used together with _utmb in order to determine whether a new visit is taking place on the website (after 30 minutes of inactivity, activity on the website is counted as a new visit). This is deleted when the browser is closed, _utmz is used to keep track of how the visitor found the website, and will be saved for six months, and _ga and _gat are persistent cookies that are used to map the behaviour of the users.
