There are two types of cookie:
- permanent cookies, which remain on a visitor’s computer for a certain, pre-determined duration,
- session cookies, which are stored temporarily in the computer memory during the period under which a visitor views the website. Session cookies disappear when the visitor closes the web browser.
On this website a session cookie (usually titled OJSSID) is used to store a session ID number on your computer. This will facilitate the login procedure. No personal information is stored in the cookie.
If you do not want cookies to be used, you can switch them off in the security settings of the web browser. It is also possible to set the security of the web browser such that the computer asks you each time a website wants to store a cookie on your computer. The web browser can also delete previously stored cookies: the help function for the web browser contains more information about this. If you have deactivated cookies you can still view the website and read the articles. However, if you want to log in and submit your work to one of our journals you have to accept cookies to be saved.
The Swedish Post and Telecom Authority is the supervisory authority in this field. It provides further information about cookies on its website, www.pts.se.
