Today, the great majority of websites make use of “cookies” to enhance user experience. A cookie is a text file which is placed in your web browser’s internal memory when you visit or interact with a website.
Storing information in the user’s electronic communications equipment or gaining access to this is prohibited unless the user is advised of the information that is being processed, the purpose of such processing and who is processing the information, and has consented to this. The first point does not preclude technical storage of or access to information:
- exclusively for the purpose of transmitting information using an electronic communications network.
- which is necessary to deliver an information society service at the explicit request of the user.
“Cookies" are standard technology in common use on websites. A cookie is a small text file that is placed in your web browser's internal memory and makes it possible for us to store information to improve or enable user interaction and the like on our site. Most modern web browsers (Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera etc.) are set up to accept cookies automatically, but you can choose to change your settings so that cookies are not accepted. We would like to emphasize that this may mean the National Tourist Routes’ website will not function optimally.
Here is an overview of the cookies that we use on our site:
My trip list: We use this to maintain an overview of which tourist routes you have shown an interest in and saved to “My trip list”.
“ForceLocale”: We use this to find out which language you have selected so that we can display the information in the correct language.
Google Analytics cookies:
__utmz see where you came from (search engine, keyword, link etc.) when you land on our pages. We use Google Analytics both internally on our pages and also in banners and images. Therefore you may occasionally see two cookies called __utmz.
__utma keeps track of how many times you've been on our site, so we can see how many users are visiting us for the first time and how many people visit our site more often.
__utmb and __utmc keep track of how long you stay on our website when you visit it. These are deleted when you leave our site.
You have no tourist routes on your trip list. Select a tourist route from the menu “The 18 Tourist Routes” and add it to “My trip list” using the navigation buttons.
