What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website stores on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site.

  • First party cookies are cookies set by the website you’re visiting. Only that website can read them. In addition, a website might potentially use external services, which also set their own cookies, known as third-party cookies.

  • Persistent cookies are cookies saved on your computer and that are not deleted automatically when you quit your browser, unlike a session cookie, which is deleted when you quit your browser.

When you visit this website, you will be prompted to accept or refuse cookies.

The purpose is to enable the site to remember your preferences for a certain period of time.

That way, you don’t have to re-enter them when browsing around the site during the same visit.

Cookies can also be used to establish anonymised statistics about the browsing experience on our sites.

How do we use cookies?

This website mostly use “first-party cookies”. These are cookies set and controlled by the contractor of the study (Viegand Maagøe) using Wix.com for providing the website hosting and functionality. Most of the cookies are strictly necessary cookies.

However, to view and use some of our pages, you will have to accept cookies from external organisations ("third-party cookies").  

We use these external providers:

  • 123formbuilder providing the functionality of the registration form and the meeting registration form

  • Cookiepro for proving the functionality of the cookie management

These third-party services are outside of the control of the contractor. Providers may, at any time, change their terms of service, purpose and use of cookies, etc. however the website is scanned frequently for updating the cookie list provided in this page.

For det​ailed information about the strictly necessary cookies used on this website and for selecting optional functional cookies or to change your consent, please click on "Cookies Setting" in upper left corner on this page. You may also delete your browser cookies for this site; enter it again and you will automatically be prompted to accept or refuse cookies and enter the settings.

How can you manage cookies?

You can manage/delete cookies as you wish - for details, see aboutcookies.org.

Removing cookies from your device

You can delete all cookies that are already on your device by clearing the browsing history of your browser. Typically, it is possible to clear only cookies and other site data and not the the complete browsing history. This will remove all cookies from all websites you have visited.

Be aware though that you may also lose some saved information (e.g. saved login details, site preferences).

 

Managing site-specific cookies

For more detailed control over site-specific cookies, check the privacy and cookie settings in your preferred browser.

Blocking cookies

You can set most modern browsers to prevent any cookies being placed on your device, but you may then have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site/page. And some services and functionalities may not work properly at all (e.g. profile logging-in).
