How does it work?
A cookie is a small text file that contains information that is sent between your web browser and our web servers. An example of what it can contain is an id number that makes us able to see what pages you visit and if something went wrong with your visit.
Sometimes we might use third-party cookies and/or files from other companies to create functionality. An example is the social share buttons that are present on most pages.
Analysis tool for web statistics
Iffs uses Google Analytics to track visitor statistics. The purpose of this is to use the information to create a better website. Information that is created by the cookies used by Google analytics (including our IP address) is forwarded to and stored by Google's servers in USA up until the summer of 2023. After that the information will be stored by Google's servers in EU. Google might also share this information to a thrid-party if required by law, or the cases when Google uses third-party to analyze data.
Google will not connect data collected with other data that Google collects outside of our website. We have made settings to Google analytics to anonymize data before it is sent to Googles servers. This is made by truncating the last digits of your IP address.
