Cookie Policy

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a data file, that temporarily is stored on your hard drive. This is used so the website can recognize your computer and “remember” your settings if you return to our website.

A cookie is not able to spread any computer virus or any other malware on to your computer. Most often, a cookie is used to analyze the behavior on a website, so it is possible to organize relevant information and improve customer experience. Cookies can be necessary for being able to provide a service.

As a default, cookies are automatically deleted from the browser, once the current browser window is closed. This is called a session cookie. However, it is possible to set the expiry of a cookie for an arbitrary length of time after you leave the website. That is called a persistent cookie and will typically be stored to your hard drive until it expires, or you delete the cookie.

Furthermore, you normally differentiate between first-party cookies and third-party cookies. A first-party cookie is dealt with by the owner of the domain of the page you visit. A third-party cookie, also known as tracking cookie, is a cookie set by (and on) a third party, that tracks and reports information and traffic on the site, you are visiting. This type of third-party cookie is for example set by the web analytics service, Google Analytics.

First-party cookies
Primarily, we use cookies to analyze and optimize your experience, while visiting our website. The use of this kind of cookies will not compromise your safety.

Third-party cookies – Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics to analyze how the visitor uses our website. Cookies collect data about traffic, however, your IP-address will be anonymous. These non-personally identifiable data will be stored in Google’s servers in the USA. Through Google Analytics we are able to extract reports about the activities on our website. In a few cases, Google Analytics can pass on information to third-party if required by the authorities. Google Analytics sets two types of cookies:

A persistent cookie gives information regarding returning visitors, what entry the visitor is using, what type of search engine is used etc.. A persistent cookie is stored on your hard drive until it expires, or you manually delete it from your hard drive.

A session cookie is used to give information regarding when and for how long the user is on the website. Session cookies expire after each session, meaning that whenever you close your browser or window after surfing on a specific website the session cookie is deleted from your hard drive.

How to reject the use of cookies

It is possible to reject the use of cookies on your computer by changing your settings in your browser. However, be aware that you may not be able to use all the website’s features if cookies are disabled.

Because the cookie is located with you as a client, you will always be able to see, change and delete these cookies. We hope you will allow the use of cookies on your hard drive, since it will help us optimize and improve our website.

In case you do not wish to receive a cookie from plasticchange.org or plasticchange.dk you can in most recent browsers select advanced cookie-settings in your Internet-settings and add this domain to the list of sites you want to block cookies from. Here you can also delete individual cookies or all cookies that your browser has saved.

If you do not want Google Analytics to register and track your visit, you can use the Google Opt-Out Browser Add-on. Be aware that your visit to other websites who also use Google Analytics will also be blocked if you install this browser plugin.
