Third party cookies
Third party cookies are used to gather information in order to serve customised content to visitors, as well as for web statistics, for example. These types of cookies originate from providers other than those operating the website itself.
At UC.se, we use Google Analytics in order to evaluate the use of the website with the aim of utilising the information to enhance user experience. This cookie accumulates information on trends and patterns without identifying individual visitors. A unique configuration of cookies is used for every website, and visitors are not tracked across multiple sites.
On occasion, we may use third party cookies from other companies in order to conduct web surveys — and, in such cases, only to ensure the survey is displayed a certain number of times for each visitor and only during the period the survey is being carried out.
