3. Cookies and other technologies used in online services and applications

Kovagoalie.fi collects information about the user’s terminal using cookies and other similar techniques. In this way, information can be gathered on how and when network services are used, and thus services can be further developed more user-friendly.

A cookie is a file that is stored in the user’s browser. Cookies-based techniques, among other things, allow the user to choose to enter user IDs and passwords each time they wish. The cookie file contains anonymous identification information used in services and applications to identify browsers and monitor service usage. The information collected about the use of the Services is also used to produce targeted advertising or personalized content. Applications have a device-specific mobile identifier for the cookie.

Cookies may remain on the user’s machine until they are deleted. There are also session-specific cookies that expire at the end of a user visit (or session).

Cookies can be divided into different types according to their purpose:

  • Functional cookies enable visitor login, e-commerce functionality and up-to-date network traffic monitoring. These mandatory cookies ensure that the site functions as planned, and seek to identify and correct possible errors based on the information collected through them. These cookies also help ensure that the user can read the content of their order on the site.
  • Analytics and Product Development Cookies are used to develop the user experience of online services and to make the various functions smoother. For example, they can be used to track the number of visitors to different sites, speed, frequency of use, and new and returning visitors.
  • Cookies that are important to the effectiveness of advertising help to target the ads that interest them. Cookies are also used for reporting purposes to verify the reach of advertising through comparable metrics, such as impressions and clicks. Advertising can also be targeted to third parties such as advertisers and ad networks based on browser usage.
  • Social media cookies. The sites can use so-called community interfaces, which allow the user to, for example, distribute the content of their choice to social media services. Facebook, Twitter, Google, Instagram, WhatsApp, and other similar service providers may collect information in accordance with their respective terms of use at any given time.

Kovagoalie.fi uses JavaScript to detect the use of add-ons to prevent advertising in web browsers. It is also commonly used in the source code of webpages. The JavaScript code for ad blocking mimics the ad and confirms that it is displayed on the user’s device. No data is stored on users’ devices and no personal information is processed. If the user is using an anti-advertising program, they may be in contact with the advertising block and / or modify the content offered to him / her.

3.1 End-user empowerment

Visitors have access to the cookie settings when they first arrive at the site. After learning about the cookies set by the site, visitors can accept and modify the cookie settings. The user of the application is informed about the respective terms of use at login.

The settings for cookies are always browser-specific. The cookie settings must therefore be approved and edited for each browser used. The user can completely disable the use of cookies and mobile tags by denying the desired cookies in the browser settings and resetting the mobile ID from the terminal settings, but this can prevent the site and application from working as intended. The visitor can always modify their cookie preferences whenever they wish.

Updating privacy statement

As we develop our services and change our legislation, this Privacy Statement may also change in some respects. We recommend that you review the Privacy Statement at regular intervals.
