Web analytics and cookies
Norwegian Government Security and Service Organisation (G.S.S.O.) collects data about website visitors. The purpose of using statistics is to improve and further develop our websites to be user-friendly. To analyse the data, we use Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager as analytics tools.
The statistics give us answers to questions such as:
- How many people visit different pages?
- How long does the visit last?
- Which websites do visitors come from?
- Which browsers do visitors use?
Cookies are small text files that a website can ask your browser to save on your computer. When you visit the same website again, the browser will submit the cookies along with your request for the page content. This enables the website to recognise a user who visited the page on a previous occasion.
It is entirely up to you if you want to save cookies on your computer, and if they are to be sent back to the website. Cookies are automatically deleted after a certain amount of time specified by the website.
