In general, when you visit a website, the site sends some small text files to your browser, which then stores them on your device’s storage unit (hard drive, flash drive or whatever is installed). These text files are called “cookies”. Some sites set many cookies, others only a few.
At Munk Productions (www.munkprod.dk) we set only a few cookies. Below you’ll find a description of what these cookies are, and what they are used for. Overall, we don’t collect information on you to use in advertising or building a profile on you. Our cookies are there to help the site function as smoothly as possible.
First off: Cookies cannot contain viruses or other malware which could harm your device.
As stated above, a cookie is a small text file sent by the website to your browser, which then stores the cookie on your device.
They can be divided into categories based on their purpose. A popular categorisation is:
- Functional: Cookies used to aid in website functionality, such as logging in, adding items to a shopping cart, keeping track of what to show or hide depending on your previous actions, etc.
- Analytical: Cookies used to analyse your usage of the website, i.e. which pages you visit, how you navigate the site, etc. This can be helpful to the site owner to improve the usability of the site.
- Advertising: Cookies which are often set by third party web sites to show advertisements, build a profile on you to pick relevant advertisements, etc.
All cookies are set to stay on your device for a specific amount of time, often called “expiration time” or “duration”. Unless you delete them manually they will stay in place for that time. Overall, two types exist: Persistent and Session. Persistent cookies stay on your device after you’ve left the website or even closed your browser, whereas Session cookies are deleted after your current visit.
Persistent cookies are often used to remember your preferences for the site, e.g. your selected language or individual display preferences, or for example whether you’ve accepted cookies or not. Advertising cookies may stay so another site you visit can see where you’ve been. Depending on the information you have given to sites you have visited, the combined information from the cookies and your personal info may be used to build a profile on you, which can be used by certain sites to sell to other sites and organisations.
Session cookies often contain login information to keep you logged in to the site, or they are used to (anonymously) identify you while visiting the site, so the site may remember actions you have taken that influence how forms and fields are shown.
It is possible to delete or block cookies. However, if you block cookies, you run the risk that the website is not functioning optimally and that there is content that you cannot access. See below for more details.
