Cookies on hurtigruten.com

Today, the vast majority of websites use cookies to enhance the user experience. A cookie is a text file that is added to your browser’s internal memory when you visit or interact with a website. With the new legal framework and new EU regulations on data protection, many are wondering what “cookies” are. Here you will find information about how we use cookies on the hurtigruten.com website.

Use of cookies

 “Cookies” are a standard technology that almost all websites use today. A cookie is a small text file that is added to your browser’s internal memory and allows us to keep track of what you add to your shopping cart and which items are displayed, as well as providing statistics that we use to make our web pages better for our users. Most modern browsers (Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera etc.) are set to accept cookies automatically, but you can choose to change settings so that cookies are not accepted. To change cookie settings, please see the 'Help' section of your browser or visit aboutcookies.org. Please note, if you do not accept cookies many websites will not function optimally.

Like most other websites, we collect information automatically and save it in log files on our servers. This is information such as which type of browser you use on our website, broadband providers (ISPs), operating systems, date and time of visit, as well as some data about navigation.

We use the information we collect to analyse trends so that we can make our web pages better for those visiting us online. Information will only be used internally and will not be forwarded to any third party and/or other persons outside Hurtigruten. We never store information that can identify you personally.
