How do cookies work?

Cookies are small text files that are stored in your device’s browser. They show us the type of device with which you are using OP eServices and whether you have visited our websites earlier.

If you use a variety of browsers, they may have their own browser settings. If several persons use the same device and browser, the cookie choices made by a single user will also apply to other users, unless the cookies are deleted from the browser after use.

If you have only allowed necessary cookies, we will ask your consent again after six (6) months. Your other cookie settings will remain in force for 12 months.

If you remove cookies from the browser, we will ask your consent again the next time you visit our website.

What tools are we using and how long is the data retained?

We use both session and persistent cookies. Tools can set several cookies with different retention times. We indicate the maximum cookie retention time for each tool.

Session cookies exist only during a single session, or visit. They are deleted automatically when you close the browser. With session cookies, you can move from one page to another, log into the service and use different types of calculators and on-line forms, for instance.

Persistent cookies remain on your browser or device for a fixed period, also after the session, unless you delete them from the browser settings. We use persistent cookies to improve the user experience. With persistent cookies, the website identifies your device and remembers your settings, such as language choice, when you visit the website again.
