What do we use cookies for?

  • Giving you the same language each time, based on what you’ve selected
  • Making sure that you keep the link to oslobysykkel.no when you move between different sites, which is especially important if you’re going to purchase a subscription or gift certificate.

What does the law say?

The Norwegian Law on Electronic Communications has a separate cookie paragraph (§ 2-7b) primarily intended to safeguard us against spyware. One of the measures says that everyone who has a website must provide information about their (legal) use of cookies. We do that through this article.

It is also essential that those who visit oslobysykkel.no have approved the fact that we store cookies in your browser. The law defines this by saying that you approve cookies when you are informed about them, and if you have not turned off cookies (yup, we agree that it’s pretty corny).
