What are cookies?

Cookies consist of small text files. The text files contain data stored on the visitor’s computer.

Why does Rugvista use cookies?

The whole basic idea behind our website is to deliver as good an experience as possible for our visitors.

In order for us to be able to do that, we track how visitors click around and how to use the website. This means that we can later give suggestions for further reading in the specific subject or related areas.

It is of course possible to use our website without allowing us to store cookies. Then the experience will not be as personal and fantastic as it is meant to be.
