Updated on 7 May 2018

When you visit Orion's online services, your device receives one or more cookies which are sent from our online service to your browser.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file saved on the users's device by the browser. Cookies do not harm your files or your device in any way. Cookies are divided into persistent cookies and session cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your device for a pre-defined period of time, after which they are erased, either automatically or when you delete cookies from your browser. Session cookies remain on your device only for the duration of your visit to our online services and are deleted when you close the browser.

Why and how do we use cookies?

We use cookies to improve user experience and to track the usage of our online services as well as to build better services. With cookies we can, for example, remember the language settings you choose in our online services so that you don't have to choose them again every time you visit our online services. In other words, we can improve the content and functionality of our online services and fix any errors in these services. We also use cookies in our marketing to target specific audiences. This enables us to provide you with content that interests you the most. Additionally, we measure the appeal of our services and sites.

Data collected with cookies include the IP address, the type of browser and device, and the browsing country, among other things. Cookie data will not, however, enable us to identify you, and we do not pair cookie data with any personal data that is possibly collected in a different context. 

How can I prevent the use of cookies or delete cookies?

Most browsers allow cookies by default. You can, however, block cookies and delete them via the settings of your browser or device. Preventing or deleting cookies may make our website less user-friendly, and our website will no longer remember things like your language settings. Deleting cookies from browser history will clear cookies but will not stop the use of cookies in the future.

Alternatively, you can select “ingocnito” or “private browsing” when browsing through websites.

Please find instructions on how to delete cookies from the most popular browsers here: Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome and Safari.

Third-party cookies and data collected

In addition to our own cookies in our online services, we use third-party cookies.

Third-party cookies are owned by third parties, such as web analytics providers. We use Google Analytics cookies, among others, for targeted advertising and for collecting measurement and analytics data from our online services.

Third parties are able to identify the user with cookie data collected by third parties. Third-party services are subject to their own cookie and privacy policies, and, consequently, Orion is not responsible for third-party collection and handling of data.

If you wish to block cookies set by Google Analytics, you can download a browser plug-in from here: (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en). You can also use other tools and plug-ins to block cookies and tracking.

We allow social media plug-ins in our online service so that you can, for example, visit our social media pages and use the Share buttons. These services are subject to the Terms of Service of the social media service provider. Here you can find the Terms of Service for services such as Google, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.


Orion reserves the right to make changes to its Cookie Policy should the Cookie Policy need to be updated owing to changes in legislation or other reasons.
