When we use words like "us", "we", "our" we mean Djurens Rätt. You can find our company details in our privacy policy. We are the data controller of the data collected through the use of cookies on our website. When we refer to "you" we mean you as a user or visitor of our website.


By accepting our use of cookies, apart from necessary cookies, you consent to our use of cookies as described under "Cookies on this website" below. You may at any time change or withdraw your cookie consent - See the section "How you can change your cookie settings, incl. opting out" below.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small piece of data that a website stores on your device when you visit it and which is then read when you later revisit the site.

A cookie may contain information about the website itself, a unique identifier that allows the site to recognise your web browser when you return to the website, additional data that serves the purpose of the cookie, and the lifespan of the cookie itself.

Session cookies vs. persistent cookies

Session cookies only last as long as your online 'session'. This means that they will disappear from your computer or device when you close your browser.

Persistent cookies will stay on your computer or device after you close your browser. Persistent cookies will expire according to the time specified in the cookie - see below for the specific duration of our cookies below.

First party vs. third party cookies

First party cookies are cookies that are set by the website that you are visiting and it's only this website that can access and read these cookies.

Third party cookies are set by someone other than the owner of the website you’re visiting. As an example, some fundraising pages have content from other sites like YouTube. YouTube may set their own cookies on your browser when you play the video from YouTube. Cookies set by other sites and companies (i.e. third parties) can be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service.
