The law concerning electronic communication came into effect on 25 July 2003. This law states that a visitor to a website should be informed about what cookies are used for and given the opportunity to refuse such use. A cookie is a small text file with information that provides technical support that aims at improving user functions when visiting a website in various ways. This text file is added to the website user’s computer. A cookie can for example track what language you have chosen or what sections you’ve already read during a previous visit. Stena.com doesn’t catalogue any personal information via cookies. Information about the visitor can therefore not be saved. However, cookies are used to automate filling in your job applications. To avoid cookies you need to set your web-reader’s security settings to automatically deny cookies or to inform you if a website contains cookies. This setting might mean that some parts of stena.com won’t work properly on your computer.
