In order to help us to analyse how our site is being used and to measure the number of visitors Medianorway gathers information when users visit this site. The information includes an anonymised version of the user's IP address, browser information, date, time and which particular web pages that have been visited. These data points are stored in our user log and are not shared with anyone.

In addition to our own log we use the web analytics service Google Analytics to analyse traffic to our web site. This information is anonymised as well so that details cannot be traced back to you personally. The information is shared with Google, but only in anonymised form. You can read more about Google Analytics' handling of personal data here. If you specifically do not want your web activity to be registered by Google in this way, you can prevent this by using Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.

As most browsers automatically store cookies, visiting our site implies that you accept cookies. If you do not want to be a part of our user statistics you can alter the settings in your browser so that cookies are not allowed or you can click here.
