SKÅL INTERNATIONAL’S COOKIE POLICY

Skål uses cookies with the purpose of providing you with a better service and browsing experience. Following, we would like to provide you with clear and precise information about the cookies we use by briefly detailing what cookies are, what they are for, what types of cookies we use, why we use them are and how you can change the settings or entirely disable them, if you like.


What are cookies and what are they for?
A "Cookie" is a small file that is stored in the user’s computer, tablet, smartphone or any other device and contains information on the user’s browsing patterns.
Gathering the "cookies" from all our users helps us improve the quality of our website, as it enables us to identify the pages that are useful and those that are not, as well as the ones that could benefit from improvement.
Cookies are essential for Internet browsing and mean numerous benefits to the provision of interactive services, making the browsing and usability of our website easier. Under no circumstances will cookies damage your system. On the opposite, by enabling them you are helping us identify and solve errors.
