Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer when you visit a web page. Some of the cookies are necessary for various services on our website to work. Novatech AS uses cookies to analyze the use of our websites.

Novatech AS reserves the right to use cookies for three purposes:

2.2. Web analytics

Novatech AS reserves the right to use cookies for web analytics to improve our services.

2.3. Statistics

Novatech AS reserves the right to use logs from our web server to generate statistics on visits. These statistics allow us to improve the information on our website. The information contains various variables, such as which page you have visited, what you have searched for in our search engine, date and time of visit and technical information about your device. In practice, it will not be possible to identify the visitors from the stored parameters. Therefore, the statistics are anonymous. This information can therefore not be linked to you as an individual.

The basis for processing the generation of anonymous statistics is the Privacy Regulation, Article 6 (1) (f), which allows us to process information that is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest that outweighs the consideration of the individual's privacy. The legitimate interest is to improve and further develop information on our websites.
