What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that a browser stores on a user's device when using the Internet. Cookies are used for many reasons, the most common of which is the proper functioning of the website.
A cookie stored on a user's device allows the website to remember the device and collect information about which pages and functions are used by the user's browser. In this way, companies like Marimekko can find out how popular individual pages are, or which pages are rarely visited, in which case they can be improved.
In practice, the provision of services on the Internet technically requires that cookies are stored. For example, in an online store, it is important that the website remembers the user who visited the online store and what products the user has viewed and added to their shopping cart. Cookies ensure that the website remembers the contents of the user's shopping cart when the user moves backwards, for example to view other products.
Cookies cannot be used to identify the user's identity or other personal information. Cookies do not spread computer viruses or other malware and cannot collect information about what the user is using their computer for.
You can refuse the storage of cookies on your device in the browser settings. In this case, however, you should note that not all functions of the website will work as well as possible. You can always check which cookies are stored on your device and change and delete the stored cookies.
If you do not want to enable Marimekko's cookies, most new browsers can select advanced cookie settings from Internet settings and add this domain to the list of websites whose cookies are not enabled. In these settings, you can also delete cookies stored by the browser, either individually or all at once.
Commonly used cookies
In addition, cookies are used to compile statistics, to remember the user's browsing behavior: how many times the user's computer or terminal has visited Marimekko's website, how long the user has been on the website and how the user has accessed the website (for example via Google). Our own and third-party cookies, such as Google Analytics, are used for this purpose. You can review the privacy and security policies of Google Analytics here: http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html.
The website also uses other cookies to remember the user's choice of language, so that the user does not always have to choose the language again. Cookies are used to give a user a unique session identifier that is deleted when the user closes the browser. In addition, the website uses technical cookies to ensure that the user is directed to the correct regional section of the website and that the elements of the page are kept open.
