About cookies

Cookies are small text files that are used on the KTH web site. Where cookies are used they intend to improve the user experience and help KTH analyze the usage of the site.

Temporary cookies

Temporary cookies are used on those parts of the web site where a login is necessary and for certain interactive features, like the “time plan generator”.

When you log out after a login, the cookie will be erased. Otherwise the cookie will be erased when you close the web browser. The cookie contains an session specific ID so the system will be able to identify you after login. Interactive features that don´t demand login use cookies to keep track of choices you make so relevant information can be displayed.

Permanent cookies

The Student Web uses a permanent cookie if you choose a programme specific view of the web site. This cookie will remain in your computer even after closing the browser window so you don´t have to choose your programme specific view every time you visit the Student Web.

The KTH website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. Google Analytics uses permanent cookies, which help KTH to analyze how users use the site over time. The information generated by the cookie is transmitted to and stored by Google servers. Google may transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

Permanent cookies can be removed through menu choices in your web browser.

You can avoid cookies completely through settings in your web browser, but you will then not be able to use those parts of the web site that require login or certain interactive features.
