What are cookies?
Cookies are small text snippets stored on the user's device by the online store or third-party services.
They are used for several purposes, including:
The basic functionality of the online store, e.g., the shopping cart
Targeting Facebook or Google ads to site visitors.
In many countries, including Finland, using certain cookies requires the consent of the person visiting the site.
Cookie notification in the online store
In the online store, a cookie notification is displayed at the bottom of the page, where customers can choose which cookies they accept. It works as follows:
When a user visits the website for the first time, only the necessary cookies are stored on their device.
Then the user will see a notification at the bottom of the page where they can choose whether to accept all cookies or only the necessary cookies.
Later, the user can change the settings and decide not to accept all cookies. The customer can access the cookie settings by clicking on the cookie link at the bottom of the page.
Necessary and non-necessary cookies
By default, the online store only adds necessary cookies to the user's device, such as cookies that maintain the contents of the shopping cart or the user's language selection. Other cookies, such as those used by analytics, are not necessary for the online store to function.
If you wish, you can change how the online store handles cookies.
Go to Online store > Information.
Custom scripts and cookies
When adding scripts to the store, you can choose the type of script (Necessary for the functionality of the store, Marketing, Analytics, or Other).
If you choose Necessary for the functionality of the store, then the script will always work in your store, regardless of the visitor's cookie choice.
If you select any other option, the script will only work if the customer accepts all cookies.
