Cookies Policy

This Cookies Policy applies to Maximus Sweden AB websites/platforms (the “websites”):

This policy also explains why we use cookies and how you can control their use.

We use cookies banners for your first visit to each of the websites. This tells you that we use cookies. It directs you to this policy. You will not see the cookies banner again after your first visit because we assume you understand our cookie policy.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files. Websites and apps often store cookies on the computer hard drives or mobile devices of visitors to their sites. We use the term “cookie” to refer to all technologies that store and access information on the devices you use to access the website.

Cookies contain random alphanumeric text characters and do not normally contain any personal information. Any personal information they might contain is a result of your own input on a website's form. Most of the time, when a cookie stores personal information, this information is coded so that it is unreadable to any third party who happens to access your cookie folder.

Cookies let you navigate between pages efficiently and store preferences. They improve your experience of a website. These are the different types of cookies we use:

  • Cookies served directly by us ("first-party cookies")
  • Cookies served by others, including data analytics or social media companies ("third-party cookies") – this includes third-party requests (which do not technically set cookies). For example, we may use share buttons on some of our sites to share articles with friends via Facebook or Twitter.
  • Cookies that last for periods of time, including:
    • “Session cookies,” which last as long as your browser is open. They are deleted automatically when you close your browser.
    • “Permanent cookies,” which survive after your browser is closed. They recognize your device when you open your browser and browse the internet again.

Remember: if you refuse or block cookies or disable Javascript, it may affect website performance. For example, some pages may not work properly or at all.

If you want more information about cookies and the Electronic Communications Act, please visit the Swedish Post and Telecom Authority’s (PTS) website,
