The user cannot be identified using cookies alone. However, information gathered using cookies and similar methods can be connected to an identified user, who has subscribed to a newsletter or registered for an SRV event, for example. In such a case, information is collected and processed as described in the privacy statement [link to customer register].

You can prevent such monitoring with the Google Analytics’ opt-out function, https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

The other cookies collecting tools are Smartdiscovery, Sanomat, Etuovi, Giosg-chat and Adform. SRV can also use information collected on site usage to produce advertisements or other content targeted at the browser. SRV can create target groups based on the websites that certain browsers have visited.
