Notkun á vafrakökum - Heilbrigðisstofnun Suðurnesja

Svo kallaðar vafrakökur* eru notaðar á vefnum í tvennum tilgangi, til að telja heimsóknir á vefinn og til þess að þekkja aftur þá sem nota „Mínar stillingar“. 

Það er stefna "STOFNUN/FYRIRTÆKI" að nota vafrakökur sparlega og með ábyrgum hætti. Notendur vefsins geta að sjálfsögðu stillt vafra sína þannig að þeir láti vita af kökum eða hafni þeim með öllu. 

"STOFNUN/FYRIRTÆKI" notar Google Analytics til vefmælinga. Við hverja komu inn á vefinn eru nokkur atriði skráð, svo sem tími og dagsetning, leitarorð, frá hvaða vef er komið og gerð vafra og stýrikerfis. Þessar upplýsingar má nota við endurbætur á vefnum og þróun hans, t.d. um það efni sem notendur sækjast mest eftir og fleira. Engum frekari upplýsingum er safnað um hverja komu og ekki er gerð tilraun til að tengja slíkar upplýsingar við aðrar persónugreinanlegar upplýsingar.

Þjónusta Siteimprove er nýtt á vefnum með svipuðum hætti og Google Analytics, til dæmis til að telja heimsóknir og finna brotna tengla sem notendur smella á.  

Vafrakökur eru einnig notaðar til að þekkja aftur notendur sem nota „Mínar stillingar“ til að nota vefinn. Sú þjónusta kemur til móts við þarfir fólks sem á erfitt með að lesa, til dæmis vegna lesblindu eða sjónskerðingar. Þeir þurfa því ekki að velja þjónustuna í hvert sinni sem vefurinn er heimsóttur. 

* „cookies“ - sérstök skrá sem komið er fyrir á tölvu notanda sem heimsækir viðkomandi vef og geymir upplýsingar um heimsóknina.
