How cookies are used

- To handle some basic functions – such as video view and some support features about searches.
No personal information, such as email or name, is saved about the visitor through the cookies used on the site.
At lkab.com, we use both first and third party cookies, ie cookies contained in features used and controlled by other parties. Below are described first party cookies from, for example, Matomo Analytics. Cookies can be changed without prior notice by the owner.
