What are website cookies?
Website cookies are small text files that are saved on the device you use to access the website. For instance, cookies help us understand whether this is your first visit to our website or you are a returning visitor, how many times any particular article has been read and which products are added to the virtual shopping cart.
Unless you have switched off cookies in your web browser, we assume that you have agreed to cookies on our website.
You can prohibit the saving of all or some cookies on your device by changing your web browser settings. With cookies switched off by the user, our website might not function properly because it relies on cookies for some of the features.

If you previously allowed cookies in your web browser but now wish to amend or withdraw your consent, you should change the corresponding settings in the web browser and then delete the cookies that have been saved on your device in the meantime.
The Tele2 website uses different cookies that can be classified as follows:
COOKIES BY DURATION
Session cookies. These are temporary cookies that are used for a single website visit and are deleted after you close your web browser. Such temporary cookies are used, for example, to remember that you are logged in or what you have put in the cart.
Permanent cookies. These cookies help us remember your information and settings for your future visits to our website. For instance, a permanent cookie remembers your language preference or your username and password so that you will not have to enter such details every time you visit our website. The permanent cookies accelerate website loading and improve user-friendliness. The permanent cookies have different expiry rules: some stay on the visitor’s device only for a few hours or days while others remain there for months and even years.
