If you don’t accept cookies being used, you can disable cookies in your web browser’s security settings. However, this will mean that the functionality of www.handelsbanken.se will be limited, and it will not be possible to use Handelsbanken’s online banking service.
How do cookies work?
There are different types of cookies: persistent cookies and session cookies. Handelsbanken uses both types on its website. A cookie is a text file and incapable of causing any damage. A website can only read a cookie that was created by itself.
We use session cookies
Handelsbanken’s online banking service uses session cookies so that the web server (the Bank) can distinguish between different users. The cookie contains your identity and is stored in your computer for as long as you are linked up to our online banking service. When you log off, it disappears. In order to be able to use our online banking service, you must accept cookies in your web browser.
We use persistent cookies
At Handelsbanken we use persistent cookies to make it easier for you when you visit our website. For example, when you have selected the branch that you wish to go to, this is saved in a cookie on your computer. The next time that you visit www.handelsbanken.se, you won’t need to select a branch – you’ll arrive directly at the branch you selected before.
Our website handelsbanken.se contains embedded web TV programmes which can be viewed with or without subtitles. Depending on what you select, this is then stored as a persistent cookie in your computer. The next time you visit the site, you will have the same selection (with or without subtitles) as the previous time.
