Privacy and cookie policy

Sectra recognizes and respects the importance of the privacy of the visitors to our websites. This policy accounts for the cookies used and the personal data collected via our websites.

Sectra automatically receives and stores information from your web browser, such as IP address, cookie information and the pages you visit, to log files on our server. Sectra may also collect other personal data such as name, email address and other information that you voluntarily provide through forms.

If you do not agree with the terms herein, please do not use this website and delete the cookies placed by the website.


Our websites use cookies for statistics, adaptation of content to the visitor's preferences and choices and to pre-fill forms. They can also be used to target more relevant advertising to potential and existing customers, if permission has been given by you to send such information.

A cookie is a small text file, which is stored on your computer to recognize your computer at recurring visits. The cookie may transmit information via your browser with a purpose of authenticating or identifying the computer (via e.g. the IP address) or the user. Cookies may contain information such as registration data and user preferences. When a server receives a request from a computer which stores a cookie from the website, the server can use the information stored in the cookie in combination with the information stored on the server. A cookie cannot collect information from your computer and cannot carry any virus or other damaging files.

There are two types of cookies, persistent cookies and session cookies, which are both used on Sectra's website. A persistent cookie remains on your computer for a specified period of time while a session cookie is stored temporarily in the computer's memory while the visitor is on a site. Session cookies disappear when you close the browser.

You may delete cookies if you no longer wish to store them on your computer. However, please note that the high quality of our website may be reduced as a consequence thereof. Please refer to the help guide for your browser for further guidance.
