Cookies Policy


Last updated: 2017 October 19

Our website stores information on your browser using cookies. Cookies are pieces of data that websites place on visitors' computers to store a range of information, usually specific to the visitor, such as the device used to view the site. This information is used to make the site work as you expect it to.  

Cookies were created to overcome a limitation in web technology: Web pages are 'stateless' - which means that they have no memory, and cannot easily pass information between each other. So, cookies provide a kind of memory for web pages. Cookies allow you to login on one page; if you move around to other pages you still stay logged in at the first page. They allow you to set your preferences for the display of a page, and remember them the next time you return to it.

Cookies do not identify the individual person, but are used to give you a more personalised web experience. They are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off by us. You can set your browser to block or alert you about the cookies. If you block the cookies, some parts of the site will not work well.

Below is a list of the cookies we use on this site:

1. __HealthHelper_Cookie_xxxxxxx_xxxxxxxx

This cookie stores Web Application session information. They may identify you as a single user when you move between pages, but carry no personally identifiable information and are destroyed when you close your browser, unless you actively choose to be remembered for easier login on your next visit.

2. __RequestVerificationToken_xxxxxxxx

This is a cookie for preventing cross-site scripting (XSS). This type of cookie allows a user to be safe from an attacker who can use XSS to send a malicious script. Without this cookie, the end user’s browser ”thinks” that the malicious script came from a trusted source, and allows it to access any cookies, session tokens, or information retained by the browser and used on the site. The malicious scripts can also rewrite the content of the HTML page. The cookie preventing this is thus an important one.

3. _currentTimeZoneOffset_xxxxxxxx

This type of cookie stores the user´s timezone information, and adjusts the content and functionality accordingly.

4. __HealthHelper_Cookie_puid_xxxxxxxx

This type of cookie allows a user to use the public (“trial”, “no registration required”) version of a Health Helper. Thanks to this cookie the user does not have to insert the same information for a second time, when registering after testing a publicly available Helper.

5. _sync_xxxxxxxx

This cookie syncs all your session browser data.

6. __HealthHelper_Cookie_lvp_xxxxxxxx

This cookie saves your last visited page.
