Basware uses cookies on all our Websites to gather information how and when pages in our Websites are visited, what our users’ technology preferences are and whether our Websites are functioning properly.

On our password-protected sites, the website may use cookies or other technology to help us authenticate you, store and recognise your configuration and user attributes, facilitate your navigation of the Website and customise its content.

In general terms, we use cookies on our Websites for the following purposes:

This helps us to develop the way our Websites function, by determining whether site visitors can find information easily, or by identifying the aspects of websites that are of the most interest to them, for example.
  • Usage preferences: Some cookies on our Websites are activated when visitors to our sites make a choice about their usage of the Website. Our Websites then use the settings preferences of the user in relation to future visits. This allows us to tailor the experience on our Websites to the individual user.
  • Policy Administration: We use cookies to record when a site visitor has seen a policy, such as this one, or provided consent, such as consent to the terms and conditions on our Websites. This avoids repeated questions to a user regarding the same terms.
