These cookies are used to analyze user behavior. With the help of the collected data we can evaluate and iterate changes or new ideas. The cookies collect information anonymously. For example, we would like to know: How many visitors did the website have? How did they find Startnext and which pages did they look at? We use Google Analytics for this..

By the way: You can log out of this tracking on your desktop computer by visiting this website: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

We are also interested in how the content is used on individual pages. The provider we use for this is called Hotjar. The cookie "_hjIncludedInSample" is then set as a "session cookie" to record when a visitor is included by Hotjar. The interactions of randomly selected, individual user:s are recorded anonymously. It is used to anonymously record interactions of randomly selected, individual visitors with the website. This creates a log of, for example, mouse movements and clicks, and we find out whether visitors to our website find what they are looking for.
