Some of the cookies used by Alko’s e-services are so-called necessary cookies. These cookies are necessary for the service to function properly, as they perform tasks such as transferring products to your shopping basket or enable discussion in the chat function.

By analytics cookies we mean measurement techniques, such as Google Analytics. The measurement is used to calculate the number of visitors and to identify possible compatibility and usage issues, as well as development targets. Cookies are also used to identify the customer groups which use the Service and aim the communications of the Service accordingly. Individual customers are not identified when categorising customer groups.
