Important information about Google Analytics and cookies on the aklagare.se website

During the period 1 February 2016 to and including 22 February 2021, the website aklagare.se (and prosecutor.se) used the analysis tool Google Analytics to collect and follow statistics on the development of the number of visitors to the website during various time periods.

The use of this analysis tool additionally aimed to provide the Swedish Prosecution Authority with information regarding which pages are most or least visited and the tool has been used to improve the website to better meet the needs of its visitors.

It has come to our attention that the website previously lacked clear information to visitors that we used Google Analytics on our website, and that we also removed the link between our website and the analytics tool too late. We can state that this was incorrectly handled by us and can only apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused to visitors to the website. All connections to the tool have now been removed as a result of the Schrems II judgment of 16 July 2020.

In this matter the Swedish Prosecution Authority has made a report about a personal data breach to the Swedish Authority for Privacy Protection (IMY).
