This website uses cookies

This website uses cookies that support gathering statistics on visitor numbers, cookies of social media plugins, and cookies necessary in terms of the technical functionality of the website. The stored data cannot be retraced to a natural person.

If you accept all cookies, you will support the development of this website in the following way:

  • This website uses the Snoobi Analytics service for analysing and developing site usage. Data comprise identification data on the visitor’s web browser, on use of the website, on where the visitor has navigated to the website from, on the operating system and screen resolution, and the IP address of the user. The IP address is stored in an anonymised form, which prevents identification of an individual user. You will find more information about the operation of the service on the website of Snoobi.
  • The Hotjar analytics tool gathers information anonymously on how customers use the service, i.e. what links they klick on, where the cursor is moving on the page and how much the page is being scrolled. Hotjar is not in use in the online services, the tip-off page or any other customs forms where customers can fill in personal information (for example, e-services and online tip-offs. Hotjar does not collect personal data. The IP address of the equipment used for scrolling the website is saved temporarily and anonymously in the system. More information on how the service is available on the Hotjar website.
  • Embedded social media contents (for example, Youtube) are visible on the website. Moreover, social media plugins can set cookies from their own services and based on their own principles.
  • Askem buttons (in Finnish and Swedish) are used for collecting information on user experiences. Askem cookies store a randomly generated line of characters in the visitor’s browser for identifying transactions from that particular browser. It is not possible to identify individual users through cookies. More information is available on the Askem website.
  • To prevent malicious input in forms, we use the Google tool reCAPTCHA. The tool uses cookies and other data from the user’s browser to detect potentially malicious input.

Customs has made an agreement with providers of analytics services on the processing of this data.

If you accept only the necessary cookies, you are preventing the analytics services described above from functioning in your own use. Social media embeddings are not displayed on the website and they do not store cookies.

Necessary cookies are those essential for the technical functionality of the website.

The search function on the tulli.fi website stores the search words used, the time of the search and the IP address in an anonymised form. The search function does not store cookies in your browser. Search words are used for developing the website. IP addresses and timestamps are only used by the service provider for solving malfunctions. More information is available in the Addsearch privacy policy and the Customs Communications privacy policy.
