Privacy Policy

The Danish Data Protection Agency’s privacy policy outlines how the Danish Data Protection Agency utilises the personal data you leave behind when visiting the agency’s website.

In general, you should be aware that as an internet user you leave behind electronic tracks and that this enables others to track your traffic on the internet.

Collection from visits to the Danish Data Protection Agency’s website.
The Danish Data Protection Agency has ongoing access to statistical data about visitors to its website. It is not possible to identify individual persons based on this data.

When you visit the Danish Data Protection Agency’s website, the following information is collected about you:

1. Which pages you view and when – your “electronic tracks”,
2. the browser you are using,
3. your IP address, and
4. your username, if you have one.


When you browse the internet, you leave behind a “electronic track” that reveals where you have been. This track is generated by your browser sending information to a server, e.g. “I would like to see the page corresponding to the address //www.datatilsynet.dk.

Most browsers give information about their brand and version number, e.g. Microsoft Internet Explorer version 7.0. The server can then return the page you requested so that it is displayed correctly in your browser.

When your browser requests www.datatilsynet.dk, it also sends additional data to the server in question, including your IP address(your “address” on the internet). The server then knows where to send the page you requested.

Depending on the operating system and the browser you use, the browser often also sends your username to the server - the username you use when you log onto your machine.

 
Purpose of the collection
The Danish Data Protection Agency can use the above-mentioned data to see what path you take to find information at www.datatilsynet.dk.

The Danish Data Protection Agency can see whether you start on the front page and move on to the underlying pages, or if you jump into the middle of the website from a search engine, for example.

This information is only used in connection with carrying out operations and producing statistics that can be used to improve the structure of the Danish Data Protection Agency’s website.

 
Collection in connection with subscription
By subscribing to the Danish Data Protection Agency’s newsletter, the e-mail address you provide is registered.

This information is used to automatically send you the Danish Data Protection Agency’s newsletter.

This information is registered with the agency’s data processor (web hotel).


Some employees of the Danish Data Protection Agency have access to a list of subscribers. Using this information, the agency stays up to date about the scope and nature of subscribers.

Information about individual subscriptions is not transferred and this information is immediately deleted if you cancel your subscription.

 
Collection in connection with an enquiry regarding a specific case
When making an enquiry to the Danish Data Protection Agency regarding a specific case, or if your enquiry results in the creation of a case, your enquiry will be stored electronically and printed out and placed in the case record.

The case documents will be covered by the rules of the Public Administration Act and the Access to Public Administration Files Act similarly to all of the agency’s other correspondence.
