Cookie compliance

The Danish Business Authority has announced that it will start imposing fines on businesses which use cookies on their websites, in violation of the Danish Executive Order on Cookies, which came into force on 14 December 2011.

The Executive Order on Cookies, which contains rigorous new rules, requires that the user of a website:

  1. actively accepts the storage of cookies in the user’s terminal equipment, and
  2. has easy access to a user-friendly cookie policy which, among other things, informs the user of the cookies which are stored, the purpose of such storage, etc.

Bech-Bruun advises on e-commerce and cookies as well as cookies and personal data compliance.

For more information, please contact Claus Barrett Christiansen, Birgitte Toxværd and Mikkel Friis Rossa.
