3 Min Read
The Danish Business Authority (‘DBA’) announced, on October 12, 2021, that it will initiate a number of cookie inspections of Danish websites, particularly where the data collection of websites that due to their risk profile, entail an especially high risk of harm to citizens.
What does the DBA cookie inspection mean?
The 100 most visited websites in Denmark, as well as websites in the healthcare industry, and mandatory self-service solutions in the public sector will undergo a mandatory inspection of their cookies conducted by the DBA. These subject-based inspections in the cookie area will take place before the end of 2021. Take action – get started with our Cookie Consent solution today!
Cookies can be used to track website users as they engage with various websites and applications. Therefore, the primary purpose of the cookie inspections is for the Danish Business Authority to have the opportunity to prevent and guide frequently seen errors in cookie solutions, particularly for websites where the effect for users is greatest.
Who will this inspection affect?
Before the end of 2021, the inspections will primarily focus on:
- The 100 most visited Danish websites
- Websites in the field of health
- State and regional websites, including public mandatory self-service solutions
The Danish Business Authority can continue to conduct investigations that go beyond the above selected topics, to a limited extent. For example, on the basis of press coverage or inquiries from citizens who specifically draw attention to websites with shortcomings in cookie solutions.
