On October 12, 2021, the Danish Business Authority (DBA) announced it will launch a number of cookie inspections of Danish websites. Specifically where the data collection of websites that due to their risk profile, entail an especially high risk of harm to citizens.
What’s the purpose of the DBA cookie inspection?
The 100 most visited Danish websites will undergo a mandatory inspection of their cookies conducted by the DBA. Including websites in the healthcare industry, and mandatory self-service solutions in the public sector. Ultimately, these subject-based inspections in the cookie area will be completed before the end of 2021.
Cookies are typically used to track website users as they navigate and behave with various websites and applications. As a result, the primary purpose of the cookie inspections is to allow the Danish Business Authority the opportunity to prevent and guide frequently seen errors in cookie solutions. This is especially true for websites where the effect for users is greatest.
Who will the DBA website inspection affect?
Before the end of 2021, the inspections will mostly focus on:
- 100 most visited 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-mentioned criteria but to a limited extent. For example, on the basis of press coverage or citizen inquiries who specifically draw attention to websites with shortcomings in cookie solutions.
