A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your PC, phone or tablet when you surf on the Internet.

Cookies have many applications, but they are basically used to store information about user behaviour on the Net or to ensure that a site or a solution functions technically as it should. Cookies are stored on the user’s computer. A cookie is not dangerous as it is a passive file that cannot spread computer virus or other harmful programmes. It helps to analyse, among other things, how the website is used in order to enable web editors to improve the user experience. In several cases, cookies can be necessary to supply a service.

Cookies are sent back and forth between your browser and a web server. They can tell e.g.:

  • if you are logged in
  • which municipality you want to see information from
  • how you navigate on the website.

It is a common feature of the cookies that lifeindenmark.dk, Digital Post and a number of other self-service solutions use that they serve the purpose of giving you a better user experience. The cookies used by lifeindenmark.dk contain no personal information.

Lifeindenmark.dk uses cookies primarily for statistics and to see if you are logged in with your NemID. At the same time, cookies make it possible to see information and show self-service solutions that apply to your municipality on the website.

Lifeindenmark.dk has concluded agreements with various private IT companies that help us operate and maintain the portal. All authorities depend on private IT companies to ensure the operation of the IT systems the authority uses. As part of the collaboration, a so-called data processing agreement has been concluded.

The agreement implies that external partners work according to the instructions given by the authority and are not allowed to use sensitive personal data for other purposes. The legislation is to ensure that the collaboration takes place on a safe and secure basis, and the Danish Data Protection Agency supervises that the authorities comply with the legislation.
