What are cookies?

The Danish Parliament uses cookies for a number of purposes. You will be informed that the site will transfer cookies before they are transferred. We – and all others – are obliged to do this.

The ministerial order deals with the requirement to obtain the user’s informed permission when a website is going to store cookies on the user’s IT equipment.
