For EU’s GDPR regulation, please visit Europe: Privacy and Data Protection-related Laws
Privacy law in Denmark is supervised and enforced by an independent agency called Datatilsynet (the Danish Data Protection Agency). It is primarily based upon the Act on Processing of Personal Data.
Act on Processing of Personal Data:
In October 2017, the Danish Minister of Justice issued a proposal for a new Danish Data Protection Act to implement the European Union’s GDPR. This Act entered into force at the same time as GDPR, on May 25, 2018. GDPR does not apply to areas of law that are outside the scope of European Union law, such as national security, purely personal matters, or household activities. In Denmark, the age at which a child can provide valid consent is reduced to 13 years (16 years old in the European Union). Personal registration numbers (CPR numbers) are also regarded as sensitive personal data. There are also special Danish rules regarding the use of personal data for marketing purposes.
