In certain cases, the Royal Danish House will be obliged to share the information with other public authorities. This can be, for example, the ministries in Denmark and other parts of the executive as part of security measures.
Personal information is not shared with third parties with reference to marketing or similar purposes.

Information and purposes
Consent to cookies
When we collect personal information about registered persons, it is voluntary for them to provide the information. Failure to provide the information may result in our inability to carry out the purposes briefly described above.
The collection of information can take place in several ways. Individuals can provide the information of their own accord, or it can come from the company or organization the individual is affiliated with, or it can come by way of an inquiry to other public authorities.
How long do we store personal information?
The Royal Danish House only stores and processes personal information as long as it is necessary in relation to the set purpose for the processing and for documentation and historical purposes.
In some areas, a more-specific statutory time limit is set for how long personal information can be stored.
The Royal Danish House uses data processors to host and assist with the operation of IT and security.

- Right to object to the processing of personal information and to have limits put on the processing of personal information.
