Action 11 in Denmark flag Denmark

In accordance with Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC, Member States will enable citizens to have electronic access to those personal data that are held on them when available electronically and will inform them electronically whenever such data are being processed by automatic means, in a simple and unambiguous manner.

Indicator Status Evidence
Under the existing Directive (95/46/EC), does your legislation give your citizens right to have electronic access to their personal data that are held by the third parties in the electronic form? Yes It should be noted that the Directive (and thus the transposition of the Directive into Danish legislation) has no legal obligations regarding the use of electronic means. (1) Citizens have to some extent access to their personal data via the national citizen portal through a "MyPage" functionality: Cf. the Danish langauge citizen portal: https://www.borger.dk/Sider/default.aspx Cf. the English language portal citizen portal for foreigners: https://lifeindenmark.borger.dk/Pages/default.aspx (2) Citizens have to some extent access to the personal health data and information through the Danish national health portal: Cf. (only in Danish) https://www.sundhed.dk/ (3) Other information and data are accessible through other channels.
Under the existing Directive (95/46/EC), does your legislation give your citizens right to be informed electronically whenever their personal data are processed by automatic means? Yes It should be noted that the Directive only gives the citizen the right to access personal information and data - not necessarily digitally. In practice, it depends on the specific services accessed by the citizens whether they are informed by electronic means.
