Cookies & Privacy Statement

The Royal Danish Mint's Privacy Policy describes how the Royal Danish Mint uses the personal data captured when you visit our webshop.

When you browse the Internet, an "electronic trail" will show where you have been. A cookie is a text file that is stored temporarily on your hard disk and it may contain text and numbers, e.g. dates. Cookies are not programs and do not contain harmful codes. Cookies enable a website to store specific data on your computer. In this way the website is able to recognise your computer and "remember" your preferences when you return. Ordinary cookies stored from the website are typically stored from the address displayed in the browser address bar.

But a website may also contain data retrieved from addresses other than the one displayed in the browser address bar, including search functions and analysis tools as well as ordinary content. In this way cookies from other addresses, also known as "third-party cookies", can be stored via the website you visit.

"Session cookies" are only stored during one browser session (i.e. they are deleted as soon as you leave the website), while others are stored for a specified period of time and not deleted until they expire ("persistent cookies"). Read more about cookies at
