Confidentiality - policy

Data Confidentiality Policy at Statistics Denmark.

Confidentiality - data treatment

The basic data provided to Eurostat should be treated as confidential. This regards both individual price observations and average prices. Individual price observations are also confidential due to national low ‘Low about Statistics Denmark' no. 1189 from 21. December 1992. In principle Statistics Denmark is for the free dissemination and exchange of data between participating countries. Dissemination of our data to user groups e.g. Eurostat, OECD, other Commission services and other international organizations may only happen in consultation with Statistics Denmark. Concerning the publication of other countries data, only the data which are already published by Eurostat are re-published in our publications.
