Decision to disclosure information

The first thing we do after receiving your request is assess whether you have a legal interest in the data. If we believe this to be the case, we send your request to the anonymous registrant. The registrant then has 14 days to consent or object to release of the data.

Once the deadline has passed, we decide whether the registrant's objections to the disclosure must be given greater weight than your legal interest or whether the information may be disclosed. When making our decision, the information received from you and the information received from the registrant is taking into account. We also consider, for example, whether the case is urgent in nature and whether we can wait for a discovery order.

Appeal procedures

If we decide against releasing the requested data, and if you require the information to make a decision on who to sue, you may apply for a discovery order against DK Hostmaster according to Section 299 and Section 343 (1) of the Danish Administration of Justice Act. These sections contain the authority, according to current legal practice, to obtain a court order for release of data from a third party, even if said data are not required in connection with a pending court case.
