About the website's gathering and use of your sensitive information

Why do we gather personal information?

When you visit the website of Bruun Rasmussen, you do so entirely anonymously. We do not gather any personal information - not even your email address. However, the browser on your computer does tell us the IP number and the type of computer and operating system you use.

In order to use the individual features of Bruun Rasmussen’s website, you will be asked to set up an account with certain personal details. This applies, for example, to the submission of bids, payment for purchased items or on consignment of an item for auction.

Bruun Rasmussen gathers this information in order to be able to offer you improved customer service and to allow you easy access to services such as bid submissions and payment. In addition, we use personal information in connection with the purchase and sale of items at the auctions held by Bruun Rasmussen and to keep you informed of new services and other relevant information.

However, the personal information is also gathered for security reasons. In some cases, we may be required by the public authorities to disclose personal information. We therefore reserve the right to disclose the information to the Danish tax authority (SKAT) and the police for investigative purposes.

How do we obtain your personal information?

We gather information by a variety of means, and to visit some areas of Bruun Rasmussen’s website it is necessary to set up an account with your personal details. The procedure is as follows: complete the form with your name, address, telephone number and email address; then choose a password to protect your information. Your information will then be filed and you will receive a client number. The next time you log onto Bruun Rasmussen’s website all you need to do is write your client number and password and the system will find the necessary information.

As many other websites do, we use cookie technology on our website. The first time you connect to the website of Bruun Rasmussen, a cookie is downloaded to your computer.

You can set your browser to not use cookies.

What do we use the information for?
