I have recently switched on ‘ask’ for the web cookie (HTTP cookie) management on my Web browser. And I must say I am surprised by the number of web sites using not only their own cookies, but also cookies from third parties.Danmarks Radio (DR), the Danish publicly funded radio and television, has no commercials neither in the radio, the television nor on the associated web site. I was therefore somewhat surprised that I got a cookie for www.mybanker.dk after browsing on the DR Web site. It turns out that some of the financial data displayed on the DR web site are coming from a server in the domain “six.se”, and it seems that the cookie is coming in from included content. So by browsing DR web site data is send to a company. A cookie is not quite an advertisement. However, it must be of commercial value. Why else should the company have the trouble of adding the cookie? I would think that DR is on slippery ground here. Besides www.mybanker.dk DR third party cookies is also transmitted from the Polish Gemius company that presumable is doing Web statistics for DR.
