Dynamic online publications are also covered in the Legal Deposit Act. This applies to material published on the Internet in Danish, by Danes or addressed to Danes.

To ensure the collection of internet material, we regularly "harvest" the Danish part of the internet to our web archive. Since 2005, we have collected and preserved internet material as part of the preservation of the Danish cultural heritage. The collection takes place automatically.
