NemID/Digital Signature

NemID is your digital signature and is just as legally binding as your personal signature on a document.

NemID consists of a user-ID, a password, and a key card with one-time codes. When you log on, you first enter your user-ID and your password and after that a code from your key card. The card with the printed one-time codes is a laminated card the size of a credit card.

NemID can be used from most computers, smartphones, and tablets and does not need installation. You can for instance borrow a computer, use the computer of the library or use a computer of an internet café. All you need is to remember your user-ID, your password, and bring along your key card.

You need your NemID, as the Danish authorities are sending almost all mail to the citizens electronically, and to a great extent it requires that you use digital solutions when filling in forms to public authorities.

 

 

You also need NemID if you wish to use the electronic self-service options/netbank of the banks, just as a number of companies, i.a. insurance and pension companies give access to self-service solutions by means of NemID.

You can read more in English about NemID HERE and about electronic mail on E-BOKS.

 

Charlotte and Ian

 
Danish/English couple:

Wish of living the good life

”Above all, we just wanted to be together and live the good life. We love being together” says the Danish/English couple Charlotte and Ian Coles who have settled down in an idyllic old farm house at Kloster, halfway between the Ringkøbing Fjord and the Stadil Fjord and close to the town of Ringkøbing.

It is not surprising that the couple had a wish of the good life in peaceful surroundings with lots of nature. Ian was a Major in the British Army, which meant the couple had moved around military bases in England and Germany for years. Ian had also been deployed close to the world’s war zones, leaving Charlotte alone and suffering months of deprivation during their first year in Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality.

They bought the old farmhouse overlooking the Stadil Fjord in 2013, and Charlotte moved in full-time, while Ian could only come home as work allowed. But now the good life has really started as Ian retired this summer.

Ian is 48 years old and he has just landed a job with Vestas - the wind turbine manufacturer – as a Project Training Leader.

Johanna and Malte

 
German family:

Good working conditions leaving room for a family life close to the North Sea

The North Sea. Proper wages – on time – and working conditions leaving room for a good family life with children. Those are the really big advantages pointed out by the German couple Malte and Johanna Mayrberger when moving from the city of Berlin to the seaport of Hvide Sande. Well yes – into the bargain is also the possibility of buying your own house and the fact that people are friendly and polite.

”We would never have been able to buy a house in Germany. You need to provide a down payment of half the price to obtain a loan for the remaining, and yet it is very difficult and sometimes impossible to qualify for a mortgage,” Malte explains, and Johanna adds:

”At any rate we would not have been able to afford having a child, a car, going on holidays, which we do every year, and have time for leisure activities.”

Malte and Johanna moved to Hvide Sande on the 1st November nine years ago and have settled in fine.
