Why this policy exists
2. Personal Information
What is personal information?
Personal information (also referred to as personal data) is any information that can be used, directly or indirectly, to identify you as a natural person. Examples of personal information can be your name, address, identification numbers, location data, online identifiers or factors specific to your physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural and/or social identity. Information regarding your personal characteristics is also referred to as sensitive personal information.
Categories of personal information collected
The personal information you provide to us is data that you actively provide by filling in different types of forms. When ordering products and services from us, signing up for our newsletters, events or seminars, looking for and requesting vacant positions or submitting unsolicited application, we may ask you to fill in forms where you provide us with your personal information.
We use the collected information to improve the general user experience of our websites as well as compile statistics on traffic and communication of the sites.
If you have enabled cookies in your browser, your cookie information can be used to improve our communication with you through emails, newsletters etc.
You can also choose to turn off cookies in your browser, and/or delete stored cookies in your web browser. Note that blocking cookies may affect the functionality of our sites.
Why we need personal information
Besides the above listed purposes, the personal information that we collect from you can be used for any of the following purposes:
Give you a more personalized service
Your personal information helps us better meet your individual needs. If you have enabled cookies in your browser, the information can be used to provide you with a personalized user experience.
Improve and optimize our website
Your personal information helps us improve the look and feel of our web-site.
Improve our customer service
Your personal information helps us provide you with a better customer service and support experience.
Processing your requests
Your personal information makes it possible for us to process the requests you might give us or our site.
Improve our communication
The e-mail address you provide can be used to send you information and updates about your requests, company news, general updates, information about other similar products and services, our events and newsletters etc.
Note: you can cancel your subscription at any time by following the instructions at the bottom of each mail. If you have enabled cookies in your browser, your cookie information can be combined with data you’ve provided on our site to improve our customer communication.
Recipients of the personal information
We do not sell, trade or otherwise transfer your personal information to third parties. Exceptions to this are trusted third parties that help us run our sites, conduct our business and/or process your requests, and only if these parties agree to keep the information confidential and not use it for purposes other than agreed upon. We may also disclose your personal information in the rare cases where we find it necessary to comply with statutory requirements, maintain the sites’ policies or protect our own or others’ rights, property, or security. Non-personally identifiable information gathered from the website about visitors may, however, be provided to third parties for marketing, advertising or other use.
In some cases, we have agreements with third party service providers who help us get a better view of the site visitors. These service providers are not allowed to use the information they collect on our behalf for anything other than helping us operate and improve our business.
How long do we keep your personal information?
We will only save your personal information for as long as it’s relevant for the purpose for which it was originally collected. Sometimes, however, we need to retain it to comply with international or local laws/regulations, e.g. if you have made a request involving an economic transaction we will retain your information relevant in connection with this transaction for five years due to financial regulations.
Your personal rights
As a natural person, you have the right to:
- Be notified within 72 hours of us first having become aware of a data breach implicating your personal information.
- Get a report with information on what personal information we have about you, including the right to have any incorrect information corrected.
- Have the personal information we have about you deleted.
- Get your personal information delivered in an electronical format enabling you to port it to other systems.
- submit a complaint about the processing of your personal data to the national supervisory authority.
Any of the above personal rights requests must be delivered in writing (e-mail accepted) and we need to verify your identity before we can execute any of the above. We aim to comply with your request within reasonable time from receiving it.
Requests of this nature shall be directed at our Personal Data Protection Officer, Nina Jensen at firstname.lastname@example.org
