The terms govern all we do in regards to collecting, processing and using data. They also involve your rights regarding access, changing and deleting your personal data. By using our digital channels, you agree to these terms. If you disagree with the computer practices described in the terms, you should avoid using our digital channels.
This version (v1.0) was updated 17/09/2018.
We define some important concepts used here:
Our «digital channels» include our websites and other digital services such as blogs, email subscriptions and registering information through forms.
The data we collect about you depends on which of our digital channels you use, as well as what information you provide when purchasing, registering or in other contexts.
We collect personal data such as:
You are not obligated to provide us with personal information, but if you choose not to, we are not able to provide you with our services because, for example, we cannot bill you for the services or send you the information you request.
We can process personal data within the following categories:
Our digital channels are not intended for or targeted at children under 13 years of age. We do not store data regarding children under the age of 13 intentionally. If you believe that we have stored information about a child under 13, please contact us in writing so we can delete the information.
Information about your device’s specifications, software and your visit is automatically collected by us. This information may include, for example, your IP address, browser type , domain name, internet service provider, files viewed (HTML pages, graphics, etc.), operating system, access time and from where you arrived to our digital channels.
Tracking pixels (e.g. clear gifs, web beacons, web bugs)
We use tracking pixels (also called clear gifs, web beacons, web bugs) that help us improve our digital channels by telling us what content is being displayed. Tracking pixels are small graphics elements, with a unique identifier similar to the function of cookies, and used to track the behaviour of users on the web. Unlike cookies stored on the user’s hard drive, tracking pixels are invisibly baked in our digital channels or in emails. This allows us to measure the impact of our marketing. We bundle the information we collect from emails to the customer’s personal information.
Keep in mind that this does not protect you from every type of advertisement. You will still be exposed to generic advertising.
We use the information we store about you for the following purposes:
We primarily process personal data based on user consent. We also process personal data based on agreements and legitimate interests. When processing is based on your consent, you can withdraw your consent at any time by writing to us. When processing is based on legitimate interests, you have the right to submit a complaint regarding the processing.
Protecting your personal data is a top priority for us, and we continuously work to protect personal data and other confidential information. The work securing data includes both physical, technical and administrative measures, including the protection of employees, information, IT infrastructure, internal and public networks, as well as office buildings and technical facilities.
Securing data also means that we regularly carry out risk assessments and go through various factors such as available technology, business needs and legal requirements. This is to ensure that we have adequate security measures in place at all times, so that we can, for example, prevent personal data from being compromised.
We will be able to provide personal data to:
We can also disclose data:
We will store your personal data as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes specified in the terms, unless a longer storage period is imposed or permitted under applicable law.
Personal data is stored as long as you have an active relationship with us or our digital channels, or until you ask us to forget about you and delete stored information about you. We define a relationship with us or one of our digital channels as (i) being a customer with us, (ii) agreeing to receive marketing information from us, (iii) actively requesting contact with us through social media, electronic messages or online forms, (iv) been active on our digital channels after you have given your consent. The relationship is defined as active if it has been exercised during the last 24 months.
Storage of anonymised information is not subject to such limitations or requirements.
In addition, we try to ensure that personal data and other customer information is updated and correct and that we do not store any information that is unnecessary in relation to the purposes of processing personal data.
We may combine information from cookies with other information we have registered about you and your customer relationship when permitted by applicable law or you have given us your consent.
Our websites may contain links to third-party websites, products and services, including social media (such as Facebook’s Social Plugins). Third party services or third party applications available on our websites are subject to third party privacy notices. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with these third-party privacy practices.

We are committed to running a responsible and sustainable business. If you believe that we are not complying with these terms or applicable law, you may submit a complaint to us or, if necessary, to the Norwegian Data Protection Authority (Datatilsynet).
As our business and tools evolve, we may need to update the terms. We encourage you to review the terms on a regular basis. In case of major changes, we may also try to contact you directly through available channels, such as e-mail or alerts in our digital channels.
