Personal data and cookie policy

 

The purpose of this privacy and cookie policy is to help you gain an understanding as to what data we collect, why we collect it and what we do with it. This is important in order for us to comply with the conditions set out in the new personal data ordinance (GDPR) which came into force on 25 May 2018.

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

GDPR establishes a new framework for how personal data is processed and how we think about our right to privacy. The purpose of the General Data Protection Regulation is to strengthen and unify data protection rules and rights for the benefit of EU citizens. It applies to all organizations within the EU and to organizations outside of the EU which deliver goods or services to the EU, or which use tracking technologies (such as cookies or tracking pixels) to monitor the behavior of EU citizens.

1.1  Protection of personal data

According to the General Data Protection Regulation, your personal data must be kept safely and confidently. We store your personal data on computers with limited access, which is placed in controlled facilities. Our security measures are continuously monitored to determine whether our data is handled properly and with regard to your rights as a user. However, we cannot guarantee 100 percent security for data transfers over the internet. This means there may be risk that other unauthorized persons gain access to information when data is sent and stored electronically. You submit your personal data at your own risk.

The rapid development of the internet means that changes in our processing of personal data may become necessary. We, therefore, reserve the right to update and modify this privacy policy.

If we do, we will of course change the date of “last updated” at the bottom of the page. In case of significant changes, we will notify you by a visible notice on our websites.  

To the extent that personal information about you is processed, you have the right to get informed in which personal data is attributed to you according to the Personal Data Act. If it appears that the personal data about you is incorrect or misleading, you are entitled to require these corrected, deleted or blocked. You can always object to any information about you being processed. You may also revoke your consent at any time. You have the possibility to complain about the processing of information and data regarding you. Complaints are filed with the Data Protection Agency, cf. Protection Act § 58.

We offer certain functions on our website that are only available via the use of tracking technologies. You can always block, delete or deactivate these technologies if your browser allows you to do so. However, if you disable cookies or other similar technologies, you may be unable to use certain functions or tools.

We do this by assigning them a unique identifier that is designed to be read-only by us.

Similarly, we process combined data as personal data in connection with this privacy policy to the extent that non-personal data is combined with personal data.
