Your rights

Data protection laws provide you with a number of rights which are explained below. If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please get in touch by using our contact information listed at the end of this Privacy Notice. In order to process any of the requests listed below, we may need to verify your identity. In such cases your response will be necessary for you to exercise any of the following rights:

  • Access: You may contact us if you want to obtain confirmation with respect to whether or not we are processing your personal data, as well as access to and further information regarding our processing of your personal data. You may also request a copy of the personal data we are processing about you.
  • Rectification: You may request us to rectify and/or complete inaccurate or incomplete personal data.

  • Restriction of processing: You may also request the restriction of our processing of your personal data in accordance with data protection legislation. If the processing has been restricted, such personal data will, with the exception of storage, only be processed with your consent, for the exercise or defence of legal claims, the protection of the rights of another person, or for reasons of important public interest.
  • Right to object: You are entitled to object to certain processing activities, including for example processing of your personal data for marketing purposes. You are furthermore, on grounds relating to your particular situation (for example, a specific need for protection of your identity), entitled to object to processing of personal data based on legitimate interests, which we will comply with, unless there exists compelling legitimate grounds for our processing which override your interest, or if our processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
  • Data Portability: If we process your personal data based on consent or based on our performance of a contract, and the processing is carried out by automated means, you may request us to transfer the personal data to you or another controller, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.

Certain limitations exist in the rights provided by the data protection legislation and the rights available to you will depend on the particular circumstances of the processing. You can find more information on this topic on Norwegian Data Protection Authority’s website, which is linked below.
