3 Parties with whom we share personal data

Our service providers, such as Norian and Microsoft Dynamics, may have access to personal data if the personal data is stored by the service provider or in any other way accessible to the provider according to their contract with us.

We will not store personal data longer than necessary for obtaining the purpose of the processing.

Under the Norwegian Accounting Act we are directed to store certain accounting documents for a specific amount of time. When personal data is stored for a specific amount of time in order to fulfil a predefined purpose, we make sure that the personal data is exclusively used for that purpose during that period.

If you have consented to any other processing of personal data, you may also at any time contact us and retract your consent to this processing.

Request access to information: You have the right to request information on the personal data pertaining to you we have on file, as long as this does not conflict with the duty of confidentiality.
