Management of personal information and use of cookies

 

Ferd AS is the data controller for your personal data. You can contact us using post@ferd.no.

When you sign up to receive information materials from us, we process your name and email. If you sign up to receive information materials in paper format, we process your street address as well. The legal basis for this is that it is necessary in order for us to fulfil the agreement to send you information materials. Your personal data is stored until you tell us you no longer wish to receive the materials, and you can cancel your subscription whenever you wish.

When you provide us with your contact information via our website so that we can contact you, we have a legitimate interest in processing your personal data in order to be able to contact you. Your personal data is stored in accordance with the applicable legislation and regulations.

Your personal data will not be used for marketing purposes and will neither be sold nor disclosed to third parties. We use data processors in order to help us inter alia to send out materials and to operate our website and IT equipment. The data processors we use are subject to our right of instruction, and we always ensure that statutory safeguards and data processor agreements are in place.

You have a right to access the personal data we hold about you, to correct it, to restrict its processing, to receive your data in portable format, to protest about its processing, and to have it deleted. You also have the right to complain about the processing of your data to the Norwegian Data Protection Authority, but we hope you will contact us first so that we can see if there is anything we can do better.
