Why do we process your data?

We process your personal data to be able to communicate with relevant persons as well as to gain insight into your visits on our websites.

Are we allowed to process your data?

When we process your personal data in connection with sending out newsletters or general e-mail correspondence, it is on the basis of one of the following

  • You have actively agreed to receive newsletters from us (Article 6, Subsection 1, Para (a))
  • You are a client with EGN (Article 6, Subsection 1, Para (b))
  • We are in an open dialogue through general e-mail correspondence (Article 6, Subsection 1, Para (f))

When we process your information in connection with visits to our website, it is because

  • You have actively allowed us to do so (consent – Article 6, Subsection 1, Para (a))

Categories of personal data

We process the following categories of your personal data:

  • General personal data (also referred to as Article 6 data), e.g. name, e-mail address and IP address.

Recipients or categories of recipients

We disclose or forward your personal data to the following recipients:

  • We disclose your personal data to select data processors who send out newsletters, track traffic on our website, etc.

Transfer to recipients in third countries, including international organisations

In certain circumstances, we transfer your personal data to recipients outside the EU and EEA.

For example, in connection with web tracking, we transfer personal data to third countries (i.e. countries outside the EU/EEA) as we use Google Analytics, who store parts of its data in the US.           

However, Google Analytics has been self-certified in accordance with the Privacy Shield agreement. In layman's terms, this means that it is the EU Commission's assessment that a sufficiently high level of protection of personal data is present even though the data is outside the EU/EEA, in this case in he US.


How do we obtain your personal data?

We have your personal data either because you have provided it yourself, for example by signing up for our newsletter or ordering an e-book, or because you have accepted our use of cookies during a visit to our website.


Storage of your personal data

Cookies used for web tracking have different expiration dates.

E-mails in connection with newsletters are not erased until you as a recipient no longer find them relevant and therefore unsubscribe from the newsletters.

E-mails from general correspondence are erased after three years. If an e-mail contains special category data, such as information on health, it will be erased immediately.


Automated decision-making, including profiling

We do not make use of automated decision-making, including profiling.


The right to withdraw consent

If for example in connection with signing up for a newsletter, you have given consent, you are free to withdraw this consent at any time. You can do so in the actual newsletters you receive.

In relation to cookies, visit this website to learn how to disable them:

If you choose to withdraw your consent, this has no bearing on the lawfulness of our processing of your personal data based on your previously given consent and up until the time of withdrawal. If you withdraw your consent, it thus only becomes effective from this point in time.
