PRIVACY POLICY
northernhorizon.no

 

This Privacy Policy aims to provide you with information on how your personal data is processed during your visits to our website, as well as when you contact our company or use our services. It serves to provide you with the information mentioned in Article 13 of the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons concerning the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (“GDPR“). This Privacy Policy is informative and does not impose any obligations on you (it is not a regulation or a contract).

 

Who is the controller of your personal data?

  1. The controller of your personal data is Northern Horizon AS, Hovedveien 27, 9760 Nordvågen.
  2. For any matters related to personal data protection, you can contact us via email at: [email protected]

 

How do we ensure the security of your personal data?

  1. Your personal data is processed in accordance with the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons concerning the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (“GDPR“) and other currently applicable data protection laws.
  2. We apply the required technical and organizational measures by national and EU law to ensure the protection of processed personal data and secure personal data from unauthorized access, unauthorized acquisition, processing in violation of the regulations, and alteration, loss, or destruction.
  3. Providing personal data is voluntary but necessary to use the functionalities of the website that require it, as well as to conclude a contract related to the use of our services and issue accounting documents related to the concluded contract.
  4. In situations where the basis for processing personal data is consent, its absence will prevent us from taking action to which this consent relates. You can withdraw your consent at any time; however, this will not affect the legality of processing your personal data based on consent before its withdrawal.

 

For what purpose and on what basis do we process your personal data, and how long will we store it? 

We process your personal data primarily to provide the services we offer and perform the contracts concluded this way, as well as to take actions before their conclusion. We also process your personal data to provide electronic services related to your use of our website. Your personal data may be processed for the following purposes:

 

  1. Provision of services

Your personal data provided by you in connection with using our company’s services (in particular: first name and last name, address [street, building number, apartment number, city, country], email address, phone number, and in the case of entrepreneurs, also the company name and address and VAT number) is or may be processed by us for the following purposes and on the following legal bases:

  1. performance of the service and execution of the concluded contract, as well as taking actions at your request before its conclusion (Article 6(1)(b) GDPR),
  2. possible determination, pursuit, or defense against claims that may arise from your use of our services, as well as other purposes (e.g., archiving for evidence purposes), which constitute our legitimate interest (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR),
  3. issuing and storing accounting documents and considering possible complaints, according to applicable regulations (Article 6(1)(c) GDPR).

We will process your personal data for the duration of the contract unless further data storage is required by generally applicable laws (e.g., tax, accounting regulations) or is justified by the statute of limitations or our overriding interest resulting from the exercise of legitimate interests. In each case, the longer personal data storage period will prevail.

 

  1. Electronic services

Your personal data provided by you or other data collected in connection with your use of our website (such as, in particular: your IP address, request URL, device identifier, time spent on individual pages, browser type, browser language, date and time of website use, screen resolution, operating system type and version), is or may be processed by us for the following purposes and on the following legal bases:

  1. provision of electronic services based on the electronic services contract, as well as taking actions at your request before concluding the contract (Article 6(1)(b) GDPR),
  2. possible determination, pursuit, or defense against claims that may arise from your use of our website, as well as other purposes (e.g., archiving for evidence purposes), which constitute our legitimate interest (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR).

We will process your personal data for the duration of the electronic services provision, unless further data storage is justified by the statute of limitations or generally applicable laws or is justified by our overriding interest resulting from the exercise of legitimate interests. In each case, the longer personal data storage period will prevail.

 

  1. Marketing and website analytics

Your personal data provided by you or other data collected in connection with your use of our website, is or may be processed by us for the following purposes and on the following legal bases:

  1. marketing our services, which constitutes our legitimate interest in conducting marketing activities (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR), provided that sending commercial information or direct marketing using telecommunications terminal equipment and automatic calling systems is only possible with your prior consent (granting this consent is voluntary but necessary for sending commercial information). In such cases, the basis for processing personal data may also be your consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR)
  2. creating summaries, analyses, and statistics, including reporting, service development planning, development works, creating statistical models, which constitute our legitimate interest in improving and developing the website (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR),
  3. possible determination, pursuit, or defense against claims that may arise from your use of our website, as well as other purposes (e.g., archiving for evidence purposes), which constitute our legitimate interest (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR).

Our marketing activities may involve presenting you with offers and advertisements tailored to you based on profiling (e.g., based on your activity on our website), allowing us to better tailor the offer to specific groups of our customers and your preferences. However, our marketing activities do not significantly affect you, and we believe that displaying personalized ads is more beneficial than presenting an offer unrelated to customer needs. Your personal data for marketing activities conducted based on consent will be processed until its withdrawal, while for marketing activities conducted based on a legitimate interest, until an objection is raised, unless further storage (in both cases) is justified by the statute of limitations or generally applicable laws or justified by our overriding interest resulting from the exercise of legitimate interests.

 

  1. Newsletter

Your personal data provided by you in connection with subscribing to the Newsletter is or may be processed by us for the following purposes and on the following legal bases:

  1. provision of the Newsletter service based on the regulations, consisting of sending commercial information to the email address provided by you (Article 6(1)(b) GDPR),
  2. possible determination, pursuit, or defense against claims that may arise from your use of the website, as well as other purposes (e.g., archiving for evidence purposes), which constitute our legitimate interest (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR).

We will process your personal data for the duration of the Newsletter subscription, unless further data storage is justified by the statute of limitations or generally applicable laws or is justified by our overriding interest resulting from the exercise of legitimate interests. In each case, the longer personal data storage period will prevail.

 

  1. Email or phone contact

Your personal data provided by you in connection with email or phone contact (i.e., data necessary to establish and maintain contact), as well as collected during further communication, is or may be processed by us for the following purposes and on the following legal bases:

  1. responding to email or phone contact, which constitutes our legitimate interest (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR),
  2. taking actions at your request before concluding a contract if the communication concerns this (Article 6(1)(b) GDPR),
  3. possible determination, pursuit, or defense against claims that may arise from your use of the website, as well as other purposes (e.g., archiving for evidence purposes), which constitute our legitimate interest (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR).

We will process your personal data until the correspondence is conducted, unless further data storage is justified by the statute of limitations or generally applicable laws or justified by the overriding interest of the Controller resulting from the exercise of legitimate interests. In each case, the longer personal data storage period will prevail.
