Privacy and confidentiality policy

This privacy policy describes how we use and protect any information that you give us. We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected. We use your personal data to provide and improve the service. By using the service, you agree to the collection and use of information in accordance with this privacy policy and our cookies policy.

Gathering of non-personal (anonymised) information

We collect non-personally-identifying (anonymised) information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting such information is to better understand how our visitors use our site.

Gathering of personal information

Some of our visitors choose to interact with our website in ways that require us to collect information that can identify a person. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask those who join the Ereignis Institute to provide an email address.

We collect such personally-identifying information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with this website. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. You may refuse to supply information that can identify you; however, such refusal may prevent you from engaging in certain activities, such as studying with the Ereignis Institute.

All of the information that is collected on ereignis.no will be handled in accordance with GDPR legislation.

Protection of personal information

We only disclose your personal data to members of our administration and outside stakeholders with a legitimate claim to such information. In each case we only disclose personally-identifying information when it is necessary to provide services to you and on the condition that your information is not in turn disclosed to others, or when we are required to do so by law. In some cases the data handler may be located outside of your home country. By using our website you consent to the transfer of such information to them.

We take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.

Use of personal information

We only use the information you provide in the relevant context. We do not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying information to anyone. Those who register as members on our website may occasionally receive e-mails from us about the functioning of our services.

We would like to send you further information via e-mail, and will ask for your consent to do so. If you later decide that you do not wish to be contacted for this purpose, please click the unsubscribe link at the bottom of the e-mail.

We rely on one or more of the following processing conditions:

Retention of personal information

We will retain your personal information on our systems only for as long as we need to. We keep contact information (such as mailing list information) until a user unsubscribes or requests that we delete that information from our live systems. If you choose to unsubscribe from a mailing list, we may keep certain limited information about you so that we may honour your request. If you would like to request deletion of your account and associated data, please send an e-mail with the subject header “Request permanent account deletion” to ereignis@remove­this.tankebanen.no.
