When transferring personal data outside the EU/EEA, we will ensure that there is a legal basis for the transfer and that the level of protection is equivalent to that applicable within the EU/EEA, either by ensuring that the country has an adequate level of protection, that we have taken adequate protective measures such as the European Commission’s standard contractual clauses, that the data subjects have given their explicit consent or that the transfer is necessary with regards to the purposes set out in article 49 of the GDPR.

8 Your rights

8.1 Our responsibility for your rights

In the capacity of data controller, we are responsible for ensuring that your personal data is processed in compliance with applicable laws. In relation to applicable data protection laws, you as a data subject may have the following rights in relation to your personal data. To exercise these rights, you may contact us at provided contact details in the end of this Privacy Notice.


For specific data privacy rights of data subjects, see country specific privacy notices in the end of this Privacy Notice.


Where GDPR are applicable we have an obligation to respond to your requests to exercise your rights within one month of receiving your request. If your request is complex or if we have received many requests, we have the right to extend this deadline to two months. If we are unable to take the action you request within one month, we will inform you of the reason for the delay and of your right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority and to seek judicial remedy. You will not be charged for requesting information, for communication or measures that we carry out. However, if your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, we may charge an administrative fee for providing the information or taking the action requested or refuse to act on your request altogether.

8.2 Your right to access, rectification, erasure and restriction

Right to access to your personal data. You have the right to obtain confirmation on whether we process personal data about you and receive a copy of such data as well as information on how we process your personal data.


Right to request a copy of the European Commission’s standard contractual clauses and its appendices that we use with any third parties, as mentioned in section 7.


Right to rectification. You have the right to rectify any inaccurate personal data we process about you or have any incomplete personal data about you completed.

Right to erasure of your personal data. You have the right to request that we delete your personal data if there is no compelling reason for us to continue processing the data. Personal data should therefore be erased if:

  • it is no longer needed for the purpose for which we collected it;
  • we process your personal data based on consent provided by you and you withdraw your consent;
  • you object to us processing your data based on a legitimate interest assessment and we have no compelling interest that overrides your interests and rights;
  • we have processed the personal data unlawfully; or
  • we have a legal obligation to erase the personal data.

However, there may be legal requirements or other compelling reasons that prevent us from immediately erasing your personal data. We will then stop processing your personal data for purposes other than in compliance with the law or where there are no compelling legitimate grounds for doing so.


Restriction of processing. This means that we temporarily restrict the processing of your data. You may have the right to request restriction when:

  • you consider your data to be inaccurate and you have requested rectification as defined above, while we establish the accuracy of the data;
  • the processing is unlawful, and you do not want the data to be erased;
  • as the personal data controller, we no longer need the personal data for our processing purposes, but you need them to be able to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim; or
  • you have objected to the processing as defined below, while waiting for us to consider whether our legitimate interests override yours.

We will take all reasonable measures possible to notify everyone who has received personal data as stated in section 6 above if we have rectified, erased or restricted access to your personal data after you have requested us to do so. If you request information on recipients of your personal data, we will inform you about the recipients.

Right to object to processing. You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data if our processing is based upon legitimate interests. If you object to such processing, we will cease processing of your personal data, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing overriding your interests, or if the data is needed for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims. You always have the right to opt out of receiving direct marketing from us.


Right to information. You have the right to receive transparent information about how we process your personal data.


Right to withdraw your consent. When we need your consent in order to process your personal data, you always have the right to withdraw such consent at any time by contacting us. Withdrawing consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.


This applies where the GDPR is applicable. If consent is used as a legal basis based on other countries' Data Privacy legislation (outside the EU/EEA), the rules for the respective country's interpretation of consent will apply. We aim to, to the extent possible, handle consent based on EU/EEA interpretation also for processing’s based on consent as legal baes for processing from other countries' Data Privacy legislation, where the GDPR is not applicable.


Right to data portability. You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format, and you may have that data ported directly to another controller, where such personal data is processed based on your consent or to perform a contract with you.


Right to complain. If you are not satisfied with our processing of your personal data, do not hesitate to contact us at the email-address under section 12, and label the email “Privacy Complaint”. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority if you are not satisfied with our processing of your personal data. For EU and EEA countries, you can find your local supervisory authority here.


Please note that a number of these rights only apply in certain circumstances, and all these rights may be limited by law. If you wish to exercise your rights or have any questions regarding the processing of your personal data, please contact us using the contact details set out in section 12.

9 Protection of your personal data

We always want you to feel confident about providing us with your personal data. We have therefore taken appropriate security measures to protect your personal data against unauthorized access, alteration and erasure.


Even though we work hard to protect your data, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable. Should a security breach occur that may materially impact you or your personal data, e.g. risk of fraud or identity theft, we will contact you to explain what action you can take to mitigate potential adverse effects of the breach.


We strongly advise you to be cautious and to protect your own personal data. You are responsible for keeping your passwords confidential and to avoid others from observing your personal data when using our services in public spaces.
