We are concerned that you, as a user of our services, understand how we handle the data we collect about you. This privacy statement explains what data we collect, how we do it, and what we use the data for.


 Personal information is data and assessments that can be linked to an individual. It can be, for example, name, place of residence, telephone number, e-mail address and IP address, or a combination of these that makes it possible to estimate which person is behind the data.

 All use of personal data is considered as processing of personal data, such as collection, registration, compilation, storage and disclosure or a combination of these. The processing of personal data is regulated by the Personal Data Act.

 Forus Næringspark AS is responsible for the processing of personal data processed in connection with the use of our services and products, and the personal data we collect and process for the purpose stated below. The fact that Forus Næringspark AS is responsible for processing primarily means that it is Forus Næringspark AS who has responsibilities and obligations under the Personal Data Act.

 If Forus Næringspark AS chooses another company that is responsible for processing personal data, ie data about you, then we call it a data processor. In cases where we use data processors, we must ensure that we have entered into data processor agreements that regulate how the data processor can process data that is made available. The standard for this is that the agreement with the data processor may only process personal data on Forus Næringspark AS's behalf and for clearly defined purposes, as the personal data processing regulations require.
