Privacy policy

This privacy policy explains how Vestre AS collects and uses data on visitors to our websites. The policy contains information to which you are entitled when data is collected from our website and general information on how we process personal data.

Vestre’s CEO is the controller for the company’s processing of personal data. It is voluntary for visitors to our websites to provide personal data in connection with services such as receiving newsletters and catalogues. The basis for processing is consent by the individual, unless specified otherwise.

Web analytics and cookies:

As an important part of the work to create a user-friendly website, we look at the user patterns of those who use it. To analyse this data, we use the analysis tool Google Analytics.

Google Analytics uses cookies (small text files that the website saves on the user’s computer) that register users’ IP addresses and provide data on each user’s movements online. Examples of details the statistics give us: how many people visit different pages, how long the visit lasts, the websites from which the users come and the browsers used. None of the cookies permits us to link data about your use of the website to you as an individual. Data linked to cookies is automatically erased 14 months after it has been registered. You can manage your use of cookies yourself.

The data collected by Google Analytics is stored on Google’s servers in the USA. Data received is subject to the Google privacy policy.

An IP address is defined as personal data because it can be traced back to specific hardware and thus to an individual. A user’s IP address is anonymised before the data is saved and processed by Google. An anonymised IP address can therefore not be used to identity an individual user.

Newsletters:

Our newsletters are based on a contract. Our newsletters offer news on all our specialist areas, services and events. We collect your email address when you subscribe to our newsletters. This is mandatory. You can also provide your first and last names, but this is voluntary. We use the data you provide to adapt the information we send you as best we can. For example, some events are only relevant to certain companies and jobs. You make a contract with us when you ask to receive newsletters via our order page. This data is not shared with other companies, and it is erased when we receive notification that you no longer want to receive information from us. The data is also erased if we receive feedback that your email address is no longer active. MailChimp is the processor for the newsletter. When we distribute newsletters, we keep statistics on their use, how many people read them and what is read. This permits us to give our readers the most relevant information possible.

Requesting a catalogue:

We send catalogues only if requested to do so by a user on our website. Addresses and other data are not saved, and you are only added to the newsletter list if you particularly ask to be added.

Rights:

Everyone who asks for it is entitled to basic information on how a company processes personal data. In this policy, we state which data we collect and how it is used. If you are registered in one of Vestre’s systems, you are entitled to have access to your own personal data. You may also ask to have inadequate or inaccurate data rectified or erased. Your request will be processed within 30 days. All inquiries regarding access to personal data may be sent to [email protected]
