We mainly collect personal information from you directly.  For example, via enquiries from you, your activity on our website etc, or where we have received your information via your employer because you are designated as a contact person for one of our partners.  However, in some cases, Smedvig also obtains information from third parties.  These can be sources from publicly available registers or from the authorities.  We will try to notify you of such a collection as soon as we can, unless the collection of the information is required by law, notification is impossible or very difficult, or it is obvious that we have collected such information about you.

Test environment

We aim to offer secure, stable and user-friendly IT systems that contain correct data.  We test and develop our IT solutions in a separate test environment.  We strive for anonymisation or pseudonymisation, but in some cases it may be necessary for us to use real personal information for testing purposes.  We ensure satisfactory information security and real personal information is deleted or anonymised after testing.

How long do we store your personal information?

Personal data is stored for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purpose of its collection or statutory processing requirements.  Personal information is stored in connection with identification checks and money laundering checks, both of which are stored for a period of 5 years after the customer relationship has ended (in line with current money laundering regulations).  Personal information stored in connection with product and service providers is stored as long as the person is affiliated with the product or service provider.

We will delete your personal information if you request it, unless we have a legal or statutory obligation to store / process your personal information.

Do others have access to your personal information?

Personal information may be made available to those third parties who assist us with the operation of our IT systems.  When we give third parties access to personal data in this way, we make use of data processor agreements, to ensure that the third parties company with our requirements for the processing of personal data in line with the relevant laws. 

Furthermore, we share your personal information with public authorities as necessary to fulfil our legal obligations. 

In addition, we do not share your personal information with third parties without your consent.

Information Security

We take information security seriously and have put in place appropriate measures to protect the integrity and availability of your personal information.  Access to your personal information is limited to employees who have a service need for such access.  We provide training to employees and third parties where relevant to ensure awareness of Smedvig’s privacy regulations.

  • Processing of payments
  • Analysis of data and web traffic patterns

We enter into a data processor agreement with all third parties acting in such capacity, who process personal data on our behalf.  The data processor may not process your personal data in any way other than that which is agreed in the data processor agreement.
