Privacy policy

DNO ASA is committed to protecting your privacy. We process personal data in accordance with applicable laws and this Privacy Policy.

What personal data we collect

Personal data is data that relates to you as an identifiable person. We collect personal data that you provide to us, such as when you communicate with us or when you sign up to receive our Company announcements.

We may also collect or receive personal data from other sources, such as from our customers, investors, vendors, search engines or other public sources.

We typically collect or receive your name, contact details, job title and business affiliation, but we may also collect or receive other categories of data if required to fulfil the purposes listed below.

Why we use your personal data

We typically use your data for the following purposes:

  • To fulfil our agreements with customers, vendors or business partners;
  • To perform projects in which you are involved;
  • To communicate with you;
  • To maintain our list of business contacts; or
  • To send newsletters and invitations to events by email and other electronic means of communication.

We may also use your personal data for certain purposes that are not incompatible with the purpose for which the data was originally collected or received, such as audits, dispute resolution, bookkeeping and business development.

The legal basis for processing your personal data for these purposes is our legitimate interest in operating our business in a manner common in our industry. If required by law, we will send newsletters and invitations to events only if we have received your consent. You may withdraw your consent at any time by using the unsubscribe function on our website or by contacting us directly.

How we share your personal data

We only grant access to your personal data to people on a need-to-know basis. We may share or give access to your personal data to third parties, such as to our business partners or vendors, to the extent required for us to operate our business in a manner common in our industry.

If necessary, we may transfer your personal data to other entities in the DNO Group outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). We have concluded an intra-group data transfer agreement based on European Union standard contractual clauses for this purpose.

We may also transfer data outside the EEA if we use a service provider who has established or is using data storage facilities outside of the EEA. If so, we will protect your privacy by means of entering into standard contractual clauses with such providers or by ensuring that the provider is certified with the Privacy Shield framework. You can receive a copy of the agreements we have entered into upon request.

We do not sell your data to any third party.

How long we keep your personal data

We keep your personal data for as long as necessary for the purposes listed above. The criteria that we use to determine when to delete your data are:

  • If we still have a business relationship with the company that you are employed or otherwise affiliated with;
  • If you have signed up to receive newsletters or invitations to events and have not yet unsubscribed;
  • If you are involved in one of our pending projects; or
  • If we are obliged by law, such as by the Norwegian Bookkeeping Act, to keep documents which contain your personal data.

Your privacy rights

You may request access to a copy of your data; to have incorrect data about you corrected, deleted or restricted from processing; to receive or have your data transferred to another party in a machine-readable format; to object to the processing of your data; and to have your data not be subject to fully-automated individual decision making.

Note that conditions and limitations apply to these rights. If you have concerns about our processing of your personal data, you are entitled to lodge a complaint to the Norwegian Supervisory Authority (Datatilsynet), but we hope that you contact us first so that we may provide answers and correct any misunderstandings.
