(CEO) and Egil Hollund
PURPOSE AND LEGAL FRAMEWORK
Personal data (usually names, email addresses, and in some cases telephone numbers and postal addresses) are collected to enable us to communicate with potential, existing and former members and clients. Also, this allows us to provide the necessary services to our members/clients and to follow up on complaints. Other personal data can also be collected, but these are also processed within the framework of GDPR Art. 6: Lawfulness of processing
Processing of personal data is carried out following the Norwegian Personal Data Act/GDPR. This includes collecting, registration, processing, filing and disclosure, or a combination of these.
HOW DO WE COLLECT PERSONAL DATA?
Some personal data is collected voluntarily in the sense that our members/users provide us with their data to use our services (i.e. carry out bookings). The SCC is obliged by law to assemble and file some types of information (i.e. accounting documents following the Norwegian Bookkeeping Act). In most cases, we collect personal data by utilising standardised forms on our webpage, email, telephone, SMS, or social media. Other types of communication may also occur.
HOW DO WE MAKE USE OF PERSONAL DATA?
Data on persons who participate in our Resource Groups are available on our webpage, pending on consent from the member concerned. Names of individuals listed as contact persons of our member companies are publicly available on our web page, pending approval. Names of participants at our meetings and conferences are open to the other participants of the actual conference.
Anyone can subscribe to our newsletter and other email-based information. It is up to the individual subscriber whether he/she wants to share personal data. Email addresses are not shared with others. Everyone can at any time withdraw their consent to receive our newsletter. This can be done by ticking the box «Meld meg av nyhetsbrevet» at the bottom of every newsletter.
The SCC issues the Magazine Rosenkilden. The magazine is distributed to all members registered in our database, and to a large number of companies, organisations and public bodies in the Stavanger-region.
DO WE SHARE PERSONAL DATA WITH OTHERS?
A certain degree of sharing of personal data is necessary (and sometimes mandatory) for us to carry out our activities. This will typically be in our dealings with IT suppliers (i.e. web hotel, email, software and cloud-based services), accounting/revision, and various legally mandatory reporting to state and other public authorities.
hosts the sites www.naeringsforeningen.no and www.stavangerchamber.com. Also, we use Nets and Netaxept
for services related to payments/money transfers, and HubSpot
for MMS, CRM and distribution of emails. We have formal agreements with these suppliers, and we are confident that they all comply with the GDPR regulations.
HOW DO WE SECURE PERSONAL DATA?
Data security is of high priority for the SCC. We take great care in handling personal data safely and securely. All our suppliers within ICT and software are well established and highly recognised companies.
