Sharing of Personal Data with third parties

We use third party data processors, who provide us with operational, maintenance or technical services, to collect, store or in other ways process Personal Data on our behalf, such as cloud based identity management providers. We have entered into data processing agreements with all data processors we work with in order to ensure information security. Our use of data processors can involve transfer of Personal Data to data processors located in countries outside the EU/EEA. This can entail that the Personal Data is transferred to a country which does not provide the same #9263478/1 3 (4) degree of data protection as Norway. We will transfer Personal Data to data processors outside the EU/EEA only when sufficient mechanisms for cross-border transfers are in place, for example US Privacy Shield or the EU standard contractual clauses. For more information, please contact jo.ovstaas@oceandata.earth.

You may use one of your social media profiles, such as your Facebook profile, to create a user account on our website, in which case we may be joint data controllers with the relevant social media provider (limited to the Personal Data we control or are given access to). For the relevant social media provider’s use of your Personal Data, we refer you to read its privacy statement. We do not share Personal Data with other third parties unless you have consented to allow us to do so, or for legal reasons. We will not transfer Personal Data to countries outside the EU/EEA unless there is legal basis and only when sufficient mechanisms for cross-border transfers are in place.

Storing of personal data

We retain Personal Data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purpose of the processing or for as long as required by law. For example, this means that Personal Data that we have collected based on your consent is deleted when you withdraw your consent. If the processing is based our legitimate interests, the Personal Data will be deleted when such legitimate interest no longer exist. Personal Data used to perform an agreement with you is deleted as soon as all obligations of the agreement are carried out. We retain customer information for five years, pursuant to the storage obligation in Section 13 of the Norwegian Bookkeeping Act. In the event of outstanding amounts or customer disputes, we may store information for the duration necessary to solve the dispute in court. We store your e-mail address and name if you sign up for our e-mail newsletter. We delete your e-mail address and name immediately if you unsubscribe. You may unsubscribe to our newsletters by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the end of every newsletter you have received.

You may also request your personal data deleted. We will delete your personal data if we do not longer have a legal and legitimate processing purpose.

Further, you have the right to restrict our processing, to object to our processing and to port Personal Data elsewhere when the legal requirements for these rights are fulfilled.

When our legal basis for processing your Personal Data is your consent, it is voluntary to provide your consent and you can withdraw your consent at any time.

To exercise your rights or withdraw your consent, please contact us at jo.ovstaas@oceandata.earth. We will respond to your inquiry as soon as possible, and at the latest within 30 days.
