Cookies and Web Beacons
The site may contain links to third-party websites (like Workable, Facebook, Instagram) and applications of interest, including advertisements and external services, that are not affiliated with us. Once you have used these links to leave the site, any information you provide to these third parties is not covered by this Privacy Notice, and we cannot guarantee the safety and privacy of your information.

Controls for do-not-track features
Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems include a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. No uniform technology standard for recognizing and implementing DNT signals has been finalized. As such, we do not currently respond to DNT browser signals or any other mechanism that automatically communicates your choice not to be tracked online. If a standard for online tracking is adopted that we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised version of this Privacy Notice. Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems include a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. If you set the DNT signal on your browser, we will respond to such DNT browser signals.
Where do we store your Personal Data?
Where we store your personal data in our own systems, it is stored in Norway.
The data that we collect from you and process using third-party service providers for employment or business-related administrative purposes may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside of the country in which you are located or outside of the European Economic Area ("EEA"). It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfillment of your orders, the processing of your payment details, and the provision of support services. Some recipients located outside the EEA are certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and others may be located in countries for which the European Commission has issued adequacy decisions. In each case, the transfer is thereby recognized as providing an adequate level of data protection from a European data protection law perspective. Where necessary we establish (e.g. by implementing Standard Contractual Clauses) that recipients of Employee Data located outside the EEA provide an adequate level of data protection for the Employee Data and that appropriate technical and organizational security measures are in place to protect Employee Data. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storage, or processing.
If you would like further information please contact us (see ‘How to contact us?’ below). We will not otherwise transfer your personal data outside of the United Kingdom or EEA or to any organization (or subordinate bodies) governed by public international law or which is set up under any agreement between two or more countries.
How long do we store your Personal Data?
We generally keep your personal data only as long as needed to fulfill the purpose we collected it for, which may be an ongoing purpose and/or for our essential business purposes such as complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes, and maintaining the performance of our services.
We hold your personal data compliant with the legal retention periods or, if applicable, the duration of your engagement. The retention period for all the data in our organization is 60 months. We will retain your information as necessary to comply with legal, accounting, or regulatory requirements.
Security and Safety
We use administrative, technical, and physical security measures to help protect your personal information. While we have taken reasonable steps to secure the personal information you provide to us, please be aware that despite our efforts, no security measures are perfect or impenetrable, and no method of data transmission can be guaranteed against any interception or other type of misuse. Any information disclosed online is vulnerable to interception and misuse by unauthorized parties. Therefore, we cannot guarantee complete security if you provide personal information.
We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted through any online means, therefore any transmission remains at your own risk.
