We take privacy seriously and are concerned with safeguarding privacy legislation so that personal information is up to date and confidentiality is safeguarded.

This privacy statement provides information about what personal information is collected, how it is collected and what rights you have when personal information about you is registered with us. The CEO is primarily responsible for our processing of personal data.


What processing of personal data do we do?


1. Customer information

We process personal information that is necessary for our deliveries of products and services to you as a customer or as a potential customer. Registration of personal information is a prerequisite for our deliveries.

Among the information that is processed are name, birth number, plant address, invoice address, e-mail address, mobile phone and information about the products and services you buy from us, such as power consumption per. period and more.

Birth number is the basis for updating the name, address, postcode and postal address from the Central Population Register.

It is possible to subscribe to electronic communication where we present information and current offers. This is voluntary and means that you receive this per. email or text message. In order to receive electronic communication, it is necessary to have registered an e-mail address / mobile phone on My page.

You can withdraw your consent to electronic communication at any time, and mailings will be stopped.

In the contexts where events are required that require registration, electronic registration will require consent for registration.

The cookie does not contain an IP address and its useful life is 6 months if you do not delete it. You can set your browser so that only the web pages you want are allowed to store cookies on your computer.

Statistics and other technology solutions, which only collect anonymous information, help us to continuously improve our internet pages, and tell us which pages we should pay the most attention to and which should be deleted.

4. Disclosure of personal information

For customers who purchase electric power, certain personal information will be handed over to the grid company that is responsible for the power grid to the plant address. As of May 2018, this will take place directly to the grid owner, while in the first quarter of 2019 this will be replaced by a new national register, ELHUB, which will be a common register as a link between all power suppliers and grid owners.

For customers who have entered into agreements for other products and services (from online store, charging of electric vehicles, photovoltaic systems, smart home solutions or mobile telephony), certain personal information may be handed over to subcontractors in connection with installation and / or operation of such products / services.

Data is provided in anonymous form to ENOVA based on the information collected from customers who have entered into an agreement on participation in ENOVA’s pilot project. The pilot project assesses the effects of real-time reporting of electricity consumption in connection with smart home solutions.

5. Deletion of data

Power customers

After the introduction of ELHUB is completed in 2019 (joint register as a link between grid owners and power suppliers), we will store your settlement information three years after the end of the customer relationship in accordance with the Energy Act Regulations amending the regulations on power sales and grid services. Other personal information for the customer relationship is stored for 5 years after the invoicing has been completed in accordance with the Accounting Act. Until all settlement tasks related to the period prior to the introduction of ELHUB have been completed, historical information will not be deleted as a result of legitimate interest, as in connection with the conversion to automatic meter reading, discrepancies can be discovered between invoiced / stipulated and actual meter reading which may lead to additional claims or reimbursement.

Other customer relationships

Personal information related to other customer relationships will be stored as long as a service runs or the complaint deadline has not expired. Information will be stored for a minimum of 5 years from the time of purchase to meet the requirements for retention in the Accounting Act.
